Mitsui Chemicals Europe GmbH

Injection molding is the most common method for manufacturing plastic parts, especially when it comes to more complex shapes. It can be used for the production of a huge variety of parts weighing from a few tenths of a gram up to more than one hundred kilograms.

In 2021, the global market revenue of plastic injection molding amounted to USD 271.6 billion and more than 5 million tons of material were processed. The market size is estimated to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of approximately 5 % until 2030, as demand for lightweight parts increases in various industries (e.g. automotive and consumer electronics).

Mitsui Chemicals helps to meet this growing demand by providing diverse material solutions for injection molded plastic and composite parts. The portfolio comprises several neat resin and compound materials, ranging from commodity plastics like polypropylene (PP) to high-performance plastics like thermoplastic polyimide (TPI).

This includes MILASTOMER™, a polyolefin-based thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), which offers an advantageous solution for various automotive applications. Furthermore, Mitsui Chemicals’ adhesive polymer ADMER™ provides a solution for multi-material injection molding that includes polyethylene (PE) or PP.

Besides these pellet materials, Mitsui Chemicals’ material portfolio also comprises the carbon fiber reinforced PP material TAFNEX™. This unique material can be inserted into the mold to structurally reinforce and potentially enhance the appearance of PP parts.
