"The explosion at the Evonik plant killed two employees and not only impacted production of the key resin but also destroyed the production equipment for CDT, one of the key chemicals for producing the PA-12 resin. With Evonik one of the most essential suppliers of CDT used by other PA-12 manufacturers it is unclear if alternative sources can be found – and, if so, how quickly they could ramp up production to cover for the losses."
I wonder if this resin is used in the production of smart parts and or panels?
Radio said this morning this was the only plant able to supply the resin. This particular resin was related to brake fluid resistant parts, fluid reservoirs? Idk, that's what I heard. Stupid planning if all your resin eggs are in one basket.
