Insect repellent spray is essential in the summer. Have you ever wondered how much you need to spray to keep insects away, or if too much spray can be harmful to your body?
Do you know that there are sprays and aerosol valves called metering valves (metering spray), which allow you to dispense as much content as needed to be effective?
Metering valves are often used in medical products based on the PMD Act because they can adjust the correct amount to be dispensed.
MITANI, which has the top share of the Japanese market for metering valve production, has developed the KORU, a small actuator specially designed for metering valves, a sustainable product that is environmentally and socially friendly.
KORU prevents losing a cap and your customers can safely use products until the very end. Furthermore, thanks to the built in lock system, your customer will be able to prevent an accidental swallowing as well.
SWAYK is the result of two major innovations to reduce CO2 emissions.
The first is cleaner gas. Our new actuator has a mechanical breakup nozzle that can be used with compressed gases, providing an alternative to the CO2-producing LP gas that is most commonly used at present.
The second is improved production. The rubber ring used in our previous model has been replaced with fully plastic parts, a move that required increased precision during production to enable the same smooth nozzle switching but has slashed CO2 emissions.
These two changes have reduced CO2 emissions by over 90%.
We believe that sustainable products should not only be eco-friendly, but practical and attractive too. The two nozzles and child-proof lock fit perfectly with a universal one-inch aerosol valve, creating a versatile structure that is suitable for all purposes and ages and can be utilized by manufacturers around the world. The futuristic design is aesthetically appealing and visually represents the product’s eco-friendly performance. With CO2 emission levels reaching record highs every year and demand for safer alternatives growing, SWAYK sets a new standard for sustainable aerosol product.
First of all, we thought about what we can do for sustainable social activities. With that in mind, we chose the materials which are not only environmentally friendly (i.e. follow the 4Rs like Reuse, Recycle, Reduce and Reject), but is also good for human health. We want to maintain the current quality and functionality of our products as we start producing sustainable products that contribute to society.
GREEN POLYETHYLENE is a plant-derived resin that is mainly used as a raw material for plastic bags and plastic containers. Sugarcane, the main raw material for GREEN PE, absorbs CO2 at the growth stage. The carbon dioxide emissions from incineration can be considered zero (neutral carbon).
Compared to conventional petroleum-based polyethylene, it consumes less energy in the manufacturing process. Furthermore, it uses electricity from incinerating the shavings (bagasse) after refining sugar from sugar cane. Therefore, more CO2 is reduced. Greenhouse gases are reduced and the material can be recycled in the same way as conventional polyethylene.
MITANIではグリーンポリエチレンを用いたディスペンサーポンプ Z-1000-Cの外装品を新開発しました。 We have developed a new Z-1000-C exterior product made of GREEN POLYETHYLENE.
ポンプ１個当たり11.4gの中で、約55％に当たる5.9ｇが植物由来の樹脂で作られます。 Each Mitani pump weighs 11.4g, of which 5.9g (55%) is made of plant-based plastic.
グリーンポリエチレン採用ディスペンサーポンプ Z-1000シリーズをNEWデザインで現在開発中です。 We are preparing a new design for our Z-1000 series with this GREEN POLYETHYLENE.
