ATLANTA, GA (US), February 1, 2021 – The Fire Retardant Additives (FRA) division of Huber Engineered Materials (HEM), a portfolio business of J.M. Huber Corporation, announces a global price increase of 7.5% for its Kemgard® smoke suppressants, effective April 1, 2021, or as current contracts allow.

While Huber continues to focus on minimizing the inflationary impact for its Kemgard products, cost increases in raw materials, labor, packaging, regulatory compliance and freight have necessitated this price adjustment.

Huber is a global leader in the production of engineered molybdate compounds.  Its FRA business unit has four manufacturing sites in North America and two in Europe.

Huber has been a trusted supplier of halogen-free flame retardants and smoke suppressants for almost 40 years, manufacturing a large portfolio of value-added Martinal®, Hydral®, Hymod®, Micral® and MoldX® alumina trihydrates; Magnifin®, Vertex® and Zerogen® magnesium hydroxides; and Kemgard® molybdate compounds for a variety of end-use applications, including reinforced polyester molding and pultrusion, engineering thermoplastics, roofing, silicone rubber, wire and cable, coatings and carpet backing.  In addition, Huber produces Martoxid® calcined aluminum oxides, Compalox® specialty oxides, and Pergopak® carriers and matting agents.
