Ascend declares "partial" FM on nylon feedstock HMD from Alabama plant
HOUSTON, January 11, 2018 (PCW) -- Chemical giant Ascend Performance Materials has declared a "partial" force majeure on shipments of nylon 66 feedstock HMD (hexamethylene diamine) from its Decatur, AL plant due to extreme cold weather in early Jan and minor operational issues, John Ferguson, the company's director of global business, said in a letter to customers.
The FM is expected to be in place through Feb 2018. "Ascend is assessing the amount of HMD that we will be able to supply you," the letter states. -- Xavier A Cronin
