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.
Furthermore, we have developed new products such as insulation paints, sound insulation paints, and even tried to innovate into new fields as well. For the future, we have made it our goal to develop our business into a truly global brand.

Manufacturing concept for elution-suppressing ship bottom antifouling paint
・Through the development and dissemination of ship bottom paints that reduce the release of chemical substances compared to ordinary paints and minimize environmental impact and health hazards to shipbuilders, we intend to create a society where pollution of water sources and marine environments are prevented and ecosystems are safeguarded.
Manufacturing concept for water-based heat-insulation and sound-insulation paints for buildings
・We aim to realize a society in which CO2 emissions and the effects of climate change can be reduced through the development and dissemination of paints that improve energy efficiency when used to coat objects compared to ordinary paints.
・We aim to realize a society featuring clean water and air, in which hazardous substances are not released into the environment, through the development and dissemination of paints free of organic solvents to minimize environmental impact and health hazards to people who work with it.
