The listing covers August prices of polymers including NBR, EPDM, butyl, butadiene and SBR as well as chemicals such as insoluble sulphur; calcium carbonate; various accelerators, anti-oxidants; steelcord; beadwire; nylon and various grades of carbon black.
The prices are tracked in seven cities including Beijing, Qingdao, Hubei and Guangzhou, and are listed in yuan/tonne.
