Zeon to Expand Production Capacity for High-Transparency Thermoplastic Resin Cyclo-olefin PolymersPrint Page

June 10, 2015

ZEON CORPORATION (President: Kimiaki Tanaka) will expand annual production capacity at the Mizushima Plant for cyclo-olefin polymers (COP), a high-transparency thermoplastic resin, from 31,000 tons to 37,000 tons.

Zeon is expanding the production capacity to meet the growing demand for COP (product names: ZEONEX® and ZEONOR®) for its major applications in markets such as printers, LCD televisions, smartphones, digital cameras, and medical inspection equipment. The decision is also due to the prospective business development of a new material based on Zeon’s proprietary molecular design. The expansion in production capacity is scheduled to be completed in April 2016.
