Development of pioneering technologies that can provide optimized solutions
We always strive to further our capability to develop new technologies that will lead the global market.
Based on the R&D capabilities of Hyosung R&DB Labs created in 1971 as Korea's first research institute affiliated with a private enterprise, and the Steel Wire Technical Center founded in 1986, Hyosung Advanced Materials always conduct researches on textile, steel wire and composite materials to develop safer and more convenient products for the world and provide optimized solutions for users and customers.
Hyosung Advanced Materials' areas of research includes process and quality improvement for commercialized fiber products including fiber for tire reinforcement, technical yarn, carpet yarn, aramid and carbon fiber. As a leader in industrial textile ranging from aramid fiber commercialized using our own technology and the carbon fiber that was developed and commercialized first in Korea, we always endeavor to maintain the edge by developing new products and process that meet customers' needs.
Textile for Tire Reinforcements
The Steel Wire Research Center was founded to develop technology for the production of bead wires using steel cords and related products. The center is constantly expanding its research capacity as a research institute that specializes in steel wire materials in Vietnam, China, and Korea. The research center focuses on developing environment-friendly, next-generation tire reinforcements, ultra-fine wires, wafer-cutting wires, and steel wires made of special materials. In May 2007, the center was relocated to a new building to strengthen its fundamental technologies and core competencies further. Hyosung Advanced Materials has set up technical centers in major production bases including China and Vietnam to acquire the technology required to achieve global excellence in its hi-tech materials. These efforts are in keeping with Hyosung Advanced Materials's mantra of responding swiftly to the demands of global customers and boldly taking on new challenges so as to create a history of achievements.
