- Environment-friendly, Utilizing Biomass as Raw Material and Fuel, and Yet Can Withstand Heat of 1,000 degrees Celsius -

JAPAN INSULATION CO., LTD. has released "DAIPALITE-EA," a thermal insulation material developed on the basis of the results of ODA-based cooperation research with Malaysia. By using rice husk ash as an alternative material for silica stone, it enables effective use of rice husk which cause environmental pollution by river dumping. Moreover, by utilizing the heat (biomass energy) generated when burning rice husk in the reaction and drying processes, carbon dioxide emissions can be greatly reduced.


JAPAN INSULATION manufactures "DAIPALITE-EA" in An Giang Province, Vietnam. The "DAIPALITE" project was certified by the An Giang provincial government as an environment-friendly project for its carbon dioxide emission control effect which contributes to global environmental conservation.

The company's technology is registered with the Environmental Technology Database of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) Investment and Technology Promotion Office, Tokyo (ITPO Tokyo).

Environmental Technology Database:


Since "DAIPALITE-EA" is based on Xonotlite, with heat resistance to 1,000 degrees Celsius, it is used at places such as power plants and petrochemical plants for insulating equipment and pipes with high internal temperatures, thereby contributing to industrialization in developing countries. The product standards comply with ASTM. In addition, JAPAN INSULATION also manufactures "DAIPALITE-E," equivalent to JIS type products, in Vietnam.


The company manufactures and sells calcium silicate-type fireproof, non-combustible building materials and thermal insulation materials as well as designing them, and undertakes fireproof construction, design and construction of thermal insulation for industrial plants.
