Gulbrandsen to Increase Tin Catalyst Prices for Polyurethanes

    ORANGEBURG, S.C., Oct. 15 /CNW/ -- Gulbrandsen Chemicals Inc. announced
today that it will increase the price of T-Cat tin catalysts effective
November 15, 2007 or as contracts permit.  The price for T-Cat stannous
octoate products will raise by 15% at that time and the price of dibutyl tin
dilaurate will rise by 10%.
    Gulbrandsen said that this price increase is primarily the result of the
rising cost of raw materials used to produce these products. With London Metal

increases other raw materials this increase becomes necessary.
