Samyang Corpotation

Chemical Research Center

Since it launched the Comprehensive Research Center in Jeonju Plant in 1979, Samyang has carried out R&D on medicines, medical devices, chemistry, and industrial materials.
Chemical Research Center

Samyang Corporation began to lay the foundation in R&D to become a leading global company with the establishment of the Comprehensive Research Center in Jeonju Plant in 1979. In 1993, the corporation aimed to secure a solid growth engine by expanding its business areas to a futuristic high-tech field and moving its research center to Daedeok Innopolis. Since then, the research center has been carrying out research activities in industrial materials and specialty chemicals.

The Chemical Research Center carries out R&D in new high-tech materials through the synthesis and refinement of engineering plastics, such as PC, PBT, PET, etc. The company developed high-flow PC through synthesis, branched PC with enhanced formability in fusion state, and silicone polycarbonate copolymer that has excellent low-temperature high-impact, flame-resistant, and anti-chemical property to lighten and reduce the size of materials. Using these base resin and compound technology, we developed a high-tech engineering plastic that offers high heat resistance, UV stability, etc.

Samyang Corporation focuses on developing new technologies and products that will make the lives of
customers richer and more convenient based on its long-standing core competencies.
