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 Technical Center for the development of tire reinforcement (Steel Cord, Bead Wire) production techniques and products is strengthening its research capabilities as a research institute specializing in steel wire materials in Vietnam, China and Korea. Based on the technological capability accumulated so far, we are working to become a specialist in research into steel wire materials by developing wire for cutting wafers used in renewable energy (solar cells) and IT (semiconductors, LED). In May 2007, we opened a new technical center to strengthen our fundamental technologies and core competence. In addition, we opened technical centers in our major overseas production bases such as China and Vietnam to secure technologies required for achieving global excellence.
