SINGAPORE (ICIS)--South Korea’s KPX Chemical is running its 210,000 tonne/year polyether polyol plant in Ulsan at full rates after its restart on 10 August, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.

The facility was shut for regular maintenance on 1 August, according to a company source.

As a result of the shutdown, the company currently has low inventories and will have less spot availability for the month of August, the source added.

Polyether polyol is a raw material for making polyurethane foams used in automotive and furniture applications.
