Teijin develops new carbodiimide anti-hydrolysis agent

TOKYO, JAPAN: Teijin Limited has developed a new carbodiimide anti-hydrolysis agent that exhibits superior anti-hydrolysis properties to improve the durability of various plastics. As it does not generate isocyanate gas, a toxic chemical usually generated during the use of carbodiimide agents, the new agent is expected to help improve working environments for manufacturers.

Commercialization is envisioned by 2015, with a target annual production of 100 tonne by 2018. The new agent already complies with various regulations regarding harmful substances in Japan and Europe including REACH, and Teijin expects to achieve regulatory compliance in the US and China markets as well.
