Medical, Eco-Friendly

Kuraray maintains both a medical business centered on dental materials and environment-related businesses.

In the medical business, Kuraray Noritake Dental Inc. draws on Kuraray’s high polymer chemistry technology to develop and manufacture organic dental materials and on Noritake’s ceramics technology to create inorganic dental materials and sells these materials worldwide. In environment-related businesses, Kuraray provides comprehensive water treatment solutions that utilize water treatment membranes and wastewater treatment PVA gel. Furthermore, Carbon Materials Division pursues businesses that contribute to the improvement of the environment through such products as activated carbon, a material used to absorb impurities from both gases and liquids.
