Fine Chemical

As part of our business diversification strategy, we have established a new Fine Chemical division to produce Brominated Epoxy Oligomer Type of Flame Retardants under the brand “FLANON” in January 1996. It contributes to the Plastics Industries by adding fire resistant characteristics to various plastic resins.

In 2001, our Multi-Purpose Pilot Plant was built for Research & Development of New Flame Retardants Chemicals. This project was supported by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Republic of Singapore, under the Innovation Development Scheme Grant (IDS Scheme).

Capitalising on the vast experience gained from our research, development and production efforts, we have developed and commercialised more than ten Fine Chemical Products such as pharmaceutical intermediate and optoelectronics materials to meet the various requirements of worldwide customers.

In order to cope with the surge in demands and in having expertise in the manufacture of “niche” fine chemical products, we further established a Commercial Scale Plant. Once again, the Singapore Government funded our expansion through the “Investment Allowance” grant in recognition of our status as a unique manufacturer.
