Polyurethanes: Feedstocks only slightly higher in March

Producers´ calls for hikes of up to EUR 300/t for polyurethane feedstocks were mostly ignored by western European buyers in March, and most notations rose only slightly higher, the newsletter Plastics Information Europe (PIE, Bad Homburg / Germany; www.pieweb.com) says in a current price report.

Prices for polymeric grades increased only by EUR 10/t, while pure grades were flat. TDI added EUR 35/t on average, in line with February, and flexible polyols added EUR 35/t after a rollover last month. With the building season still dormant, rigid grades nevertheless gained EUR 25/t in the ninth consecutive month of rising notations, says PIE.
