SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China-based Huizhou MMA plans to shut its 90,000 tonne/year methyl methacrylate (MMA) unit in Guangdong province in end-August for a turnaround, a company source said on Friday.

The turnaround is expected to last for 25 days, the source added.

Japan’s Mitsubishi Rayon Co (MRC) is now looking into MMA imports from its subsidiaries in Thailand to prevent a disruption of supply to its customers, the source said.

Huizhou MMA is a subsidiary of MRC.

The majority of China’s MMA production goes into cast and acrylic sheet applications.
