We are now in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Super engineering plastic, which is lighter and stronger than metal, is receiving interest as the core material for futuristic automobiles and cutting edge industries. Polyphenylene Sulfide, also known as PPS, is a representative super engineering plastic. On this week's #Korea 4.0, we visit SK Chemicals, Korea's leading chemical company. This company is lauded for manufacturing the world's first eco-friendly chlorine free PPS.
We learn about why this company decided to manufacture chlorine free PPS. We also learn about the differentiation of PPS made at this company and the existing PPS manufactured in other countries like Japan and the United States. We see how and where specialized chlorine free PPS can be used. Localization of advanced materials is on the rise due to Japan's export regulations. Let us see what some tasks at hand are for this leading company.
