Outline of Japanese Criteria of Fireproof-material

By MIHASI on 11/18/2019 0 Comments • Tags: #sunmentocera

Like MIHASI’s Sunmento Cera has been certified by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Japan as a non-combustible product since 2009, Fireproof-materials are widely used in building materials.
In order to be officially certified as Fireproof-material in Japan, the material must meet 3 conditions as below.

 

Basic 3 conditions of Fireproof

 

The material must not burn with a flame.
For fire prevention, the material must not cause harmful damage (deformation, welding, cracking, etc.) .
For safe evacuation, the material must not generate harmful smoke or gas

Material meeting these three conditions is classified as “non-combustible material”, “quasi-incombustible material” or “flame retardant material” according to the length of heating time until it does not meet that condition.

SUNMENTO story 1

By MIHASI on 07/11/2019 0 Comments • Tags: #molding #sunmento

Mihashi Co., Ltd. has reached its 47th year of business. Over time as work to handle molding products has increased, so have product orders of molding products, and our molding department has grown larger. In this way, we have grown into the largest company in the industry dealing with decorative materials for buildings such as hotels and wedding halls. We are also the first to use the word “gorgeous decoration material” in the sense of decorating the building in a gorgeous way.

Therefore, based on the idea that clients will be delighted if we could stably supply ready-made products of gorgeous decoration materials, development, manufacture and supplying of the original brand “SUNMENTO” (crown molding) started.

Clients’ reactions from the beginning of the sale are very good, and further improvements are made to standardization of product quality, unify, and automate production of SUNMENTO, which was conventionally manual processing, to supply products in high quality, at low price and in short delivery time.

Since then, we have created beautiful and rich architectural spaces through products and services, and “SUNMENTO” has grown to become synonymous with the molding field.

The lineup of “SUNMENTO” products and their functions will be introduced next time.
