SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Chinese producer China National BlueStar plans to restart its 40,000 tonne/year polyacetal (POM) line in Shanghai by October, a company source said on Tuesday.

The line was shut on 20 August for scheduled maintenance and the restart was delayed, the source added, without giving any reason for the delay.

The restart, which will bring more supply, will be welcomed as October is traditionally a season with stronger demand from increased automobile manufacturing activity, a local distributor said.
