      Company Overview

      We’re seeking to build a more prosperous future.
      • Chemistry for my life - Hanwha chemistry adds value to your everyday life.
      • 06:00 AMI wake up to the chilly morning air. My day starts early but full of energy. EVAEVA is an eco-friendly material with elasticity and softness which makes it ideal for sneaker soles. Its properties of transparency, flexibility and low-temperature sealability also make EVA an ideal material for laminating films and solar-module sheets.
      • 09:00 AMLike everyone else, I move among others, picking up my pace, as I make my way into the subway to go to work . CACaustic soda is essential in a wide range of industrial products including paper, textiles, detergents, metals, food and electrical generation. Chlorine is a natural co-product of caustic soda and is used to produce polycarbonates.
      • 02:00 PMA cup of coffee cheers me up in the middle of a hectic day. PEA polymer with outstanding physical properties and environmental stability, it is found in many different forms of plastic we use every day. Polyethylene coating applied to paper cups prevent leakage.
      • 06:00 PMTime to wrap up! Driving home, my hands tap lightly on the handle. TDIsTDI is a feedstock for PU resin and adhesives. Flexible foams are used in shoes, furniture, automotive components, bedding and toys. Semi-rigid foams are used in car interior materials.
      • 11:00 PMTime to rest up for a fresh start tomorrow. Survived another day, good job! PVCPVC has a wide range of residential applications such as wallpapers, flooring materials, window frames, cable sheathing, stationary and toys.


      Since our establishment in 1965, Hanwha Solutions Chemical Division has been at the forefront of Korea’s advancements in the chemical industry. Starting with Korea’s first production of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride), we began producing a full array of basic petrochemical products including LLDPE (Linear Low-Density Polyethylene), CA (Chlor-Alkali), ASR(Alkali Water Soluble Resin), and TDI(Toluene Diisocyanate), all of which has since served as base products across an wide range of industries. Our products exist in people’s daily lives in various forms and contribute to improving the overall quality of life.

      As both a leader and a chemical company in the petrochemical market, we are able to pursue sustainable growth creatively and competitively. We’re expanding our assets to include CPVC(Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride), hydrogenated resins and XDI(Xylylene diisocyanate)

      Business Statement
