Group Company:
  • Mytex Polymers

Founded in 1987, MYTEX Polymers compounds high-performance engineered polyolefin materials for a wide variety of applications. As a custom compounder, MYTEX Polymers utilizes only the most advanced equipment, processes and people to create products to meet demanding specifications. We develop, test and manufacture polymer solutions that are used in everything from automotive parts (both exterior and interior) to household appliances; from recreational vehicles and industrial equipment to specialty packaging.

With the acquisition of Comusa in 2018, MYTEX Polymers became the global manufacturer of FUNCSTER™ pultruded, long glass reinforced injection molding grade Polypropylene. FUNCSTER™ LFGPP has long been known for its high quality and glass dispersion, making it ideal for usage in structural applications, either under the hood or when used in conjunction with other material such as PP.​​

Leveraging resources, technology and innovation, Mytex Polymers US Corp and Comusa, Inc. merged in 2018. The expanded product offering gives customers a one-stop shop for polyolefins as well as unprecedented services. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Chemical Company, we have something most of our competitors can only dream of – access to the expertise, research & development support and resources of one of the world’s largest and most successful chemical companies. With a strong record of proven performance, our company sets the standard for quality, innovation, consistency and cost-efficiency.​
