Asahi Kasei Co., Ltd.

We respond to all needs related to polystyrene foam.

We have pursued the possibilities of polystyrene foam for 40 years, which includes the development of a unique “surface coating formation” technology for melting surfaces and forming hard, smooth resin layers. We succeeded in reducing the number of surface sheets that were previously necessary and developed recyclable, earth-friendly products with a single material. We also achieved integral molding of resin/metal with foam polystyrene, contributing to the reduction of man-hours for building parts into units. Polystyrene foam resin products are used in many of the parts related to home electronics appliances, functional heat insulating parts, physical distribution materials, packing materials, agricultural materials, civil engineering construction materials, casting materials, and more.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
Polystyrene foam products are indispensable for heat insulation, civil engineering construction, gardening and agriculture, packaging and cold boxes. We have put all our energy into becoming a “company trusted and chosen by customers” and are able to respond to all customer needs for polystyrene foam products, from design and prototype manufacturing to molding, cutting processing, and assembly.

[Business description]
Our polystyrene foam products play an active role in various scenes of daily life and thus we will continue pursuing the possibilities of polystyrene foam. We also develop, manufacture, and sell resin products, and manufacture parts for home electronics appliances (air conditioners, showcases, etc.), car air-conditioner parts, heat insulating materials, product carrying boxes, gift cases, agricultural materials, civil engineering construction materials, castings (FMC), and more. We respond to customer needs at all stages, from product planning and design to manufacturing.

Foam resin manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
We are committed to developing and manufacturing earth-friendly products, which is essential for environmental conservation. Our polystyrene foam products are made from materials with a recycling rate of over 85%, and thus are excellent in resource saving and reduced environmental load. We have also developed and patented a unique technology for “surface coating formation” that reduces the number of surface sheets required. Our customers are able to reduce their costs because our polyethylene foam products have the same quality but are less expensive. Our foam polyethylene products, which are formed from a single material, are easy to recycle and are considered to be “better earth-friendly products” than ever before. We are highly regarded for our technological competence and some customers specifically ask Asahikasei for products that are difficult to handle.

[Representative's message]
We are a polystyrene foam manufacturer capable of handling everything from design and prototype manufacturing to molding and assembly. Insert molded articles and surface coated molded articles produced through our specialized technology offer new uses for polystyrene foam. We deliver proposals for general chemical products, are quick to respond, and welcome all inquiries.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
As leaders in our field, we were the first in the industry to establish the technology for integral molding of foam polystyrene with resin/metal. We have been actively committed to the development of functional parts molding technology and successfully established the technology for molding products as thin as 2 to 3 mm, hinge molding, and surface coating formation for melting surfaces and forming resin layers. We will continue making every effort to improve our technology, and to develop a total support system from planning to design to mass production. We also intend to expand our sales not only at home but also abroad.

[Market share/Ranking]
Detailed data on our market share is not available; however, we consider that we have a certain market share in our field.
