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.

"The price of oil has risen drastically over the past year-80 percent-and natural gas prices have increased by 40 percent," says Torsten Kraef, president and general manager for Dow Building Solutions. "The building materials industry, like many other Dow businesses, is feeling the pain of this phenomenon at many levels."

The price increases are effective July 1 for all orders shipped on or after July 1 for the following products: Styrofoam™ extruded polystyrene insulations, Dow polyisocyanurate insulations, Dow high-performance underlayment and protection board (Fanfold), Weathermate™ brand housewraps, Styrofoam spray polyurethane insulations, Great Stuff™, Great Stuff Pro™, Enerfoam™, Instatik™ and Tile-Bond™, Froth-Pak™ insulation and sealants, Styrofoam sill seal and Weathermate™ construction tape, straight, flexible and sill pan flashings.

The price increases are effective July 15 for all orders shipped on or after July 15 for the following products: Styrofoam panel core products, Styrofoam oncology board products, Styrofoam surf board products and Trymer™ polyisocyanurate pipe insulations.
