The Fire Retardant Additives (FRA) business unit, Huber Engineered Materials (HEM) announces its Fine Precipitated Hydrate (FPH) phase two capacity expansion project at the Martinswerk Plant, which was approved in March 2018, is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
This substantial investment increases FPH production capacity at Martinswerk for high quality MARTINAL LEO grades about 20 percent. The expansion project represents the single largest investment made over the last 40 years at Martinswerk and will also result in the delivery of several significant sustainability improvements (e.g. water reduction) in line with company objectives.
“This investment underlines the commitment towards our customers to support their growth and our strategy to grow and strengthen our global halogen-free fire retardants business. We are proud that our engineering and operations teams will complete such a large and complex project on time,” says Martin Schulting, Managing Director of Huber’s Martinswerk FRA business unit in EMEA+I. “We continue to position ourselves as a reliable and trustworthy supplier of high quality products, which bring value to our customers,” he adds.
The MARTINAL LEO fine precipitated alumina hydrate grades offer consistently superior processing properties and serve as the company’s global product platform for its customers.
