SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Daelim Industrial plans to shut its high density polyethylene (HDPE) facility at Yeosu, South Korea, on 15 March for a two-week scheduled turnaround, a source close to the company said on Monday.

The facility consisting of two 130,000 tonne/year plants produce mainly yarn and blow moulding grade HDPE, the source said.

The producer’s No 3 PE line at the same site with a 170,000 tonne/year capacity was not included in the March turnaround schedule, he said.

The No 3 line is dedicated to produce metallocene linear low density PE (MLLDPE) and HDPE pipe grades alternatively, and it has been scheduled to produce MLLDPE throughout March, he added.
