DURACON® POM

Representative Player of
Engineering Plastics, Substituting
for Metal in a Wide Range of Applications

With its properties of self-lubrication, grease resistance, and well-balanced mechanical functions, it has a wide range of applications including domestic items such as fasteners and toothbrush handles as well as automobile safety-related parts (such as door lock, door latch, and seatbelt lock mechanisms) and automobile fuel system parts. We have the No.1 global share, and Polyplastics group POM products make up 20% of the total.

PBT DURANEX®

The Well-Balanced "Little Brother" with Electrical Properties

Its unique combination of heat resistance and electrical properties makes PBT a particularly adaptable material, capable of adopting diverse characteristics to suit customer needs thanks to its excellent compatibility with many different types of reinforcement agents and additives. It lends itself to applications across a variety of fields, from automobile wire harness connectors and electrical parts in the automobile field to domestic items such as makeup brushes and laminated paper food containers.

Application

Wire harness connectors

Contributing to the shift to smart cars!

Wire harnesses run through a car just like veins and nerves in the human body. At both ends of each wire, there is a connector that ensures that the connection is established and that electricity/signals are transmitted stably. With excellent electrical properties, heat resistance, and mechanical properties, these connectors ensure long-term reliability even in the unforgiving environment of an engine room.

DURAFIDE® PPS

A Promising Player of Super-Engineering Plastic with Excellent Heat and Chemical Resistance

Polyplastics was the first in Japan to compound and release a linear resin PPS product, which utilizes linear PPS polymer (manufactured and provided by Kureha Corporation). With its high-performing mechanical strength and heat, chemical, and flame resistance, the material has improved elongation and impact resistance to realize higher toughness than in previous PPS. It is used in a wide range of applications, such as electrical components for hybrid and electric cars, smartphones, and water mixing valves for bathrooms and sinks.

LAPEROS® LCP

A Market-Leading Super-Engineering Plastic, Supporting Cutting-Edge IT Devices

LCP is a typical super engineering plastic, which boasts high fluidity while being moldable even when formed into extremely thin shapes- specifications that far exceed those of ordinary engineering plastics. LCP is highly resistant to heat and has incomparable mechanical strength and a metal-like low expansion rate that causes the strength to increase as the thickness of the material decreases. It is often used in ultra-compact, high-precision connectors for tablets, smartphones, and other leading-edge IT devices that are trending toward miniaturization. We have the No.1 global share, and Polyplastics group LCP products make up 37% of the total.
