Several steel mills have raised prices, predicting that steel prices will still rise

1. Futures and spot market prices of steel products

On July 20, the price of the domestic steel market rose mainly, and the black futures rose on the 20th, which boosted market confidence to a certain extent, and the spot steel market followed suit. Many domestic steel mills raised the price of construction steel products by 10-40 yuan/ton.

Hot-rolled coils: On July 20, the average price of 4.75mm hot-rolled coils in major cities in China was 3,921 yuan/ton, an increase of 17 yuan/ton from the previous trading day. This week, the output of hot-rolled coils increased slightly, and the inventory of steel mills and the social inventory were both declining. It can be seen that the demand side has improved slightly. The strong operation of raw materials is also one of the factors leading to price increases. The demand side in the later period is still relatively optimistic. On the whole, it is expected that the price of hot-rolled coils in China may fluctuate strongly in the short term.

Cold-rolled coils: On July 20, the average price of 1.0mm cold coils in major cities in China was 4,538 yuan/ton, an increase of 8 yuan/ton from the previous trading day. On the 20th, the black futures market fluctuated strongly, and market confidence was boosted to a certain extent. Most merchants raised their quotations slightly, but the actual transaction price had a certain room for discount. In terms of social inventory, the social inventory of cold-rolled coils was 1.2213 million tons, an increase of 20,800 tons week-on-week. On the whole, it is expected that the price of cold rolling may continue to be adjusted within a narrow range.

3. Steel market price forecast

On the supply side: This week, the output of the five major types of steel products was 9.3916 million tons, an increase of 65,800 tons week-on-week. Among them, the output of rebar, wire rod, hot-rolled coil and cold-rolled coil increased slightly, while the output of medium and heavy plate decreased slightly.

In terms of inventory: This week, the total inventory of steel products was 16.1942 million tons, an increase of 4,400 tons week-on-week. Among them, the inventory of steel mills was 4.5127 million tons, a decrease of 97,100 tons from the previous week; the social inventory was 11.6815 million tons, an increase of 101,500 tons from the previous week.

The demand for steel products in the off-season is unstable, the transaction of low-priced resources is acceptable, and the transaction of high-priced resources is difficult. At the same time, under the low profit status of steel mills, the output fluctuations are not large, and the inventory of raw materials and fuels remains low. Considering the tight supply of coking coal in some regions, the recent coking coal and coke markets have been operating relatively strongly, and the overall cost of steel has risen.

In short, under the high temperature and rainy off-season, the steel market maintains a weak balance between supply and demand, and there is little pressure on inventory accumulation. Driven by policies and costs, confidence in the steel market has recovered, and short-term steel prices may fluctuate slightly.

Color-coated aluminum coil

Color-coated aluminum coil refers to painting and coloring the surface of aluminum coil. Many are commonly used, such as Polyester (PE) color-coated aluminum coil, high durable Polyester color-coated aluminum coil, fluorocarbon (PVDF) color-coated aluminum coil, etc. It is widely used in aluminum-plastic panels, roofs and walls, blinds, composite panels, aluminum ceilings, decorative lighting, cans, furniture, etc.

Color-coated aluminum coil has a rich color range and can be applied whether in civil residences, large commercial outlets or large-scale exhibition centers. Its good plasticity and machining performance make it an ideal material for various architectural image. Color-coated aluminum coil not only provides architects, designers and owners with a space for personalized exterior walls and colorful ceilings, but also becomes the most ideal material for architectural image.

The process of color-coated aluminum coil is that after multiple baking and coating on the surface of aluminum plate, the formed polyester (PE), HDP resin (High durable Polyester) or fluorocarbon coating (PVDF) can form a continuous solid film which can be firmly attached, with protective and decorative features. It is an anti-UV coating. Polyester resin uses the ester bond-containing polymer resin in the main chain as the monomer, and adds alkyd resinglycerol-phthalic resin. UV absorbers can be divided into matte and high-gloss series according to the gloss. The products have rich color, good gloss and flatness, as well as superior texture and feel, increasing the sense of layering and three-dimensionality. The coating can not only withstand ultraviolet radiation, wind, rain, frost, snow and freezing, but also temperature differences, freeze-thaw cycles, corrosive gases and microorganisms.

Features of color-coated aluminum coil


Because of the features of aluminum plate, the surface after painting is smooth, with good gloss, no roller marks and beautiful appearance.


Color-coated aluminum panels have various patterns, such as wood grain, marble veins, and many printed patterns, which can also be customized according to customer requirements.

3.Durability and long service life

Because aluminum plate has corrosion resistance and its surface coating is formed by high temperature baking, its gloss retention is high, the color stability is good, and the chromatic aberration is little. The service life of polyester (PE) paint can reach 7-10 years, high durable Polyester paint can reach more than 15 years, and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) paint can reach more than 20-25 years.

4.Excellent machining performance

Due to the good ductility and bending performance of aluminum, it can be processed and bent into various angles. In the four seasons, changes in wind pressure, temperature, humidity and other factors will not cause it to bend, deform, expand, etc.

5.Environmentally-friendly and recyclable

Aluminum has strong corrosion resistance, so it will not produce pollution and then protect the environment, and 80% materials can be recycled after the use.
