Our Three Core Technologies

Pigment synthesis and surface treatment

Centered on the color theory of chemical bonding, the technological field of pigment synthesis comprehensively draws on the knowledge of physical and surface chemistry.
Our technologies realize not only high dispersibility and color properties, which are indispensable in coloration, but they can also chemically treat pigment surfaces to add unique functionality. LCD color filter pigment is one product that makes use of this technology.

Formulation and dispersion processing

Stabilizing the dispersion of a pigment that does not dissolve in water or oil in a target material requires extensive know-how. We possess a wide range of dispersion and processing technologies that can be applied to virtually all solids and liquids.
We use these technologies for the production and development of functional materials by applying them to acquire attributes such as conduction, flame-resistance and strength, as well as coloration.

Polymer synthesis

This technology synthesizes plastic and rubber from organic chemical and naturally occurring substances. With products such as polyurethane, polyamide-imide, acrylics and natural polymers, it makes tailoring material designs with particular characteristics possible. Through this technology we carry out one-of-a-kind product development and manufacturing.

Functional Technology

Utilizing these core technologies in combination, we develop products that take advantage of the special qualities and features of the materials. We refer to this as "functional technology." It speeds up product development and allows a quick, fine-tuned response to customer and market needs.

Four Priority Target Areas and Products

Priority Target Areas Products
(1)Environment HPU Environmentally friendly hydroxyl polyurethane (HPU) are derived from carbon dioxide. From soft to hard, they are utilized in a variety of polyurethane films.
Water-based inks and adhesives Water-based inks and adhesives with solvents eliminated. Flexographic printing for film is one use.
Plant-derived TPU Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) utilizes a plant-derived urethane material. It has acquired the BP mark of the Japan Bioplastics Association.
Decorative film materials A film material used in lieu of paint with information terminal wrapping materials, vehicle interior materials, etc. It has less of an environmental impact than paint.
(2)Personal care Polymer particles Industrial powders made from polyurethane and acrylic polymers. Used in cosmetic applications.
Chitosan, collagen Natural polymers used in clothing and cosmetic.
(3)Energy CNT compounds Plastics with carbon nano-tubes (CNTs) that impart high elastic modulus, conductivity, heat resistance, and impact resistance.
Inorganic heat dissipation material A new inorganic filler with high thermal conductivity. Used in products like heat dissipation sheets.
Inorganic deodorizing catalyst We have developed an oxidation catalyst that is expected to realize a deodorizing effect through the combined use of ozone.
We are now preparing verified data.
Thermal barrier pigment Inorganic pigments that block solar heat. Used in paints for roofs, roads, etc.
