Joinature Development History
Jilin Joinature Polymer Co.,Ltd. was founded in 2006 and listed in the New OTC Market (stock code 835017) in 2015. Located in Luyuan Economic Development Zone of Changchun, covers an area of 27103 m2. The registered capital is 89.029 million RMB. Our current annual capacity is 1000 ton of PEEK resin. It is a modern high-tech enterprise integrated in PEEK R&D, manufacture and marketing.
Joinature mainly adopts the method of high temperature nucleophilic substitution reaction for PEEK raw material preparation. With hydroquinone and 4,4′-Difluoro diphenylmethanone as the basic material, the high boiling inert solvent and our own R&D formulation of catalyst, the high performance PEEK resin is ultimately prepared by high-temperature polycondensation reaction.
Joinature polyetheretherketone (PEEK) resin is made into pure fine PEEK powder seires of different particle size by air current eddy pulverization process; into ultra-pure PEEK granules by column-type multilayer sieve ultramicro filtration; into various modified composite products by compounding and modifying with high temperature resistant structural material and electrical insulating material.
Achieving capacity up to 1000 tons (annually 300 production days calculated), which effectively guarantees quality stability and consistency, purity and color constancy of PEEK products.
There’re about 132 existing staff including 7 doctors, 16 masters and 32 bachelors, above 37% of which are technical ones. We have R&D team with more than 30 R&D technical personnel at an average of 36.5 years old, who has been long-term engaged in PEEK research work.
Since its establishment, Joinature has constantly been bringing in and fostering professional talents of high-end fields, while trainning excellent front-line industrial worker backbones. After years of PEEK research and practice, well cultivated and seasoned technical backbones in science research and practice formed a series of professional technical R&D teams that are devoted in resin synthesis, product compounding& modification, R&D of downstream finished sample workpieces, process guidance on site, after-sale technical services, and whole-course quality tracking.
The service years of our technical R&D team members are 3, or 5 or even more than 10 years. Whether they’re highly educated R&D professionals or excellent front-line industrial workers with rich experience in practical operation are all involved themselves in PEEK synthesis, the whole-course compounding and modification, and accumulate abundant experience in production operation skills, R&D and making technological process, customer guidance on site and after-sales services. Our comprehensive technical level of PEEK R&D, operation, consulting services stays in the forefront of international same industry, which provides solid and reliable technical supports for future R&D of new products and customer services. With rich practical experience more than 10 year in market development and customer connection, we could undertake on site operating guidance to customer production and provide overall technical services and the optimum solution for manufacture of PEEK products.
In 2011, Joinature realized PEEK industrialization, promoting the annual capacity of 1000 tons. For access to international market, Zhonyan obtained 7 most authoritative international certificates: 3 ones of U.S. FDA to certify if the new material is toxic or harmful for food and drug industry; U.S. UL, a safety sign for our products to enter into American market; The others are EU REACH Pre-registration and ROHS Directive. Thereinto, EU REACH Pre-registration, as safety sign to enter into EU, is the regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals; EU ROHS Ditective, the mandatory standard enacted by EU legislation, is on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous material and process in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment.
There’re two series of our FD-PEEK products: pure resin and composites. Pure resin series include coarse powder(P), fine powder(PF), ultrapure granules(G). Composites include: carbon fibre reinforced granules (CA), glass fiber reinforced granules (GL), and friction & wear resistant granules(FC). Six series cover almost 60 specifications. According to flow from low to high, our products are divided into 770, 550 and 330 grades.
After years of R&D, and production tests, the current domestic market share of our polyether ether ketone (FD-PEEK) series of products is about 50%. Through the market practice, the products obtained high recognition in the process of user experiments. Zhongyan optimized synthesis process route, reduced the production cost and rapidly improved product quality to cater to brand-new and stable PEEK product market. The highlights and orientations of R&D, manufacture and marketing for FD-PEEK pure ultrafine powder and composites are: auto parts or accessories in automobile transportation sector; centralizers, high-strength seals, or air conditioning precision components in petroleum machinery sector; precision components for smart phones in electronic sector and low-end valves in machinery manufacturing sector, etc.
During the process of our R&D and production practice over the years, Zhongyan won the honors of such as Jilin High and New Technology Enterprise, Jilin Enterprise Technical Center as well as 2 international patents and 3 national patents through the untiring efforts of R&D technical team in the environment of initiative exploitation and innovative R&D. Zhongyan has got successful experience of polyetheretherketone production industrialization to ensure consistent high quality and stability of our products.
Our 1000 tonne FD-PEEK Industrialized Project has been passed science and technology achievement appraisal by China High-tech Industrialization Association in Apr. 27th, 2015.
Joinature series of PEEK products, high quality and keen price, not only promote the development of polyetheretherketone industry at home and abroad, also can promote healthy competition in special plastic industry. Joinature will vigorously develop the international market. So far, We’ve reached intention of cooperation with more than a hundred foreign companies, and have been experimenting to R&D new material products. It will make our products widely apply for automotive, electronic, medical and other sectors, meanwhile, break through the original application in domestic mechanical product area.
