At the Epoxy Unit, we perform manufacturing, sales and R & D in a coherent system based on the study for yearsand accumulated technologies of epoxy resin, and we will correspond to various needs promptly and flexibly. Specifically, they are epoxy resins and vice-materials such as curing agents, which are widely used in paint and coating materials, electrical insulation materials such as printed circuit boards, composite materials such as CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastics), construction materials such as flooring and liners, and adhesives.
Regarding the jER™ (formerly Epikote™ *) epoxy resin, Mitsubishi Chemical is prepared to support our customers' needs quickly and flexibly. Our production is extremely fast because we have accumulated many years of research with epoxy products. Our manufacturing, sales, research, and development are tightly integrated to enable rapid response to the challenges our customers face.

jERCURE™ curing agents for epoxy resins are an abundant set of curing agents that cover the full range from low to high curing temperature with functional groups ranging from amine, mercaptan, and phenol to Lewis acid complex compounds. A curing agent can be chosen from this set to fit the application. There are water-based curing agents for water-based epoxy resins, too.
