Dow Building Solutions Announces Price Increases
Dow Building Solutions announced today that due to continuing increases
in energy, feedstocks, raw materials and transportation costs, it
will increase prices in the United States and Canada by up to an
additional 10 percent for all product lines.

percent-and natural gas prices have increased by 40 percent,"
says Torsten Kraef, president and general manager for Dow Building
