Midland, MI - September 27, 2005

The Epoxy Products and Intermediates (EP&I) business of The Dow Chemical Company today announced that it will raise off-list prices on a select number of its epoxy intermediate products in North America.

Effective October 15, 2005, or as contract terms allow, off-list prices will increase for allyl chloride by $0.09/lb. and for epichlorohydrin by $0.07/lb. The list and off-list prices for all grades of glycerine will increase by $0.10/lb. All other terms and conditions of sale remain unchanged.

"These price increases are necessary to help us keep pace with the unrelenting escalation in energy and feedstock costs," said Tom Heldt, marketing manager for Epoxy Intermediates. He also cited the supply/demand tightness for these products as a factor in the decision.

Customers interested in learning more about the price increase should contact their local Dow sales representative.
