My Thoughts on Research

There are many industrial applications in the field of polymer alloys. This is why Toray's engineering is the research and development of polymer alloys. The great thing about materials research at a manufacturer is that we put our own wisdom into new technologies to create new products, and work hard every day on our extensive research activities. Nanotechnology was first introduced in a 1959 lecture by Nobel Prize in Physics winner, Professor Richard Feynman. Now, with the advancement of more detailed theories in the field of polymer alloys, development of new nano-order alloying technologies is well underway. I plan to continue further deepening my expertise and contributing to society by creating new value through new technologies.
