Specialty Colors Division
Providing an extensive range of useful colorants
We develop, produce, and sell colorants for an array of industries through the application of dispersion and processing technology pioneered with the appearance of synthetic fibers. Primarily we supply the market with products like mass colorants for synthetic fibers*1, pigmented printing agents and colorants for paper and construction materials. We have also expanded into the information display and recording materials*2 field.
- *1 Mass-coloring agents apply color to resins prior to spinning, after which pigmented printing agents are used when making prints on the resulting cloth.
- *2 Materials used for LCD color filters, MFP (Multifunctional Printer) toners, inkjet printer inks, etc.
Features and advantages
- By utilizing fine dispersion technology*3 that disperses pigments at the Nano-level, as well as combining and mixing technologies that we have developed over many years, we create products with a variety of features, colors and properties. We conduct product development and establish production and sales structures that answer our customers' needs, and so have acquired a high market share in a wide range of fields.
- *3 A single thread of fiber is extremely fine, and even finer uniformity is required for the application of pigments for mass-coloring agents. Fine dispersion technology is a development of that technology to control the size of the pigments.
