What is Chukyo Kasei Kogyo?
New materials, lubricant and release agent technology that contribute to processing technology
Release agent technology
Bring the user and manufacturer together depends on how well our technology “separates” or releases.
Chukyo Kasei was the first to successfully nationalize a release agent for forming plastics. Thereafter, we continued to develop this advanced technology not only for resin, but for other materials that require releasing such as rubber and semiconductor parts.
We constructed a system to co-develop with the customer in order to keep pace with an industry that constantly develops at a fast speed. We offer support to troubleshoot and resolve any potential problems and meet the necessary requirements.
Cold forging lubricant technology
These days companies are becoming more conscious about the environment and their footprint. We continue to make advancements with cold forging not only in terms of processability but also by making environmentally friendly products that consider the surrounding environment, the exposure of people and the working conditions, such as special lubricants that target reduced soot, smell, contamination or free of hazardous substances.
Chukyo Kasei Kogyo Support
Security and peace of mind
Chukyo Kasei Kogyo was established as the only grease manufacturer in the Chukyo region in May of 1948. Our company has been thriving for more than 65 years.
During that time, we have continued to develop lubricants, metalworking lubricants and resin release agents, offering more than 3,600 products that have created a loyal customer base both domestically and internationally.
In addition, we not only acquired ISO 9001 and 14001 but were also recognized as an “Aichi Quality Company” for manufacturing premium goods. We make the customers our number one priority and strive to deliver “security and peace of mind.”
Many of the products previously manufactured focused too much on performance and cost, and as a result, they included environmentally hazardous substances. However, Chukyo Kasei Kogyo actively took steps to remove those substances and was a pioneer in developing lead free lubricants and agents in the field of metalworking lubricants.
In addition, we are actively engaged in developing special lubricants that target reduced soot, smell and contamination. We can provide “environmental support” that addresses the customers’ needs.
Apart from our own original products and those standard products that are compliant with specific regulations (API, NSF, etc.), Chukyo Kasei Kogyo’s lineup also supports products tailored to the customers’ requirements or OEM products.
We can offer “custom-made” products with specific performance and quality that meets the customers’ needs.
Small lot support
In this industry, a standard order for lubricants is generally between 10,000 L and 20,000 L. However, Chukyo Kasei Kogyo offers support for minimum orders as small as 200 L.
Standard grease orders are generally between 3,000 kg and 4,000 kg. However, we accept minimum orders as small as 100 kg.
Standard metalworking lubricant orders are generally between 2,000 L and 4,000 L. However, we accept minimum orders as small as 200 L.
To ensure customer satisfaction, we are happy to provide “small lot support” for all types of orders.
Chukyo Kasei Kogyo has sales offices located in Kariya (Head office), Tokyo, Osaka and Kyushu. From these locations, our sales staff can quickly provide product descriptions, quotations and follow-up support to our customers. We are dedicated to providing “quick support” to ensure that we meet your needs as soon as possible.
Reduce total cost
At Chukyo Kasei Kogyo, we developed our products by focusing on quality. While the price may seem rather expensive, we always try to “reduce the total cost” which ultimately includes the equipment, time and energy that we use. We achieve this reduction by extending the life of the die/mold, improving the yield rate and ensuring our lubricants and other agents that have a long product life.
Our technology and development
For example, one of our customers had the following problem: “We are in a bind because we received notice from the product manufacturer, which we had used up until now, that production has been discontinued.” We get the details about the product and introduce the customer to a compatible product within the Chukyo Kasei Kogyo lineup. Or, our R&D center comes up with a newly developed product to meet the customer’s requirements.
At Chukyo Kasei Kogyo, “our technology and development” can offer you a product with better performance than your existing product.
For Center Oil, we currently have production locations in Thailand, China and the U.S. In our system, the production is completely based on the direction from the head office to ensure the same quality in all of our products.
In addition, we also have sales distributors in China and other Asian countries for our release agent type products.
We use our domestic network as a focal point to ensure that our “overseas locations” deliver the same quality product even when the customer needs to move production overseas and source locally.
Our R&D center provides the foundation for creating the premium quality that we stand by.
To test release agents, we have actual dies/molds and test equipment for casting/molding in place in order to check the release performance and improve our quality further.
In addition, we have a variety of analyzers and testers to evaluate the performance of the lubrication. This also enables us to provide premium quality products that are compliant with international standards and regulations.
Feel free to contact us for a consultation about your problem or issue.
We specialize in all fields that require release agents, such as plastics, rubbers and glass. We also support metalworking fields that focus on deformation processing as well as all other fields that are related to lubrication.
We are constantly engaged in joint R&D projects in order to actively troubleshoot and resolve those issues that the customer faces. Therefore, feel free to consult with us about your project regardless of the level of difficulty or if it concerns a new area or new material.
