Chemicals Business

This division deals in products produced by processing basic raw materials from monomers to polymers and various additives, such as acrylic and urethane derived from naphtha and epoxy derivatives. Their products range widely and support people’s life from industrial applications to life-related materials from upstream of petrochemicals.
Building on the information and networks we have cultivated over our long history, we are linking the entire supply chain, from raw materials to products, and building a sales structure that spans a wide range of fields in Japan and overseas. By connecting companies with companies, technologies and technologies, and humans, we have also established a support system for research that is at the forefront of the times.
