CRYSTAL PROCESS CO., LTD.

We develop and manufacture chemical products that are highly appreciated in Japan and abroad.

Our mainline products are coating agents. The gloss and water repellency of our products are highly appreciated. They have been adopted by automobile manufacturers in Europe and Japan, as well as an overseas car care manufacturer that has branches in 34 countries around the world. Our unique silicone oligomer technology produces excellent adhesiveness to base materials. The films themselves have inorganic properties. Major home electronics appliance manufacturers are also considering adopting our products as LED and electrical circuit sealing agents. This is because of their excellent thermal insulation (protecting base materials for nearly five years even under an open-air environment), electrical insulation, and transparency.

[Company strength]
Our company has researchers who are well versed in inorganic synthesis chemistry, organic synthesis chemistry, and molecular structure analysis. They conduct testing (exposure testing) more than one hundred times a year with the cooperation of each automobile dealer. We provide practical products based on a wealth of feedback data. We excel at micro- and nano-engineering using an electron microscope. Our company manufactures compounds mixed with 0.1 μm abrasive particles, which is at the smallest level in the industry. We are conducting research on a nanometer-order film forming method. We are focused on developing a super-water-repellent film forming agent for a contact angle of about 150 degrees. We are also concentrating on a super-hydrophilic film forming agent for a contact angle of 10 degrees or less.

[Business description]
Our company conducts chemical R&D and manufactures a wide range of chemical products, including car washing agents, car waxes, glass coating agents, and ultra-fine particle abrasives. Our main customers are automobile dealers and sheet metal coating companies. Exports have grown for the past five years, mainly to countries in Asia and Europe, and now account for 40% of our sales. Our company has an integrated system from research to manufacturing, and we can satisfy customer and market needs in detail. We also undertake OEM manufacturing of official products for automobile manufacturers.

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our main product is a glass coating agent with a hybrid structure in which the side chain is given a single organofunctional group by using three-function silicone. This is why our agent has inorganic properties but strongly adheres to organic substances. The formed films have an effect of protecting the base materials for nearly five years even under an open-air environment. The effective content of glass is as high as 85%, and non-burnable, highly transparent films are formed. Large (2 to 3 μm) particles softer than the coating surface are mixed with hard small particles (0.5 μm) for compounds. This is done to produce the effect of multiple compounds in a single operation.

[Representative's message]
We will continue to take on R&D by making the utmost use of coating with three-function silicone and nanotechnology coating with fine particles. Our goal is for domestic Japanese and overseas customers to remember our company when they think of automotive chemicals. Our company developed a super-water-repellent, hydrophilic coating by applying three-function silicone. We aim to create products with this kind of coating for building maintenance, window displays, and other appearance protection articles to contribute to people in Japan and throughout the world.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our sales department and engineering department work together when dealing with new domestic Japanese customers, and our representative personally gives direction so as to take quick, sincere action. Our company has an overseas division to handle overseas transactions. We can do a wide range of work under our in-house system. This includes negotiations in English, overseas business trips, participating in overseas exhibitions, creating websites for overseas sales, and creating necessary documents for overseas trade.

[Market share/Ranking]
Many conventional hydrophilic agents have poor weather and water resistance performance, and cannot form coating films that are sustainable even outdoors. This is because they use hydrophilic organic polymers. Our hydrophilic coating agents are based on our unique technology that effectively combines the advantages of sustainable inorganic components and hydrophilic organic components.
