In 1918, Nitto was founded in Osaki, Tokyo,
paving the way for domestic production of electrical insulating materials.

Nitto Group continues to work with customers,
offering various products and developing business globally.

Nitto will continually challenge to inspire the world
and create values that a society recognizes,
taking the changes of the society as an opportunity.

Business Area / Markets

Everywhere, Comfortable Life

Nitto has continued its challenges with
the near future in mind in areas no one else has ever challenged.

Nitto’s Core Technology

Creations Made Possible
by Technological Excellence

Since its establishment in 1918, Nitto has created products based on its core technologies and
has contributed to customer’ value creation with innovative ideas.

Adhesion Technology

The adhesive technology of tapes are used in a wide variety of applications due to their convenience. Unlike glue, tapes become fixed upon application. Under many different environmental conditions, Nitto has designed adhesive agents that will stick firmly.
Nitto also develops adhesive control technology that allows adhesives to stick firmly when necessary and remove easily without damage to objects.
Other adhesive technology includes products with various features such as “capturing,” “protecting,” and “enduring.”

Coating Technology

Coating technology allows for the application of various materials over base materials/supports to give them different qualities. Nitto specializes in adding layers with different features to films and sheets by utilizing methods such as submicron-thin coating, picture coating, lamination, etching and porous membrane formation.
In addition, Nitto employs its polymerization, dispersion and mixing technologies to form thin layers. Nitto also utilizes its film-handling and laminating technologies to develop adhesive sheets and highly functional films.

Polymer Function Control Technology

In order to offer products with a variety of functions, Nitto integrates its techniques to create and process polymer materials. Through organic/inorganic hybrid, alloy and blend technologies, Nitto is able to create functional polymers through synthesis and polymerization as well as design highly functional polymers. By processing the polymers with stretching, porosity forming and surface modification technologies, Nitto is able to invent a variety of functional materials.

Polymer Analysis and Evaluation Technology

By looking at causes to outcome projections, Nitto delivers outstanding performance and reliability to forge a path forward into the future. Nitto incorporates its analyzation, evaluation and simulation techniques into product design to deliver highly reliable products. This is achieved by carrying out extensive performance evaluation and durability analysis on all finished products. In addition, by evaluating actual applications, Nitto is able to suggest the best products, optimal use and conditions for use.

Onward, Toward the Future

Societies and industries surrounding people change on a daily basis.
Foreseeing a great change in the future environment,
Nitto continues to create new businesses,
strategically focusing on and strengthening 3 areas.

Information Interface

As information technology grows in our society, mobile devices and high-speed telecommunications require more advanced technologies and components. At Nitto, we will continue to aggressively expand our markets with high-precision substrates, electronic materials for data centers, and semiconductor process materials as drivers of growth. We will also contribute to the realization of smart societies through the commercialization of products such as plastic optical fibers.

Next-generation Mobility

We are witnessing a dramatic transition from engines to electric motors, especially for automobiles. This is accompanied by a conspicuous shift to electronics for in-vehicle equipment. We contribute to safe and highly convenient lifestyles by introducing new products that enhance mobility safety, efficiency, and comfort. In addition, we will assertively roll out electronic and functional materials for the CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electric) market, such as radio wave absorbers for sensing units that are indispensable for self-driving technology.

Human Life

The Nitto Group has long been involved in the medical business, which currently includes drug discovery in another niche market of nucleic acid medicine, and its contract manufacturing in the U.S. Given the rise in the need for clean and safe environments, we will keep working for the realization of healthy, comfortable lifestyles. We will do this by providing components for medical products and sanitation materials such as disposable diapers and masks. We will also continue to develop membrane modules to remove toxic substances from wastewater, allowing it to be reused. These are just a few of the examples of products we create that are indispensable for everyday life.
