Founded in 1926, Kuraray Co., Ltd. is a world leader in specialty chemicals, polymers, fibers and textiles. Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, Kuraray has over 7,000 employees worldwide. The company started business for the purpose of commercializing synthetic rayon, which was cutting edge technology at the time. In 1950, as Japan’s first domestic producer of synthetic fiber based on original Japanese technologies, Kuraray became a world leader in the commercialization of PVA (poval) fiber under the KURALON brand, ushering in Japan’s pioneering era in the chemical synthetic fiber industry.
Kuraray’s pioneering business in this field includes the functional resin Poval, Poval film used as a base film for the polarized film needed in LCD,and PVB resins, EVAL that is able to block almost all gas including oxygen, and methacrylic resin with excellent transparency and durability.
- Chemicals, elastomers and rubber
Kuraray’s products in this area include SEPTON, a thermoplastic elastomer with elasticity similar to rubber in a broad range of temperatures, vibration suppression HYBRAR and chemical products (pharmaceuticals, agrochemical intermediates, industrial cleaners, etc.) using isoprene as a starting material.
- Fabric, manmade leather, nonwoven fabric, hook and loop fasteners
Kuraray was founded to industrialize rayon, a synthetic silk, and succeeded in commercializing vinylon, the first synthetic fiber using domestic technology, in addition to commercializing the pioneering synthetic leather CLARINO. The company has also delivered SOPHISTA, a functional polyester with high added value that is produced using Kuraray’s proprietary polymers. Furthermore, Kuraray also manufactures KURAFLEX, a nonwoven fabric with a wide range of variations, and the hook and loop fastener MAGIC TAPE, a product developed based on the wonders of nature.
