Product Summary

Metal coating applications

beverage cans

beverage cans
exterior paint

We have a diverse lineup, including clear varnish with retort resistance, matte varnish that enhances design, and high hardness varnish specialized in wear resistance. We can also make proposals tailored to your usage conditions, such as products that use new resins to reduce misting during painting and improve transportability.

interior paint

In addition to conventional epoxy products, we have established the quality of environmentally friendly BPA-NI paints. We can make proposals that meet customer needs, such as providing retort resistance similar to the outer surface, optimizing spray suitability by controlling fluidity, and customizing coating film hardness to provide high workability so that it can be applied to bottle cans. is.

Lid material

The inner surface paint for drums has maintained a high market share in Japan and has been adapted to various types of contents. As with pails and 5-gallon cans, our extensive database of contents has earned us trust.

special functionality

Outdoor unit/aluminum fin
Anti-corrosion, weather resistant

Utilizing the technology of can coatings it is used to prevent corrosion of metals, add design features through coloring, and has recently been used in vehicle license plates and building materials.

Adding water-based

Special water-based acrylic paints have a long track record as fin materials for heat exchangers such as outdoor units of air conditioners.

Scratch resistance

The coating film formation technology is utilized as a protective coating for metal surfaces used under harsh conditions. An example is a protective paint for steel straps.
