Huizhou MMA undertakes unplanned shutdown at MMA plant

February 11/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Huizhou MMA Co, has taken off-stream its methyl methacrylate (MMA) plant for an unspecified reason, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that, the company halted operations at the plant in early-February, 2020. The plant is expected to remain off-line for around one month.

Located at Huizhou, China, the plant has a production capacity of 90,000 mt/year.

We remind that, as MRC reported earlier, Roehm has planned to take off-stream its MMA plant in June 2020. The company is likely to start turnaround at the plant on June 5, 2020. The plant is expected to remain under maintenance for about 10 days. Located in Wesseling, Germany, the plant has a production capacity of 95,000 mt/year.

The principal application, consuming approximately 75% of the MMA, is the manufacture of polymethyl methacrylate acrylic plastics (PMMA). Methyl methacrylate is also used for the production of the co-polymer methyl methacrylate-butadiene-styrene (MBS), used as a modifier for polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

According to MRC's DataScope report, exports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) from Russia totalled 193,700 tonnes in 2019, up by 11% year on year. Imports increased more significantly - by 217% year on year - to 50,900 tonnes.
