Furukawa's foaming technologies


As an electrical cable manufacturer, Furukawa Electric originally handled polyethylene as a sheathing material. At the time, foaming technologies for foamed polystyrene were developed, and the material was regarded as a dream material.

Combining the foaming technologies and cross-linking technologies, we developed the world’s first foamed polyethylene, which is a plastic that offers high mechanical rigidity and durability.

From that point, we continued launching unique foamed plastic products, including highly recyclable non-cross-linked PP foam and microscopic bubble foam, which was commercialized for the first time in the world.
