Corona has caused a great deal of disruption and the raw materials market has been completely disrupted. The main reasons is the energy crisis, container shortage, staff issues and logistic bottlenecks. In addition to high price increases, availability and quality are also at risk. Something that, for example, our sector association NVZ has already issued a warning about. With a lot of hard work, deliveries have hardly been affected so far, something we are very proud of.

Temporary Surcharge

Temporary surcharges

In extreme cases, we have had to accommodate price changes in the past through a flexible surcharge. This surcharge can sometimes go up but can also be reduced. Currently, a surcharge applies to products containing larger quantities of:

  • Butylglycol and related solvents
  • Organic acids such as citric acid and sulfamic acid
  • Phosphoric & Hydrochloric acid
  • Sodium & Potassium Hydroxide
  • Sodium Hypochlorite
  • Pure raw materials and empty containers

These raw materials can be found in chapter 2 of the product SDS. At the bottom of this article you will find a list of Spectro items to which a temporary surcharge applies.

You can request the actual surcharge. You can also find it on your order confirmation. Do you disagree with this surcharge or would you rather wait? After receiving the order confirmation you can cancel your order (in writing) free of charge within 24 hours.
