A technology of making paper by mixing various powders into Washi raw materials. They can be non-organic powders such as alumina and talc, metal foil or organic such as tea leaves. It is possible to produce special paper with functionality and design.
【 Product examples 】
Base paper for oil blotting paper, base paper for non-slip paper, base paper for various filters, base paper for upcycled paper, etc.
A technology of dividing raw material into two layers to make paper, then pasting together into one sheet before drying. This can prevent holes upon production process. Also, it is possible to create paper with different characteristics on the front and back by changing the raw materials for each layer.
【 Product examples 】
Base paper for food wrapping paper, base paper for art wrapping paper, etc.
The papermaking technology that creates strength while being ultra-thin inherits the tradition of Mino Washi. It is widely used for paper threads, separators, supports, etc. Stable mass production quality can be achieved with machine papermaking.
【 Product examples 】
Base paper for paper thread and paper cord, base paper for inner wrap, base paper for art printing, etc.
A technique to impregnate and apply water-based resins and chemicals to Washi paper. We have expertise in the selection and blending of raw materials and processing methods according to the purpose.
【 Product examples 】
Base paper for masking tapes, base paper for double-sided tapes, base paper for medical tapes, base paper for overlay paper, base paper for separators, etc.
These are only examples. With our Washi paper manufacturing technologies,
we can create such "special paper"
Many types of masking tape and sealing tape utilize base paper that benefits from the characteristics of traditional Japanese paper. Our products can satisfy customers who demand high quality for painting, packaging, medicine, electronic components, and more.
This is a low-density base paper that is uniform with no protrusions, allowing the adhesive agent to penetrate to the center of the paper. This is the one of our main products, and our paper-making technology has been developed over many years.
The moderate strength and flexibility of traditional Japanese paper allows it to be used for electrical and electronic components. For example, the paper spacer in aluminum electrolytic capacitors is mainly Manila hemp. It is special paper that prevents the mixing of electrochemically harmful substances, such as chlorine and iron particles, while performing its primary roles of preventing short circuits and retaining electrolytes.
This type of paper is used for housing and construction materials, including flooring materials, doors, and system kitchens. There are many variations including overlay paper for melamine veneers that is highly transparent and contains no shives or dust.
Using the gold leaf paper-making method, we create high-density paper with smooth fibers that is surprisingly effective at absorbing facial oil from the face.
Paper threads made from traditional Japanese paper mainly using Manila hemp come in a range of thicknesses and offer weather resistance needed for various types of clothing. They are used in a wide variety of fabrics, both knitted and woven.
This paper offers the high degree of safety needed for medical applications. Such as tape for gauze and intravenous drips.
This base paper for old-fashioned adhesive therapeutic pads. It is soft to touch and offers the distinctive soft texture of traditional Japanese paper.
This product is the base paper for ham, which requires high heat seal ability, and for paper cooking pots, which need high heat resistance.
This product is for wrapping Japanese confections and for everyday products carefully such wrapping paper benefits from the texture of traditional Japanese paper.
This paper has an anti-slip resin with zero adhesiveness on one or both sides, for a variety of anti-slip applications.
This thin, tough, soft textured base paper is made from select natural fibers. It is for storing and transporting works of art, antiques, and other precious objects.
At Daifuku Paper, dedicated engineers work together with the Sales and Manufacturing Departments to develop special paper that supports industry and daily life. We have research lab facilities on the premises, so we can implement trial production of original products and performance evaluation tests based on customers’ requests. We review the results and make improvement proposals that use our experience and expertise to realize your requests.
We address our customer’s needs, from providing base paper to processing and finishing. To start the process, please contact us by email or by phone.
Our sales personnel will interview the customer to ask about their required application, functionality, budget, delivery schedule, and so on. (This can also be done through online videoconference or by teleconference.) Our R＆D personnel could join on these discussions.
Based on the customer interview, we provide an initial estimate. Providing an estimate is free of charge.
Our sales, R&D, and production departments collaborate to consider which materials, mixing ratio, and paper-making conditions will meet the customer’s needs. Samples are then made using a test machine.
After the customer has evaluated the samples, we create a prototype using the production machinery. Our departments collaborate on any issues that occur during actual production in order to investigate and fix them, and then we finalize the specifications.
After finishing the processes described above, we finally proceed with mass production. We also take responsibility for conducting follow-up after delivery.
