Shanghai Inabata Fine Chemical
Shanghai Inabata Fine Chemical Co., Ltd. is a consigned manufacturer of hardeners for the highest-quality urethane coatings, which boasts a production capacity of 12,000 tons - the largest in China.

Its clients are major international coating manufacturers and its main suppliers of raw materials are major isocyanate manufacturers.
