RIKEN TECHNOS CORPORATION was established as “RIKEN VINYL INDUSTORY CO., LTD.” (former company name) in 1951 to produce and sell the Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) compound.
The company name was changed to “RIKEN TECHNOS CORPORATION” (a melding of the words “RIKEN,” “TECHNOLOGY” and “SUPPLIER”) in 2001, the 50th anniversary of company founding.
RIKEN TECHNOS CORPORATION operates business in Japan and internationally based on comprehensive plastics processing technology, which has been developed since the beginning with three core business: Compound, Film, and Food Wrapping Film.
RIKEN TECHNOS CORPORATION, as a “challenger that harnesses the power of science” based on the new corporate philosophy introduced as “RIKEN TECHNOS WAY,” produces high quality products and technologies to meet the increasingly diverse and sophisticated needs of our customers and of society.
We produce compounds using our leading innovative technology. Our compounds are used in every situation in daily life.
Compounds consist of mixtures of base resin and several different additives that produce new properties. Such compounds are mainly used in extrusion and injection molding. RIKEN TECHNOS CORPORATION produces various types of compounds, such as general-purpose compounds (e.g., polyvinyl chloride resin), thermoplastic elastomers with rubber-like properties, and high-function compounds represented by engineering plastics that have various properties, Such as flameresistance, electro-conductivity, or low-friction siding, as well as biomass compounds—which are gathering attention as environmentally friendly materials. These compounds can be used in various fields such as automobiles, industrial components, home appliances, toys, medical supplies, building materials, and construction materials, as well as in IT industries, which are showing impressive progress. These compounds are ideally suited to a growing number of sophisticated and diversified consumer needs.

Our films, featuring high functionality and sophisticated design achieved by superior manufacturing technologies, are familiar to everyone and ideal for a variety of purposes.
For many years, our films have received high product quality ratings thanks to their excellent thickness accuracy, sophisticated design, and easy processability, all resulting from our efforts to produce highly functional and high-quality products. We have incorporated state-of-the-art equipment for use at every phase of calendar (rolling) _Im forming, extrusion _Im forming, laminating, and coating with various types of films in order to guarantee their high product functionality. When it comes to the coating processes for window films—including heat shielding and UV protection films—and electronic materials that need to be processed under clean environments, we have incorporated equipment suitable for highly precise film coating processes; this type of precision is necessary in the manufacturing of materials used in electronics such as optical films for LEDs and touch panels that require high cleanliness. We have also focused on the protection of the environment including recycling to meet current needs. We developed environment-friendly films such as olefinic films and the polyester type films RIVESTAR® ahead of our competitors. These films are widely used and gathering attention from many industries.
