HOME>Research and Development

The Tateyama Kagaku Group, led by R&D division of Tateyama Kagaku and Business promotion department of Tateyama Machine, aims to establish the "Only One technology" for the next generation by integrating the core technologies of each group company.

R&D division is engaged in replenishing basic technologies from a medium-term to long-term perspective and serves as the R&D base for all group companies.

Nano materials and new businesses are researched and developed in Business promotion department.

Our mission is to further deepen the technologies that each group company is working on, or to take on the challenge of developing technologies in new fields that have never been handled before, identify a roadmap to practical application, and then break them down to each group company.

We have been conducting research and development in collaboration with universities and public research institutions, and the results are steadily improving.

We are working on the practical application of nanotechnology-based production technologies for metal nanocolloids and carbon nanotubes, the development of new sensor elements, precision processing, design simulation, communications and networks, medicine and biotechnology, and a wide range of forward-looking themes such as the recently discussed new energy field.

LED-compatible phosphorescent material “Kyokko”

Overview The world's first LED-compatible phosphorescent material developed in collaboration with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST)
  • While ordinary phosphorescent materials emit light only in response to ultraviolet light, Kyokko absorbs both ultraviolet and visible blue LED light and emits light.
  • Fluorescent materials emit light only when exposed to light, while phosphorescent materials continue to emit light even after light is cut off.
  • Phosphorescent material is a type of ceramics.
  • Custom-made paints adapted to the object to be painted
  • Phosphorescent sheet conforming to JIS standard
  • Molded resin products
  • Disaster Reduction Products

Nanocomposite materials

  • Powder materials with metal nanoparticles supported on a carrier
  • Wide material selectivity for both particles and carriers
  • Catalysts, sensors, optical lenses

Metal nanocolloid

Overview Liquid-like material with metal nanoparticles dispersed in organic solvent
  • Co, Ni, Fe, which are difficult to manufacture, are available
  • Ultra-small particles of 5 nm
  • Stable dispersion in non-polar solvents
Application Catalysts, sensors, optical lenses

Energy system

Overview We are developing energy systems for the future.
  • Systems to expand the use of renewable energy
  • Electric power supply systems to enhance BCP (Business Continuity Plan) support
  • Locally produced and locally consumed energy systems that take advantage of regional characteristics
  • Utilization of graduated FIT power sources whose purchase period has ended (FIT: Feed-in Tariff)
  • Introduction of renewable energy
  • EMS(Energy Management System)
  • Self-Sustaining Decentralized Microgrids
