PP compounds are high-performance materials made by kneading fillers like synthetic rubber, glass fibers, or inorganic fillers into PP to improve such parameters as impact resistance or stiffness according to target applications, such as automobile bumpers, interior components, or casing for white goods appliances. Turkey is a major production base for exporting to Europe for many manufacturers of automobiles and white goods appliances. The demand for PP compounds in Turkey is expected to continue to grow solidly in the years to come.

Sumitomo Chemical will continue to work on further expanding its business through enhancing its global network of production and marketing of PP compounds to respond more speedily to customer needs.
