Roehm extends shutdown in Worms, Germany, “of several methacrylate monomer production units”, the company said in a press release.
The company blamed low demand in Europe for the extension of the shutdown into November.
The company had apparently shut down production in Worms during October because of maintenance.
MMA is a raw material to produce PMMA and cast sheets. The monomer also finds its uses in the production of paints and coatings.
