SAFTOMER™ is an ionic acrylic coating material used for surface coating as an antistatic agent. It is made of a polymer that yields a lasting antistatic property.
APTOLOK™, an adhesion promoter as a primer for coating polyolefins such as polypropylene (PP), was developed using our proprietary technology. Particularly, it has outstanding adhesion in low-temperature baking, and excellent solvent resistance. This environmentally-friendly product is chlorine-free, completely water-based, and contains very minimal volatile organic compounds (VOC's).
SURFLEN™ is a modified polyolefin elastomer with improved weather resistant adhesion and low temperature flexibility/shock resistance. It was developed uniquely in our company as a primer for coating non-polar olefin resin surfaces such as polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE). SURFLEN™ binds well not only to polyolefin but also to various plastics and metal materials, and can be used in a wide range of applications including paints, print and adhesive primers for these materials.
MITEC™NY series are non-yellowing polyisocyanate curative agents. MITEC™NY series offer products with a wide range of flexibility, and the coating film properties allow them to be used as curing agents in adhesives, inks, or paints. In particular, they can be used in the fields required weather resistance, such as automotive and construction exterior paintings.
YUKAFORMER™ is a carboxybetaine hair spray resin. Resilient and natural hair styling without flaking is possible.
DIAFORMER™ is an amine oxide hair fixative polymer. It enables resilient and natural hair-styling without flaking.
POLYTAIL™ is a polyhydroxy polyolefin oligomer developed using Mitsubishi Chemical's proprietary catalyst technology. It has a polyolefin skeleton and a terminal hydroxyl (-OH) group. By adding to polyolefin elastomers such as EPDM, etc., POLYTAIL™ creates adhesive, flexibility, lubrication, and dispersive properties. CAS: No. 68954-10-9 (T) Japan Chemical Mfg. Reg.: No.6-749 Fire Services Law: Specified combustibles
DIACARNA™ is a synthetic wax copolymer of α-olefin and maleic anhydride. It serves a wide variety of applications including use as resin molding lubricants, mold release agents, compatibility agents, binders for thermal-printing inks, etc. Japan Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Law: Not applicable Japan Fire Services Law: Specified combustibles (flammable solids)
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. CAS: No.2420－87－3（T） EINECS: No.219－342－9 Japan Chemical Mfg. Reg.: No.4-833 Japan Poisonous and Deleterious Substances Control Law: Not applicable Fire Services Law: Not applicable
MKC™ Silicate is an oligomer formed by the partial hydrolysis of tetramethoxysilane. As an additive in paints, it produces a hydrophilic surface that is highly stain-resistant with the self-cleaning effect.
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. (*Epikote™ is a trademark of Momentive Specialty Chemicals)
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.
YED is reactive diluents for an epoxy resin that provides low viscosity without compromising the resin's special characteristics.
This silicone resin is used as a packaging material and encapsulant for various LED's (white LED, ultraviolet LED, violet LED, blue LED.) High-efficiency lighting and energy-saving TV's use an LED semiconductor chip as a white light source. Silicone resin is mixed with the phosphors and is used to encapsulate this white LED. This silicone resin has been newly developed to have excellent light-stability (resistance to degradation from light exposure) and heat-stability.
