JFE Chemical’s technology and products support industry and enrich life
JFE Chemical supplies high-grade products for a broad range of industrial applications. These include truly unique, innovative products, as well as products that command a world-leading market share. Our products help customers to create high-quality, high-performance products, and they contribute to enriching life and advancing society.
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.
Spherulitic graphite, a product unique to JFE Chemical, features a high packing density, as well as high electric conductivity and also high thermal conductivity. Thanks to these characteristics, it is widely used as a material for the anodes of lithium-ion (Li-ion) rechargeable batteries.
Indenes and fluorenes are intrinsic components of coal tar, considered the “jewels of coal tar.” JFE Chemical pays very close attention to the unstable pentagonal molecular structures that make up tar components. Interesting properties relating to the color and light generated by their chemical reaction can lead to the development of chemical products of vital importance in the field of optical science.
JFE Chemical produces iron oxide powders, including nanoscale iron oxide, in a wide range of grades, up to the highest quality. We also supply desulfurizing materials for environmental technologies, and soft ferrite powders and soft ferrite cores for electrical and electronic components. Furthermore, we are aiming to offer comprehensive magnetic materials-related technical services.
Thermoformable Composite Sheets(KP-Sheet)
This sheet-shaped plastic material is formed from thermoplastic resin and glass fiber using papermaking techniques. Thanks to its excellent machinability, the material can be formed using only a press, without the need to melt resin, for the manufacture of products such as the interior ceilings and rear trays of cars.
