If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should
be completed. (Check box if appropriate)

          (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this
          form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
          (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report
          on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or
|X|       portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day
          following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or
          transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form

          calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
          (c) The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q,
10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR or the transition report portion thereof, could not be filed
within the prescribed time period.

The Company will be unable to complete all aspects of its Form 10-K for the
fiscal year ended January 1, 2006 on or prior to the required filing date of
March 17, 2006. This delay has been caused by the Company's having been in
discussions with the Staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission in
connection with the Staff's standard Comment Letter process involving previous
yearly and quarterly filings of the Company. The Company has just recently
resolved the open issues with the Staff and is now in the process of preparing
its 2005 financial statements in accordance with the Staff's comments, including
(i) a restatement of its previously issued financial statements for the years
ended December 28, 2003 and January 2, 2005 and for the quarterly period ended
October 2, 2005, and (ii) an adjustment of how the Company aggregates operating
segments into reportable segments.

The Company expects to file its 10-K within the 15 calendar-day extension

SEC 1344 (03-05)     Persons who are to respond to the collection of information
                     contained in this form are not required to respond unless
                     the form displays a currently valid OMD control number.

            (Name)                   (Area Code)            (Telephone Number)

(2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of
1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the
registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no,
identify report(s). |X| Yes |_| No


(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from
the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the
earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
|X| Yes |_| No

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and
quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate
of the results cannot be made.

See Attachment I for description of anticipated change.

Attachment I

As previously disclosed in Forms 8-K filed as of March 3, 2006 and March 6,
2006, Rogers Corporation (the "Company") had received a standard review letter
from the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") as part of its periodic
examination of public company disclosures. The comments related to the SEC's
review of certain recent public filings.

One of the two open issues, as previously disclosed, was the Company's treatment
of the 2004 fourth quarter positive tax adjustment of $5.0 million, as reported
and explained in the Company's 2004 Form 10-K and March 3, 2005, press release,
and the net tax charge of $0.8 million recorded in the results for 2005. These
one-time, non-cash adjustments to earnings were required to properly state
certain deferred income tax accounts for temporary tax differences that most
likely accumulated over many years. The SEC had questioned the Company's
treatment of including these amounts in earnings in 2004 and 2005 in lieu of
restating prior periods by recording an increase to beginning retained earnings.

As previously disclosed, the accounting issue was first identified while the
Company was completing the 2004 Form 10-K filing. At the time of the 2004 Form
10-K filing and subsequent filings, through extensive efforts undertaken in
completing the filings, it was determined that the adjustments related
substantially to financial periods prior to 2002. However, the exact amounts
could not be definitively attributed to specific periods with absolute
certainty. Therefore, the Company felt the prudent approach was to recognize the
adjustments in the Company's results in the periods identified, hence the
adjustment in the fourth quarter of 2004 and the subsequent adjustments in the
third and fourth quarters of 2005, and to disclose the adjustments with complete
transparency. The effect of these recorded adjustments is consistent with what
was recently disclosed and reconciled in the Company's preliminary fourth
quarter and year-end earnings press release, which was included in the Company's
Form 8-K filed as of March 3, 2006.

Following further discussions with the SEC, on March 3, 2006, Rogers management
concluded that the Company will restate its previously issued financial
statements for the years ended December 28, 2003 and January 2, 2005 and for the
quarterly period ended October 2, 2005 and that those financial statements
should not be relied upon to the extent they are affected by the deferred tax
issue described above. The Company will therefore restate such financial
statements in its Form 10-K filing for the 2005 fiscal year ended January

The Company is currently in the process of finalizing the quantitative impact of
this restatement on prior periods; therefore, a meaningful quantitative analysis
of the restatement cannot be made at this time as the Company is still working
through several material items related to this restatement to determine the
appropriate periods to which it relates.
