China launches anti-dumping probe into certain rubber imports.
China’s Commerce Ministry said that it has launched anti-dumping investigations into hydrogenated butyl rubber from the US, the European Union and Singapore, according to a Reuters news report.
Producers from the three regions have been selling rubber at a discount to fair market prices, hurting margins and sales in China’s domestic industry, the Commerce Ministry said. The ministry’s investigation began August 30 and will be ongoing for a year. The probe is looking at products imported between April 2016 and March 2017. The rubber is mainly used to produce heat resistant materials, news sources said.
