Kuraray Co. Ltd has decided to increase the production capacity of its extruded methacrylic resin sheet by 5,000 tons per annum to 28,600 tons. Extruded methacrylic resin sheet is widely used both in Japan and overseas markets for LCDs used in PCs and other computer monitors, as well as rear-projection TV receivers.

The company derives a wide variety of products from methyl methacrylate (MMA) monomer, the raw material of methacrylic resin sheet, methacrylic resin for molding products and synthetic marble. Kuraray's extruded methacrylic resin sheet is renowned for the precision of its thickness control. The company said it has developed a wide range of special applications for these materials, including optical materials, for molded signs, displays, various fixtures, and light fittings.
