World-class Products

W&C Compound
W&C Compound was selected as a “World-class Product” in 2004 by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of Korea. Hanwha Chemical developed it for the first time in Korea in 1985 and started commercial production. Since then, the company was the third worldwide to successfully produce 345kV XLPE cables.
EVA for Thermal Laminating Film
EVA for Thermal Laminating Film was selected as a “World-class Product” in 2009 by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of Korea. Hanwha’s EVA is a high value-added product that only a few companies in the world can produce with state-of-the-art technologies and equipment. EVA for Thermal Laminating Film, developed and produced by Hanwha Chemical for the first time in Korea thanks to its unrivalled technologies, is thinly coated on film materials such as PET and OPP to protect the materials and enhance heat adhesiveness and strength.
Solar Cell EVA
Hanwha Chemical and Hanwha Total Petrochemical’s solar cell EVA was selected as a “World-class Korean Product” by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of Korea, achieving the global No.1 market share. Hanwha Total Petrochemical enhanced its market leadership through quality innovation, succeeding in the world’s first solar cell EVA commercial production using tubular reactor polymerization.

Innovation in Materials

Automotive Materials
Since 1986 when it made inroads into the auto parts business, the company has been providing a variety of high-strength and lightweight composite materials such as GMT, LWRT, and EPP based on its technological prowess in this area. By establishing overseas branches and manufacturing plants in Alabama and Virginia in the US, Beijing and Shanghai in China, and in Czech, the company has raised its company awareness as a global auto parts manufacturer and supplier. In 2007, the company set up the global network, by acquiring Azdel, a US-based thermoplastic composite maker.
Electronics Materials
Since 2003 when it made inroads into the area of FCCL, a core material for mobile phones, the company has contributed to developing related technologies, as well as domestically producing products in that area. It has also significantly raised the competitiveness of the domestic electronics industry. In 2012, the company expanded its business area into the TSP by successfully developing and manufacturing ITO films, a core material for TSP.
Solar Materials
In 2010, the company succeeded in domestically manufacturing EVA sheets, which protect solar cells and thereby took a significant role in the solar energy business, the Group's strategic business. The company aims to expand its production capacity to 100,000 tons by 2020 with the goal of raising its standing among the global top three players.
