Zhejiang Weitai brought on-stream SBR plant in China

February 18/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Zhejiang Weitai Rubber, has restarted its styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) plant following an extended Lunar New Year holidays, according to Apic-online.

A Polymerupdate source in China informed that, the company has resumed operations at the plant in mid-February, 2020. The plant was shut on January 15, 2020.

Located in Zhejiang province, China, the plant has a production capacity of 100,000 mt/year.

SBR has an excellent combination of functional properties in various applications. This rubber is considered the best general purpose rubber due to the excellent properties of high abrasion resistance and a high percentage of filling.

Butadiene is one of the main feedstocks for the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS).

According to MRC's DataScope report, last year's ABS imports to the Russian market decreased by 4% year on year to 33,700 tonnes. This figure was at the level of 35,200 tonnes in January-December 2018.
