    Anti-fouling bottom paint
    Our Non-tin less elution typed Nano antifouling bottom paint achieves high-effectiveness in reducing the adherence of sea organisms effectively without polluting the marine environment. A high barnacle resistance effect is also attained through the innovative long-term antifouling mechanism, which forms an ion- discharging barrier.

ABOUT US

OUR BUSINESS

We are engaged in product development for the future of the industry, which supports the marine environment and protects ships simultaneously. Our main product, Marine paint, innovates a new type paint, one which suppresses elution of paint into the ocean and maximizes antifouling performance. Accordingly, it has already been adopted by a large number of Japanese government and merchant ships.

For the future, we have made it our goal to develop our business into a truly global brand.
