The consumption of paints in one country is considered as an indicator of the maturity of its culture. Paints have been widely used in various fields of industry and life. The variety and applications of paints have markedly increased with the remarkable progress of technology. Today, many products are being manufactured to satisfy every need.


Moreover, the diffusion of heavy-duty protective coatings which demonstrate outstanding performance under severe conditions and environments has made an immeasurable contribution to the development of industry and enhancement of people's living conditions. For example, more reliable coatings have been demanded increasingly, especially in such industries as nuclear power stations that supply vast amount of energy, and a large-scale bridges for convenient transportation and traffic, where coating application work and maintenance work is difficult.


Japan Carboline is dedicated to the development, manufacturing, and sales of innovative heavy-duty protective coatings with the twin targets of "Saving operating cost through long-term corrosion prevention," and "Shortening work period and making maintenance easy through reduction of the number of paint application work".
