Collagen Business

At Kaneka, currently our Collagen division is working on the development and commercialization of a R
            regenerated collagen fiber.

Kanecaron Regenerated Collagen Fiber characteristics

A "soft, gentle feel" that is smooth to the touch, "antibacterial" properties that prevent the development or spreading of bacteria, "moisture control" that absorbs and releases humidity, "flame retardant" properties, and "odor control" properties for removal of odors. Kanecaron regenerated collagen fiber is a next-generation fiber created from five elements.
