ATLANTA—Huber Carbonates L.L.C., a subsidiary of J.M. Huber Corp., increased prices for its industrial calcium carbonate products, effective Jan. 1.
Most prices will increase an average of 5-10 percent, depending on product and packaging, according to a company release.
The increase is due to cost increases in materials, packaging, freight, regulatory compliance, labor and capital investments, Huber said.
The industrial calcium carbonate products are used in consumer and industrial applications, including building materials, drilling fluids, rubber, thermoset composites, thermoplastics, luxury vinyl tile, swimming pool aggregate, cultured marble, paints and coatings, and adhesives, caulks and sealants.
