SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Sinopec Beijing Yanshan will shut its 45,000 tonne/year isobutylene isoprene rubber (IIR) plant in Beijing on 15 August for a 30-day turnaround, a company source said on Thursday.

The source was unable to confirm the exact restart date.

The plant is currently operating at 100% capacity, according to a company source.

Sinopec Beijing Yanshan’s impending plant shutdown has strengthened the sentiment of some IIR players as it will help to reduce domestic supply, which is ample, traders said.

Sinopec Beijing Yanshan is a major IIR producer in China.
