The manufacturing technology for large-scale ceramic panels is an innovative technology which is patented in seven countries worldwide. A large-scale size of 900 X 300mm per ceramic panel has a high degree of measurement accuracy and resistance to curving or distortion. With a superior heat resistance of +D5, the same ceramic panels can be fired repeatedly to expand the range of color reproduction as well as finished expression.
The Italian term TERRA COTTA is a coinage originated from the words terra (clay) and cotta (bake) and was used as an architectural building decoration when western neo-architectural technology flowed into Japan. A wide range of terracotta products are made by fully utilizing traditional ceramic molding techniques including "tebineri" (hand-forming from coils of clay), "teokoshi" (manually raising the clay), "tatara" (building from clay slabs), "ikomi" (clay casting), and "rokuro" (clay throwing on a wheel). The clay drying method conforming to the standard rules of building construction is applied to increase commercial reliability.
Ohmi's OT Ceramics were the first large-scale "toban" ceramic panels, at a size of 600 X 600 mm, developed for construction use in Japan. At the same time, a wall adhesion method was developed to apply them to the exterior walls of skyscraper buildings. The ceramic-covered walls and outdoor floors provide life-long durability and safety under any severe environmental condition.
