Materials for the Future

Hanwha Advanced Materials has transformed itself into a “global high-tech materials maker” by concentrating its capacities on the material industry. In particular, the company has expanded its core business areas into composite materials for lightweight cars, electronics and solar energy, where it is able to compete effectively.

  • Automotive Materials Since 1986 when it made inroads into the auto parts business, the company has been providing a variety of high-strength and lightweight composite materials such as GMT, LWRT, and EPP based on its technological prowess in this area. By establishing overseas branches and manufacturing plants
    in Alabama and Virginia in the US, Beijing and Shanghai in China, and in Czech, the company has raised its company awareness as a global auto parts manufacturer and supplier. In 2007, the company set up the global network, by acquiring Azdel, a US-based thermoplastic composite maker.
  • Electronics Materials Since 2003 when it made inroads into the area
    of FCCL, a core material for mobile phones,
    the company has contributed to developing related technologies, as well as domestically producing products in that area. It has also significantly raised the competitiveness of the domestic electronics industry. In 2012, the company expanded its business area into the TSP by successfully developing and manufacturing ITO films, a core material for TSP.
  • Solar Materials In 2010, the company succeeded in domestically manufacturing EVA sheets, which protect solar cells and thereby took a significant role in the solar energy business, the Group’s strategic business. The company aims to expand its production capacity
    to 100,000 tons by 2020 with the goal of raising its standing among the global top three players.
