In 1990, Mr. Shi Zhengjin, Technical Director of Jointas Chemical initiated to establish the Antas Construction Sealant Research and Development Center. In 2004, the center and South China University of Technology jointly established the postgraduate education base and the demonstration base for the combination of production, teaching and research under the Ministry of Education. The center also worked together with Maoming Branch of China Petrochemical Co., Ltd., China International Marine Containers and other listed enterprises in the research and development of science and technology environment-friendly products.

The Research and Development Center has great strength in technology and has applied for 12 patents for invention, 8 of which have been authorized, involving water-based sealant, water-based paint and other environment-friendly products. The company has participated in the drafting and revision of silicone structural sealant for insulating glass, fire-proof sealant, sealants for stone and other national standards.

The research and development team of the company is made up of over 30 professionals with doctor’s and master’s degrees and has established scientific and rigorous training and management mechanism.
