In April 2012, Kuraray Medical Inc. and Noritake Dental Supply co., Ltd. joined forces to become Kuraray Noritake Dental Inc. With the merger of these two multinational companies, Kuraray Noritake Dental aims to create synergies in the areas of development, production, and sales, thus strengthening its presence in the Japanese and global markets.
The company now benefits from an exceptional know-how in organic and inorganic chemistry. With its combined expertise, Kuraray Noritake Dental is now moving forward to develop further high-end dental products – from ceramics to composites and even bio-materials.
Since Kuraray Medical’s introduction of the first adhesive in dentistry, CLEARFIL LINER BOND F in 1978, dentistry has been pushed constantly forward. With Super Porcelain EX-3, launched by Noritake Dental in 1987, a new veneering ceramic category was created. Over the years, products such as the gold standards CLEARFIL SE BOND and PANAVIA proved to be quality references in science.
