  • Nanodiamonds
    Nanodiamonds

    Diamond particles having an average size of 4 ~ 5nm are generated by detonating mixed explosives in sealed conditions. Our detonation pilot facility began operations in 2014.
    Moreover,through the chemical purification and the disintegration treatment of the crude product obtained by detonation, we have succeeded in developing a water dispersion of single-digit nanodiamonds. Daicel is now developing various applications, taking advantage of these unique characteristics.

  • Temporary adhesive
    Temporary adhesive

    Our proprietary compounding technique has enabled adhesion and separation of this functional material.
    Because of its high adhesiveness in a wide range of temperatures and its ease of separation, it is being applied to semiconductor packaging process materials.

  • Equol (FlavoCel™)
    Equol (FlavoCel™)

    We produce Equol by the fermentation method based on our long-nurtured microbial biotechnology.
    Equol is an attention-getting material as a next-generation isoflavone with expected anti-aging efficacy.

  • High performance film
    High performance film

    Daicel has derived a variety of hard-coat films from its proprietary coating technologies and is disposed to developing products to customer requirements. Product lineups include anti-glare films that reduce the sparkling of high-definition displays, shatterproof films for capacitance touch panel backing that keep watermarks from forming, anti-newton ring films of ultra-long life for resistance touch panels, stylus films that improve writing performance to pencil-like quality, smooth contact films that fingers glide over, and high hardness films that stand up to scratching and other potential damage caused by everyday use.

  • CO-processed excipient for orally disintegrating tablets (GRANFILLER-D™)
    Co-processed excipient for orally disintegrating tablets (GRANFILLER-D™)

    GRANFILLER-D is a co-processed excipient used for manufacturing orally disintegrating tablets.
    This excipient, functionally designed by original composition and granulating conditions using multiple official excipients, has attained both sufficient tablet hardness and quick oral disintegration. Furthermore, its high dose capacity is expected to reduce tablet size, while its excellent water conductivity will realize faster disintegration than conventional technologies can.

  • Silver nano ink (Picosil™)
    Silver nano ink (Picosil™)

    Picosil is an electroconductive silver nano ink intended for direct drawing of bezel electrodes for touch panels, organic ELs and finger and bus electrodes for solar cells. It can be sintered quickly at low temperature, as low as 120℃. Its high-metal-loaded paste enables forming thick line, achieving low resistance with narrow line width.

  • Visible light responsive photocatalyst (CelMuse™)
    Visible light responsive photocatalyst (CelMuse™)

    While conventional photocatalysts are mostly of outdoor ultraviolet light responsive type, Daicel has succeeded in developing a visible light responsive catalyst that responds to fluorescent light and low-intensity indoor light, such as LEDs. It is used for a variety of purposes, including interior and coating materials and filters.
