Kanaflex Corporation Co., Ltd.
Kanaflex Corporation formed a business alliance with Taisei Rotec. Start for joint development of civil engineering materials,
construction materials, and materials for renewable energy
Construction material manufacturer Kanaflex Corporation (Headquarters: Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture; Representative: Shigeki Kanao) and Taisei Rotec Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo;
Representative: Yoshinori Nishida), a major road paving company. On December 30, 2022, we signed a business alliance with the aim of jointly or cooperatively promoting the development of new products for civil engineering materials, construction materials, and materials for renewable energy, as well as the development of new fields. rice field.

■ Background and purpose of the business alliance
Kanaflex Corporation has developed and sold pipes and hoses that support infrastructure, as well as construction methods for
rehabilitating special parts of electric utility tunnels and aging pipelines.
In 2015, we succeeded in developing a completely new material, “Kanacrete (TM)”, a fiber-reinforced lightweight ceramic material that can replace conventional concrete. Although it is lighter than ordinary concrete, it has about three times the bending strength and about twice the compressive strength, and also has excellent heat insulation properties. We have many products such as “Kanacube” for storing soil, “Zero Knock” hand hole for electric facilities, “Kanacrete special part” for electric wire joint trench, Kanacrete floor slab for mud, Kanacrete road bridge slab, etc. We develop and support civil engineering construction and infrastructure in Japan. At the same time, for more than half a century, Taisei Rotec Co., Ltd. has been striving to improve pavement technology with the aim of creating roads that are comfortable for people and environmentally friendly pavement. As an expert in road paving, we are working on the development of social infrastructure such as expressways, general roads, airports, harbors, and streets. In addition, we support the development of cities that are resilient to disasters, such as construction of residential land to create a livable living
environment, and pipeline construction to underground lifelines such as water and sewer pipes and electric wires.
Since most of Japan’s infrastructure was built during the high-growth period, the deterioration of infrastructure is progressing, which is becoming a serious social problem. Over the next 20 years, the percentage of facilities that are over 50 years old is expected to increase at an accelerating rate. In order to solve this aging infrastructure problem, urgent renewal work is necessary.
Kanaflex Corporation has been developing to update infrastructure speedily and at low cost.
Through this business alliance with Taisei Rotec Co., Ltd., we will provide better and superior products more speedily by promoting joint research, development, design, prototyping, commercialization production, and sales.
