Polymer material technologies Fine circuit fabrication technology

We contribute to the development of products and technologies in the Group's extensive business fields by leveraging our core technologies for metal, inorganic, and polymer materials as well as fine circuit fabrication.

Metal and inorganic material technology

For weight reduction of wiring materials in automobiles, we are conducting the development of aluminum alloy wires and their application to wiring harnesses in collaboration within our group, using our technologies for continuous casting and plastic forming.

Polymer material technology

Employing polymer synthesis and resin formulation technologies, we have been developing a wide array of products such as electric wires and cables in the fields of environment and energy, electronics, and automotive, as well as magnet wires for environment-friendly vehicles.
We are also working on the development of newly functional and high-performance polymer materials through nano-sized material structure control (polymer alloy and nano-composite).

Fine circuit fabrication technology

To accommodate the need for high-density and fine circuits, we are developing nanoparticles of metals as well as their ink and paste. We are also working on their application to our electronics products.
