WILMINGTON, Del., April 28, 2008 - DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions today announced a price increase of 15 percent on all grades of DuPont(tm) Butacite(r) polyvinyl butyral interlayer including The Wedge(tm), SentryGlas(r) Plus interlayer, and Spallshield(r) composite films effective June 1, 2008.

The price increase will be applied globally.

DuPont said that this action is required due to the continued increases in petrochemical feedstock, energy, freight and distribution costs. "The raw materials and energy costs increases experienced in the fourth quarter of 2007 are expected to continue throughout 2008. This pricing action is necessary to offset margin loss from the higher costs," said Stephen L. Cox, vice president, Glass Laminating Solutions and Vinyls --DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers. DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions provides materials, services and innovations for a better, safer world. The business operates within the DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers strategic business unit, part of DuPont's $5.3 billion Performance Materials growth segment.
