Huber Announces Global Price Increase for Martinal® Fine Precipitated Alumina Trihydrate (ATH)

ATLANTA, GA (U.S.), September 1, 2016 – Martinswerk GmbH, a subsidiary of J.M. Huber Corporation, announces a global price increase for its Martinal® fine precipitated alumina trihydrate (ATH) products, effective October 1, 2016, or as current contracts allow.  Prices will increase depending on product grade and packaging.  Martinswerk GmbH is affiliated with the Fire Retardant Additives (FRA) business unit of Huber Engineered Materials (HEM).

While Martinswerk continues to focus on minimizing the inflationary impact on its comprehensive line-up of Martinal® fine precipitated ATH grades, cost increases in materials, packaging, regulatory compliance, labor and capital investments necessitate the pricing adjustment.  

Huber has been a trusted supplier of flame retardants and smoke suppressants for more than 30 years and produces value-added alumina trihydrate, magnesium hydroxide, molybdate compounds and nitrogen and phosphorus products for a variety of end-use applications, including wire and cable, reinforced polyester molding and pultrusion, engineering thermoplastics, roofing, silicone rubber, coatings and carpet backing.
