Coating

Based on the know-how accumulated through the distribution of paint/ink materials, the Coating Materials Division is working toward promoting proposal-based sales of ecology-conscious, energy-saving-aware functional coating materials.
In addition, utilizing the Moriroku Group's overseas networks, this division provides the best solution to customer problems with business deployment.

Lines of Business

Resins
Amino, acrylic, alkyd, silicone, epoxy, water-soluble, UV curable, etc.
Resin materials
Polyalcohols, organic acids, special monomers, etc.
Pigments
Antirust pigments, titanium oxide, organic/inorganic pigments
Additives
Functional additives, delustering agents (W.R. Grace), antifouling agents, polymeric initiators

Trend Themes

The Coating Materials Division is addressing the following problems while at the same time being conscious of the environment and energy saving.

Low-temperature curing

In the fields of automobile and industrial coatings, baking is conducted under high temperature, thereby consuming large quantities of energy and generating large amounts of carbon dioxide.
Responding to the recent trend in reducing carbon dioxide emissions, low-temperature cure coatings, which consume less fuel, are now attracting attention. To meet this need, the Coating Materials Division is proposing the use of new types of curing systems such as urethane cure coatings.

Anticlouding

If small drops of water are attached to the surface of glass, a mirror or the like, it would exhibit a diffuse reflection, with the incident light being reflected in all directions. This condition is generally referred to as clouding.
Clouding can be eliminated by using an anticlouding agent which turns small drops of water into a water film by taking advantage of its hydrophilic property. This division proposes the use of anticlouding agents which, when applied to the surface of a film or sheet, will improve its anticloud property.

Thermal insulation

In the global efforts to combat global warming, thermal barrier coatings are now attracting particular attention as an effective means of preventing the rise in indoor temperature without using electric power.
A thermal barrier coating employs a special pigment that reflects infrared light, which tends to transform into heat most easily among all the rays emitted by the Sun, its shipping volume having increased from about 1500 tons in 2004 to 6700 tons (more than four times the former) in 2009. The Coating Materials Division is proposing the use of such special pigments and various other functional materials.

VOC reduction

The Coating Materials Division is intent on reducing hazardous chemical substances and recycling waste products in an effort to achieve VOC reduction.
