Stretch film comes in varying gauges, colors and can be used in numerous applications. The main variable and starting point for stretch films is blown versus cast.
Blown stretch film, or blown stretch wrap as it's also known, is created by blowing heated resin out vertically into a bubble. The bubble is then transformed into rolls while it is cooled by the surrounding air.
Cast stretch film, or cast stretch wrap as it's also known, is created by feeding a sheet of heated resin along a rolling path with chilled rollers. The cooling solidifies the film, and it is made into large rolls. Features and Benefits:
Blown film is tougher and has less of a chance to puncture than cast. This occurs due to the slower cooling process, which allows the molecules in blown film to spread out as opposed to aligning in long lines like in cast. Blown film also has a higher level of cling than cast, making it stick to itself easier.

U.S. PE Market says we are down $0.04 in September.



"resin market activity improved, transactional volume rose and prices were mixed"

"Export markets are seeing sporadic activity, but volumes seem to be strong as the Houston resin warehouses are jammed full of material, presumably along with orders for international shipment – if not, watch out!"

"Polyethylene trading was much better, a fairly high volume of material changed hands"

"Prices seemed to find support early in the week and even up-ticked $.01/lb as good"

"bearishness returned to the PE arena as another wave of material hit the market, sending most grades down a net penny"

"Polyethylene contracts still seem to be settling down the $.04/lb nominated early in the month."

Stretch Film and Poly Prices Down for Sept

Image
Spot Polyethylene activity improved, but fell short of exciting. Processors have been working down their inventories, only procuring minimally as needed while waiting for prices to continue lower.
This trend might be coming to an end as downstream resin supplies have thinned substantially, and considering the proposed $.04/lb September decrease, contract PE prices are now down $.13/lb during 2015.
