LONDON (ICIS news)--Polimeri Europa dispatched its first acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) from its Mantova, Italy unit this week after partially restarting production two weeks ago, a company official said on Thursday.
The production was originally brought back onstream at the weekend of 26-27 November, but continuous technical issues meant realigning the production at one line has taken longer than expected.
The producer estimated that it might be able to lift its ABS force majeure from mid-March.
Polimeri was forced to close the ABS unit unexpectedly on 15 October due to a power cut at the Mantova site. The outage only concerned the Italian producer’s ABS production. Production of all other polymers was unaffected.
