Functional components with design features

  • 5G film antenna

    5G antennas blended into our lives

    This antenna, thinner than conventional products, features flexible bending through film-like processing. DNP's expertise lies in diverse surface designs, including wood grain patterns.

    DNP combines antenna design technology with etching for fine metal patterns to develop a film-type antennas. The sheet covering the antenna surface has been enhanced with EB (Electron Beam) coating to improve the antenna's weather resistance, scratch resistance, and dirt resistance.

  • Reflect array for 5G mmWave

    Delivering radio waves through special reflection for enhanced connectivity and energy efficiency

    Efficiently reflecting radio waves for 5G communication standards, this product allows customization of the direction of incidence, reflection, and spread of reflected waves (beam profile) in the target frequency band. It enables the reflection and delivery of radio waves to locations challenging for base station signals to reach, without requiring additional power supply, thus optimizing energy utilization.

    Design and simulation technologies, developed for optical films (for which we hold the world's top market share) and smart cards, are applied to control light, electromagnetic waves, etc. Patterning technology is utilized in processing components to realize functions as designed. For the thin cover layer required for social packaging, we use design sheets for interior and exterior applications, ensuring enhanced durability through EB (Electron Beam) coating technology.

  • Aluminum decor panel for interior and exterior

    Harmonizing sophisticated design and functionality!
    Bespoke products for interior/exterior

    This decorative panel, designed for both interior and exterior use, features wood grain, geometric patterns, etc., directly printed on aluminum. Beyond its impressive design quality, this high-value product addresses the vulnerabilities of natural materials, offering solutions for fire resistance, weather resistance, weight, and ease of processing and installation. It finds versatile applications across various building settings.

    Leveraging high-definition data creation and plate-making technologies honed in the printing process, along with precision coating technologies, this product allows the expression of the allure of natural materials like wood, stone, and metal. DNP's distinctive materials, utilizing the qualities of aluminum as a base, contribute to crafting comfortable and functional spaces.

High barrier materials

  • Multifunctional insulation box

    Maintains a consistent temperature over an extended period without requiring power

    Sustains a consistent internal temperature over extended durations without relying on electricity. This innovation plays a crucial role in addressing logistics challenges related to perishable foods, industrial products, and pharmaceuticals requiring precise temperature control. Furthermore, it significantly lessens the environmental impact by enhancing efficiency through the combined transportation of room temperature and refrigerated/frozen products, while also minimizing the use of disposable materials through a focus on reuse.

    Utilizing "vacuum insulation panels" incorporating advanced high-barrier technology with low gas permeability that restricts the passage of oxygen, water vapor, etc., along with thermal design technology based on comprehensive simulations, and material development expertise.

  • Corrosion inhibition film

    Ensures long-term protection of contents from corrosion, including rust and other forms of deterioration

    This film hinders the permeation of oxygen and water vapor, safeguarding contents from rust during extended transportation and storage periods. Not only is the film transparent, facilitating easy content checks, but it is also highly effective in preventing rust. The manufacturing process doesn't require cleaning since it doesn't use vaporizable rust inhibitors or rust-preventive oils. Combining it with DNP's eco-friendly, plant-based packaging materials further enhances functionality.

    The product seamlessly integrates lamination technology, which combines multiple materials, and high-barrier technology, preventing gas permeation. DNP's transparent vapor deposition film is laminated onto the sealant film and protective layer film, heat and pressure bonded together. This transparent vapor deposition film has been a staple for decades in various fields such as electronics, medical, and healthcare.

  • Mono-material packaging

    Achieving high recyclability

    Crafted from a single material (mono-material), this packaging is easy to recycle. We are proactively introducing this solution in both domestic and international markets, contributing to the realization of a circular society.

    Converting technology and film deposition technology to process materials with diverse functions, and vapor deposition technology for high barrier are the key-solutions. By synergizing these technologies, we embed essential functions into packaging for a "better future."

Healthcare and life science

  • Intestinal organoids "mini-guts"

    Artificial organs for facilitating drug discovery support

    Despite its diminutive size (1.5 mm in diameter), this three-dimensional miniature organ emulates the functions of a human intestine, encompassing absorption and peristalsis. Beyond its anticipated role in pharmaceutical development, its potential is expanding to include experiments assessing the absorption effects of foods for specified health uses and functional foods, among other possibilities.

    We will employ thin-film multilayer patterning technology, a fusion of DNP's microfabrication technology and precision coating technology, to develop and provide patterned base materials for cultivating cells to form intestine organoids.

  • Soluble microcarriers

    Boosting efficiency through three-dimensional cell culturing

    Microcarriers, microscopic particles that anchor cells to their surfaces in culture medium, facilitate three-dimensional cell cultivation. Unlike conventional two-dimensional culture using petri dishes, microcarriers save space, enabling large-scale cultivation, thereby enhancing work efficiency and reducing costs.

    DNP's proficiency in surface processing technology and material selection has also been extended to micro particles. Collaborating with partner companies specializing in cell culture technology further accelerates our development process.
