Develop competent ahead of market needs
with advanced technologies.

Based on the tribology technologies embodying the concept of "Slide," "Hold," and "Protect" we have learned advanced technologies ahead of the market needs and are developing original materials that suit friction characteristics.

Compounding material technology has been cultivated over many years of experience and achievements has been applied not only to plastics, but also to composite technologies that combine metals and fibers, and has created new competence through evaluation and analysis technologies that match the usage environment and performance required.

Superiority of STARLITE

  • Compounding material technology
    suitable to friction characteristics
  • Evaluation and analysis that match
    the performance requirements
  • Combination with hybrid materials

Supporting the world's key industries with advanced compounding material technology.

Thermosetting phenolic resin products manufactured by our proprietary material and molding technologies have been used in scratch resistant products for steel rolling mills and rudder bearings for ships for over 50 years. These products have been highly regarded by major Japanese steel manufacturers and shipbuilders.

Develop next-generation tribology technologies for a sustainable society.

The low-friction technology of S-Bear reduces environmental pollution and the use of environmentally hazardous substances through the diffusion of oil, thereby realizing a clean drive unit.The water dispersion technology for biologically oriented cellulose nanofiber adds new competence such as impact resistance.
ALPCOMBI has characteristics of fluoride, non-adhesiveness, water repellency, insulation, chemical resistance, sliding properties and also the strength and easy processing of metal plates. It eliminates sticking of production equipment, and so it contributes to improve productivity, and sustainable society by promoting maintenance-free operation.
