The article reports on price trends covering polymers in Asia as of February 6, 2006. Asian polyethylene rose in January primarily due to high crude oil prices, tight ethylene supply and firm prices. Traders in southern China were sold out of imported high-density polyethylene blow molding cargoes and expected no new arrivals from the Middle East or Singapore until February. INSET: TARIFFS WILL FALL TO 5%.
