LONDON (ICIS)--Styron has halted production of styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) at its plant in Terneuzen, the Netherlands, to effect motor repairs, a company source said on Tuesday.

"We don't see any impact to customers for orders for the month. We expect it to be back up within the next ten days," the source said, adding that, "clearly we may be producing a little bit less this month."

The plant has a nameplate capacity of 35,000 tonnes/year, according to ICIS data.

SAN is used in a wide variety of end-use markets, including household and sanitary applications, office articles, cosmetic packaging, transparent covers, lighters, sanitary applications and battery housings.
