About Us

Message from the CEO

We are innovators creating value with dispersion technology

POLYCON has started a new phase as a wholly-owned subsidiary of EDOGAWA GOSEI CO., LTD. in July 2016.
Since our establishment in July 1998, we have been particular about our original dispersion process and machines based on our own philosophy, achieving both stable product characteristics and high usability.
The POLYCON products are used as the additives in inks or paints and perform functions in familiar environments. For example, gravure inks used in various packaging materials all over the world.
As required characteristics become more diversified, ink makers have found their manufacturing processes growing ever more complex.
Under such circumstances, our goal is to support the enhancing our customers' corporate value by not only improving the quality of their products, but also simplifying their manufacturing processes and reducing their inventory management burden through using our products.
We are committed to do our best as the innovator creating value with advanced dispersion technology. We very much look forward to working with you.
