image Sumitomo Chemical's Plastics Technical Center has long been a pioneer in the basic research of polymer solids and rheology and in developing new applications for resin processing technologies. The Center's ground-breaking research has led to its obtaining a number of licenses for original processes and technologies.
Staff at the Center compile the latest information related to new materials, processing techniques, and product design technologies. By applying advanced processing technologies to new materials, the Center develops new materials and products with the advanced functions needed in today's high-level applications.

With full-scale assistance from Sumitomo Chemical's Plastics Technical Center, Sumika Plastech undertakes a wide range of research and development activities focused on creating "new materials that are kind to the environment." image
