Huber Carbonates is increasing prices for its industrial calcium carbonate products from 1 January 2018 or as current contracts allow.
Most prices will increase an average of 5-10% depending on product and packaging.
The company says that while it continues to focus on minimising the inflationary impact on its ground calcium carbonate business, cost increases in materials, packaging, freight, regulatory compliance, labour and capital investments necessitate the pricing adjustment.
Huber’s industrial calcium carbonate products are used in a variety of consumer and industrial applications, including thermoset composites, thermoplastics, cultured marble, paints and coatings, and adhesives.
At SAMPE 2018 in Long Beach, Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will exhibit its advanced nonwovens, including the Tecnofire fire protection range, nano-coated materials and coated materials and Optiveil lightweight veils which aid surface finish and composite fabrication.
