The market was around a similar level, but competition was variable and influenced heavily by the quality of the lot offered.
Best style/spec 18.5 micron and finer up to 1% dearer. Some selected best 17.0/18.0 NM lots were very keenly sought after.
Best 19.0 / 19.5 micron unchanged
Best 20.0 / 21.5 micron 1% easier
All Chinese specification types from 16.5 to 21.5 micron were 0.5 to 1% easier with the lighter fault (VM1.0) lots least affected.
Good skirtings are still attracting strong competition in limited supply. Generally firm.
Par to 1% dearer.
