Ascend's nylon 66 plant at 90% capacity; 100% by end-year
HOUSTON, October 18, 2018 (PCW) -- Ascend's polymerization lines at its nylon 66 intermediates plant in Pensacola, FL are running at 90% of capacity and expected to return to 100% by year's end, the company's spokeswoman told PCW on Thursday.
A fire at the plant on Jul 10 knocked out the lines out and Ascend declared force majeure. Its contract customers were put on allocation for nylon 66 polymers, compounds and industrial fibers. The company will not comment on the cause of the fire. -- Xavier A. Cronin
