Value Created from the Combination of Contrasting Characteristics“Functional Composite Material“

Functional Composite Material

Functional Composite Materials are made by combining a resin and filler to produce unique characteristics that cannot be realized by either single material by itself.
The material can be formed into shapes by injection molding, extrusion, etc., high functionality, miniaturization, and reduced part weight are the key benefits.

Manufacturing Process

Selection of materials that will meet the required functions.
Processing of raw materials into the optimum shape.
Processing of pulverized materials further into a condition suitable for mixing.
Mixing of the processed materials with the resin.
Melted resin is kneaded with the mixture of materials.
Creation of the desired functional composite material.
