SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Tianjin Soda has been running its 40,000 tonne/year polyacetal or polyoxymethylene (POM) facility at low rates since December, with one of the plant's two lines shut, a company source said on Monday.
The source did not provide the exact run rate of the operating line, which has a 20,000 tonne/year POM capacity.
Poor sales are forcing POM producers to cut output, according to market players.
Other POM producers in Asia include Polyplastics, Mitsubishi Engineering Plastics and Ticona
