Welcome to Meiwa Plastic Industries, Ltd.

December 2nd. 2016, marks the 70th anniversary of Meiwa Plastic Industries, Ltd. Since 1946,we would like to contribute to society as an expert of the Phenolic resin on the technology cultivated while to meet the customer's request. I wish to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported us those long years.

Phenolic resin is the most historic plastic. Cause by such as excellent heat resistance and durability,flame resistance, adhesion, Phenolic resin has continued to be widely used for many years.
We have corresponded to the various needs of our customers by applying the new functions and features.
Our products are mainly using curing agent of epoxy resin for semiconductor encapsulation materials and laminates, and a liquid crystal resist agent. Recntly, as ecological products that do not contain heavy metals and halogen, our Biphenyl resin have been used in a semiconductor encapsulation material. Moreover in the future, we will expand the business environment in ecological products manufacturing in our mind.

While continuing to provide quality, technologies and services, we would like to be a company that continues to grow as an indispensable company now and in the future.

I ask for your continued support.
