DOW BIOCIDES ANNOUNCES CANCELLATION OF ALL OFF-LIST PRICES FOR GLUTARALDEHYDE (4/7/08)

April 7, 2008

Dow Biocides, a business group of The Dow Chemical Co. (Dow), has announced the cancellation of ALL off-list prices for all glutaraldehyde products and grades, effective April 1, 2008, or as contracts allow.

"Globally, glutaraldehyde remains in short supply while growth rates remain at record levels,” said Nanette Hermsen, global marketing manager for Dow Biocides. “Costs continue to escalate in this highly regulated industry leading to continued upward cost pressures in the market. These increased pressures make it imperative that the product is at reinvestment levels in order to continue to grow with market demand.”

Glutaraldehyde from Dow Biocides is sold under a number of trade names, including: UCARCIDETM, UCARSANTM, AQUCARTM, GLUTEXTM and as industrial use product named Glutaraldehyde 25% and 50%. Dow also offers the glutaraldehyde products under at least 100 sub-registrations as customer-branded products.
