The DIC Group:Striving for a Sustainable Society Utilizing the Power of Chemistry to Solve Problems and Create New Value

Shipping, information, housing, food products—there are number of problems that need solving in the industrial fields that support our daily lifestyles. Through creative development of new products, the DIC Group is contributing to solutions for such problems while generating new value.

Placing top priority on safety, the environment and health while maximizing benefits from chemical products

While supporting customer lifestyles through our wide variety of chemical products, the DIC Group makes efforts to ensure safety, protect the environment and ensure health in every phase of the product life-cycle.

Our Efforts in Environmental Responsiveness with Printing Ink Products

Ink products not using hazardous substances (soy-oil ink and vegetable ink) of which decrease the use of petroleum-derived solvents have been developed.

Urethane Resin for Artificial Leather

In order to respond to the requirement for the decreasing of VOC inside the vehicle, we are also putting our efforts into the development of environmentally friendly products, such as toluene-free and water-based materials.

Halogen-free PPS Resin

DIC has successfully decreased the chlorine content of the PPS resin to a level lower than the requirement level, 900 ppm. Thus, DIC has completed the lineup of low-halogen PPS compounds.


DIC has developed various types of adhesives to prevent the release of VOC such as a high-solid type in which the amount of organic solvent is reduced, a water-based type for which tap water can be used.
