Cement Business

Skyscrapers soaring upward as if to pierce the sky and highways stretching endlessly on to the ends of the earth have great power to inspire when viewed as great technological achievements demonstrating both wisdom and skill. As wonders of modern civilization that promise an even brighter future, they stand as symbols of human achievement. Our cement business helps create this inspiration by contributing to functional urban spaces, best typified by skyscrapers, as well as roadways, railways, airports, harbors, and other arteries of society. It has played an important role in providing the social infrastructure for today's vibrant lifestyles. Our mission remains unchanged in the 21st century.

New generation of material technology extends far beyond concrete

Ductal® is a next-generation inorganic composite material technology that offers a revolutionary solution in a wide range of fields, notably civil engineering and construction. This new material does not require the rebar used with conventional concrete, and it has superior self-compacting properties that eliminate the need for compacting. This high-performance product features compression strength of 200 N/mm2and bending strength of 45 N/mm2. It also has a compact structure from minute particles that makes it extremely durable. Ductal® opens up new design possibilities due to its high strength, lightness, and durability. The product is seeing use in steel applications, and we are bringing out new products in a variety of areas. Ductal® is transforming the landscape of Japan, and we are shifting our focus from the present day to the future.
