Hadras Holdings adopts ‘Anti-Graffiti Project’ for Bunkyo Co-Creation Field Project (B+)

Hadras Holdings K.K. (Representative: Hideaki Yamamoto) is pleased to announce that its ‘Anti-Graffiti Project in Bunkyo Ward’ has been adopted by the Bunkyo Co-Creation Field Project (B+) run by the Bunkyo Ward. The Bunkyo Co-creation Field Project (B+) is a project that uses Bunkyo Ward as a field and provides various types of support for the realisation of demonstration projects using advanced and innovative technologies, etc., carried out by start-up companies, universities and other organisations with the aim of solving local and social issues.
The content of this demonstration project is to try a new approach to the problem of graffiti, which is increasing in urban areas. Specifically, the project will use Hadras Coating, a glass coating technology developed by the company, to create an environment that makes graffiti on the walls of buildings and public facilities more resistant to graffiti. In the unlikely event that graffiti does occur, it can be easily removed.

The project applies Hadras Coating, a glass coating technology developed by the company, to the walls of public facilities to make them more resistant to graffiti spray and other paints. In the unlikely event of graffiti being applied, the product has the advantage that the graffiti can be easily removed. Taking advantage of these product features, the company will participate in the Bunkyo Co-Creation Field Project (B+) as part of the Bunkyo Ward Graffiti Prevention Project and conduct a demonstration project. Hadras coatings are attracting attention as an effective means of solving the graffiti problem facing the country.

Hadras is a high-purity nanomaterial coating developed in Japan, which reacts with water in the air when coated, creating a high-purity, nano-level thin transparent glass film. The ingredients penetrate into invisible nano-level cracks, smoothing the coated surface and improving operability.

This glass film has been proven to protect against dirt and scratches and increase surface hardness. Due to its very thin film, it does not affect the feel, appearance or operability. Various functions have been developed, such as anti-corrosion, UV resistance and anti-virus. They are also increasingly being introduced in public transport and public institutions.
