Main Products



Nippon Kayaku Catalysts are used to produce acrylic acid and methacrylic acid. Acrylic acid is a raw material for super absorbent polymers, acrylic paints, and adhesives. Methacrylic acid is usually esterified to MMA monomer, which is a feedstock for acrylic resins of which transparency and impact resistance are utilized as a substitute for glass, such as large aquarium.
