In the Oct. 11 issue of the Plastics News report on rising resin prices (“The price of change. Ouch! Absorbing the resin effect,” Page 1), Bill Bowie of Resin Technologies Inc. is quoted saying, “At some point [processors] are going to say they can't make products at these prices anymore.”
I can remember when low density polyethylene was 13 cents per pound. It's waaaaay over that now and processors are still making product.
