Our plastic business started in 1953 with Polyamide (PA) Resins for Toray’s original synthetics fiber business. From here, we expanded to businesses for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polybutylene Terephthalate (PBT), Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS), and Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) for use in Toray’s semi-finished products and compounds businesses.

Toray’s Resins Division has expanded globally to 21 technical centers and production sites in 11 countries.

With “Chemistry” as our core technology for innovation, we aim to continuously create innovative and advanced materials for the following growing markets: Future mobility, Communications and Connectivity, Life sciences and Green energy.

Toray’s Resin Division provides comprehensive solutions to our valued customers and full process support from planning to mass production. Our experts work closely with your engineers to understand your product needs so we can provide the best proposals for material selection, failure analysis, molding evaluation, product design and more.


Since the 1970s, Toray has pioneered CAE simulation to aid part design and molding for its customers, and also promoted its in-house advanced CAE software commercially.

Toray CAE technologies combine many evaluation techniques with an extensive material database to enable effective recommendations on the processing and performance of the final part.

Today, Toray provides hundreds of simulation evaluations each year, globally.
