Colorants for FEP / ETFE / PFA

Our “FCM Series” can solve the following problems with coloring of fluoropolymer.

  1. 1Foreign matters caused by insufficient pigment dispersion
  2. 2Degradation of resin properties caused by colorants
  3. 3Unstable coloring
  4. 4Incompatibility with processing conditions
  5. 5Time-consuming preparation / surplus stocks of special colors

An extensive product lineup that gives both high quality and superior performance

1An advanced pigment dispersion suitable for ultra-thin layer

It is desirable that colorants for fluoropolymer covering materials of electric wire give superior color identification properties and hiding power by addition in a smaller amount.

Our “FCM” masterbatch using our advanced pigment dispersion technology enables customers to realize these properties and then produce electric wire with ultra-thin layer.

2Design with optimal selection of pigments and formulation suitable for fluoropolymer

Proper formulation design using carefully selected materials is performed without damaging characteristics of fluoropolymer.

In particular, pigments having processing stability under a high temperature are selected.

3Diverse product lineup

Our “FCM Series” offers a variety of choices from full lineup according to application and types of fluoropolymer, including FEP, ETFE, and PFA, as well as a total solution including color choice based on customer requirements.

Mini-pellet

4Mini-pellet suitable for ultra-fine electric wire

Our “FCM” mini-pellet whose size is smaller compared with our standard products, is developed for ultra-fine electric wire with ultra-thin layer, and it is possible to provide a steady supply.

5Design of a special color

Our extensive product lineup is capable of satisfying customer demands at a high level, and design of a special color is also available on request.

A history of product development

Over 90 years since its establishment, we have refined our own technologies by continuing to fulfill customer needs.

1931
Our company was established aiming for domestic production of pigments that were reliant on imports from Europe and America.
1948
We began developing plastic colorants using our pigment dispersion technology, and entered the plastic colorant business.

In 1948, we developed and launched masterbatches for soft PVC ahead of the competition, that contain plasticizer with finely dispersed pigment.

Next, we developed and launched other colorants, including, for example, masterbatches for synthetic fibers requiring finely dispersed pigment particles. Meanwhile, we provided optimal colorants for rigid PVC, polyethylene and so on, according to changes in demand for plastics and expansion of applications.

1950’s
We began providing colorants for PVC covering materials of electric wire.

In the 1950’s, we began providing colorants for covering materials of electric wire and wire harness. Since then, we strived to respond to any technical and service requirements from numerous Japanese domestic companies through our original technologies. As a result, our products have been continued to be adopted and we have grown to become a leading supplier of colorants for PVC covering materials of electric wire in Japan.

1968
We began providing masterbatches for fluoropolymer covering materials of electric wire.

Reflecting our successful track record in the field of PVC electric wire, we continued with development of colorants applicable to fluoropolymer covering materials of electric wire through our original technologies in respond to customer requests.

As a result of development of optimized colorants for processing conditions peculiar to fluoropolymer and also for ultra-fine electric wire, our products have been continued to be adopted by numerous Japanese domestic companies, and we are Japan’s top supplier of fluoropolymer covering materials of electric wire at the moment.

We will continue to utilize our expertise and know-how accumulated over many years to meet customer needs.

A sense of security
We are familiar with physical properties related to pigments as an experienced pigment manufacturer. Therefore, we can produce various colorants with stable quality and provide customers with a sense of security.
Achievement
We have continued to provide our masterbatches to Japanese manufacturers having a significant share in the market of fluoropolymer electric wire, where specialty products are widely used.
Therefore, we can immediately propose and provide an optimum solution to coloring problems, based on our expertise and know-how accumulated in the market.
Services
In addition to selling our standard products including masterbatches and compounds, we can also respond to customer requirements such as specification changes.
