LONDON (ICIS)--Unylon will shut down its 48,000 tonne/year nylon 6 (or polyamide 6) plant in Guben, Germany, for planned maintenance in August, a company source said on Tuesday.

The outage will begin on 1 August and last for one week.

The shutdown is not expected to have a large impact on the European supply/demand balance as it will coincide with end-user holiday outages, which traditionally take place in August.
