Our plant has a strategic advantage due to its close proximity to the raw materials from our MMA Monomer Plants and also to the growing Asian PMMA market.
 
Our plant adopts a safe and compact process, which is able to produce a wide range of product grades from high fluidity resin to low fluidity resin.

PMMA is manufactured by continuous bulk polymerisation of MMA-Monomer. The process is simple and compact and highly efficient as it is vertically integrated with the MMA-Monomer plants. Applications include general purpose, lens, extruded sheets, LCD applications, etc.

Our plant's utilization of state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, together with continual technical support from Sumitomo Chemical, strives to maintain consistent production of high quality products to achieve greater customer satisfaction. The flow chart below summarizes the production process.
