During the last year, the market has had more shortages than I’ve come across inside my thirty years experience. In the past I have seen sharp price increases, and I have observed several shortages, and delivery problems due to plastic resin allocations from resin suppliers. This is definitely the very first instance I have seen all these issues at one time.
PTFE Rod (TFE) and Kynar are both on allocation.
The two of these resins are in short supply. TheÂ PTFE Sheeting product PTFE (TFE) along with Kynar-PVDFÂ manufacturing requires a mineral called Fluorspar that’s mined in Mongolia and China. The worldwide requirement for this mineral has increased significantly, as well as the supply has tightened. PTFE materials have high heat resistance, excellent chemical resistance and really low co-efficient of friction (slippery) and is utilized within a lot of applications from non-stick fry pots and pans to ptfe tape for use at home. This mineral is the critical raw materials within the production of fluoropolymers, fluorolubricants and many refrigerants.This increased demand mixed with shortage of raw materials is responsible for a dramatic price increase (almost double over the last year), shortages, and we expect both these factors to keep at it in the near future.
