Responding to all needs with original processing technology
Special blending technology
PORON’s original core technology responding to a diversity of needs, including flame retardancy, heat resistance, waterproof, water sealability, high strength, low density and antistatic.
Integral molding technology
A technology which maximizes PORON’s performance represented by PET support pursuing thinness and rigidity, PET release with improved workability and the latest technology which applies adhesive agent.
Special surface technology
A technology to fully apply a stable, high grip force, opposing high sliding force and other friction performances, as well as a technology responding to elaborate surface control such as surface adhesion and surface strength.
- Heat resistant Series
This series realizes high heat resistance while maintaining high performance such as high sealing performance, vibration-absorbing property, and dimensional stability, which are characteristic of PORON.
- Standard Series
With variety of density lineup, this series corresponds various application, such as seals, vibration insulation and shock absorption.
- Low-Outgassing Flame-Retardant Series
This series features low-outgassing and flame-retardant (UL94 HBF, FMVSS No.302) with consideration to safety and environmental protection.
- PET Support Thin Material Series
PET film body molding technology realizes a thinner foam with a low resilience and contains additional features, such as flame-retardant properties. This series can satisfy any fields of customer needs.
- Special Surface Series
While maintaining the same basic characteristics, we have added a series with new features, like high friction, high slidability and high surface strength, through special surface treatment.
- Foot Pad Series
The Foot Pad series includes materials with a comparably high hardness grade. This grade is specifically for foot rubber.
- Consumer Series
A high-performance shock-absorbent series with cushioning and contour-fitting performance making it ideal for applications such as shoe insoles and sports pads.
Can be used as the optimal secondary water sealant for for sealing water in public construction and civil engineering as well as for waterproofing water supply systems in household equipment.
- Mobile & Electronics
A special grade developed to respond to needs such as high reliability, compactness, lightweight and thinness by adding optimal functions to mobile devices. PORON and NanNex for mobile and electronics applications.
In addition to sealing and packing used in the harsh environment surrounding the engine, these products support creation of the optimal travelling space as vibration-control material and cushioning material in the form of interior instrument panels, navigation systems, glove boxes and so on. PORON and NanNex for automotive applications.
- Foot Pad
In household appliances, large health, medical and beauty therapy equipment of medium to heavy weight and light to medium weight small/thin PC, AV, game consoles and surrounding parts, this special-purpose foot rubber PORON product capable of gripping offers low compression set, excellent vibration absorption, stain resistance and anti-slipping functions in order to support firm footing.
PORON for consumer applications which provides a new-sensation fitting feel and supports shock absorption across a broad range of active scenes. This product has an overwhelmingly low compression set compared with other material such as EVA and gel and has been continuously adopted in shoe insoles, the internal shock-absorbent pads of sport gear/wear, etc. in order to achieve high shock absorption and resistance.
- Civil Construction & Housing
PORON and NanNex for infrastructure applications which have earned a strong reputation as water-sealing material for concrete product interfaces and sealant for the outer panels of buildings. This product also demonstrates its strength in waterproofing measures for precision equipment such as next-generation energy supply systems.
- Railway & Airplane
A material which meets the safety and comfort standards that are required for adoption on mass transit equipment. Using the know-how accumulated through automotive applications and adding functions responsible to the needs of aircraft and railway vehicles, PORON and NanNex can be used in a wide-range of applications, from interior and exterior parts to precision equipment and control devices.
