Huber Announces North America Price Increase for Precipitated Alumina Trihydrate and Magnesium Hydroxide Grades

ATLANTA, GA (U.S.), December 2, 2016 – Huber Engineered Materials, a division of J.M. Huber Corporation, announces a price increase in North America for its precipitated alumina trihydrate and magnesium hydroxide products, effective January 2, 2017, or as current contracts allow.  Prices will increase depending on product grade and packaging. 

This increase includes all Hydral®, Hymod® and SpaceRite® grades of precipitated alumina trihydrate and Vertex® and Zerogen® grades of magnesium hydroxide.  While Huber continues to focus on minimizing the inflationary impact on its comprehensive line-up of precipitated alumina trihydrate and magnesium hydroxide products, cost increases in materials, packaging, regulatory compliance, labor and ongoing 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, engineered 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.
