    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. The demand for urethane coatings is expected to further increase in China, such as for automobile top coats, automobile repairs, and plastics products. Its clients are major international coating manufacturers and its main suppliers of raw materials are major isocyanate manufacturers. The company is planning to expand its capability to custom process chemical agents other than hardeners for urethane coatings, as handling of dangerous materials becomes increasingly restricted in China. Shanghai Inabata Fine Chemical hopes to introduce its manufacturing technology around the world utilizing Inabata Group's global network.
