FM-200® Allocation Update

Wilmington, Del., June 1, 2012

Memo to Clean Agent Fire Equipment Distributors, Consultants, AHJs, Users and Customers

We are very excited to announce we are officially lifting the product allocation for FM-200®. Due to strong global demand, FM-200® has been on allocation since late 2010 and we want to thank all of our customers, distributors and end users for your continued support through last year’s FM-200® supply situation.

For the past 18 months, through the hard work and efforts of our manufacturing and supply teams, along with the close coordination with our OEM customers, we have gradually rebuilt our global inventories of FM-200®, while continuing to meet the growing market demand for our DuPont FE brand clean agents. In addition, we have secure commitments for additional raw materials to support our growing future manufacturing requirements and market needs.

The amount of FM-200® we expect to provide to the market in 2012 is greater than historical levels as global market demand continues to grow.

Both of our FM-200® manufacturing sites are running at high production rates, exceeding previous years, and the future outlook for our FE Extinguishing business continues to be excellent. DuPont remains committed to serving and supporting the Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing market with fast, safe, and effective waterless fire extinguishing agents as we have been doing for more than 50 years.

DuPont is a market-driven science company, creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. FM-200® and the DuPont™ FE™ Fire Extinguishing Agents remain a core part of that vision.
