New Japan Chemical, a comprehensive oleo-chemical producer, manufactures a variety of high functional materials from natural animal and vegetable oils with the application of high-pressure reduction and selective hydrogenation technologies.
The RIKACID HH (HHPA) is an alicyclic acid anhydride which has excellent characteristics as a
polyester alkyd resin raw material or epoxy resin hardener. As it does not contain double bond in
molecular formula, it can be a raw material of resins with great weather resistance.
When it is used as a raw material of paints or artificial marble, it enhances electric insulation,
heat resistance, and chemical resistance. As it is also useful as an epoxy resin hardener which
can produce clear and colorless hardened materials, it is used in LED. It is also used as a raw
material of resist inks, pharmaceuticals, agricultural chemicals, etc. As it is excellent in
impregnating ability, it is used in molding or casting of FRP.
