Technology Deployment and Cooperation

Development Stage Commercialization Completed (already delivered: yes)
Intellectual Property Right Yes
Joint Researchers (their role) Not published (Please inquire us.)
Example of Application ・Automobile body parts, interior parts
・Aircraft interior parts
Technical Problems <Constraint> Since thermoplastic resin is used as base material, there are some restraints in use at high temperature.
<Business plan> Providing our findings, we will shorten the development lead time and promote commercialization through joint research and joint development with customers.
Collaborator needed to Improve Research organizations, universities and companies which are able to conduct various evaluations of products
