Industrial Materials

We contribute to industry through a vast array of materials of all kinds. We provide total solutions, from fibers to resins.

We provide highly functional materials developed by the Unitika Group to all manner of industry sectors.
We support industry in wide-ranging forms, for nylon, polyester and other fiber and synthetic materials, as well as original fabrics to each kind of processed product and sewn product even for nonwoven fabrics capable of deployment in a variety of applications.


Industrial Materials

Deploying a Wide Array of Fiber Materials in All Industries

We sell fiber materials that are used in all manner of industries, from fisheries and agriculture to construction, automotive, all types of manufacturing, and recreation. In addition to polyester, nylon, and vinylon, we deploy proprietary functional fibers that include glass fibers, activated carbon fibers that exert a strong effect in air and water filtration systems, and the biomass material Terramac that has a low environmental impact.

High Share of Nonwoven Fabrics and Proprietary Synthetics

Spunbonded nonwoven fabrics and discontinuous-fiber nonwoven fabrics are focus products in the field of industrial materials, as demand is increasing for these materials in civil engineering, agriculture and household necessities. In addition to original fabrics, we also handle all manner of processing, such as slitting, rewinding, printing, bag making, evaporation, and coating. Our glass bead Sparklite®, used in reflectors, is also gaining attention and expanding into new applications.
