BEIJING (Asian Metal) 20 Nov 18 – Currently, mainstream prices for Chinese vanadium pentoxide flake 98%min are RMB497,000-500,000/t (USD33.14-33.34/lb V) Inc-VAT EXW D/A 180 days, down by RMB10,000/t (USD0.67/lb V) from late last week. As prices of downstream vanadium products drop, buyers are hesitant to build the raw material stock.
