Technology of NANO-SAKURA

NANO-SAKURA is the composite material of nano cellulose and various type of resins. Nano cellulose is said to be 5 times stronger of steel with 1 / 5 of its weight.  It has been recognized that when nano cellulose is combined with resins, mechanical strength of resin will be stronger.  However, surface of cellulose is basically covered with numerous number of hydroxyl groups and they are basically hydrophilic.  In contrast, resins are generally hydrophobic so that it is quite difficult to mix nano cellulse and resins with good dispersibility, as well as to increase the mechanical strength of composite material.  Although we made it possible with our composite technology which results in creating NANO-SAKUA.

The relation of “nano cellulose” and “resins” is like “water” and “oil”

Highly advanced composite technology to mix nano cellulose and various type of resins uniformly.

CNF:Cellulose Nano Fiber

All of plants, woods on this planet is mainly composed of cellulose, hemi cellulose and lignin.  Nano cellulose can be obtained by breaking down cellulose into nano size level.  When nano cellulose is appropriately mixed with resins, functionality such as mechanical strength, heat durability, crystallinity, gas barrier property, dimension stability would be improved.  Thermal expansion will be lowered.  On top of that, biodegradability of composite material will be enhanced by mixing with biomass derived nano cellulose.  Nano cellulose is intensively developed in all over the world nowadays as they can be next generation resin filler material after glass fiber and carbon fiber.
