Company Description

   Seaguar® is the inventory and world leader in fluorocarbon and premium fishing line and leader material.  In 1966, Mr. Ishii, a Chemical Engineer employed in the researcher division of Kureha, Japan, and Mr. Yoshida, and avid angler working in the Patent Department of Kureha, Japan, noticed that the attributes of Fluorocarbon were ideally suited to fishing line. The men saw that Fluorocarbon is less absorbant than nylon monofilament, impervious to UV rays, high-density and nearly invisible underwater. They knew early on...Fluorocarbon would revolutionize fishing line! And so the two men applied for a patent, which was granted and registered in 1969.  Since then, Seaguar continues to develop and perfect the art of 100% Fluorocarbon Leader, Tippets and Main Line. 
     Kureha is a leading diversified chemical products manufacturer that has applied its technological development expertise to create numerous original products in fields including advanced products, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and packaging materials such as household wrapping film. Kureha operates with both a broad vision encompassing industry-wide issues and developments, and at the same time, utilizes its specialist expertise to develop cutting-edge products. Kureha's growth and development has come exclusively from producing innovative products that were developed in-house, rather than using outside technology.
