Our chemical business is operated globally in the following three fields: Oleo Chemicals, to ensure a stable supply of fats- and oils-based products; multi-function Performance Chemicals based mainly on surfactants; and Specialty Chemicals, high value-added products developed to meet customer needs. We will continue providing chemical products with unique characteristics to respond to the trust customers in all types of industries place in Kao.
*In construction field, Kao enjoys high prestige for its water reducing agent.
Naphthalene Water reducing agents derived from Kao's surface chemistry are utilized as cement dispersing agent to improve the intensity and flow property of concrete. For over 10 years, MIGHTY has been acknowledged in tubular piles projects and other intensifying cement projects.
Currently, a new generation of naphthalene watering reducing agents is under the research to supplement the tradition agents. Besides, there also includes the series of diverse con-structive additives such as anti-stripping agent, emulsifying agent for asphaltum roadways, releasing agents for smoothing concrete's appearance and foaming agent for plasterboards.
Nowadays Kao's surfactant chemicals are widely used in the steel industry. For example, the rolling oils and cleaners are just some broadly appreciated products in many large steel factories in Asia. It is through years of study towards customer's manufacturing process and cumulation of experience that enable Kao to innovate relating steel additives for individual clients. And the value of products exists not only in itself, but also in the catalytic effect on procedure that make possible the greatest overall benefit.
