On 14th of June 2017, “European Research Center” is newly set up in “Brightlands Chemelot Open Innovation Campus”.

In Europe, advanced automotive products tend to be introduced positively in the automobile market.  As a result, technological innovation is progressing even in the field of automatic driving vehicles. Also, in the construction industry, the needs of building materials with state-of-the-art design is very strong in Europe.

Therefore, Sekisui S-LEC has decided to strengthen cooperation and integration with industry, government and academia, especially in the Netherlands, an advanced innovation developed country. We established the European Research Center for the purpose of developing and disseminating the new high-performance interlayers from Europe to the world.
