Leading the global textile processing industry

Textile Chemicals

NICCA Chemical began in 1941 with the development of surfactants for textile processing. Since our founding, we have manufactured and sold a wide range of textile processing agents from preparation (scouring, bleaching, relaxing), to dyeing (dyeing, soaping, fixing), and finishing (functioning)s, which are required for each process and material. We will lead not only Japanese but global textile industries by taking advantage of our strengths of total support for the whole textile process, while developing new technologies using ideas and expertise that are gained by communication with our customers.


Using our core technology, provide total support for textile processing and contribute to the development of the global textile industry.
