But as the weather gets warmer, the epidemic stability of the second-quarter profit down to about 100-400 yuan, or even dozens of yuan, the enterprises to maintain the main start. This month PP raw material prices down, the cost side to PP non-woven support is OK, to the profit rose to about 1000 yuan.
