BREAKING NEWS The Dow Chemical Company - Polyethylene Price Notification Effective November 1, 2014 USA. Please feel free to contact your Dow Representative should you have any questions regarding this communication. Thanks for your continuing interest and support of Dow products. (Read letter)
PE MARKETS ACTIVE "The resin markets remained
fairly active; quite a number of deals were done and
prices were mixed."
LLDPE UP 3C/LB MORE TO COME IN OCTOBER "Polyethylene contracts are settling up $.03/lb in Sept and at least one producer nominated another $.03/lb effective mid-Oct."
RESIN FLOW "The Polyethylene market saw good activity; there was a healthy flow of offers met with similar demand."
LLDPE YTD 2014 "Since Jan 1, most Polyethylene resins are up $.07/lb in the spot market, LLDPE a bit more.
With the implementation of the September $.03/lb price increase, contracts are also up $.07/lb this year."
BUSIER HALF FOR LLDPE "The resin markets have been much busier the second half of September, bringing completed volumes back above average."
RESIN INCREASE SECURED "Polyethylene producers secured their $.03/lb increase in September and contracts should be flat in October."
US REPORTED HIGH "exports for both groups of commodity resins are challenged by high US prices and sinking oil prices, which have pressured international resin markets."
PE - GOOD BUSINESS TO BE IN - World demand to
rise 4% annually through 2018. Global demand for
polyethylene resins - high density polyethylene
(HDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear
low density polyethylene (LLDPE) - will rise 4
percent per year to 98.9 million metric tons in
Polyethylene will continue to be the most widely used plastic resin in the world, benefitting from its versatility, low cost, easy processability and recyclability. The development of ethylene feedstocks from new sources such as shale gas, coal and biobased materials will also give polyethylene a price or sustainability advantage.
LLDPE will continue to gain market share over LDPE going forward, as LLDPE is the primary beneficiary of metallocene catalyst technology which improves resin performance. Packaging will remain the largest outlet for polyethylene, accounting for a majority of demand in 2018.
North American polyethylene industry will make a resurgence, benefiting from the availability of shale gas resources, which dramatically lower the cost of polyethylene production.

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.
