A Focus on R&D

Graphenes in Plastics

Graphenes in Plastics

Leveraging our long history of experience with carbon materials, we are developing graphenes to create solutions that deliver breakthrough performance that can break trade-offs. Through in-house development and external collaborations, we have selected production routes that produce materials with unique morphologies and properties. Read the article in Compounding World.


Faster Innovation Through Lean Prototyping

Faster Innovation Through Lean Prototyping

We had an idea for improving evaporative loss control from automobiles using a new type of chemically activated carbon. By employing a process called lean prototyping, which allowed us to accelerate through the building, measuring and learning stages of innovation quickly and cost-efficiently, we were able to create a workable prototype system within one week.
