DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions today announced a global price increase of 10 percent for all grades of DuPont™ Butacite® polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers, DuPont™ SentryGlas® Plus structural interlayers and DuPont™ Spallshield® composite films, effective Oct. 1, 2006.

DuPont stated that this action is required due to the sustained increases in petrochemical feedstock, energy and freight costs.

"Despite recent improvements in natural gas and oil prices, the cumulative increases in petrochemical feedstock, natural gas, energy and transportation costs have eroded profitability to unsustainable levels. Our previous pricing actions, and significant cost and yield improvements, have not kept pace," said Torkel Rhenman, global business director, DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions. "While we will continue to work aggressively to improve costs, we must take action now to ensure our ability to reliably supply service and provide the innovative solutions our customers expect from DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions."
