BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s commerce ministry said on Monday it has started an anti-dumping probe into imports from the United States of polyphenylene ether, a polymer prized for its heat resistance and used in the automotive and electronics industries.

The launch of the probe followed a call for an investigation made by Nantong Xingchen Synthetic Materials Co made on June 23 on behalf of the domestic polyphenylene ether industry, the Ministry of Commerce said in a statement on its website.
