SHIKOKU CHEMICALS CORPORATION Group continues to make efforts for environmental protection and manufactures products contributing the global environment and living environment, health and safety in the aspect of product development.
NEO-CHLOR is a high quality chlorinated isocyanurates-based disinfectant/sanitizer produced with our creative technology and widely used for sustaining a range of water environments from a swimming pools and wastewater to home sanitary products, contributing to healthy and safe living through keeping water clean.
In bathing facilities such as hot spring and public bathhouses, it is important to always keep the water in the baths clean. Even though it looks clean at a glance, hot water is not clean enough after merely removing floating matter, if used cyclically. SPACLEAN is a chlorinated isocyanurates-based chlorine agent dedicated for bathwater to create a comfortable bathwater environment. We also provide SPACLEAN BROM 60T for hot spring containing alkali and the Legio Hunter mini tablets for medium-scale and small-scale baths such as social welfare facilities.
High-density surface mounting of parts using lead-free solder is the dominant technique for the printed circuit boards used in the electronic appliances such as PCs and smartphones from the viewpoint of protecting the global environment. Glicoat-SMD is a heat-resistant water-soluble preflux which is able to provide good solderability demanded by customers even for lead-free solder which cannot be easily soldered. Glicoat-SMD is people- and environmentally-friendly product because it contains no organic solvent.
Ohdelight is the system that reduces excess sludge generated in the wastewater treatment using the activated sludge method. This is the simple system consisting of a dissolver and a dedicated chemical agent, needs no expensive initial investment, and can be additionally installed in the wastewater treatment facilities such as rural community sewerages and food plants. The system was selected as the technology for the "Environmental Technology Verification Project" in 2011 which is the environment technology verification system established by the Ministry of the Environment. Ohdelight passed the objective verification test conducted by the third-party organization and the performance was approved.
As one measure against the heat-island phenomenon, green roof has been increasingly introduced in buildings. Our mid-air greening system "Green Shade" is a planter containing rainwater storage tank, covered with a two-tier mesh panel, along which a creeper grows to make a shadow of green. Our greening system solves problems seen in the existing products for green roof because it needs no large-scale renovation work and can reduce labor of watering by using rainwater and then it can be made use of green wall, too. This product also helps reduce carbon dioxide.
The products are wall finishing materials containing diatomaceous earth as a major ingredient and have excellent humidity control feature, heat insulating effect, and sound absorbability. They are people-friendly interior finishing materials which adsorb hazardous formaldehyde and decompose it into harmless substances. The products which can be painted directly to plasterboards needs no intercoating process when blended with carbon fibers, contributing to resource saving. We also have renovation materials which can be applied on vinyl cloth wallpaper without stripping the wallpaper are also available. SATORI (our wall material brand in the U.S.) acquired the Indoor Advantage Gold.
Natulux is an interior wall finish made entirely from natural materials and is therefore free from resin and other chemical substances. Soil or sand is solidified by using sea tangle extract, rather than the commonly used synthetic resin emulsion. This wall finish is made from only naturally derived raw materials and food additives extracted from natural products.Natulux interior material is utilized for humidity conditioning, which, usually, can be provided only by a plastered wall. Moreover, this material is both environment and people friendly.
"Link Stone G" series are environmentally-friendly recycling paving materials made from waste glass materials such as used bottles. With high weather-resistance and excellent water permeability, the products avoid puddles being left over and are safe. This series are the EcoMark-certified products with appropriate asperities allowing people to walk comfortably on them.
The Indoor Advantage™ Gold is the U.S. standard to certify product safety and the certification is given based on the third-party certification agency. For the buildings using the certified products, the points required for the "LEED certification" indicating are given as the indoor air quality of the buildings is good. The buildings are authorized as green buildings based on the total number of points.
What is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) ?
LEED is one of the programs established and promoted by the "U.S. Green Building Council" organized and operated by the private companies mainly from the construction industry in the U.S. It is the system to evaluate how a building contributes improvement of the environment from various perspectives such as design concept and materials used.
