Rise! Rise! ! Rise! ! ! In 2017, the tide of chemical product price increases goes from  wave to wave. Towards the end of the year, the price of many raw materials are dropping. When is the epoxy resin coming? !

The price of epoxy is soaring this year, there are already manufacturers offering 30,000 yuan / ton! This is the highest record in 10 years!

Earlier this month, a fire occupying a third of the domestic epichlorohydrin production capacity of Shandong Haili has a serious impact on the entire epoxy industry!

Downstream manufacturers complain, struggling; upstream get rid of years of haze, achieving profits steadily. At the end of the year, how can we deal with epoxy?

Several factors affect the price of epoxy resin:

The price of raw materials

Epoxy resin (Refers to an epoxy resin) contains an important kind of thermosetting resin with two or more than two epoxy groups, with aliphatic, alicyclic or aromatic organic structure as the skeleton, under appropriate conditions, can be cross-linked curing.



Bisphenol A (BPA)

Chinese companies are weak in BPA, with only Sinopec Mitsui (120,000 tons / year), Sinopec Mitsubishi Chemical (150,000 tons / year), Huizhou Zhongxin Chemical Co., Ltd. (25,000 tons / year)

Nantong Star Synthetic Material Co., Ltd. (150,000 tons / year), Changchun Chemical (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. (135,000 tons / year) and Jiangsu Haili Chemical Co., Ltd. (130,000 tons / year).

The increasing costs of resin manufacturing is the main factor of the rising price of epoxy resin.
