Our first synthetic rubber plant outside Japan is located on Jurong Island of Singapore. Sumitomo Chemical’s S-SBR has consistently earned high praises from customers in the tyre manufacturing industries both in Japan and overseas for being a highly fuel-efficient tyre material with outstanding abrasion resistance. Building on this reputation, our Singapore S-SBR plant has already become one of the primary suppliers of synthetic rubber to tyre manufacturers and factories in Asia.

Our plants adopt a safe and compact process, which can produce a wide range of product grades from high fluidity resin to low fluidity resin.
Poly Methyl Methacrylate polymer is manufactured by continuous bulk polymerisation of MMA-Monomer. The process is simple, compact, and is highly efficient due to the vertical integration of the MMA and SUMIPEX® PMMA plants. Applications of SUMIPEX® PMMA polymer include general purpose, lens manufacturing, extruded sheets, LCD applications, etc.
Our plants’ utilisation of state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, together with continual technical support from Sumitomo Chemical, strive to maintain consistent production of high quality products to achieve superior customer satisfaction.

Main Product: MMA monomer
Methyl Methacrylate Monomer is manufactured by oxidation of isobutylene. The process does not use any toxic raw material and does not produce waste acid by-products. Applications include cast sheets, plastic modifiers, emulsions for paints/adhesives, etc. MMA is also used as a raw material for SUMIPEX® PMMA Polymer.
Our plants are constructed based on Sumitomo Chemical’s innovative technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. In addition, it is a safe and reliable process that does not utilize any highly toxic raw materials. It is also capable of producing monomers that are suitable for optical grade polymers.
