Development of Industry’s First Flexible Zirconia offering High Strength, Superior Toughness and Hydrothermal Resistance

June 11, 2014 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of Industry’s First Flexible Zirconia offering High Strength, Superior Toughness and Hydrothermal Resistance 

Kurarary ZirconiaKuraray Noritake Dental has announced the development of a highly durable zirconia that features both high strength and superior toughness. Although the currently used zirconia offers great strength, it possesses the fragility which is inherent to ceramic. The material is also known to gradually weaken over time as the crystal structure changes from a tetragonal phase to a monoclinic one when exposed to hydrothermal condition. Read more

Development of Water Soluble Polymers to be used in eco-friendly Water-based Adhesive and Paints

October 27, 2011 · Filed Under Green Tech, Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of Water Soluble Polymers to be used in eco-friendly Water-based Adhesive and Paints 

TUSVIS MY Series at 20 degrees Celsius

Kuraray has recently developed two new water-soluble polymers namely the &”My Series” and &”SN Series” under the TUSVIS brand. Solution using new MY series shows higher viscosity with rise in temperature, while solution using the new SN Series provides a high viscosity regardless of what the temperature is. The TUSVIS has been developed through use of special polymer synthesis technology; know how which has been acquired through company’s polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) resin business. TUSVIS improves boasts water solubility, high viscosity, high hydrophobic properties and high chemical resistance, making it ideal for use as a thickening agent for eco-friendly, water-based adhesives and paints.

New Concept in Tatami Matting

December 19, 2010 · Filed Under Coffee Break · 1 Comment 





Tatami an integral part of Japanese traditional culture has given its place to carpets and other type of flooring materials in recent years due to changes in the living environment. The tradition form of tatami is facing difficulty to conform to the structural requirements of either Japanese or Western style rooms where there is growing demand for thinner or more functional tatami matting. Due to this fact Kuraray and Dow Kakoh have jointly developed SHINZO Thin Tatami Mats, realizing feel and heat insulation of straw tatami. In this development, Dow has worked with KURARAYKURAFLEX. DOW Kakoh has used the high-density “STYROFOAM” with thin tatami, which is being used beneath the bullet train tracks and underneath airport runways. In addition to this an interlining that maintains the durability and workability needed in thin tatami matting was developed through compounding with high-strength plastic boards which is used in advanced composite materials.

Development of Voltage Generating Film Polymer Sensor by Kuraray

November 25, 2010 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of Voltage Generating Film Polymer Sensor by Kuraray 

Kuraray has announced a development of special film-type flexible polymer senor material capable of generating voltage when it is bent. The new polymer sensor is capable of maintaining constant voltage during the time that is being bent, while depending on the amount of bending the polymer film the amount of generated voltage can decrease or increase. The film polymer sensor can be applied to various applications and required voltage, through changing the film’s size. The sensor does not require power during the operation. Read more

Development of EVAL AP Series, an OXYGEN-Absorbing Functional Resin by KURARAY

October 4, 2010 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of EVAL AP Series, an OXYGEN-Absorbing Functional Resin by KURARAY 

Safety of food supply chain is ever one’s concern, so as it’s prolong containment in a metallic can or plastic containers. Pretty much all of us follow the strict rule of consuming the contained food before its expiry date, making the long-term prevention of container content oxidation every food suppliers concern, raising needs for a container product that is thinner than regular resin bottles and even better at blocking oxygen than conventional EVAL which was developed back in 1972 by Kurary, used for mayonnaise, ketchup and other food packaging. EVAL is also used in other areas such automobile gasoline tanks contributing to vehicle weight reduction while providing the ability to prevent leaks. Currently Kararay has 65% world market share of EVAL. But commercially available EVAL food protection by blocking oxygen is good only for period of four months, known as “best-before” period in the food packaging industry. But, Kuraray has extended this to 7 month by introduction of EVAL AP Series by raising the gas impermeability level. Read more

Release of New Series of Thermoplastic Elastomer offering High Performance and Functionality by KURARAY

July 13, 2010 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off on Release of New Series of Thermoplastic Elastomer offering High Performance and Functionality by KURARAY 

Kuraray made yet another addition to its line-up of high performance and high functionality SEPTON brand hydrogenated styrenic thermoplastic elastomers, by introduction of new SEPTON J Series. The SEPTON product offer rubber like elasticity, where it can be easily molded like all types of plastic. It is widely used as soft molding material instead of vulcanized rubber and soft polyvinyl chloride. The SEPTON J Series has been developed based on company’s know how in polymer design and synthesizing technology, where it offers a low melt viscosity and excellent processability. Read more

Development of Industry’s lightest Tatami Mat

November 8, 2009 · Filed Under Coffee Break · Comments Off on Development of Industry’s lightest Tatami Mat 


Tatami as being part of traditional Japanese culture is going through a though time partly due to shift to more western style of flooring such as rugs, carpets or even wood flooring ,and party due to ongoing difficulties with supply of rice straw, the main ingredient in making tatami. The supply issue has been created due to insufficient straw materials, reduced request because of aging of tatami artisans and need for price reduction with consistent quality. As a result of this, there has been a shift toward tatami mat construction materials that do not use any rice straw. One such company that makes alternative material for tatami construction is Dow Kakoh, where the company uses “STYROFOAM” extruded polystyrene foam boards to match the feel of a straw tatami mats resulting in a lighter tatami mat.

Development of Thermal Barrier and Odor Dissipating Sheets by Kuraray

October 22, 2009 · Filed Under Clean Tech · Comments Off on Development of Thermal Barrier and Odor Dissipating Sheets by Kuraray 

When you hear of thermal barrier and odor dissipating sheets the last think comes to mind are cows, horses, or pigs. Well, this is exactly Kuraray’s target market for developing its latest odor dissipating and thermal barrier sheets which specifically developed for barns housing cows, horses, pigs and chickens. Well, I thought this is all about framing and joy of it but apparently company’s thought in developing this solution is contrary to that. Apparently smell of ammonia in such places is considered sever enough to make the farming working environment difficult, dirty and dangerous. But let’s stick to the actual technology for now. The newly developed sheet has a capability of repeatedly absorbing and breaking down ammonia molecules. The newly developed sheet in addition to its odor dissipating quality is an excellent thermal barrier characteristic capable of reflecting extreme radian heat during the summer when placed on roof of such structures as barns.
