The Kawasaki Plant, located in the Kawasaki Petrochemical Complex, started Japan's first mass-production of synthetic rubber in July 1959. For over 40 years, the plant has produced outstanding oil-resistant, heat-resistant specialty rubber for safety-critical automobile parts including belts and hoses, and synthetic latex used as the binder for coated paper and carpets as well as for work gloves and cosmetic puffs.
True to its principle, the Plant represents a level of advanced operation appropriate to its metropolitan setting by producing excellent quality product lines through its original technology.
The Kawasaki Plant has acquired ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications, and will continue to provide useful products with due consideration for environmental preservation and safety as well as ongoing quality improvements.
