Making life more comfortable

As exemplified by the development of cellulose, Rengo constantly works to develop new functional materials utilizing the manufacturing know-how we have built up over many years. By combining packaging types, we are not only achieving higher functionality but are also contributing to making life a little easier.


Viscopearl® (porous cellulose beads)

Viscopearl® (porous cellulose beads)

These cellulose beads, manufactured from wood pulp, offer excellent porosity and can provide gradual-release action for medicines and other such products. Used for enclosing other functional materials such as aromatic agents and activated carbon.


Cellgaia®

Cellgaia® (pulp that zeolite crystallized at high density)

Cellgaia is a type of high-function pulp in which zeolite - which effectively absorbs harmful gases and bad odors, and also has great antibacterial properties - is crystallized inside cellulose fiber. In the past it was difficult to process zeolite, but Rengo has made it possible to use zeolite for paper and nonwovens. According to desired functions, this product can be supported by metals such as copper and silver to further enhance its performance.


Gas Q (gas adsorption sheets for cultural property protection and other purposes)

Gas Q (gas adsorption sheets for cultural property protection and other purposes)

These gas adsorption sheets feature excellent capabilities for purposes including the protection of cultural properties, utilizing the superb gas adsorption performance of Cellgaia, a type of zeolite high-density crystallized pulp material developed by Rengo.


SAFLONĀ® (viscose-processed paper)

SAFLON® (viscose-processed paper)

Processed paper coated with viscose obtainable from high-grade cellulose pulp such as paper and nonwovens. Offers controlled air permeability, excellent resistance to hot water, and remains strong even when damp, making it ideal for packaging such items as insecticides, medicines, and foodstuffs.


Wasaveil® and WaSAAce® (natural anti-bacterial/anti-mold agents)

Wasaveil® and WaSAAce®
(natural anti-bacterial/anti-mold agents)

Employing wasabi and mustard constituents, these products are used as anti-bacterial and anti-mold agents. When processed into a film, in addition to prolonging the shelf life of foods, they can be placed in shoes and bags to prevent mold.


Tinted film

Tinted film

Sunlight-inhibiting film used for automobiles and building windows. Available in dark tint, light tint, and a variety that blocks ultraviolet light.


Cellophane

Cellophane

An old standard, this transparent wrapping is a cellulose film manufactured from wood pulp. Cellophane is readily biodegradable and is friendly to the environment, emitting no noxious gases even when burned. It remains an ideal wrapping for food items and pharmaceuticals.


Technology of coating

Technology of coating

We add various functions to based film of polyester, nylon, polypropylene with converting coated layers. (wide : max 2200mm, Suitable for various kinds of OEM)
