Negotiations over PP September prices began this week.
There are no export restrictions for some European producers but a few are still limited due to production shutdowns.
Demand for PP was also strong from some CIS countries.
Deals for homopolymer PP are discussed in a range of €1,040-1,100/tonne FCA (free carrier), on average up by €40/tonne from August.
Deals for copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) are discussed in the range of €1,140 -1,200/tonne FCA.
Negotiations over September shipments of PP random copolymers are held in the range of €1,200-1,260/tonne FCA.
