ATLANTA, December 3 /CNW/ - Huber Engineered Materials (HEM), part of
J.M. Huber Corporation, today announced a price increase for its dental, paper
and rubber grade silica and silicates.
The increase is effective Jan. 1, 2008, or as current contracts allow.
Prices will increase an average of five to eight percent - dependent upon the
product grade and form. Increases in energy, raw materials costs and rising
investments in meeting regulatory requirements cannot be offset by continuing
productivity improvements and production efficiencies, Huber officials said.
