Huber Announces Price Increase For Fire Retardant Additives

ATLANTA, GA, Dec. 2, 2011 — Huber Engineered Materials, a division of J.M. Huber Corporation, announces a price increase for its entire line of alumina trihydrate (ATH), magnesium hydroxide (MDH) and cast polymer products.  The increase will be effective Jan. 1, 2012, or as current contracts allow.  Prices will increase from three to eight percent depending on product grade, packaging and freight terms.

“Huber continues to work diligently to improve productivity and processing efficiencies to minimize the impact of continued rising raw material, energy, packaging and freight costs,” says Don Mills, Director of Sales for Huber’s Fire Retardant Additives business unit.  “Unfortunately, despite these efforts, a price increase is necessary to ensure the high level of product quality and consistency and industry-leading service our customers expect.”

ATH and MDH are non-halogen fire retardant additives used in a variety of reinforced plastics, engineering thermoplastics, rubber, carpet backing, cast polymer, coatings, roofing, adhesives, insulator and wire and cable jacketing applications.
