On current automobile industries, it is important to react "environment", "safety", "globalization".
Especially on environment, each countries set up strict environment regulations. So, many manufacturers try to develop Eco-Friendly Cars such as Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV) which have downsizing engines or idling stop device, Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), Electric Vehicle (EV), Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV), and so on. For above backgrounds, Sumitomo-riko contribute to the development of automobile industries by developing anti-vibration rubber for vehicle which meets needs, and putting them on the market.
In this section, I tell about the recent development trend of materials for anti-vibration rubber.
