Energy & Raw Material Surcharges (Update)

Dear customers,

The Corona pandemic and the associated interrupted supply chains have already severely affected the cost structures and delivery capabilities of many companies. The war in Ukraine and the resulting energy crisis as well as the significantly impaired supply of raw materials are now massively exacerbating the availability for many products.

Even we can no longer compensate for increases of 50 – 100 %. Only by means of a flexible “Energy & Raw Material Surcharges” is it possible for us to cope with this tense situation. For all invoices from 15.04.2022 onwards, we have to charge an energy & raw material surcharge on the following product groups (based on the sales prices):

  • 10 % on dental gypsum, duplicating & kneading silicones
  • 15 % on pumice powder, Poliresin, glass beads, denture acrylics, 3D printing resins
  • 20 % on dental waxes, investment materials, expansion liquid and alloys
  • 40 % on Aluminium oxide

The energy & raw material surcharges are valid until further notice, but will of course be regularly re-evaluated, adjusted or cancelled by us with regard to their amount or their general necessity.

Please note the currently valid surcharges (on the above-mentioned product groups) on our website There will be no further separate notifications regarding the adjusted energy & raw material surcharges.

In view of the current situation, we ask for your understanding for this unavoidable measure and hope for continued good cooperation.


Yours sincerely

Markus Rehse, Managment
