"resin trading remained slower than average, very
limited availability offered at relatively high
prices has turned most buyers away from the market."
"There are of course those processors that simply need resin to run and have little choice but to pay current prices."
"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."
"The $.03/lb Polyethylene price increase is being invoiced on September contract shipments,"
"PE buyers are balking at the high asking prices, instead leaning on their heavy inventory purchases from the past couple months. Traders are very wary of taking on speculative inventory at this time"
"Polyethylene producers should secure their $.03/lb price increase, which was accepted in the spot market during August, but some are already starting to wonder how long it might last."
LLDPE PRICES STEADY "Polyethylene trading activity slowed and prices were steady across the board. Buyers backed away since many PE grades rallied as much as $.07/lb over the past 7 weeks"
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."

PVC flat for August, no change.
Once again the PE resin markets settled contract

significant increases announced earlier in the year.

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.

Just wanted to reach out to you and let you know that after having your Evolution wrap machine using XP Pre-Stretched film for close to 2 years, we are very satisfied with its performance. One of my biggest concerns overseeing our night crew is giving them reliable and consistent tools to make their job as efficient as possible. Quite honestly, I don’t want them coming to me complaining about a machine that doesn’t work. Mission Accomplished!
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)
