SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thai MMA will continue to run its two 90,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) lines in Map Ta Phut at 95% capacity until September because of a feedstock shortage, a company source said on Thursday.

The company originally planned to operate the plant at a lower 95% rate in May and June, added the source.

Thai MMA has feedstock issues with its supplier, the source said without providing further details.

As a result, the company may raise its July offers to domestic customers, as priority will be given to captive consumption, he added.

Thai MMA is a joint venture between Japan’s Mitsubishi Rayon Co (MRC) and Thailand’s Siam Cement Group (SCG).
