The new state-of-the-art polymer innovation center is fully equipped with the latest technology for the evaluation and testing of solutions in polymer production, with a focus on engineering plastics and polymer additives, according to the company. Operated by specialists with extensive experience in polymer R&D, the center conducts regular activities including customer seminars, technical trainings, injection molding tests and product property comparisons. Polymer production in Korea is a rapidly growing sector and relies on investment in R&D to ensure it remains innovative and cutting-edge on the world stage.
DKSH Korea also recently inaugurated a new innovation center dedicated to paints and coatings applications. The center provides formulation support and technical assistance to paints and coatings customers, which allows faster time-to-market for new products developed by DKSH key clients.
The existing innovation center for the personal care and cosmetics industry will relocate to larger premises to even better serve DKSH’s large customer base of manufacturers. Among its many competences, the center provides solutions for color cosmetics, skin care, sun protection and body care formulations. It has successfully contributed to the commercialization of many innovative products and supports companies to tailor industry trends from other markets to local needs.
Specialists from both innovation centers also work in tandem with DKSH’s regulatory consultation teams to assist and support business partners on the complexities of regulations in Korea. With its worldwide innovation center network, DKSH fosters a culture of knowledge transfer across industries to drive synergies and develop added value for its business partners.
