Fine Chemicals Business

Fine Chemicals Business

Our Fine Chemicals Business focuses on organic compound technologies. Its main business fields are eyeglass-related materials and pharmaceutical technical products and intermediates.

Plastic lens-related materials

Our major eyeglass-related products are photochromic materials. These materials are characterized by becoming colored when exposed to strong sunlight and becoming transparent when shielded from exposure. Their advanced properties, the ability to change colors between transparent and colored and to block ultraviolet rays, make them ideal for use in sunglasses.

Bulk pharmaceutical ingredients/intermediates

Bulk pharmaceuticals, otherwise known as active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), are technical-grade compounds synthesized specifically for use in the production of pharmaceuticals. Intermediates are organic chemical compounds used as intermediate materials in pharmaceuticals, paints, and dyes. We also concentrate our efforts on pharmaceutical technical products and intermediate operations, including contract manufacturing and providing API for generic drugs, which are being promoted by the Japanese government recently.
In the production of pharmaceutical technical products, Tokuyama follows Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines to manufacture products of the finest quality in accordance with the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law of Japan. GMP comprises structural facility standards for factories, as well as production management and quality control standards. At our Kashima Factory, we produce high-quality products based on facilities and management practices that are compliant with GMP standards.
