Research & Development
IT and other technological innovation are making progress rapidly today. On the other hand, the efficient utilization of natural resources to protect the global environment has become a theme of vital importance.
Believing since the foundation of Nippon Talc that the efficient use of talc will contribute to society, we have been focusing on research and development tailored to the users’ needs. One of our outstanding contribution is the development of NANO ACE.
We continue to focus our efforts on developing new products and achieve the best technical performance in order to satisfy the increasing market needs. Thus, we have the ability to offer a wide range of raw materials, sophisticated processing techniques and in-depth technical analysis.
In order to secure high-quality products, we have been using cutting-edge test equipment for a high-precision analysis at each stage, ranging from the acceptance inspection stage of raw materials to the process and final inspection stage of products.
We considers that the knowledge, skills, and attitude of each worker supported by permanent training are central to the value of our quality products.
As a member of society, we always check compliance with environmental safeguards and maintains an overall quality management system.
