Nitto has secured the global top share in the synthesis of nucleic acid medicines
through its fully equipped facilities and systems, which are capable of carrying out all stages of
development from initial research of the smallest scale to final clinical testing.
Nitto’s transdermal adsorption drugs that apply its adhesive technology have been highly acclaimed for their reliable production technology based on long-standing experience.
Nitto has also developed and manufactured a diverse line of hygienic goods from bandages gentle to the skin to injury-preventing sports tape./p>
Nitto provides a wide range of tape products that can be used in various applications.
Some of the products include tape for cardboard packaging, temporary adhesion tape that doesn't leave
any glue residue when removed, and security tape that makes it possible to know when the tape was
tampered with. Furthermore, Nitto has a lineup of tape applicators that facilitate labor savings and
a reduction in man-hours.
Nitto offers a high-quality packaging system via its rich arrangement of technologies and products for adhesion, peeling, and display.
In addition to Nitto technologies being used in businesses and various technologies,
its products are also widely utilized in the markets of consumer goods. Nitto has been able to supply
the consumer market with various materials from housewares to materials used in hygienic goods such
as diapers, helping customers achieve a more comfortable way of life.
Nitto’s adhesive cleaner "COLOCOLO" series provides a wide variety of products that can be used in diverse applications from picking up pet hair to sebum removal.
Nitto has focused on the needs of the society
and has produced many innovations with
its solid technology and ideas.

Nitto’s technology helps you enjoy a pleasant flight.
Nitto continues its challenge.
Since its establishment in 1918, Nitto has created products based on its core technologies
has contributed to customer’ value creation with innovative ideas.
The adhesive agents in tapes are used in a wide variety of ways due to their convenience,
as it becomes fixed at the time of application, unlike glue. Nitto designs adhesive agents that firmly
stick in the environment it is being applied under all sorts of conditions.
In addition, one of the major characteristics of adhesives is their ability to detach.
Nitto develops adhesive control technology, which enables adhesives to stick firmly when necessary and be removed easily without damage to objects, as well as adhesive products with various features such as “capturing,” “protecting,” and “enduring”.
Coating is the application of various materials over base materials (support), to give
them different qualities. Nitto can add layers with various features to films and sheets, utilizing
such methods as submicron-thin coating, picture coating, lamination, asperous layer formation, and
porous membrane formation.
In addition, Nitto employs its polymerization, dispersion, and mixing technologies to form thin layers, as well as utilize its film-handling and laminating technologies to develop adhesive sheets and highly functional films.
Integrating its techniques to create and process polymer materials, Nitto offers products
with a variety of functions. Nitto is able to create functional polymer through synthesis and
polymerization and design highly functional polymers through organic/inorganic hybrid, alloy, and blend
technologies. Moreover, by processing them with such technologies as stretching, porosity forming, and
surface modification, it is able to invent various kinds of functional materials.
