DNP booth main exhibits and product features

1. Exterior decorative sheet with various functions enhanced by EB technology

Decorative film used in exteriors for building doors, window frames and louvers. Numerous design variations can be produced based on the fact that the texture can be embossed on patterns such as wood. Also, by combining EB technology with weather-resistant agents it is also possible to enhance durability by preventing weathering and color fading of the design due to ultraviolet rays. At the same time, the product emits low amounts of the 13 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) subject to the guidelines drawn up by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in 2002, and considered to cause sick house syndrome. These VOCs include chemical substances, such as formaldehyde, toluene, and xylene.

2. Wood veneer substitute sheet – allows for after-painting of printed sheet

The veneer substitute decorative sheet is a decorative sheeting that allows for after-staining, and which substitutes for the thinly sliced wood veneer used in furniture, fittings, and window frames to date. It has been developed from the standpoint of environmental protection and as a solution to distribution concerns overcoming challenges, such as unstable distribution and soaring prices, which have emerged as a result of the depletion of wood resources. We will present two types of products, with either paper or PVC as the base material, which can be used in line with the objective and the processing shape.
