Glossary

Adhesive

In line with purpose and application, it can be selected from a permanent adhesion type, a removable type, or a re-applicable type.

Adhesive products for seal and labels

Plain adhesive paper / adhesive film before printing patterns, text, etc., or variable information such as barcodes. The lineup includes a paper base used for a wide range of applications and a film base with superior durability, water resistance, and design.

Automobile-use adhesive products

These include film for replacing paint in door sashes, film for protecting aluminum wheels on new cars, and decorative film for motorcycles, etc.

Biomass

Biomass is organic material derived from plants. By using biomass materials in facestock and adhesive for labelstock, environmental load can be reduced in terms of CO2 emissions and preserving fossil resources.

Carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes are cylindrical carbon materials measuring one nanometer (one billionth of a meter) in diameter. Lightweight, they are highly resistant to bending and stretching, and have high electrical and thermal conductivity.

Casting papers for carbon fiber composite materials

These release papers are used as a base sheet for manufacturing composite materials composed of a sheeted form of fine, hair-like carbon fibers fixed with resin.

Casting papers for synthetic leather

In the manufacturing process for synthetic leather, these release papers are used as patterns for adding designs and gloss to the leather surface.

Facestock

Broadly divided, there are two types — paper and film — and can be selected based on the application, usage environment, and required performance.

Films for outdoor signs and advertising

Adhesive film for signs installed outdoors, for body advertisements and decorations for trains and buses, and other applications.

Hot melt

Hot melt is a room temperature solid type of adhesive that is applied while being melted with heat. Environmental load can be reduced because dilution by organic solvents is not needed during application.

Industrial-use adhesive tapes

These industrial-use adhesive products include double-sided tape that is used for attachment and bonding of precision components of mobile devices, such as smartphones, as well as low-adhesive tape that is used for blanking and transportation of LCD components.

Interior finishing mounting films

This decorative film can achieve creation of diverse interior spaces through attachment to interior walls, etc. In addition to materials with various textures and colors, it also takes on original design decorations by digital output.

Labeling machines

Equipment used to automatically affix labels to objects, including models that incorporate printers for the printing of logistics addresses, barcodes, etc.

Multilayer ceramic capacitor-related tapes

This release film is used in forming hundreds of ultra-thin ceramic layers to configurate the interior structure of capacitors.

Optical display-related adhesive products

These include adhesive processed products on optically functional film used in LCD and OLED displays, and adhesive sheets used to adhere parts and materials in touch screens.

Release papers / films

In addition to the protection of the adhesive surface, these paper and film are used as a base during label manufacturing and processing.

Semiconductor-related adhesive tapes

This specialty adhesive tape is used in the semiconductor manufacturing back-end processes. It is used to protect the circuit surface when thinning semiconductor wafers through grinding, to secure wafers during dicing, etc.

Semiconductor-related equipment

These products, which are used in semiconductor manufacturing back–end processes, include equipment for laminating/removing semiconductor–related adhesive tape and for UV irradiation of tape to control adhesion of the tape.

Specialty papers

Paper used in special applications with a variety of colors, textures, and functions, etc. It includes the color paper for envelopes and colored construction paper as well as the paper used in laundry tags, which has tear-resistance even when soaked with water, and oil- and water-resistant paper used in food packaging.

Window films

This adhesive film is applied to window glass in buildings, automobiles, etc. It has various effects such as improving air-conditioning efficiency in rooms and vehicles, shielding ultraviolet rays, and reducing the scattering of splinters when glass is broken.
