Huber Engineered Materials has announced a price increase for its industrial calcium carbonate products.
The price increase does not apply to Huber’s food and USP calcium carbonate grades.
The increase is effective from 18 November 2013, or as current contracts allow. Prices will increase an average of four to nine percent depending on product grade and packaging.
“Huber continues to work diligently to improve productivity and processing efficiencies to minimise the impact of rising costs for materials, packaging, freight, logistics and regulatory compliance,” says David Riley, Vice President and General Manager of Huber’s Industrial Calcium Carbonate business unit. “Unfortunately, despite these efforts, a price increase is necessary to ensure the high level of product quality and consistency and industry-leading service our customers expect.”
Huber’s industrial calcium carbonate products are used in a variety of consumer and industrial applications, including adhesives, caulks and sealants, paints and coatings, drilling fluids, rubber, thermoset composites, thermoplastics, swimming pool aggregate and cultured marble.
