LLDPE TRADING QUICKENS "resin trading continued
to transact at a quick rate"
PE HIGHER "Several grades of Polyethylene pressed even higher on price"
RESIN ROLLS FLAT FOR NOW "PE contracts are rolling flat as there was not a unified active price increase on the table for August."
ACTIVE MARKET FOR PE "The spot Polyethylene market remained active"
RESIN GAINS "Supplies continue to tighten, although at a price material could be found. Most PE resins gained another penny, but rising offers are starting to meet steep resistance."
SEPTEMBER LOOKS UP "there is an industry wide (at least) $.03/lb increase nominated for September contracts"
CHUGS ALONG "resin trading chugged along right into mid-month, with Polyethylene more active and firmer"
PE HIGHER ASKING "Upstream resin supplies for both commodity groups are tight so processors really in need of material have little choice but to pay the asking prices."

Sealed Air announced
today a 5% North American price increase North American price increases are in response to
the continued escalation of our key raw materials
and other input costs, in particular polyethylene,
which all major petrochemical (PE) suppliers
announced will take place September 1. These new
price increases from our suppliers are on top of
significant increases announced earlier in the year.
Cumulatively, since January 2013, the PE suppliers
have increased prices between 13-22%

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.

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)
