Petitions Filed Requesting the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties on Imports of Certain Epoxy Resins from China, India, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand

Case Summary

On April 3, 2024, the U.S. Epoxy Resin Producers Ad Hoc Coalition filed a petition for the imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on the imports of certain Epoxy Resins from China, India, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. The petition alleges dumping margins of 264.87% to 351.97% (China), 11.43% to 17.50% (India), 30.01% to 43.09% for Kukdo and 48.13% to 69.42% for Kumho (South Korea), 87.19% to 136.02% (Taiwan), and 163.94% to 205.63% (Thailand). The petition identifies certain foreign producers/exporters and U.S. importers of the investigated product.

The merchandise covered by these investigations is epoxy resins, also known as epoxide resins or polyepoxides, which are polymers or prepolymers containing epoxy groups. Epoxy resins range in physical form from low viscosity liquids to solids and are used in a wide range of applications such as coatings, paints, adhesives, composite materials, wind blade systems, insulating materials, civil engineering materials, and electronics. All epoxy resins are covered by the scope of these petitions irrespective of physical form, viscosity, grade, purity, molecular weight, or molecular structure and regardless of packaging. The petition provides additional detailed scope description and specific product exclusions.

The projected date of International Trade Commission’s Preliminary Conference is April 24, 2024. The earliest theoretical date for retroactive suspension of liquidation for AD is June 12, 2024; CVD is April 23, 2024.
