EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- March 25, 2013

Berry Plastics Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY), a leading global manufacturer and
marketer of value-added plastic packaging and engineered materials, is proud
to be exhibiting at the 2013 Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX). Scheduled for
April 9-11 in Hamburg, Germany, AIX is the world’s largest event dedicated to
the aircraft interiors industry.

“Berry’s Polyken and Patco tapes have been providing reliable quality and
exceptional performance for Aerospace OEMs, as well as aircraft maintenance
and refurbishment for decades,” said Berry Plastics’ Aerospace Sales Manager,
Mark Britton. “Our trusted brands include an assortment of double-coated
carpet and mounting tapes, moisture barrier tapes, surface protection/masking
tapes, cargo pit tapes, and other tapes used in aviation maintenance, repair,
and overhaul applications.”

“We’re excited to introduce two new products at the AIX show – Polyken 345SW
Speed Tape and Patco 5565FR Surface Protection Tape,” added Britton. “Both are
premium tapes that offer unique performance properties for very demanding
aerospace applications.”

New Polyken 345SW, commonly referred to in the industry as “Speed Tape,”
provides a superior barrier for air, moisture, solvents, and corrosion. The
foil backing reflects heat and light and conforms to irregular surfaces and
contours. With a specially formulated acrylic adhesive, 345SW has excellent
quick stick for a superior bond to a variety of substrates. Ideal for
extremely high and low temperature applications, 345SW meets FAR 25.853(a)
flammability tests, as well as SAE AMS-T-23397B, and L-T-80B.

Patco 5565FR takes surface protection to the next level with a polyethylene
film backing and low-tack acrylic adhesive that meets FAR 25.853(a)
flammability tests. Patco 5565FR provides abrasion, moisture and solvent
resistance in aircraft surface protection applications during assembly and
maintenance. Both conformable and easy to apply, 5565FR can be supplied with
6” perforations making installation faster and easier.

high performance Polyken and Patco Tapes for aerospace applications, visit the
