①Biodegradable, water-soluble resin
Nichigo G-Polymer™ is a new vinyl alcohol resin that is unparalleled throughout the world (butandiol vinyl alcohol co-polymer resin [BVOH]). The resin can be used to freely control crystallinity and the cohesive power of the non-crystalline part. It is being increasingly used in various applications as an environmentally friendly water soluble resin that achieves high gas barrier performance, formability, and biodegradability in addition to outstanding transparency and solvent resistance.
②Polyvinyl alcohol compatible with pharmaceutical additive
The GOHSENOL™ EG-P series is a purified polyvinyl alcohol. It can be used for binders, coating agents, thickeners (for ophthalmic/nasal solutions), gel patches, emulsifiers, OD film substrates, etc. We have continued to develop various applications.
③High performance adhesive
COPONYL™ and Nichigo-POLYESTER™ are acrylic and polyester based adhesives. These are being used in applications such as for optics, semiconductors, and electronic materials. Furthermore, we are developing a market for our proprietary high-performance adhesives through integration with SHIKOH™, a UV curing resin.
