SoarnoL™ (EVOH)

Packaging Material for Preserving Flavour and Freshness.

Ancient wisdom for modern times

Since ancient times people have devised various techniques to preserve freshness and flavour to maintain the natural taste in foods, "wrapping" is one of those techniques. In ancient Japan, bamboo leaves and bark were commonly used to wrap foods. The invention of cans and bottles in the mid-19th century significantly prolonged food life. Today, SoarnoL™ (EVOH) offers innovative food-packaging technology by shutting out oxygen to prevent decomposition and the growth of mold, while maintaining transparency.

What is SoarnoL™ (EVOH)?

SoarnoL™ (EVOH), is a trade name of Ethylene-Vinyl Alcohol Copolymer (EVOH) originally developed by NIPPON GOHSEI through years of research. SoarnoL™ (EVOH) is mainly composed of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, has no toxic gases when burned, and its combustion heat is only half that of polyethylene, causing little harm to the environment.

Hi-Selon™: Water-Soluble Film

Water-soluble plastic films developed by a specialist in chemical materials.

Hi-Selon™ is a water-soluble plastic film made from Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH or PVA). It is biodegradable and free from halogens such as chlorine. When disposed of, thanks to its chemical composition, Hi-Selon is broken down into harmless components resulting in much less impact on the environment than ordinary plastic films.

This innovative plastic film can enhance safety and convenience in several working environments, from detergents for laundry and dishwash (ADW) capsules and tablets, agricultural chemicals, medical services and water pressure transfer printing.

What is Nichigo G-Tape™?

Nichigo G-Tape™ is an innovative pressure-sensitive tape which is hand tearable and leaves little or no residue on the surface. Nichigo G-Tape™ can even be removed from itself and reused unlike standard duct tapes. Nichigo G-Tape™ does not leave any residue on hands unlike conventional butyl tape in the construction market.

Made from a polyethylene based flat yarn substrate, Nichigo G-Tape™ boasts a higher tensile strength and dimensional stability than conventional gaffer tapes or duct tapes. At the manufacturing facility in Japan, we have excellent in-house design and production of solvent acrylic PSA and can offer a wide range of adhesive strengths for our customers, from removable to permanent depending on the application's requirements. In addition, we can also supply special double-sided tapes which can be easily cut by hand. Typical applications for our tapes include surface or floor protection and paint masking for automotive, marine, rolling stocks, aviation, entertainment and construction Industries.

Depending on our customer's demands, we can also offer bespoke PSA tapes with excellent removability or permanent adhesion properties.
