Quality and Safety

1. Quality

"Soarnol™" is manufactured by the Mizushima Site in Okayama, Japan, Noltex L.L.C. in the state of Texas in the United States and Nippon Gohsei UK Ltd.
Each manufacturing plant has been certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for the manufacture of "Soarnol™", and produces high quality resin that meets advancing and diversifying user needs.

2. Safety

In terms of molecular structure, "Soarnol™" is composed primarily of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen, and when burned it emits primarily carbon dioxide and water vapor. It does not include harmful components that produce dioxins or other environmentally damaging substances.

Furthermore, its combustion heat is only half that of polyethylene, helping to reduce the burden on incinerators and provide increased service life.

As a result of these features, "Soarnol™" can be looked upon as environmentally friendly.
