“Manufacturing” with high originality cultivated by our core technologies

The R&D department of Nihon Matai is engaged in development activities to create new functions from existing material functions, by employing our core technologies and knowledge that we have developed over many years. The development center is equipped with small and large prototyping machines as well as evaluation equipment to meet all kinds of customer needs, by utilizing our core technologies, that is, thermoplastic resin extrusion, lamination, coating and printing technologies. We have also established a system that allows for reduction in development costs and speed-up of development. We also quickly respond to needs for new technologies and cutting-edge needs, while proactively considering the introduction of prototyping machines and evaluation equipment. We are engaged in “manufacturing” with high originality, with a focus on development, always staying one step ahead of other makers.

Examples of developed product

Radiation Shielding Sheet

Developed by Nihon Matai R&D Center in collaboration with Rengo Central Laboratory. We repeated demonstration tests in areas that still indicate high air radiation amounts and have applied for a patent.

Low Adsorption Barrier Sealant

High performance sealant film produced in a low particle atmosphere, having excellent water vapor barrier properties, chemical resistance, aroma retention properties, and low absorbability, unlike general-purpose PE sealant films.
