The Mitsubishi Rayon Group manufactures a wide range of plastics, most notably acrylic resin (PMMA), which is valued for its excellent transparency, unique optical features, and strong weatherability.
In addition to their use in signs and large displays, as well as tanks for aquariums, acrylic sheets have recently found demand in the IT field for use in such products as light-guiding plates for the backlights of LCDs and the display screens of cell phones.
Acrylic Molding Material
Our easily moldable acrylic molding material ACRYPET is used in diverse applications in the automotive, consumer electronics, and optical device industries, including lenses, prisms and light-guiding plates. Specialized products are available featuring excellent impact resistance, antistatic performance and so on.
This is a film made from acrylic resins with excellent transparency and weatherability, in addition to which it is opaque to ultraviolet radiation. Applying ACRYPLEN as a laminate on top of other materials gives them the beautiful finish associated with acrylic resins and allows them to be used outdoors for long periods, thanks to the film's strong resistance to weather-induced deterioration. This product is thus widely used as a surface finish for construction materials.
Adding a small quantity of METABLEN to various resins improves and increases their impact strength and processability, and further improves the characteristics, the appearance and the effectiveness of their final products. These additives dramatically broaden the potential of plastics.
Large Water Tanks (Aquarium Panels)
Bending technology is capable of forming acrylic resin panels into water tanks that are curved, tunneled, or cylindrical in shape. Large seamless water tanks can also be formed using special polymerization technology. This technology has been used in aquariums both in Japan and overseas.

Acrylic Resin for Paints and Inks
In addition to a superior appearance, DIANAL coating gives improved weatherability and resistance to staining and other damage from chemicals. We have a wide product lineup including both liquid and solid types to suit all customer needs.
Plastisol-use Acrylic Powder
This was the world's first commercially-launched ecologically friendly acrylic powder for use in the production of plastisol. In addition to its environmental merits, films of the material can be formed at low temperatures, and demand is growing rapidly for use as an undercoat and body sealant for motor vehicles.
UV Curable Coating
DIABEAM is a resin that is cured by irradiation with ultraviolet rays or electronic beams. It has won praise as an environment-friendly paint that does not contain volatile constituents, and as such, is widely used in painting, printing, and surface-processing.
UV Curable Super-hard Coating for Plastics
This is a super-hard, scratch-proof, ultraviolet-cured coating material. It is used in a wide variety of applications, from films to molded plastics finishing.
Plastic Optical Fiber
ESKA is a plastic optical fiber product that exploits the excellent light-transmission properties of acrylic resins. It possesses a number of important characteristics not found in glass optical fiber, including light weight, flexibility, and easy processability. We are marketing ESKA for a wide number of applications in the fields of automotive networks, lighting, sensors, FA (Factory Automation) and data transmission.
Rod Lens Arrays
RODSCOPE is reading devices for facsimile machines and scanners.
