RESIN SALES BUZZ "commodity resin markets were
a bit busier, but completed volumes remained below average."
PRICE ADVANCE PE "Over the past couple of months Polyethylene and Polypropylene advanced as much as $.08/lb"
E. VOLATILITY INDEX "The Ethylene market remained volatile and moved higher in active trading."
EXPECT LLDPE INCREASE THIS MONTH "The Polyethylene market saw increased activity and for the first time in more than 3 months average prices slid $.01/lb. Nonetheless, producers should be able to implement their $.03/lb increase in September"
RESIN NOT AWASH "The marketplace is far from awash in resin and many grades are still difficult to source,"
PE HEATS UP FOR NOW "The weather is cooling and the summer is coming to an end - this season’s resin rally could also be finding the same fate. Both Polyethylene and Polypropylene heated up in the beginning of July, scorching $.08/lb gains over the next 7 weeks."
SIMPLE NEEDS "There are of course those processors that simply need resin to run and have little choice but to pay current prices."
SUPPORT FOR LOCAL INCREASE "Polyethylene producers have nominated a $.03/lb price increase for September contracts, while implementation is highly likely, a tinge of uncertainty has arisen due to questionable demand."
RESIN RISE ON CARDS THIS MONTH "in September producers will seek to raise prices by $.03/lb. Supply side fundamentals certainly support the initiative."
The resin markets have already rallied plenty; PE contracts should play catch up in September with a $.03/lb increase."
Packaging Sources September 2014
PVC Film Price Increase
- We have received price increases from our resin and
plasticizer suppliers which have prompted us to announce
a 4% price increase on all PVC Packaging Films which
include Supermarket, Cutterbox, Case Ready, Converter,
Laundry Wrap and Specialty Films. The 4% price will
be effective with any orders on or after Thursday, October
US PVC Film Producer September 2014
Sealed Air announced today
a 5% North American price increase North American
price increases are in response to the continued escalation
of our key raw materials and other input costs, in particular
polyethylene, which all major petrochemical (PE) suppliers
announced will take place September 1. These new price
increases from our suppliers are on top of significant
increases announced earlier in the year. Cumulatively,
since January 2013, the PE suppliers have increased
prices between 13-22%

Watch this space
1. The tool was really easy to use.
2. The stretch wrap held better than the current shrink wrap we are using
3. The associates like the fact that they could walk forward instead of walking backwards which is a great safety feature.
4. The pallets were wrapped quicker due to the shrink wrap being pre-stretched so they don't lose the width of wrap
5. The associates were able to wrap taller pallets because of the tool
6. Associates did not have to bend over as much
7. Some associates were using too much wrap because they were used to using the current wrap.
Overall they like the new wrap as long as the tools are available. We had some associates that ended up using the wrap without the tool because we ran low on wrap for awhile. They said they did not like it because it would rip easier and couldn't wrap as tight. I then explained why those issues were happening and let them test it with the tool. After they tested it with the tool I got the same feedback as above.

This current configuration is fast, uses much less stretch film due to its strength and the machine is dependable. We also love the technical support we get when, at a minimum, is needed.
Continue to use us as a reference for future business. We are very satisfied and would like to help out fellow wholesalers as you see fit. (Read - Free Evolution wrapper)
This is caused by slipping of successive layers of film causing the center of the rolls to push outwards due to the natural pressure of the film. Storing blown film in temperatures above 100 degrees is not recommended.
