Kuraray supplies many products used in a wide variety of electrical and electronics applications.

An LCD screen.

PVOH film for LCD displays

All LCD displays have polarization filters. Kuraray has many years of expertise in this field. Back in 2005 we developed a revolutionary PVOH film for optical applications. Thanks to KURARAY POVAL™ PVOH film, we are now the world’s biggest supplier of polyvinyl alcohol for this sector. KURARAY POVAL™ is the basis for polarization films used in all common LCD displays, for example, for flat-screen TVs, computers, smartphones and other optical applications.


Batteries of various sizes.


Battery separators

Almost all battery separators and accumulators need a separator – a material that keeps negative and positive electrodes apart both physically and electrically yet is permeable to ions. If you are looking for reliable battery separators, our PA9T polyamide fibers are just what you need. They are oil-resistant, heat-resistant, and resistant to acids and alkalis. 


A transformer.

Degreasing of metal parts

Kuraray’s MMB (3-methoxy-3-methyl-1-butanol) is used to degrease metal parts to remove traces of lubricants and coolants. That is important for further processing of electrical components such as switches and transformers.
