Elastomer Molding

It is a technology that realizes products that combine the elasticity of rubber and the plasticity of plastic.
It allows us to create new high value-added products, due to beauty and gentleness of elastomers.

Elastomers are revolutionary molding materials that combine the elasticity of rubber with the plasticity of plastics, overturning the conventional wisdom that "plastic is hard".

We in Furuya Industrial Co., Ltd. we are boldly challenging elastomer molding, which tends to be avoided since it is more difficult than plastic, and we are also developing new materials by utilizing our unique technology and know-how accumulated over many years.
We aim to create new high value-added products using elastomers that combine "beauty" and "gentleness".

Application example: Watch wrist band Bezel Camera connector cap Camera grip, etc.
