Design and development support by CAE technology
We will introduce the "CAE Techniques" and "examples of their use" possessed by Asahi Kasei.
Asahi Kasei supports customers' resin product development by making full use of our accumulated CAE technologies.
Battery Projects from Asahi Kasei Europe
Here are some of Asahi Kasei's efforts to create concepts and understand products, targeting battery packs for motorized vehicles.
Asahi Kasei to start providing carbon footprint data for each product of performance resins
Asahi Kasei started the production and sales of TENAC™ homopolymers in 1972, followed by copolymers in 1985, and the world-first polyacetal block copolymers TENAC™ LA series in 1987.
The company started production and sales of copolymers in Zhangjiagang, China since 2004 in addition to the plant in Japan.
In the polyacetal business field, Asahi Kasei is the world's only manufacturer of both homopolymers (TENAC™) and copolymers (TENAC™ -C), as well as for the block copolymers "TENAC™ LA series" with its own unique technologies.
Okayama, Japan 44,000 Mt/year
(20,000 Mt/year homopolymer, 24,000 Mt/year copolymer).
Zhangjiagang, China 20,000 Mt/year copolymer.
The Asahi Kasei LEONA™ grades are molding compounds based on PA66, PA612 and semi-aromatic polyamides such as PA66/6I. The range is available in unfilled grades as well as reinforced with glass fibers and special composites. LEONA™ is noted for its high strength, heat, oil, and abrasion resistance as well as for its processability.
Asahi kasei has long experience on the polyamide market since 1972, and is fully able to produce PA66 completely from monomer to compound. Our compounding technologies allow for global quality with local production.
modified-Polyphenylene Ether(m-PPE) resin
Asahi Kasei started the production and sales of XYRON™ in March 1979. XYRON™ consists of various portfolio that enables the selection of various PPE alloy combinations with other resins such as polystyrene (PS), polyamide (PA), polypropylene (PP), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) .
