DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions has announced a price increase of 8-10% on all grades of DuPontTM Butacite and ButaciteG polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer products. The increase is effective 1 January 2011 or as contracts allow. This price increase will be applied globally to all non-list price contracts. While long term trends for raw materials continue upward, this current pricing action is driven by the need to restore favourable reinvestment economics for our Butacite family of products, says Steve Cox, vice president, DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions. DuPont is a science-based products and services company founded in 1802, offering a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture and food; building and construction; communications; and transportation.
