Overview of main products and technologies
Sustimo® is a molding material produced by the heated kneading of lacquer tree resin and wood chips only (plant fiber). Compression molding the material Sustimo® in a mold can be used to produce lacquer molding. After that, it is coated with a natural lacquer and decorated with gold lacquer or lacquer painting. Then, final heat treatment is performed to prevent lacquer rash. Japanese lacquer has two characteristics, namely hardening through the effects of appropriate humidity and enzyme, and hardening through heat. The lacquer that you are familiar with through lacquerware is hardened through the effects of enzymes. Examples of heat hardening include the baked lacquer on Nambu ironware. Sustimo® utilizes the thermosetting property of Japanese lacquer.
