Beginning on June 1, 2019 Ascensus Specialties LLC and its affiliates will begin collecting a surcharge on invoices for the additional 15% tariff on sodium metal implemented on May 10, 2019 by the United States of America. This surcharge will apply to all regions and grades of sodium borohydride and will remain in effect for as long as the increased tariff is in effect. The surcharge will be applied as a flat rate of $USD 0.10 per kg for liquid grades of sodium borohydride and $USD 1.00 per kg for dry grades of sodium borohydride. These surcharges will be shown as a separate line item on invoices for transparency.
