The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation around the globe. As the demands for 5G communications chips and automotive chips continue to rise, a world-renowned semiconductor assembly and test company was struggling to meet demand. CHIMEI developed for the company a photoresist material with a 23% increase in sensitivity for semiconductor assembly, successfully helping the client boost their production capacity.
As the laptop keyboard market trended toward thinner keycaps, we worked proactively alongside our partners to break new ground and develop a new grade of PC resin for manufacturing thinner keycaps while maintaining impact strength and rigidity.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a ventilator-maker urgently needed a huge order of POLYLAC ABS. As global supply chains started to disintegrate, we coordinated the entire process to help save lives.
By lowering the water content in our NdBR synthetic rubber to an unparalleled <0.2%, we helped the world’s leading golf ball makers achieve a new peak in end-product performance.
A European chocolate maker sought ABS with <5 ppm acrylonitrile monomer residue for the toys in its products. We remain the only supplier able to consistently mass produce such high-quality ABS.
A cosmetic container OEM had to find a way to analyze and avoid visual defects in its end products, which arose in the form of flash lines in the plastic. We pioneered the process to track and assess the aesthetic quality of SAN, despite the inability to rely on data.
Taiwan-based Federal Tires faced a stark decision: heavily over-invest in new equipment, or fall behind the industry’s peak performance levels. At CHIMEI, we offered Federal a third option. By developing new synthetic rubbers that are easier for legacy machines to process, they can produce the same high performance tires as brand new equipment.
A leading TV-maker tasked us to find an alternative to the PMMA inside its screens, so it could achieve ultra-narrow bezels. By balancing the low water absorption of PS, and the high optical properties of PMMA, our new MS resin and light guide plate helped our customer achieve a world-first.
CHIMEI focuses on a market- and customer-oriented research and development approach that truly provides practical solutions to application challenges. R&D is the strong base to our Client-Side Innovation™ that helps customers to advance and progress.
