Research and Development

Widening Business area through unique R&D activities

Toray Fine Chemicals aims at being a corporation that excels in research and development as well as in bringing out new products that meet the demands and requirements of the age now dawning.
In our DMSO Business, the Company supplies high quality products for the electronic materials market. Also, it is promoting, in joint development with customers, new application for reaction solvents.
The Specialty Chemical Business, in addition to contact-based production, is expanding into specialty chemicals including Grignard reaction products, thiochemical products, and information technology related materials.
The Polysulfid Polymers and Specialty Polymers Business aim to enter new markets by using polymerization technologies for Polysulfid Polymer and Specialty Polymers as well as analyzing and evaluation technologies.
The High Performance Materials Business produces proprietary materials such as electret nonwoven fabrics of ultra fine fibers, cellulose sponges and fluorocarbon fibers, and also develops processed products.
