Film - From packaging to industrial and optical, our film contributes to our customers’ value enhancement.

  • Nylon film (Food packaging, Medicine, Secondary cells)
  • Polyester film (Packaging, Optics, and Industrial)

Film PU entered the Nylon film business in 1996 and PET film business in 1997 based on the technology it had gained in the textile industry. Nylon film has excellent impact strength, pinhole property, printability, and oxygen barrier properties, and it is widely used for food packaging and as a packaging material for various household products. Hyosung Chemical’s nylon film is leading the industry in the South Korean nylon film market based on stable quality and is growing into a global leader through expanding our presence in the Chinese market. PET film has excellent strength, heat resistance, and dimensional stability, and it is used for electric and electronic materials and various other industrial materials including packaging and optic materials. Based on continuous technological development, Hyosung Chemical is strengthening its growth base by making forays into high value-added film fields, including optical film, release film for process, and film for windows. We are working hard to advance our PET film into becoming the leader of the specialty film market(packaging, industrial, and optical films) and make our NY film become the global leader.

TPA - A leader of the chemical raw material industry trusted by customers for the best quality it delivers

  • TPA (Purified Terephthalic Acid)

TPA PU annually produces and supplies 420,000 tons of high purity TPA which is not only a main raw material for high functionality polyester fibers but is also used to produce various industrial and everyday goods including tire cord, pet bottles, and polyester film. Produced with state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge methods based on the technology and experience gained in the synthetic fiber industry, Hyosung Chemical’s high purity TPA contributes to increasing the competitiveness of polyester-related manufacturers in South Korea as well as many corners of the world including Asia and Europe thanks to its superlative quality and stable properties.
