KG Polymer Compounds, a subsidiary of Kaolin Group, was founded in 2015 with the purpose of developing and manufacturing various industrial products. Whether it be plastic compounds, paints, thermoset resins, or geopolymers, we pride ourselves on finding solutions to industry-specific challenges.
Our comprehensive approach to plant setup, which covers everything from a state-of-the-art compounding line to a fully equipped laboratory to a dedicated R&D facility to various manufacturing bays, allows us to take ideas from inception to marketable product while keeping the whole process entirely in-house.
In the short time since our founding, we have already registered several patents for new products. Having fostered strategic partnerships with key industry players at both the national and the international level, we possess unique networking capabilities. This, in turn, enables us to realise the full-service commitment we offer.
