Building on the material processing and production technologies Daicel has refined over many years, we have developed basic products that function as the core of a variety of safety devices.
These devices produce a large quantity of gas in a short time by means of combustion. Through ceaseless research, we are developing high-performance, people-friendly, and eco-friendly gas generants.
Initiators are instantly activated with an electrical signal. Used in almost all the products our company handles, they are the source of instantaneous power that characterizes our pyrotechnic products.
We contribute to the security of Japan by providing aerospace & defense systems employing propellants, gunpowder and other pyrotechnic technologies.
Pilot Emergency-Escape System
This system enables pilots to escape aircraft in an emergency under any flying conditions. It incorporates an initiator to activate the system and pyrotechnics for releasing the aircraft canopy, propelling the ejector seat, and deploying a parachute to provide the pilots with a fast and safe escape.• Aerospace & Defense Systems Division, Sales & Marketing
We manufacture single-base gunpowders made from nitrocellulose, double-base gunpowders made from nitrocellulose and nitroglycerine, and triple-base gunpowders incorporating nitro guanidine. In Daicel’s aerospace & defense business, the gun propellant segment has the longest history. In recent years, We have focused on product development balancing safety and performance.• Aerospace & Defense Systems Division, Sales & Marketing
In addition to developing and manufacturing propellant for missile rocket motors, we design, develop, and produce motor cases of metals and composite materials.• Aerospace & Defense Systems Division, Sales & Marketing
Energy & the Environment
We recycle production materials in order to effectively utilize limited resources. Moreover,
by reducing the weight of auto parts such as inflators for airbags,
we are improving vehicle mileage while contributing to reduced CO2 emissions.
We safely process disused pyrotechnic products, collecting and reusing their useful resources.• Safety Systems Division, Sales & Marketing
The systems we manufacture increase the security of both producers and consumers by preventing disease among livestock and farmed fish.
Enhancing special events with light, sound, and smoke effects
These products are used for theatrical effects at theme and amusement parks.• Daicel Pyrotechnics Ltd.
