SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan-based acrylic fibre (AF) producer, Tong Hwa Synthetic Fiber, expects to restart its 56,000 tonne/year plant in Hsinchu on 6 February after completing its maintenance, a company source said on Tuesday.

The company shut the AF plant on 9 January for around a month of maintenance to coincide with the Lunar New Year holiday that begins on 30 January, during which the workers will take their holidays, a company source said.

The restart would see an increase in AF supply not only in the local market but also to the mainland China market, a market source said.
