BREAKING NEWS LLDPE
Polyethylene price increase postponed
Several major Polyethylene producers pushed off the intended implementation of their $.05/lb price increase from November to December - this increase was initially nominated for October.
Trade Reports November 2015
"PE contracts roll flat in November and the twice delayed $.05/lb increase is now slated for Dec."
"PE exports are still shipping at a rapid rate"
"LLDPE shipping volumes are challenged by soft international resin markets and the strong value of the US Dollar."
"Natural Gas futures eek out a small gain"
"Polyethylene trading remained active"
"LLDPE buyers procuring material for early Dec, getting ahead of any potential negotiating friction early next month when producers will attempt their 3rd shot at the nickel increase."
"LLDPE film grades were in good demand and prices rose"
"Given weak energy and international resin markets, traders are apprehensive and not looking to make large purchases without firm customer orders."
5 CENTS THE HOLY GRAIL "Polyethylene contracts will
be steady in Nov and producers will instead pursue
their $.05/lb price increase in Dec."
ATTEMPT TO HALT PRICE EROSION IS ON "PE contracts have been down a net $.13/lb during 2015, producers will try to pare the losses by implementing the delayed $.05/lb in December."
"Polyethylene volume was modestly higher"
Trade Reports November 2015
ONE SEER’S FORECAST “Polyethylene prices are not going to move upwards unless oil prices approach $60 a barrel, and early projections for 2016 are of prices in the $50 range.” The domestic PE price advantage has resulted in major buying domestically. Exports have largely stayed at a healthy 20%.

How to play a volatile stretch
Western Plastics OFFERS DISTRIBUTORS LOWER MINIMUMS/SHORTER LEADTIMES FOR IMMEDIATE BILLING
ASK A LOADED QUESTION "So what is the current
price for stretch? That is always a loaded question,
bring a firm purchase order and we will talk."
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)
