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

06 December 2016

Huber Engineered Materials has announced a price increase in North America for its precipitated alumina trihydrate and magnesium hydroxide products, effective 2 January 2017, or as current contracts allow and explains that prices will increase depending on product grade and packaging.  

According to Huber, this increase includes all Hydral, Hymod and SpaceRite grades of precipitated alumina trihydrate and Vertex and Zerogengrades of magnesium hydroxide. While it continues to focus on minimising the inflationary impact on its comprehensive line-up of precipitated alumina trihydrate and magnesium hydroxide products, cost increases in materials, packaging, regulatory compliance, labour and ongoing capital investments necessitate the pricing adjustment.

Huber says it 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 moulding and pultrusion, engineering thermoplastics, roofing, silicone rubber, coatings and carpet backing.
