Otsuka Chemical America is the US division of Otsuka Chemical Co., Ltd and is committed to building trust and providing new value to our planet through superior products, services, and innovative technology.

Otsuka Chemical America specializes in a series of compounds, POTICON, which uses Otsuka Chemical’s ultrafine potassium titanate fiber, TISMO.  POTICON is used in a wide variety of applications including micro reinforcement for demanding automotive friction and sliding parts, as well as LED reflectors and camera modules.  Otsuka Chemical America offers numerous grades of this material to provide different benefits to satisfy our customers’ thermoplastic needs.

The POTICON series features a potassium titanate micro-filler compounded in thermoplastic resins to provide outstanding micro-reinforcement and dimensional stability.  The excellent surface smoothness of these compounds limits friction toward opposing materials, reducing wear and allowing for greaseless applications.  Moreover, POTICON diminishes damage toward the mold and metal die and offers excellent recyclability, and thus decreases production costs.

Advantages of POTICON

  1. Microscopic reinforcement
  2. Superior friction sliding and wear reduction
  3. Excellent dimensional accuracy and surface smoothness
  4. Highly recyclable
