We propose a window film that makes the scenery seen from the window looks more natural and vivid, by using our light control material. Applying this film to the windows of resort hotels, the color of blue sky or autumn leaves look vivid. If you put it on a showcase, the red color of the strawberry on a cake look redder and the white of the cream look whiter. We would like to help you feel refreshed, enjoy meals and shopping, and spend your daily life positively by showing the colors of what you see vividly.

Antibacterial/Antiviral Film Pal Fresh™​
"Pal Fresh™​ is a film with high safety, such as being used in food packaging as a polyolefin-based freshness preservation packaging material and contributing to the reduction of food loss, complying with the Food Sanitation Act, FDA, GB and registered with SIAA.
With the growing need for antibacterial and antiviral films, we released a news release on September 28, 2021 to reduce viruses by more than 99.98%. Another feature of Palfresh™​ is that a special antibacterial agent is kneaded into the polyethylene film itself. This ensures antibacterial sustainability for more than two years. It has better water resistance than coat formulations. Taking advantage of this performance, we will strengthen the development of new applications in the age of Living with Covid-19.
In early October 2022, MediTrust started selling antibacterial standard bags and antibacterial adhesive processing films on Amazon. “

Cell culture solution business utilizing High performance material TPX™
There is a growing demand for alternative technologies for animal testing in pharmaceutical, drug development and food development. Also, as well as the promotion of smart agriculture in the agricultural sector due to the decline in the working population. By utilizing TPX™, which has a high oxygen permeability, we developed functional cell culture vessels for medical and drug discovery research, and also under developing heat-sealable aseptic bags for agricultural use. We aim to acheive a one-stop solution business in the cell culture field by taking advantage of our strengths.

Providing Prime Solutions for the Packaging future - Polyethylene from Prime Polymer Group
“In addition to the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) Evolue™ would like to introduce 2 new Rs (Re-design and Revitalize) to tackle the fundamental issues surrounding plastic recycling and provide new life to plastic waste. We will reduce the overall plastic usage by allowing down-gauging of flexible packaging. Promote the reuse of packaging by improving product quality. Incorporate recycled plastic waste through the use of circular raw material. Aid customers in redesigning their packaging to promote recyclability. All-PE packaging design will be our focus which will simplify segregation and disposal. The use of Evolue™ will also revitalize the end-of-life of plastics, redirecting waste to PCR resins and pyrolysis oil.

Building Oral Care Data Business with Oral Care and Medical Examination
Did you know that there is a link between periodontal disease and diseases such as diabetes and myocardial infarction?
Early detection and treatment of periodontal disease bacteria may help prevent disease. We have developed new primers for PCR tests that can detect with high accuracy "PgTypeII bacteria" which is said to be particularly susceptible to severe periodontal disease.
We would like to introduce our business plan, which includes not only test kits but also a "data business" that provides accumulated data through our services.

Approach to mechanical recycling from the materials perspective
In 2021, we have been participating in a resource recovery program in Kobe City as J-CEP program, interacting with local governments and citizens, and recycling the recovered resin. We made a bench as something visible and returned it to Kobe City. Through this activity, we recognaized the difference between products that are easy to recycle and products that are difficult to recycle.
We will introduce the approach to recycling products that are difficult to recycle ≒ high-performance products, how to use recycled resins, etc., including other programs.

-We're reshaping the world from a material level.-
The world is transitioning away from plastic amid growing consciousness of global warming and plastic waste problems. But plastic offers so much convenience and user-friendliness that it is now an integral part of our daily life. Simply renouncing plastic use will inevitably reach a limit at some point. We need a new regenerative way of thinking to ensure we are ready for that day.
Under the key word "We explore the materials of materials", we have launched BePLAYER™ and RePLAYER™ initiatives to realize our goals of carbon neutrality and a circular economy. These initiatives are aimed at achieving social progress by involving everyone as a player.
At this event, we will introduce the concept of these two brands.
