SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Toray Plastics Malaysia (TPM) restarted its two acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) lines in Penang State this week after maintenance, a source close to the company said.

The two lines, of 55,000 tonne/year each, were shut in early November 2012 for scheduled turnaround.

The lines were initially scheduled to restart in the first half of December 2012, but that was pushed back to late January due to poor market conditions.

TPM operates a total of six lines for a total ABS output of 330,000 tonnes/year.

ABS is a resin used in the manufacturing of toys, consumer electronics, appliances and is also used in the automotive and construction sectors.
