SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--Toray Plastics Malaysia (TPM), plans to restart two acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) lines in Penang state early next week as scheduled after a turnaround last month, a company source said on Tuesday.
The two lines – with capacities of 55,000 tonnes/year each – were taken off line in late October for maintenance.
TPM, the largest producer of ABS in southeast Asia, operates a total of six lines at its 330,000 tonne/year plant.
The company runs a 70,000 tonne/year transparent ABS line while its other five lines produce regular ABS resins.
