As a chemical company with a 50 year history, as well as a parent company of ISU Group, ISU Chemical is growing into a specialized global chemical company, proving excellent global competitiveness.

ISU Chemical has continuously grown, steadily producing various petrochemicals and other fine chemicals. From the manufacturing plant we have in Ulsan and Onsan, we are producing high-quality materials for various industries. Especially, we are the sole domestic producer of NP, a raw material used to make LAB, which in turn is used to make laundry detergent. Furthermore, we are recognized as one of the world’s top three producers of TDM, the self-developed high polymer synthetic resin regulator.

We demonstrate our outstanding capabilities in research and development by developing SS, TDM, IPA and NMP solely using our own technology. Also we are expanding a global production system while operating the production plant for LAB and MEK in China. We are aiming to become a world-wide recognized global specialty chemical company. To accomplish this goal, we plan to focus on gaining a new driving force to achieve growth, including the development of Sulfur Chemical and Bio Chemical products, and the launching a trading business etc., while reinforcing the market power of our existing main product lines.
