Perstorp is unable to fully meet contractual obligations

February 09/2012

(chemmonitor) --  The Sweden-headquartered firm Perstorp was forced to provisionally suspend activity at one of its manufacturing units.

The facility produces chlor-alkali. The closure resulted from a strike at the plant. Shutdown of the unit affected manufacturing rates at the downstream toluene di-isocyanate (TDI) facility.

On 4 February, Perstorp was forced to stop production at its chlor-alkali unit because of the strike and this impacted on its downstream TDI facility.

As a result, availability for its chlor-alkali and TDI products will be limited. TDI supplies are under strict allocation with immediate effect, with a minimum 50% reduction on contractual commitments.

A company source added that there are also allocations of up to 90% for its chlor-alkali products.
The specialty chemical company is trying to minimise any impact on its customers through alternative sourcing, optimisation of stocks and order management.

Perstorps nameplate capacity at the site is 126,000 tonnes/year for TDI and 170,000 tonnes/year for chlorine.
