We started out by developing the production process for carbon disulfide, the raw material for the rayon chemical fiber. The technological prowess built by this process has been handed down through an unbroken series of chemical products.
These products include anhydrous sodium sulfate, which is blended into synthetic detergents，bath salts，and dying aids，and insoluble sulfur，which is used as a vulcanizing agent for radial tires.
We are global suppliers of indispensable ingredients required in everyday products, with the high quality of the ingredients supported by sophisticated technology.
Our inorganic chemical products are important elements in a wide variety of settings in people's lives, from familiar items to products with global applications.
In 1964，Shikoku Chemicals Corporation was the first company in Japan to succeed in the mass production of chlorinated isocyanurates.
Using this as a raw material, we have perfected a variety of technological applications，creating our own proprietary products.
Our lineup includes swimming pool and septic tank disinfectants/sanitizers as well as products designed for bathing facilities and the sanitary market. We are also moving into the sewage treatment sector，making a wide-ranging contribution to the water hygiene environment.
Our Fine Chemicals, which began with the production of imidazole derivatives, is expanding into new areas of activity while continuing to meet the needs of customers.
In addition to our “CUREZOL” range of epoxy resin curing agents, the company is moving into novel areas including pharmaceutical raw materials, and advanced materials such as a resin modifier “Glycoluril Derivatives”.
We have also developed range of printed wiring board products, including “Glicoat”, a heat-resistant OSP (Organic Solderability Preservative) that boasts the top market share both within Japan and abroad. We support cutting-edge technologies worldwide in a diverse range of fields.
