PLASTRADE's Research & Development ("R & D") is presently focusing primarily on the following :

a. development of new resin compounds to cater for the changing customer's demands and Government's regulations in the wire, cable and automotive components industries

b. continuous improvement of its existing products to meet or even exceed international standards; and

c. the formulation and development of various intermediate products such as masterbatches, polymer processing aids, stabilizers and polymer additives.

Our technical collaboration with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia ("UTM") enables us to expand our R & D activities by gaining access to equipment and expertise. This collaboration therefore enables PLASTRADE to achieve better results in R & D and garner further confidence in the quality of our products.
