Daicel is Japan's only manufacturer of acetic acid. We supply acetic acid, acetic acid derivative chemicals, and cellulose acetate which is made from acetic acid and the natural material cellulose, as well as acetate tow obtained by spinning cellulose acetate. Cellulose acetate in particular is expected to meet increasing needs for environmentally-friendly plastic materials, as a biomass material and marine biodegradable material. In addition, alicyclic epoxy is attracting attention as a highly advanced material for electrical material applications that require reliable quality and durability. We support manufacturing in a wide range of industries on the strength of our diverse product lineup and unique manufacturing methods based on organic synthesis technologies cultivated over many years of experience.

Engineering Plastics

"Engineering plastics" is a general term for a group of high-performance plastics that exhibit greater strength and heat resistance (generally 100°C and higher) than conventional general-purpose plastics. They are expected to replace metal parts by enabling products to be lighter and smaller. In addition to offering processing technologies and technical services, Daicel Group provides plastics in resin form that meet specific customer needs.
