Redesigning plastic processing technology for improved environmental and economic sustainability

Keiryo 軽量 = Less weight

Keiryo, meaning ’less weight’, is the core concept behind what the patented Keiryo Packaging Technology delivers. Based on cutting-edge applications of academically well-grounded polymer rheology science, the KP Technology integrates molecular ordering into the polymer melt, triggering flow-enhanced morphological changes to the polymer mass. In turn, these advanced morphological structures greatly enhance the overall material functionality. Hence less material is required to provide a similar performance by the plastic article.

The KP Technology is applicable across various conversion technologies (ISBM, Direct Injection) for both amorphous (such as PC, PS et al) and semi-crystalline (such as PET, PP, etc.) polymers which are used in billions of finished plastic articles annually. It is our mission to improve the materials performance and consequently to enhance both the economic and environmental sustainability of such packaging articles.
