About Us

Kief CEO Message

Kanto Chemical Industry was established in 1954 as a joint-stock company in 1957. Our current three main businesses consist of contract manufacturing of powder products, manufacturing and sales of our own “Seal Peel” – a product for protection of metal surfaces, and manufacturing and sales of de-icing fluids for aircrafts.

In contract manufacturing, our factory holds both large and small knurling equipment to mix and fill various powder materials. We ensure efficient production, minimize damage to raw materials, and minimize loss in our operation. Our equipment can also be easily water rinsed, making it capable of handling a wide variety of products.
We have been commissioned by many companies including some of the world's leading corporations for many products – aimed at both industrial and for general consumers.

We also manufacture and sell our own product "Seal Peel" – a product with a focus on protecting metals.
Metals are susceptible to corrosion, scratching, and surface contamination. "Seal Peel" is an excellent product that can be applied to such objects to create a film that can easily protect the surface and prevent rust. This product is used in a wide range of industries. It can be applied to objects with complex shapes and can be used not only for protection and rust prevention, but also for masking.

Furthermore, we have been protecting the aircrafts of Japan for more than 30 years.
In Japan, winters can be very cold with snowfall in many regions. Aircrafts with snow or ice on their wings cannot gain enough force of lift to take off. We have a manufacturing and sales license agreement with an overseas company to manufacture and sell de-icing fluids for domestic aircrafts to support safe flight operations in winter. We have earned the trust of our customers with our high quality, reliable, and timely supply system – and are proud to have the No.1 share in the domestic market.

There are still many superficial and latent problems in the consumer/industrial world today, even with the advancement of technology on a global scale. Based on the technical capabilities and sincere customer service that we have cultivated over the past 60 years since our founding, our company will continue to work to further improve our technology to help solve your problems.
President & CEO Hiroshi Abe
