SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Asian adipic acid contracts for March have been rolled over at $1,000-1,050/tonne (€750-787.50/tonne) cost and freight (CFR) NE Asia, unchanged from February due to weak downstream demand, buyers and sellers said on Wednesday.
April term offers have been announced at $1,400/tonne CFR NE Asia on the back of firming feedstock benzene prices.
Adipic acid is used to make nylon 6,6 and polyurethane (PU).
