Graphite electrode surcharge

Outokumpu takes graphite electrode surcharge in use

Outokumpu introduces a graphite electrode surcharge for all stainless steel products with immediate effect. The tight supply situation within the graphite electrodes market has led to limited global availability of graphite electrodes and sharp increases in their prices. This has in turn led to significant increase in the production costs of stainless steel.

The electrode surcharge concerns all new contracts and spot-orders in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Australia and Asia as of September 26, 2017. The graphite electrode surcharge will be updated monthly and published on the Outokumpu website at

Your Outokumpu sales representative is available to discuss this issue with you in more detail.
