Polymer Price Know-How Snippets: June 2022

June has been a tricky time for fuel prices – we’ve all seen the effects at the petrol pumps, and crude oil prices have crept up from $106 in April to nearly $120.  Mike Boswell, Ian Chisnall and Katherine White of Plastribution discuss the downstream impact on the UK plastics industry in this month’s Know-How Snippets.

Plastribution distributes thermoplastic raw materials for injection moulding, extrusion and blow moulding industries. Sourced from major petrochemical producers, the company supplies a full range of polyolefins, styrenics, engineering polymers, specialities, masterbatches and custom compounds. They also produce  a monthly publication called Price Know-How, giving customers up-to-date information on polymer pricing and availability.

This year, Plastribution is making Price Know-How even more accessible with the introduction of Price Know-How Snippets. Price Know-How Snippets is a new video content platform created by Plastribution. The company aims to get pertinent information to buyers at the start of each month and sees a panel of experts discuss the factors that are likely to affect polymer pricing and availability.

Watch the discussion below, where Katherine White, Commercial Director for Thermoplastics, Mike Boswell, Managing Director at Plastribution, and Ian Chisnall, Product Manager for Polyolefins at Plastribution discuss what’s been happening to polymer and monomer supply chains, and how they expect changes to develop in coming weeks.
