Domo Caproleuna: FM for caprolactam und PA resin from Leuna

Domo Caproleuna (Leuna / Germany) has declared force majeure on PA products from Leuna, due to problems originating with a workers' strike at Total Petrochemicals (Paris La Défense / Frankreich; www.total.com). A Domo spokeswoman told PIE that deliveries to the company's PA customers have had to be reduced by around 30%, as propylene supply from Total's cracker at Leuna cracker is also affected.

The FM applies to the entire PA production chain at the site, from caprolactam to the virgin resin used to produce manmade fibres as and engineering thermoplastics. As PIE went to press, an end to the strike appeared near.
