The coal tar, crude benzene and other substances obtained from JFE Steel's coking plants are used to produce high-quality intermediate materials that are vital to a wide variety of industries.
Our MCMB(Meso Carbon Micro Beads) graphite, a product totally unique to JFE Chemical, boasts a high packing density, as well as high electric conductivity and high thermal conductivity. Thanks to these characteristics, it is widely used as a material for the anodes of Li-ion rechargeable batteries.
We are expanding our coal tar derivatives business focusing on the most precious substances derived from coal tar (e.g., indene, fluorene, acenaphthene). Our aim is to become the world’s No. 1 producer of these substances.At the same time, we are focusing strongly on the business of polyimide materials and special phenol resins, taking advantage of the outstanding features of aromatic compounds, such as heat resistance, and useful optical characteristics.
JFE Chemical produces iron oxide powders, including nanoscale iron oxide, in a wide range of grades, up to the highest quality. We also supply soft ferrite powders and soft ferrite cores for electrical and electronic components. Furthermore, we strive to offer comprehensive technical services relating to magnetic materials.
