cat-logos-plastics-v01 Plastics have been called one of the greatest innovations of the 20th century and are found in almost every facet of daily life. Nagase offers a variety of technologies for plastic materials, and our portfolio includes microparticles and beads, nanoparticles, monomers and oligomers. We leverage the strengths of our group companies, such as Nagase ChemteX, to provide multifaceted solutions. Partner with Nagase to innovate your brand for success.

3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping

Reactive monomers effective in cationic UV-curing for reducing viscosity and increasing the cure speed of glycidyl ethers.

Mono- and multi-functional aliphatic epoxy crosslinkers, reactive diluents, and modifiers. Grades include high functionality, varying degrees of water solubility, low chlorine content, hydroxyl functionality, and bio-based content. Low viscosity and non yellowing. Provides good adhesion to metal and nylon substrates.

Core-Shell Impact Modifiers

Functionalized Core-Shell Microparticles

Impact modifier for thermoplastics and toughener for thermosets, epoxies, UPEs, powder coatings and UV-curable coatings.


Other Additives

Raw materials for engineering plastics, including non-halogenated flame retardants, such as phosphazene flame retardants.

Flat Chopped Glass Fibers

Unique high performance glass fiber with flat cross sections.

Polymer Melt Filters

Patented polymer melt filtration system for filtration of various resins prior to pelletization (or other processes) and film extrusion of both optical films as well as packaging and industrial films.

Polymeric Microparticles

Crosslinked acrylic and styrenic microspheres. Suited for waterborne and solvent-borne systems. Excellent dispersability in paint formulations. Excellent compatibility with coated film. Durable matte or soft-feel coating, which has superior scratch and mar resistance.

Crosslinked silicone (PMSQ) microspheres with a consistent spherical shape and narrow particle distribution. Superior heat resistance with a lower refractive index for more efficient light diffusion.
