Polymers
Leveraging our track record and innovation in our core business that is polymers, we are bringing our original high value-added line of products to the global market.

The polymers business is largely divided into two areas: films and plastics.
As a result of realizing numerous world firsts and expanding the possibilities of materials, it has become the core business upon which Unitika rests today.
While giving priority to developing environmentally friendly materials, we pursue the kind of performance and quality only Unitika can deliver as we strive to bring more lines of high value-added products to the global market.

Plastics

Unitika is currently promoting a global niche strategy in the field of plastics. It currently has its sights set on the global market for engineering plastics and is focusing on the Asian market for liquid, non-molded materials. Based on our highly unique “U-Polymer”, Unitika is seeking further collaboration with its partner companies to reinforce its development, production and sales framework in the area of engineering plastics as it aims to expand from applications in the rapidly changing automotive industry into energy and aerospace applications. A key priority for us will be to keep our finger on the pulse of the market and deliver necessary products that will form the “standard”.
