About Us

R&D Areas

Platform technology aims at developing and enriching core technologies for cable materials while also enhancing product quality and reliability. We are conducting R&D on core technologies in the cable industry, such as compounding, prescription and processing technologies, selection and development of alloyed materials, and cable processing technologies and reliability. Furthermore, we have established a fundamental cable technology innovation platform (conductor design, extreme fire resistance, and masking technology), and have become a certificate authority for eco-friendly parts and products (KOLAS, UL, TÜV).

Platform Technology
Issue Definition Research Area Core Tech
