KISCO Research and Development Institute
KISCO’s R&D Institute is pursuing challenges and developing technological innovations to create new colors and develop functional, fine chemicals.
Since its establishment in 1971, KISCO has been continuously developing new dyes and established the first dye research institute in Korea in 1980. This has enabled KISCO to grow to become a leader in dye and organic synthesis research.
Through steady investment in R&D and securing excellent talents, KISCO has achieved world-class research results in the textile dye sector. Based on organic synthesis technologies, which are a core competency, KISCO’s business has been expanded to include ink and fine chemicals, including photosensitive materials, display/semiconductor materials and materials for food and pharmaceuticals. All products are developed and produced at the highest quality.
KISCO’s Research and Development Institute is also working to develop and certify products that exclude environmentally regulated substances in accordance with recently strengthened environmental regulations.
KISCO Chemical Testing and Analysis Center
The KISCO Chemical Testing & Analysis Center is an internationally accredited testing laboratory.
KISCO is accredited by KOLAS to conduct chemical tests for:
- Color fastness to light, perspiration, laundering, water, sea water, chlorinated water
- Detection of azo colorants, chlorinated aromatics, chlorinated phenols, formaldehyde, extractable heavy-metals, allergenic dyestuffs, carcinogenic dyestuffs, pH, chromium(VI) in textiles and leathers
In addition, KISCO’s labs are equipped with various analytical equipment including NMR, ICP-MS, LC/MS, GC/MS, to conduct a wide range of chemical tests related to the performance and safety of dyes, inks, electronic materials, foods and pharmaceuticals.
