FRANKFURT, Germany (June 3) — Degussa A.G. is raising prices worldwide for its performance silicas by 7.5 percent to try and offset rising raw material and energy costs. The increase is Degussa's first since 2000. Degussa manufactures and supplies silicas through its Advanced Fillers & Pigments unit, which is also a leading carbon black supplier. Silicas are used as reinforcing fillers in tires, technical rubber goods, plastics, paper and coatings.
