Innovative mechanical grease used for more than 40 years since our founding.

Our mechanical grease/oil have been widely used for sliding parts, rotating shafts, gears, bearings and such for electronic mechanisms, precision devices, automobiles etc. We have lined up many product variations to satisfy a wide variety of requirements and accommodate low to high operating temperatures.
Our products can be used stably with various materials including rubber, resin and metal. Colored products are also available. Our comprehensive services include proposals—for example, a proposal on dispensers that prevents errors in use and improves productivity—and other backup services.

Features of mechanical grease / oil

Development and commercialization of pioneering functions

As a professional group of experts on grease, Kanto Kasei has been the pioneer in the industry, having developed various products one after another including the PAO, a series of synthetic hydrocarbon-based grease that is non-diffusive and non-separating. The company has succeeded in adding values to final products by thoroughly pursuing the basic performance required for functional grease and imparting new functions. Our efforts include the improvement of sound dampening qualities that match with functional materials and the improvement of durability of slide mechanisms.
These efforts have led to establish the position of our products as the functional members, playing the central roles in creating the product performance, beyond the category of secondary material as conventionally regarded in the electronics materials industry.

Abundant product line-up and high speed product development

Kanto Kasei’s mechanical grease has solved the-state-of-the-art issues in the electronics materials industry. The main resource that drives the success is our rapid response to our customers backed by development capabilities. Each personnel in charge listening to the technological needs of our customers is also a competent engineer. In Kato Kasei, customers are supported by “sales engineers”, rather than by mere sales persons.
Our sales engineers, well familiar with technological accumulation, are capable of personally engaging in the development of the best suited products to be proposed to our customers. This is evidenced by the number of the developed products well in excess of one thousand. Please do not hesitate to consult with us on any issues that have been given up as unsolvable, such as sound dampening, durability, life extension, oil dispersion and prevention of bleeding.

Conductive Grease

The main component in grounding. For parts requiring conduction and lubrication.
Reliable solution for conductive mechanism.

The main component in grounding. For parts requiring conduction and lubrication. Reliable solution for conductive mechanism.
Made using special conductive (carbon) powder, this grease is an excellent conductor of electricity. It was developed to meet the needs for the grease that can eliminate static, prevent static charge, allow currents to flow and provide lubrication that emerged due to the increase in use of resins, weight reduction and downsizing of mechanical parts, as general grease is non-conductive. The grease has made substantial contribution in the field of precision parts for OA appliances and optical devices.

Features of conductive grease

High conductivity and high lubricity

Highly conductive grease applicable to parts requiring high conductivity. Our line-up includes a high-lubrication type for parts requiring further lubricity.

Products having the capabilities of both conductivity and lubrication.

They are best suited for the parts requiring both wear prevention and lubricity. The implementation examples include improved conductivity in photoreceptor drums of OA appliances and grounding of single-lens reflex camera lens barrels.

Torque/Damper Grease

Creation of excellent touch and premium feeling

Torque / damper grease exploits its high viscosity to intentionally suppresses lubricity and sliding properties, the intrinsic nature of grease, making itself suitable for providing sound-dampening, a refined feel and impact relaxation.
This grease is used in a wide range of fields, including automotive electrical components, electronic controllers, optical devices, electronic music instruments and home electrical appliances. Once applied, a small amount of this grease completely changes the product characteristics without changing its mechanical structure.
For example, the air volume controller of an automotive air conditioner which had been making an unpleasant clattering noise, was changed to make a quiet ticking sound with a smooth operational feeling by mere application of the torque grease.
The zoom lens for high-end single-lens reflex cameras and binoculars, for example, can be adapted for light to heavy operational feeling by simply changing the type of grease.

Features of “torque / damper grease”

From light to heavy operational feeling

Our wide lineup includes grease for low-torque products requiring light operational feeling, and for high-torque products that create heavy operational feeling, and can accommodate any need for fine touches.

Elimination of rasping sound, while conferring a smoother feel.

It is possible to further reduce the shock mitigation effect on hammering sound caused by colliding parts such as on dotting mechanism Furthermore, it would confer a premium feel when handled.

Impregnating Oil

Lineup of oil accommodating requirements for wide temperature range, extreme pressure and silence

FLOIL oil for impregnated metals was developed in 1975 as an impregnating oil for small sintered bearings and has been used since then as the standard oil by bearing manufacturers over the world.
With recent downsizing and noise reduction of motors, as well as the increasing use of resin for peripheral parts, impregnating oils are required to have increasingly stringent temperature characteristics, sound dampening properties and stabilization with resin. Please try the impregnating oils of Kanto Kasei, the industrial pioneer with a long history of achievements.

Features of impregnating oil

Oil with high viscosity index that is rare in the industry

Using synthetic hydrocarbon oil that is stable against resin as a base, our lineup of oils achieves the viscosity index of 230. Various grades of viscosity are available to be used at a wide range of temperatures. The impregnating oil minimizes the viscosity change due to temperature variation.

Extreme-pressure grade with excellent wear resistance

Special extreme-pressure agents decreases metal wear. Our lineup include products with excellent extreme-pressure and sound dampening properties for the parts under high load and/or requiring sound dampening properties.

Thermal Compound

Expert in heat dissipation
<Amazing heat-release performance> <Protecting electronics devices from heat>

Heat is inevitably generated in electronic devices. Prolonged heat generation accumulates damage in the devices. Kanto Kasei has developed a heat-release compound to protect such devices from heat.
When applied between a heat source and heat sink, our heat-release compound decreases the thermal resistance and contributes to more effective heat dissipation.

Features of “thermal compound”

Meeting our customers’ needs

The compound in paste form allows the thickness to be easily controlled, which makes a significant difference from heat-release sheets having the same thermal conductivity. The compound can be applied using a dispenser and can also be reworked, unlike adhesives, providing excellent usability.
