  • Engineering Plastic Metalinus

    Metalinus is a high-quality material that can create a non-coated product exterior of equal quality without the conventional painting process.

  • Engineering Plastic PC/PBT for automotive interior parts

    Compared to existing PC/ABS materials, PC/PBT has excellent formability and impact strength. Thanks to its high chemical resistance, it can be used without coating.

  • Engineering Plastic Recycled fish net materials

    This material is made by reprocessing the PA6 material of scrap fish nets from coastal regions in Korea. It has adequate heat resistance to be used for the automotive engine room.

  • Engineering Plastic Siloxane PC

    Siloxane PC is a specialty PC product that uses novel raw materials independently developed by Samyang Chemical R&D. Its low-temperature impact strength, chemical resistance, and flame resistance properties can be adjusted according to user requirements.

  • Eco-friendly (bio-based polymer) Adhesive for EV motor core

    This adhesive is developed using the ISB material independently developed by Samyang Corporation. It has better adhesiveness, reliability and durability compared to competitor products.

  • Mobility & energy Ion-exchange filters for hydrogen vehicles

    Our ion-exchange filters for hydrogen vehicles have a service life that is 20% longer than existing products. They have excellent metal removal efficiency in both low and high temperatures and currently supplied to global companies.

  • Display semiconductor Photoinitiator

    As the first oxime photoinitiator developed in Korea, our photoinitiator has high penetration and solubility in various absorption wavelengths. It is supplied to global companies.

  • Display semiconductor Photo acid generator

    By applying the new NIT structure for the first time in Korea, our photo acid generator has outstanding solubility and heat safety. It is supplied to numerous global companies.

  • Display semiconductor Ultrapure water ion resins

    This ion-exchange resin used for cleaning semiconductor wafers have minimized leakage of organic matters and great metal removal efficiency. It is supplied to global companies.

  • Digtal Transformation AI Modeling

    Using tens of thousands of pieces of data in Samyang Corporation’s extensive database, we designed our own AI-modeling program. We use the program to develop key properties and color mixes for engineering plastics and improved our R&D efficiency.

  • Digtal Transformation Molecular dynamics

    We predict properties through a computer simulation based on the formulas for chemical structures and energy relationships. The results are used to select basic materials and suggest the direction for basic material development.
