RESEARCH&
DEVELOPMENT

We are enthusiastic about technological development more than anyone else.

“No one can imitate our manufacturing style.”
Our products are anything but final.
Customers who use our products will complete our works, such as printed T-shirts. A combination of our manufacturing efforts and customers’ attempts to utilize our products will finalize our goods eventually for the first time.
First of all, we value our customers’ opinions and comments, gather information based on them, and continuously research and develop new and unique products.
When developing a product, we are confident of our ability to build something that other companies do not offer or something that only our company can materialize.
In the future, we will continue to work with our customers to produce invention products that satisfy our customers and rules out any imitation by anyone.
UNIBINDER TN-4929(N)
The origin of the name of TN-4929 (N):
TN means “transfer print.”
4929 means “glue well.” 4929 are read YO(4), KU(9), TSU(2), KU(9) in Japanese number.
YOKUTSUKU means “glue well.” So, we named TN-4929.
Transfer print is a method to print on a PET film and transfer to a cloth by thermo-pressure.
This method is in use for brand logo marks and size notation.
This product is called an adhesive binder.
TN-4929 (N) glues a design to a cloth by heat and pressure.
The adhesive strength is superior to that of other products. It will show excellent durability against washing at 60 degrees Celsius.
Initially, transfer printing relied primarily on sprinkling adhesive powder.
However, removing the powder required a troublesome process.
In order to make high quality adhesive binder instead of powder, our company has improved a foil binder many times and then finally developed TN-4929(N) that upgrades an efficiency of printing.
UNIBINDER SB-1
SB-1 is an anti-pollution binder by sublimation binder for polyester cloth.
T-shirts, especially sporty clothing, have increasingly switched from cotton to polyester.
Polyester cloth is dyed with disperse dye easy to sublimate.
In the process of printing on a polyester cloth, disperse dye may migrate and discolor printed areas.
SB-1 is not a conventional black binder using activated carbon, but a white type using a unique filler.
Besides, it demonstrates the same performance of sublimation prevention almost equivalent to the activated carbon type.
Coloring can be done to match the color of the cloth. So, it can make inconspicuous a displacement between top layer and SB-1 layer.
MESSAGE
UNIKASEI Co.,Ltd. is the textile chemical manufacturer founded at Kyoto in 1973. In 50 years of our history, we have been promoting research and development of wide-ranging products from the apparel perspective. Also, we have been trying to make the world a better place by our business.
The 3S of “Soul, Spark, and Surprise” are our fundamental manufacturing policy. The policy is the same as the one for our rock band in my early days. Each of our products is a collection of ideas born from the souls of researchers. It is a result of inspirations and a crystal of surprises.
Our corporate philosophy is: “Only One & Next One”. “Only One” means we do not only produce something unique but deliver what can be called the masterpiece. “Next One” relates to an episode of Charles Chaplin, the comedy king, who answered “Next One” when asked by a reporter, “What is the best masterpiece in your movie so far?” Likewise, our company will never be satisfied but believe we should be able to provide better products.
People today will increasingly seek something more valuable and more sustainable. We are involved in the textile business as a small and efficient R & D manufacturing company. We will continue to devote ourselves to society with pleasure to appreciate even a little bit of progress.
