Platts daily recycled PET assessments cover clear flake material with a PVC content of 50-100ppm and less than 30ppm.

The price assessments are complemented by a daily rationale and weekly commentary, which explains how the price assessments are reached and delve into the market fundamentals observed throughout the week.
