18 June 2004

Cook Composites and Polymers will increase pricing by $0.05 per pound for its gel coat and resin products, effective July 12, 2004. This increase will apply to all shipments made on or after the effective date. According to Paul Colonna, Vice President for CCP Composites, these changes are attributed to the following factors: The rise in costs of raw materials, based on global demand and subsequent tightening of availability, which specifically affects such product components as styrene monomer, methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA), propylene glycol, isophthalic acid, ethylene glycol, dicyclopentadiene(DCPD), titanium dioxide (Ti02), and maleic acid.
