UNION CARBIDE TO INCREASE PRICES OF FLEXOL(R) PLASTICIZER EPO

 UNION CARBIDE TO INCREASE PRICES OF FLEXOL(R) PLASTICIZER EPO
 DANBURY, Conn., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Carbide Chemicals and Plastics Company, Inc. (NYSE: UK) announced a price increase, effective July 1, 1992, for Flexol(R) Plasticizer EPO.
 Prices will increase 3 cents per pound for spot and contract customers.
 The company said the price increase reflects costs incurred in capital investments and operating expenses to meet the demands of customers, and to meet environmental and safety standards. In addition, one of the key raw materials, refined soy bean oil, has increased in price in recent months.
 Flexol Plasticizer EPO, Union Carbide's trade name for epoxidized soy bean oil, is used as a plasticizer and stabilizer for a variety of vinyl resin compounds. It is produced at Union Carbide's Peroxymeric Chemicals complex in Taft, La., which achieved ISO 9000 registration in late 1991.
