1.Main Exhibit Content

・KURARAY POVAL™ and ELVANOL™ Polyvinyl Alcohol Resins

Kuraray was the first in the world to commercialize Polyvinyl Alcohol resin. KURARAY POVAL™ and ELVANOL™ have such characteristics as water solubility, film formability, adhesiveness, emulsifiability, oil resistance, and chemical resistance, and they can be used in a wide variety of applications, including as paper additives, adhesives, and compound stabilizers for polyvinyl chloride resins.

• EVAL™ EVOH Resin and Film

This ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH) has a gas barrier function superior to that of all other plastics. In addition to being used for packaging pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, agricultural products, industrial products, and, especially, food, EVOH is used for automotive fuel tanks, floor heating pipes, and vacuum insultation panels for refrigerators.

• SEPTON™ and HYBRAR™ Hydrogenated Styrene Thermoplastic Elastomers

The hydrogenated styrene thermoplastic elastomer SEPTON™ and HYBRAR™ were developed using Kuraray’s accumulated proprietary technologies. They are used as rubber substitutes and plastic modifiers.

• GENESTAR™ Heat-Resistant Polyamide Resin

GENESTAR™ is one of Kuraray’s proprietary heat-resistant polyamide resins. It has excellent features, such as low water absorption, high heat resistance, high chemical resistance, superior sliding properties, and dimensional precision. It is increasingly used in electrical, electronic, and automotive components.

• Various Hoses

Our lineup of hoses includes five types optimal for agricultural use. Each product is easy to handle with smooth internal and external surfaces, excellent high pressure resistance, and high flexibility. You can choose the hose that is optimal for your applications.

• Oil Compounding Technology

This pellet-shaped additive was created using oil compounding technology to incorporate high ratios of up to 30% of various functional oils in mainly thermoplastic resins, such as polyolefins. This can be used in textiles, films, sheet, various forms and more.

The company will showcase EXCEVAL™, the SEPTON™ BIO-series, Liquid Farnesene Rubber (L-FR), KURARITY™, ISOBAM™, and more.
