Plastics production

The global market and the growing trend to just-in-time production are becoming more and more challenging for product development. In the plastics industry, that means rising demand for more individual products, produced in increasingly small quantities, with shorter lead times. Plastic compounds tailored precisely to the requirements of a particular product are therefore becoming more important. As a leading supplier of specialty polymers, Kuraray is a competent partner for the plastics industry.
