Plastic Resin

After stabilizing in April, Polyethylene prices gained ground during May, recouping losses sustained at the end of the first quarter. Motivated by the removal of the $.05/lb Temporary Voluntary Allowance (TVA removal = no price protection), spot PE offers quickly advanced 2-3-cents higher at the beginning of the month. Incredulous buyers were reluctant to chase the market early, but as the month moved along spot offers were sparse. Buyers sentiment turned bullish once they accepted that prices would be higher in June, so they bought up the available spot resin.

New offers came in about -cent higher per week and towards the end of the month, even at the higher prices, few spot railcars were around. Those few offgrade cars that were available were truly substandardnot downgraded prime. This is a good indication that producers cupboards are near bare. Very good demand left some buy orders unfilled, bidding the spot market about 4-cents higher for May. The strength of the spot market into the month-end indicates that contract buyers will also likely pay more in June.

High, and still rising, energy and feedstock costs continue to be the driving factor behind producers need for higher resin prices. Crude oil prices bumped up against $42/barrel, setting all-time record highs in the futures market, before falling back to current levels around $40 in very volatile trade. Natural gas prices for the summer months are around $6.50/mBtu and futures prices for next winter are already priced north of $7.00. Contract Ethylene prices continue to roll over at $.355/lb even as spot ethylene has come off to the high 20s. This has created a troublesome environment of high feedstock costs year-round, rather than just a winter spike of years past.

This sustained period of high energy and feedstock prices are arguably more harmful to producers than the extreme price spikes that we have seen in recent winters. When feedstock prices spike and retreat, perhaps a month of margin is lost from price protection. However, more recently we have been experiencing a resin market that is supported by sustained high feedstock costs, yet still succumbs to interim supply/demand pressures.

When prices break during this period of natural market volatility, losses of margin last longer through the markets time-intensive cycle of recovery. This time it took 3 months, while feedstock costs still remained high. As illustrated in the accompanying price chart, when Polyethylene prices fell at the end of the first quarter, it discouraged producers from making resin in excess of forecasted customer orders. Throttling back production allowed producers to work down resin inventory. Today, this subsequent tight supply again gives them the edge in the game of price.

Rising resin prices during the second quarter have caught many processors by surprise. Since many processors expected seasonal weakness in both feedstock and resin prices, they also have drawn their inventories down. Their low inventory levels now make them vulnerable, allowing for higher resin prices. It seems that resin producers have successfully recouped their margin and have now passed the burden downstream.

As individual businesses and the economy in general attempts to recover, there has been a tone of caution at the processor level for fear of losing coveted orders. With the belief that resin prices might have continued lower into the spring and summer, processors did not necessarily push to enforce higher prices to their customers.

Driven largely by Chinas seemingly insatiable demand for resin, international polyethylene resin prices have also been on the rise. If there was significant surplus resin in the US, it could now likely find a home offshore. Hence, underlying foreign demand is supporting the US resin market.

Spot market prices are again at the highs made earlier this year. In addition, major producers have issued yet another $.04/lb increase for July. Initially, this announcement will simply serve to reinforce the TVA removal, but it is too early to indicate whether the $.04/lb increase will come to fruition in July. We need to keep an eye on industry inventory levels and feedstock costs, and the spot market should give us a good gauge of supply/demand/price balance. For at least the next 20-25 days, it appears that the polyethylene market will maintain its strength.

Aminium die casting company From China

Aluminium die casting company metal mirror is a rare piece of craft that had existed even during the Vedic period of Indian history. The myth about the origin and secret of its composition makes it a truly fascinating craft. As traditional as the mirror-making technology is, the artisans’ belief that the composition of the metal mirror is divine and some undisclosed metals alloyed with silver, bronze, copper and tin are responsible for the distortion-free images.

Aluminum die casting company Kannadi is not mass produced and is hand made with all its perfections as how one looks at it? While commercially available glass mirrors reflect an image, because of a silver coating at its rear, Aluminum die casting company Metal Mirror is the only mirror which reflects from the front plane. This had its popularity until the advent of the commercially manufactured glass mirrors which proved to be much cheaper. The demand of Aluminum die casting company Kannadi grew by bounds only a decade ago, especially in foreign countries.

