Otsuka Chemical America, Inc.
Stand - A210
Otsuka Chemical America specialises in a series of compounds: Poticon, which uses Otsuka chemical’s ultrafine
potassium titanate fibre, Tismo. Poticon is used in a wide variety of applications including micro reinforcement
for demanding automotive friction and sliding parts, as well as LED reflectors and camera modules.
The Poticon series features a potassium titanate micro-filler compounded in thermoplastic resins
to provide outstanding micro-reinforcement and dimensional stability. The excellent surface smoothness of
these compounds limits friction toward opposing materials, reducing wear and allowing for greaseless applications.
Moreover, Poticon diminishes damage toward the mould and metal die and offers excellent recyclability, and thus
decreases production costs. Advantages of Poticon include microscopic reinforcement, plus superior friction sliding
and wear reduction.
