DIC opens news solid compound technical center in Malaysia
Solid compound technical centre Asia Pacific.

TOKYO, JAPAN: DIC Corporation has opened a new solid compound technical centre Asia Pacific in Malaysia to develop and improve products suitable for the markets in Southeast Asia and South Asia. And to strengthen its technical service structure in the compound business of polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) compounds and resin colourants.

The facility is located on the premises of DIC Compounds (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (DCM) and has been in full operation since January 2017.

PPS compounds are used in automobile engine peripherals due to their excellent heat and chemical resistance. The use of hybrid cars and electric vehicles is expected to increase dramatically in comparison with conventional cars due to the replacement of metal materials for lightweight cars and the sophistication of the required characteristics through engine downsizing.

In addition, resin colourants are widely used in everyday goods, packaging materials for foodstuffs, and various films. Against the backdrop of improved living standards, the market for daily-use products in the region is expected to grow at an annual rate of around 4 percent. Up to now, DCM has mainly been developing and improving in Japan. We have newly installed injection moulding machines and equipment for property evaluation that are compatible with engineering plastics, and have established a system that can respond to the needs of customers in the region in a timely manner. This allows the region to consistently deliver product development and improvement, as well as technical services, the company said.

The technical centre is the fourth largest compound-related technical centre in Japan, China, and Europe, and we intend to steadily expand our business by strengthening our response to customer needs and winning the trust of our customers, the company added.
