・Excellent impact resistance and chemical resistance
・Sustainable polymer based on VESTAMID® Terra
DAIAMID® of Daicel-Evonik Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Mr. Tadashi Kanai) was adopted for CASIO’s (Headquarters: Tokyo, President: Mr. Kazuhiro Kashio) brand for outdoor enthusiasts "PRO TREK® PRW-61 (scheduled to be released in March 2022)". The PRW-61 is the first Casio watch to be made with biomass plastics.
DAIAMID® is partly based on VESTAMID TerraⓇ. The material has great impact resistance and chemical resistance as TROGAMIDⓇ and DAIAMIDⓇ that have adopted for G-SHOCK. As a result, DAIAMID® enables PRO TREK® to provide sophisticated sensor technology with high density mounting technology for devices. This feature provides great usability and functionality.
Original PRO TREK® concept is “You feel, enjoy and love nature”. New PRO TREK® PRW-61 follows the idea, and also has the same performance as conventional products. In addition, this time CASIO‘s development concept is using bio-based material for new PRO TREK® model. It means CASIO’s use of renewable material will contribute sustainability actions globally.
Daicel-Evonik will make further efforts in providing better high-performance and valuable development in order to respond to new lifestyles and meet the needs of our customers.
