In addition to refrigerators and microwave, another essential appliances in the Korean kitchen is the rice cooker.
In cold seasons, you can't help but think about the freshly cooked, warm bowl of rice.
At the push of a button, you can enjoy a nice bowl when you want it or keep the leftovers warm.
It's become even more useful with added functions that cook a variety of dishes.
For the exterior of rice cookers, a highly-functional engineering plastic (EP) is mainly used
because it needs to withstand the high temperatures and pressures that are generated during cooking.
The processability must be also excellent because the design element is another key factor for household appliances.
LG Chem's LUPOL, a heat-resistant material that can express both gloss and color, is just the perfect material for it.
LUPOL is LG Chem's engineering plastic material, a PP-based functional composite resin that maintains the balance of overall physical properties with enhanced mechanical properties and heat resistance by adding an impact modifier.
