Expansion of LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) Polymerization Plant
Polyplastics Co., Ltd.
Polyplastics Co., Ltd. (CEO: Toshio Shiwaku, Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo) has decided to construct the new polymerization plant with the production capacity of 5,000 tons/y at Polyplastics Taiwan Co., Ltd. （Headquarters: Taipei, hereinafter referred to as PTW).
As a highly heat-resistant super engineering plastic, LCP is used in a wide range of industrial fields, mainly electronic components used in information and communication equipment such as personal computers and smartphones, and its market has continued to expand at a high growth rate. In recent years, the market demand has increased along with the increase in investment for 5G equipment, and it is expected that the applications of LCP will continue to expand with the full-scale support for 5G millimeter waves.
We have the LCP polymerization plant with the production capacity of 15,000 tons/y at the Fuji Plant (Fuji City, Shizuoka Prefecture), and PTW has been responsible for the compounding process in the manufacturing of LCP products. This new polymerization plant enables PTW to have the integrated production of LCP products from polymerization to compounding. In the future, by expanding PTW’s LCP polymerization plant, the Polyplastics Group as a whole will achieve the production capacity of 25,000 tons/y of LCP polymerization.
Expansion: 5,000 tons/y
Site: Kaohsiung plant at PTW
Operation start: 1st half of 2024
To respond to the global market of LCP which is expected to expand rapidly in the future, we will continue to make efforts to earn the trust of our customers with high performance, high quality and stable supply as a top manufacturer of LCP based on the further growth strategy of LCP business.
Polyplastics Taiwan Co., Ltd. Is a joint venture company that manufactures and sells engineering plastic invested by Polyplastics Co., Ltd. (75% stake) and Chang Chun Group (25% stake) (Headquarters: Taipei, Plant: Kaohsiung).
