Harima: A pine chemicals company
Over70years in the pine chemical industry
We use the power of chemistry to transform the natural rosin of pine trees into products that enrich people's lives.
Rosin, Fatty Acids,
Chemical resources extracted from pine trees include rosin, fatty acids and turpentine. They serve as raw materials for the manufacture of a wide array of products essential to our daily lives.
Harima's share in the world consumption of rosin:
Annually a total of approx. 1.2 million* tons of rosin is produced worldwide. (*Harima estimate)
Harima uses about 10% of this amount to manufacture its various products.
In-house procurement of raw materials:
About 60% of the rosin we use is procured from inside the Harima Group (Kakogawa Plant and several locations outisde Japan), which ensures stable supply of high quality materials.
A Renewable resource
Unlike petroleum, coal and other fossil resources that are finite in quantity, pine trees, the core resource for Harima, are replenished naturally in a cycle of 20-30 years.
