Nissin Chemical and Shin-Etsu MicroSi Enter U.S. Market With Vinyl Resins Used 
for Paints, Coatings, Inks and Adhesives 
High Quality, High Purity Vinyl Resins Are Manufactured in Japan;
Shin-Etsu MicroSi to Coordinate U.S. Sales and Distribution 
PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/13 --  Nissin Chemical of Japan
and Shin-Etsu MicroSi of Phoenix have teamed up to provide the U.S.
market with solution vinyl resins, a key component in the
manufacturing of paints, coatings, inks, adhesives and films. Both
companies are wholly owned subsidiaries of Shin-Etsu Chemical, the
world's largest supplier of semiconductor materials and silicones,
PVC resins, synthetic quartz glass and methylcellulose. 
Nissin Chemical will manufacture the resins in Japan and Shin-Etsu
MicroSi will fulfill sales, distribution and applications support in
the U.S. The two companies will supply a series of vinyl
chloride/vinyl acetate resins; copolymer, vinyl and acrylic
emulsions; and silicone/acrylic copolymer resins. The resins will
offer enhanced adhesivity and solubility and come in both
solvent-based and water-based solutions. Samples are now available
through Shin-Etsu MicroSi. 
Nissin Chemical of Takefu, Japan, is a major supplier of vinyl resins
and copolymers to the Asian and Indian markets.  
"Ever since Dow closed its U.S. operations for vinyl resins in 2009,"
said Shin-Etsu MicroSi President, Jim Edmonds, "we have believed the
market needed and could sustain another supplier. For the
applications that require high quality, high purity resins, these
Nissin products will offer a proven alternative to the vinyl resins
in the marketplace. And with Nissin's long history of precise
manufacturing, we believe this will be a profitable and sustainable
business model for years to come." 
Nissin Chemical Industry Co. Ltd. has been manufacturing the
functional resins since the early 1960s and can improve intrinsic
performance and characteristic functionality, like texture and other
properties. It was established in 1955 and acquired by Shin-Etsu in
1965. Nissin Chemical is ISO 9002 quality certified, ISO 14001
environmental certified and has obtained ISO 9001:2000 registration.
Shin-Etsu MicroSi has an established history of sales, distribution
and applications support, having served the semiconductor materials
market for over 25 years.
