DURABIO™ is a bio-based polycarbonate resin derived mainly from plant-based isosorbide. Compared with conventional polycarbonate resin (hereafter abbreviated PC resin) made from bisphenol A (hereafter abbreviated BPA), DURABIO™ features high transparency, excellent optical properties, and outstanding scratch resistance. Its puncture impact behaviour are comparable to those for PC resin.
DURABIO™ is a plant-derived polymer but is not biodegradable. It has excellent durability, making possible its deployment in a wide variety of applications such as for optical ・energy related components, a substitute for high-performance glass components, as well as for electronic equipment ・ automotive housings ・ interior and exterior decor.
NOVADURAN™ PBT resin has excellent electrical insulation performance, good chemical resistance, moldability.
Taking advantage of these characteristics, it has been widely used as a material for automotive ,E&E,
and high-performance film applications.
XANTAR™ PC has excellent transparency, impact resistance, flame reistance, heat resistance, electrical properties. Taking advantage of these characteristics, it has been widely used as a material for automotive ,E&E,
and high-performance extrusion applications.
BPDA (3,3',4,4'-Biphenyltetracarboxylic dianhydride) is a raw material for the polyimide resin component of one of the super-engineering plastics. It is used for many important information and electronic technology products such as mobile phones and copying machines.
