Featuring thousands of chemical formulations that suit varying client requirements, Cemedine’s roughly 5,000 adhesive and sealant products have one thing in common – outstanding performance and quality. To achieve this, the company draws on nearly 100 years of experience to provide industries and construction sectors throughout Asia with the best of such products.

“As a chemical company, we have the distinct advantage of being able to customise various solutions to satisfy the needs of customers,” says Hiroshi Iwakiri, president of Cemedine. “We employ superior technology to achieve the highest standard of quality.”

Unlike ordinary silicone sealants for the construction market, Cemedine’s modified silicone variety does not stain the joints on walls by its oils and can keep the exterior walls clean. The company’s sealant can also be painted over.

The SUPER-X series, meanwhile, has an elastic property like rubber after curing. The series provides excellent adhesion over a wide range of materials. This eliminates the need for using a different type of adhesive for each material as is the case with conventional agents. It does not peel off as it contracts or expands with the bonded materials across a temperature range of -60 degrees Celsius to 120 degrees. Therefore, the SUPER-X series can be found in various industrial markets such as vehicle, electric and factory automation.

Today, through its affiliates on mainland China, Taiwan, Thailand and the Philippines, Cemedine is committed to sharing its technology with more industries and markets in the region. The company is improving its export ratio by expanding sales in existing markets such as China. In addition, it is focusing on Asean countries and Oceania as new markets.

“We welcome local distributors who can help us provide solutions with our products to customers and support us in penetrating fresh markets,” Iwakiri says. “We are also eager to work with local companies that have the technical capability to expand sales of our products.”
