Engineering Plastics

These diverse engineering plastics are used for reducing vehicle weight; increasing fuel efficiency; and increasing the performance of computers, mobile phones, and other electronic devices.
They contribute to society’s development and an improved quality of life.
  • Polyacetal (POM)
    DURACON®
    DURACON plays an active role in applications centered on mechanical components such as gears, screws, and bearings.
    Examples of its use can be found in AV equipment, OA equipment, household appliances, automobile parts and household equipment.
  • Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT)
    DURANEX®
    PBT possesses superior dimensional stability and electrical properties. It’s adopted in a wide variety of familiar products used in everyday life. Part of its using examples are electrical components (connectors, micros witches, and condenser cases, etc.), OA equipment (keyboards, telephones, auto parts (including in-car electronic products and outer door handles), medical devices, construction materials, and precision equipment.
  • Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)
    DURAFIDE®
    DURAFIDE possesses superior electrical properties with heat-resistant, and its mechanical strength is exceedingly high. Its  applications are not limited to electronic components, DURAFIDE's superior properties are being exploited in automotive parts and mechanical parts for OA and AV equipment. Also its more growth is expected on auto electrical components and housing applications.
  • Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP)
    LAPEROS
    LAPEROS is a next-generation advanced engineering plastics that approaches steel. Its application including AV and OA equipment components, IT and audio equipment, and SMT components, development is proceeding rapidly.
