Thai Company to Suspend Operations at its Three PP Units in January-February

December 26/2011

(chemmonitor) -- The Thailand-based company HMC Polymers intends to close its several units for maintenance works. The facilities are employed in polypropylene (PP) production.

Map Ta Phut (Thailand) is the plants location. Each unit will be closed for about one week. The shutdowns are likely to occur within first two months of 2012.


HMC Polymers is a market leader in specialty polypropylene in Thailand. HMC Polymers established the first polypropylene manufacturing facility in Thailand in 1987 and today's capacity is 450,000 metric tons per annum. In 2006 a decision was made to invest in a Spherizone plant with a production capacity of 300,000 metric tons per annum which will commence operations in mid-2009.

Spherizone is a state-of-the-art polypropylene manufacturing technology that allows the manufacture of innovative resins with properties beyond the known properties of polypropylene.
