LONDON (ICIS)--Germany-based chemicals major BASF expects sales control on its butyl acrylate (butyl-A) supply to remain in place until the end of August, a source from the company said on Wednesday.
The acrylates producer had implemented force majeure on butyl-A on 13 June because of production problems at its 110,000 tonne/year Ludwigshafen facility in Germany. It was lifted on 21 June and sales control was put in place.
“We will have sales control during the entire month of August,” the source said.
It added that beyond that it was not yet clear how long the sales control would be in place.
