September 24, 2013

ZEON CORPORATION (Head office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Kimiaki Tanaka) has completed the expansion of its new manufacturing plant for C5 petroleum resin at its subsidiary Zeon Chemicals (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (Head office: Rayong Province, Thailand; President Yutaka Isozaki; hereafter “ZCT”) and a completion ceremony took place on September 23, 2013.

This latest expansion will enable ZCT to produce 40,000 tons of C5 petroleum resin per year. With ZCT and ZEON Corporation’s Mizushima Plant, the ZEON Group is now capable of an annual production capacity of 80,000 tons C5 petroleum resin.

C5 petroleum resin is used for a broad range of applications including hot-melt adhesives and general use adhesives, as well as traffic paint. Need for the material has been increasing in recent years. In addition to demand from Europe and the United States, requirement from Asia is expected to surge for its use in adhesives for hygiene materials, traffic paint and other applications.

The ZEON Group seeks to strengthen its global supply system through this latest expansion to continue meeting robust demand.
