Albemarle Raises Prices of Specialty Aluminas

Increase Includes Flame Retardants, Fillers, Pigments and Ceramic Oxides

BATON ROUGE, La., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Albemarle Corporation (NYSE: ALB), the world leader in the development and marketing of aluminum trihydroxide and other specialty aluminas for flame retardants, fillers and other industrial applications, will increase the prices for all of its specialty aluminas up to 15 percent, effective globally on all shipment made on or after January 1, 2008, or as contracts allow. The increases are needed to help offset the rapidly escalating raw material prices, raw material freight costs and energy costs required to manufacture these products.

-- MARTIFIN(R) specialty alumina pigments

-- MARTOXID(R) aluminum oxide products
