Super Absorbent Polymers
In our quest to help provide healthy and comfortable living for people the world over, we are constantly engaged in developing new products through improving our proprietary processes and enhancing the performance of absorbent polymers through integration of technologies from different fields. We are also involved in R&D and technical services on a global scale through efforts such as locating user needs at an early stage and offering solutions in a timely manner through close cooperation with our international sites.
Making the most of our core technologies of polymerization, fine synthesis, and emulsification, together with state-of-the-art technologies from universities and other external organizations, our enthusiastic researchers are working on R&D of water-soluble polymers, fine particles, and latex/emulsions that serve as the foundations for functions/capabilities of consumer goods in the cosmetic and toiletry categories and of industrial products in the electronic materials and environment/energy categories.
Gases & Engineering
In the three business domains of "electronics," "life science," and "environment and energy conservation," we develop gas-related products by utilizing technologies for separating/synthesizing/mixing gases, achieving high purity, conducting microanalysis, and designing gas generation/collection systems. We are also expanding the range of potential applications for gas-based functional materials and developing an even broader range of gas-related equipment.
