[Expressed by www.ferro-alloys.cn]

It is learned that, recently, the price of metal calcium wire, the raw material, rose slightly. Now, （Ca≥97%，Φ：7-7.5mm）is 19,000-20,000 yuan per ton. However, demand for solid pure calcium cored wire is stable. The orders that the most of manufacturers have received are from regular steel mills and have to be completed by the end of the lunar new year. For this reason, the price of solid pure calcium cored wire has not been adjusted yet. The market transaction statistics shows that, now, in Henan, Jiangsu and Zhejiang, the mainstream transaction price of solid pure calcium cored wire Ca98%min∮9mm remains at 9,700 - 10,200 yuan per ton.

There is no obvious price fluctuation in other cored wire products yet. Now, the mainstream transaction price of silicon calcium cored wire Ca30Si58∮13mm is 10,500-11,000 yuan per ton, Ca28Si50∮13mm is 7,850-8,500 yuan per ton, Ca28Si55∮13mm is 9,700-10,000 yuan per ton and Ca30Si60∮13mm is 10,500-11,000 yuan per ton; silicon magnesium cored wire Si40Mg28Re2∮13mm is 11,500-12,500 yuan per ton; ferro calcium cored wire Ca30∮13mm is 8,600-8,800 yuan per ton and Ca30∮30mm is 10,000-10,500 yuan per ton; sulphur cored wire S98%∮13mm is 6,500-6,800 yuan per ton; ferroboron cored wire B17%∮13mm is 18,500-19,000 yuan per ton; ferrotitanium cored wire FeTi30%min∮13mm is 11,500-11,800 yuan per ton and FeTi70%min∮13mm is 25,000-25,800 yuan per ton; seamless metal calcium cored wire Ca98%min∮9mm is 98,000-10,800 yuan per ton and Ca98%min∮10mm is 14,800-15,500 yuan per ton; carbon cored wire C96%∮13mm is 5,900-6,200 yuan per ton, C97%∮13mm is 5,800-6,100 yuan per ton and C98%∮13mm is 5,800-6,100 yuan per ton; nodularizer cored wire is 10,000-11,000 yuan per ton.
