01Extract

Toray utilizes naphtha procured from suppliers to make petrochemical products. Naphtha is isolated from crude oil through a heating process that takes advantage of the oil's various components' different evaporation temperatures.

* This step is not done in the Toray.

02Process

Toray subjects naphtha to various chemical reactions to isolate several different substances, which are then used as base materials for a variety of our products.

  • Catalyst(ISOLENE®)
  • p-Diethylbenzene
  • Terephthalic acid
  • Cyclohexene
  • Chlorocyclohexane
  • Ammonium Sulfate
  • ε-Caprolactam
  • m-Dichlorobenzene
  • m-Chlorotoluene
  • 2,6-Dichlorotoluene
Catalyst

Toray also makes catalysts for facilitating chemical reactions. These catalysts boost efficiency in the manufacturing of paraxylene (PX), a main component in polyester for fibers and PET bottles.
