12 the TPE Technology Institute Open Seminar

This Seminar includes the following three topics; the novel functional materials and innovations, which will be presented by Prof. Yao from Fukuoka University. Mr. Hashimoto from ZEON will give a lecture on asymmetric triblock styrene copolymer with highly-elastic characteristics, and the introduction of the petrochemical industry in Saudi Arabia will be made by Mr. Suzuki. We look forward to having you join us!

Date: September 8,2017 13:00-19:00

Place: Royalblue hall, Tokyo Tech Front, Tokyo Institute of Technology Ookayama campus

Address: 2-12-1, Ookayama, Meguro, Tokyo 


Participation fee: Member and press Reporter free charge, non-member ¥10,000/person

12:30- Acceptance start

13:00-13:10 Greeting from the Chairman of NPO Research Association of Nano Structured Polymer

13:10-14:10 Title: Development of Novel Elastic Materials: Asymmetric Triblock Styrene Copolymer

Abstract: Certain ratio of asymmetric styrene copolymer and symmetric copolymer creates unique morphology. Asymmetric styrene block copolymer composition accomplishes highly-elastic and highly-modulus material.

Lecturer: Mr. Sadaharu Hashimoto, ZEON Co.

Bio: Sadaharu Hashimoto joined ZEON CORPORATION in 1999. He began working as a chemist in the C5 Chemicals division. He has spent his working life in SIS block copolymer development. Currently he is responsible for product development of SIS block copolymers and hydrocarbon resins to support markets as the R&D manager. Hashimoto earned his Master of Engineering in chemistry at Nihon University in 1999.

He received SPSJ Award for "Enhancing Performance of Elastic Film with the Development of Asymmetric Styrene blocked SIS in 2016"

14:25-15:25 Title: Novel functional materials and innovations utilizing the crystalline mechanism of polymers    

                - PE and PTFE surface modification function of ordinary polymer and material recycle-

Abstract: By using the crystalline mechanism of polymers, we had succeeded in developing novel functional polymer materials that can modify the surface properties of PE and PTFE. Also, we had found that the basic concept of the polymer crystal can work for the material recycle very well. I will introduce the functions and examples of applications.
