LONDON (ICIS news)--Polimeri Europa has kept its force majeure in effect this week on acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) supplies from the Mantova, Italy, unit as works to get the plant back onstream continues, a company official said on Friday.

It was still not clear when the contractual caveat may be lifted and production may resume but repair works continue, the official said.

Polimeri was forced to close the 45,000 tonne/year ABS unit unexpectedly on 15 October following a power cut at the Mantova site. The outage only affected the Italian styrenics producer's ABS train with production of all other polymers running smoothly.
