PLA resin formulation

From aerospace to food packaging, plastics have an impact in our daily lives.

Plastic is the main component in many tools and products we use throughout our life.
As good as it is, it also has some weak points, such as:
- Easily builds up a static charge
- Physical properties begin to decline even after only a few days.
We offer solutions to help you overcome the problems and weaknesses of plastic.

weak points

Anti-static agent
Anti-fogging agent
Anti-fogging agent
UV abosorbant

Others:Releasing agentAdhesive binder(primary coating)・hydrophilic agent・Anti dew drops coating for greenhouse・and Flame retardant


Landscape Development

With a lot of lab-size machinery and analysis equipment, we can support a variety of our customer's needs, from the fundamental development stage through commercial application.

Because of our extensive knowledge and capability, we can assist in the development of test standards and develop new, innovative technologies in partnership with our customers.

We are confident that we can properly support our customers with regular communication, value-added solutions development and our technological driven philosophy.
