China Abrasive Materials Weekly Price (16-22 Sep.): WFA Production In Henan Is Postponed
On September 16, the National Minority Games ended in Zhengzhou Province, but most of the white fused alumina producers in Xinmi, Gongyi and Xiangyang Areas did not return to a large-scale resumption of production. According to industry sources, the operating rate of white fused alumina enterprises in Henan Province before the National Day may remain at a low level. In addition, Shandong Liaocheng white fused alumina production enterprises have limited production capacity due to local power supply plants. Therefore, it is expected that in the coming week, due to the reduction in supply, the market price of white fused alumina will continue to operate smoothly.
This week, the price of high-grade cooked bauxite in Sanmenxia Area of Henan Province began to rise, and the price increase reached 50-60 yuan/ton, which further increased the production cost of brown fused alumina which was already high, and also played a strong supporting role to the weak brown fused alumina market in the near future. It is expected that the market price of brown fused alumina abrasives will run smoothly in the coming week.
3. Black Silicon Carbide
This week, China's black silicon carbide market is running smoothly. Although market demand is still weak, there is no sign of further shrinking. The price of black silicon carbide original block and granular sand is basically stable.
4. Green Silicon Carbide
This week, except for a small part of the green silicon carbide micropowder products used for semiconductor precision processing, due to the strong market demand, the other green silicon carbide original blocks, granular sand and other products performed more stable.
