SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan's Nan Ya Plastics is currently ramping up production at its two epoxy resins units in Kunshan, China, after the plants restarted on 6 July, as scheduled, a company source said on Thursday.

The plants, with a total capacity of 280,000 tonnes/year, were shut in late June to minimise losses amid poo
r demand and narrowing margins.

One of the units is currently operating at half of its normal run rate, while the other is
running at 90% of capacity, the source added.

Epoxy resins are used as paints in the automotive, marine and aeronautical industries and electrical laminates to linings for storage tanks.
