Top 3 Causes Of Market Instability

1.) Resin

All resins have the ability to harden under certain conditions - by mixing with a setting agent, heated, or exposed to light. Such materials are highly viscous liquids before solidifying. The range of synthetic resins is huge and includes resins created from thermoplastics like ABS, Nylon, and Polypropylene. Some of these are referred to as resins only in their liquid form – after curing, they are simply called plastics or elastomers. Some resins after hardening can’t be melted or re-used. Different types of resins exist depending on their chemical compounds which define its properties: silicones, epoxies, acrylics, alkyds, and more.

What is resin material made of?

There is a huge variety of different resin materials, both natural and synthetic. Resins consist of long chains of monomers, which form cross-link bonds during the curing process.

What are the different types of resin?

Typically resins are divided into thermosets and thermoplastics based on whether or not the hardening reaction can be reversed. Widely used thermoplastic resins include ABS, polyethylene, polystyrene, and polycarbonate. Most common thermoset resins are polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy, and polyurethane.

Thermoplastic resins are basically the ones that can be melted and then hardened once cooled. Within the molecule chain of such resins, there are extremely strong bonds between molecules. Thermosets, on the contrary, undergo a non-reversible reaction resulting in a hard end product. It is determined by the process called polymerization or cross-linking which takes place in such materials caused by the use of a catalyst, heat or a combination of the two.

How is resin produced?

Production of artificial resins starts from a so-called cracking process, which means that different types of hydrocarbons are heated up to separate molecules. Then polymer compounds are built in order to create a specific resin.

2.) Winter storms at the end of February severely disrupt Polyethylene & Polypropylene production up to 85%.

The storm forced at least 50 major outages and closures, including most Gulf refineries, petrochemical plants, and steam crackers; all three propane dehydrogenation (PDH) units; and resin reactors accounting for an estimated 80 to 85% of all US polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) production.

3.) Gulf Coast logistics disruption with the complete shutdown of the Port of Houston, rail services, resin warehouses and highways.
