Huber Engineered Materials announced that it has acquired the Kemgard flame retardant and smoke suppressant business of Sherwin-Williams. This addition of the Kemgard portfolio strengthens Huber’s current alumina trihydrate and magnesium hydroxide product portfolio and leverages Huber’s expertise in offering a wider spectrum of non-halogen flame retardant solutions.

The Kemgard products will continue to be manufactured in Coffeyville, Kan., and brand grades and product specifications will remain the same.
