SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japanese producer Ishihara Sangyo Kaisha (ISK) is planning to shut its 155,000 tonne/year titanium dioxide (TiO2) plant in Yokkaichi, Japan, in early October for its annual scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Friday.

The maintenance will last for about a month, the source said, adding that ISK is currently running the TiO2 plant at full capacity.

The shutdown is unlikely to affect the market as buying interest is still weak as there is a wide gap between buying and selling ideas, he added.
