Force Majeure on the polyamide chain in Brazil
On May 16th, 2012, at around 8.30pm, a fire occurred at our site of Paulinia (SP - Brazil), which severely damaged the electric cabin of our adipic acid production unit.
As a consequence, Rhodia Poliamida e Especialidades is obliged to declare Force Majeure. We are currently investigating all possible alternatives to mitigate the impact on our customers.
Allocation measures are being elaborated as stipulated by the Force Majeure regulation.
Force Majeure will be lifted as soon as normal production activities recover.
