What is LLDPE and mLLDPE C6 price assessment?
We assess standard linear low density polyethylene C6 (LLDPE C6) and metallocene linear low density polyethylene C6 (mLLDPE C6). Both are assessed on spot FD NWE on a weekly basis in order to capture spot market liquidity.
LLDPE and mLLDPE C6 are derived from ethylene and 1- hexene comonomer. They are used in a wide range of applications from cast and blown films, extrusion-coating, pipes and cables. They exhibits key characteristics that make it suitable for applications including heavy duty bags, agricultural film and stretch wrap films.
Globally, the linear low density polyethylene market based on a metallocene and/or hexene catalyst is estimated to be over four million mt.
