LLDPE Price Increase Pushed Out
Exxon Mobil has issued a letter effectively pushing back the intended implementation of the remaining $.03/lb of the original $.06/lb Polyethylene increase that partially took hold in March. Instead of adding the last $.03/lb in April, they will now shoot for May. Expect other PE producers to follow suit.
Trade Reports April 2017

The “CDI Mid-Cycle Update” was released to inform the market of the “final” LDPE, LLDPE resin prices that are being posted for March). While CDI originally had an estimate for PE resin prices that were flat or unchanged in March, a majority of PE resin buyers and sellers are now indicating the market has implemented a 3 cent per pound price increase.

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)
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.
