Plastics and Films Businesses

We handle
Synthetic resins widely used in household products, electrical appliances, automobiles, building materials, etc., such as methacrylic and polycarbonate, and Film processing that brilliantly colors printing, lamination and products. We also handle raw materials, processing, and commercialization of such products. A field that is rich in varieties and that has a wide range of applications requires deep and broad expertise. We play a role in linking resin and material manufacturers, processing manufacturers and user using our knowledge and experience. It is also true that information networks centered around us have created a good cycle for further information sharing.

Growth Strategy

Future Development

In response to increasing social needs for environmentally friendly products, such as plastic reduction, plastic removal, and recycling, we are particularly focusing on environmentally friendly products.
As a chemical specialty trade company, we have long been dealing with “pulp” and will use our deep knowledge and network on environmentally-friendly materials derived from pulp (KC Flock, paper powder, wood powder, etc.) to contribute to product development and solution of problems in various business fields.

Efforts for Environmental Products

  1. Sale of environmentally friendly raw materials (pulp, cellulose powder, CMC, paper powder, wood powder, etc.)
  2. Fusion of environmentally friendly raw materials with resin materials (e.g., herbal residues + PE raw materials = environmentally friendly garbage bag with antibacterial function)
  3. Propose and sell materials to resin manufacturers
  4. Sales of environmentally conscious ingredients and compounded materials
  5. Product sales on consignment ; compound (Alloy) technology proposal, etc.
