[Reducing the temperature in summer by 12°C compared with a decorative slate roof.] Low-reflection coating on the back of the tile keeps the attic temperature low. This product realizes a cool environment and also extends the life of the house by preventing the deterioration of base roof materials. [Any surface color is OK!] Reflection-type products have a disadvantage of a glittering surface. There is no restriction on the surface colors because of the back coating.

This technology exhibits heat-proofing performance without impairing the surface design. [Industry] Ceramic roofing tile manufacturing and sales, and roofing material development and sales [Strength of products/technologies] We particularly recommend our Cool Spec heatproof Sanshu roofing tiles. The heatproof coating on the back of the tiles successfully reduces attic temperatures in summer by as much as 12°C compared with a decorative slate roof. This coating agent was developed in collaboration with Aisin Chemical, which is Japan’s top manufacturer of heatproof coating agents. The basic principle of this heatproof tile was acquired in a demonstration research project for innovation in disaster recovery technology. This was adopted by the Chubu Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry in FY 2008 and 2009. We are totally committed to developing products for our customers’ needs. [Representative's message] Our company is a roofing tile manufacturer having a tradition of over 140 years, starting from 1868. We maintain the achievements and trust we have acquired over many years as we continue to take on new challenges. We are now supplying roofing tiles to overseas customers through trading firms.
