Engineering Plastics Business

FeatureGunze Engineering Plastics Division provides "Comfort Solutions for Life" with excellent quality products that meet customer needs.
Gunze manufactures and markets functional components used in photocopiers, printers, and other office equipment. These components have also been adopted for industrial manufacturing processes.
Our thin-walled PFA tubes for fuser rollers/belts and transfer belts have brought innovation to the office automation market, enabling excellent quality image printing. Designed to satisfy a wide range of customer requirements, our high-quality functional components for industrial applications help maintain the quality of products with stain-resistant properties.
Even with components that work behind the scenes, Gunze’s engineering plastics provide a “feeling of comfort.”

① PFA Tubes for Fuser Rollers/BeltsThese tubes protect roller and belt surfaces from heat and stain by leveraging the unique properties of fluoro resin.
② Transfer BeltThis photocopier component collects four color toners and transfers them onto paper. Our transfer belt features uniform quality, surface smoothness, and improved stability in electrical resistance.
