WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Commerce issued orders to collect antidumping duties on emulsion styrene-butadiene rubber from Mexico, Brazil, Poland and South Korea.
The order appeared in the Sept. 12 Federal Register. It is the last step after the International Trade Commission's Aug. 2 affirmative vote finding material injury to the U.S. ESBR industry and Commerce's July 11 ruling that set final antidumping margins against the ESBR importers.
On July 17, Industrias Negromex S.A. de C.V. sent comments to the agency, saying it had made ministerial errors in calculating Negromex's antidumping margin, according to the Federal Register notice.
Commerce investigated Negromex's allegations, but saw no reason to change Negromex's margin, the agency said.
The final antidumping duties are as follows:
- Brazil: Arlanxeo Brasil S.A., 19.61 percent; all others, 19.61 percent;
- South Korea LG Chem Ltd., 9.66 percent; Daewoo International Corp., 44.3 percent; Kumho Petrochemical Co. Ltd., 44.3 percent; all others, 9.66 percent;
- Mexico: Industrias Negromex S.A. de C.V.—Planta Altamira, 19.52 percent; all others, 19.52 percent;
- Poland: Synthos Dwory, 25.43 percent; all others, 25.43 percent.
Customs and Border Protection now will require cash deposits in the above amounts from the listed importers, Commerce said.
