Published: Friday, 13 January 2017
Graphite and magnesia prices fall after the cancellation of export duty, while antimony trioxide price increase on restocking. Despite rising raw material costs, calcined alumina prices remained largely unchanged.

In contrast, antimony trioxide spot prices were lifted by
restocking before the spring festival holiday in China.
