Business Fields and Main Products

Polyurethane foam

Flexible polyurethane foam for automotive seatsKuraraFoam
This uniform-celled porous foam is light and soft and boasts cushioning, shock-absorbing, acoustic-absorbing, and heat-insulating properties. It makes life easier through use in a variety of everyday applications, including mattresses, pressure-relieving pillows, automobile seats, sponges, and food packaging materials.See more(Japanese only)
Pressure-relieving pillowsSleep Merge Pillow
This pillow provides a good night’s sleep through its combination of newly developed pressure-relieving Legend Foam material and a multi-wave cut design conducive to a natural head-resting position.See more(Japanese only)

Housing construction materials

Housing insulationKuranzero
This high-performance rigid urethane foam insulation uses HFO, a new blowing agent that is CFC-free and highly insulating. Compared to conventional fiber insulation, it offers superior adhesion, dimensional stability, airtightness, and insulating performance, and provides a comfortable living environment.
Laminated wood for housingKurattice Eco
Kurattice Eco is laminated wood coated with resin with a core of aluminum or other metal. Combining the attractiveness of wood with the strength of metal, it enjoys wide application for construction and industrial uses. See more

Semiconductor-related products

Low-dielectric film for high-frequency applicationsOidys
This insulation film for electronic components is a thermoplastic resin formed through high-temperature extrusion molding. Boasting outstanding heat resistance and low dielectric constant, this film is ideal for use in items such as flexible flat cables and flexible printed circuit boards.See more(Japanese only)
Resin productsResin products
We use a wealth of processing technologies for resin to provide customers with everything from components for semiconductor and LCD production to pumps, valves, and other parts for machinery.
