Business - Metal leaf processing | Activities - Products

Hakuichi's metal leaf processing achievements are extensive in the field, covering various niches such as lighting, robotics, residential construction, automotive, and musical instruments. With a rise in adopting an element of Japan in mass produced products, we have established a business that handles original metal leaf processing. Moreover, we are coordinated not only in metal leaf products, but also, as a window to other traditional industries such as meeting demands for lacquered products, Yuzen dying, and paper products.

Due to a rise in a variety of industries, standards for various product quality is in demand. As some examples of tests for meeting these challenges, we have worked with light-resistance, coating film hardness, abrasion resistance, perspiration resistance, and anti-staining demands. We are meeting demands for efficiency in various products one by one and propose products that can be used for mutual advantage based on synergy.

Specifications are according to the customer's wishes and everything is order made. This is due to individual needs with techniques that differ in concept, durability, and adhesion according to the product. Therefore, a detailed first meeting marks the start of the metal leaf processing. After considering at all the issues regarding product image, concept and materials, we will propose how to represent yourself and how to increase your appeal.
