SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Thai MMA is planning to shut its two 90,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) lines in Map Ta Phut for a 10-day turnaround, a company source said on Thursday.

Its No 1 MMA line will be taken off line for 10 days in late August, said the source.

Its No 2 MMA line will be taken off line for 10 days in December, but the final dates have not been fixed, said the source.
