ADEKA's functional Polymers are widely used for automobiles, home electric appliances, housing materials, civil engineering and construction materials, and articles for daily use, and are indispensable for modern life. ADEKA comprehensively manufactures and sells a wide array of products ranging from various polyols that are a material of polyurethane, to eco-minded aqueous urethane/ epoxy resins, to high-purity epoxy resins.
Water Borne Resins
The characteristic of our aqueous resins is that these are nonhazardous materials. These products exert functions inherent in only resins by volatilizing water through our unique technologies. These resins attract attention as resins with increased rust-prevention, flexibility, and weathering resistance as well as earth-friendly and human-friendly resins in addition to keeping conventional performances of organic solvent based resins.
This series consists of aqueous urethane resins produced based on ADEKA's polyols and emulsification technologies of many years. Our products are used for a wide range of applications including coatings, various base materials for coatings, adhesives, and improvement of resins.
This series consists of aqueous epoxy resins produced based on ADEKA's modified epoxy and emulsification technologies of many years. Our products are used for coatings (construction and corrosion proof), various primers, and adhesives.
Epoxy resins have excellent performances, workability, and economic efficiency among other thermosetting resins. They are applied to a wide range of areas, including coatings, electrics, and civil engineering and construction.
We provide a variety of materials characterized by various functions (handling ability, adhesiveness to different materials, anticorrosion property, flexibility, and durability) of epoxy resins.
These are low viscosity diluents having epoxy groups in the molecule. These diluents can be used without diminishing various performances of epoxy resins by adding 5 to 10% of these diluents into the base epoxy resin. Our diluents especially aim at low skin irritation products and highly purified products.
These are mainly hardeners of a two-part ambient temperature curing system. This broad lineup consists of mainly amine system products. These products impart characteristics such as heat resistance and flexibility, and are available for a wide range of applications, including building materials and coatings.
These are flooring materials that have special features such as heat resistance, chemical resistance, impact resistance, fast curing property, low temperature curing property, or low odor property. These products are suitable for floor applications in severe working environments such as chemical/food plants, sewerage facilities, etc.
Low Chlorine Epoxy Resins
We have special epoxy resins and curing agents of low chlorine type which are applicable to electronic materials. These resins achieve high performance not exhibited by other manufacturers, such as high adhesiveness to difficult-to-adhere materials like non-ferrous metals and polyimides, fast curing at low temperature (80°C), etc.
These are halogen-free resins produced by removing impurities from Bisphenol A and F epoxy resins. The resins have low crystallinity in addition to low chlorinity.
These are lowly chlorinated resins having special structures such as multifunctional alicyclic structure. Each resin has various characteristic features, such as high adhesiveness, high heat resistance, etc.
These are lowly chlorinated resins to which various characteristics have been imparted through rubber- or chelate-modifications. Each resin has features such as impact resistance and interface adherence.
These are low-viscosity and low chlorine diluents. These products are aimed at improvement of handling ability in electronic material applications.
These are thermosetting latent curing resins that can be stably stored at room temperature and the curing reaction proceeds only at a certain temperature.These can be single-part curing systems suitable for applications for structural bonding, etc.
ADEKA's urethane resins include a series of ether and ester polyols suitable for a wide range of applications as raw materials for different resins from flexible to hard strong polyurethane types.
High quality ether polyols can produce a number of products having excellent mechanical and physical performances from flexible to rigid foams suitable for broad applications, and with a variety of functional types. Furthermore, these products are also used for coatings, adhesives, and sealing materials.
High quality ester polyols can produce a number of products having excellent mechanical and physical performances, such as urethane foams, elastomers, coatings, adhesives, and various coating materials.
