SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Jilantai Salt Chemical shut its 400,000 tonne/year polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant at Jialantai in Inner Mongolia province on 26 June for maintenance, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company was running the plant at 100% of capacity before the shutdown, which is expected to last for about 10 days, the source added.

The producer offered PVC at yuan (CNY) 6,350/tonne ($1,033/tonne) EXW(ex-works) within the province on 26 June, according to Chemease, an ICIS Service in China.

The maintenance of the factory will have some impact on the local PVC market because of reduction in supply, market sources said.