A huge amount of determination, perseverance and patience goes into the making of this enchanting mirror. Mud from the local paddy fields is used for the mould into which the molten alloy mix is poured to cast the mirror and the technique followed is the cire-perdue or the lost wax method of casting. Even with the utmost care, only about 60% of the cast metal mirrors can be salvaged, the rest get damaged in the process of manufacture. The metal mirror is then polished using well-ground, burnt clay powder mixed with special oil on a jute cloth. To achieve a highly reflective surface, polishing can go on from one to several days. When a satisfactory finish is achieved, the mirror is mounted on various models of artistic brass frames.

Aluminum die casting company Kannadi is unique in the make which is patent protected with a ‘Geographical indication tag’.
The British Museum in London has a 45 centimeter tall Aluminum die casting company Metal Mirror in its collection.
The Aluminum die casting company Kannadi is not created from glass but from a combination of special metal alloy.
Many people believe that owning an Aluminum die casting company Metal Mirror brings good luck, wealth and prosperity to one’s lives
Aluminum die casting company Kannadi is one among the eight auspicious items included in the “Astamangalya Set”, which is used for very auspicious occasions like marriage.

Aluminum die casting company Kannada or Aluminum die casting company Metal Mirrors is a very special type of metal mirror produced only in Aluminum die casting company, a village in kerala, south India. Aluminum die casting company metal mirror is a precious inherited gift. The mystery of its metal combination and production is still a secret to, which handed over through generations of a single family.

We are dealing with the very special rate and authentic handicrafts from various parts of China like Aluminum die casting parts, Nettur Jewel box, Balaramapuram handlooms, Pavithra ring and many others…

High Pressure die casting

GC High Pressure die casting
The company supplies diecast components up to 2.5kg in weight in zinc and aluminium alloys to a diverse range of markets including defence, aerospace, construction, electrical, marine, and telecommunications industries.

Design
Extensive expertise built up over more than thirty years in continuous production, enables the best possible component design to be provided, using the latest draughting and solid modelling technology. The company is happy to advise on details of component design, including the improvement and rationalisation of existing components.

Tooling
GC High Pressure Die casting also provides a full mould and toolmaking service.

Quality Assurance
From the first design stage, a quality assurance plan is drawn up covering all aspects of the component. This is updated with knowledge gained during the sampling phase and then formalised and issued to ensure that every stage of production is correctly controlled.

Production
The company has a total of 24 hot and cold chamber machines, with capacities up to 350 tonnes closing force.

Finishing
The high quality of castings produced ensures that minimal, if any, finishing is required before components are plated, painted or powder coated.

THE PROCESSES

        GC High Pressure die casting uses two production techniques depending primarily on the metal being cast.

Cold chamber high pressure die casting
Used for aluminium and its alloys which require a melting temperature too high for the hot chamber force pump mechanism to operate. The metal is melted in a totally separate furnace and transferred by ladle into an extension tube (shot sleeve) leading to the mould tool. From here it is forced into the die by a plunger.

Hot chamber high pressure die casting 
Used principally for casting components in zinc alloys with comparatively low melting points. The metal is melted in a crucible (integral with the diecasting process) and injected into the mould chambers by a force pump mechanism, partially submerged in the molten zinc alloy through a hollow tube (the gooseneck).

THE BENEFITS OF DIECASTING

Strength and rigidity
Diecastings have a strength and rigidity unobtainable in all but the most expensive engineering plastics. Thin sections remain dimensionally stable with the minimum of reinforcement; thick sections do not exhibit sink marks.The ability to mould to close tolerances (± 0.05mm, ±0.002in), with complex features and thin sections (1.5mm min.), with a good surface finish, can substantially reduce time-costly machining and quality control operations, minimise wastage. Compared with forging, diecasting provides higher production rates, with less finishing.

Compared with plastics moulding, diecasting provides greater rigidity, strength, dimensional stability, no moisture uptake and high temperature resistance.

Quality and surface finish
Die castings can provide the ideal combination of fine and complex detail with good surface finish, suitable for plating, painting or fine powder coating.

Cost effective
Die casting provides a highly efficient component production method giving excellent cost/performance effectiveness for components – at both long and short production runs.

Fine surface finish, without voids, is ideal for powder coating, painting or chrome plating to excellent quality.

Die casting is a production method with a short cycle time, excellent repeatability and batch-to-batch consistency.

Is die casting right for your component?

         How do the benefits listed here apply to the needs of your components? It may be that your components would be better injection moulded in one of the wide range of engineering plastics and fillings (glass, carbon and steel fibres). GC Pressure Diecastings is able to supply totally unbiased recommendations since a sister company within the PC Cox Group is a major supplier of plastic moulding.
