Production of Environmentally Friendly High Purity COF2 Gas for manufacturing LCD Panels by SDK

January 13, 2011 · Filed Under Clean Tech, Green Tech · 2 Comments 

High-purity fluoride gases are used in etching thin oxide/nitride films in production of LCD panels. The COF2 (Carbonyl Fluoride) for example decomposes by way of hydrolysis into hydrogen fluoride (HF) which is easy to dispose of in comparison to typically used nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) and SF6, resulting in reduction in disposal cost and less environmental impact. Up to now, use of COF2 has been very limited due to its purification related problems as well as its high cost. Read more

Construction of Pilot Plant for Manufacturing Heat-resistance, Transparent Film by SDK

October 13, 2010 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off on Construction of Pilot Plant for Manufacturing Heat-resistance, Transparent Film by SDK 

Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) has started up the construction of its pilot plant at its Oita Complex for manufacturing heat-resistant and transparent film to be used in the filed of displays including touch screen, LCDs as well as other applications requiring optical films requiring high performance. The plant will have the capacity of producing films in the form of rolls and sheets at several hundred thousands square meters of the film a year. The film can be used in high temperature processes of up to 250 degrees Celsius with high light transmittance of 92%, comparable to that of glass and low double refraction. Read more

Thermoelectric Power Generation Based on Waste Heat

February 3, 2010 · Filed Under Clean Tech, Green Tech · Comments Off on Thermoelectric Power Generation Based on Waste Heat 

SDK thermoelectric power generation moduleConversion of heat energy into electricity is based on electric potential difference which is caused by temperature differences at both sides of thermoelectric elements. Around 70% of total energy provided in Japan is wasted through its emission into the atmosphere, making thermoelectric power generation a viable method for utilization of this vast untapped energy coming form different sources, including incinerators, automobiles, ships and industrial equipment, while at the same time it will contribute in reduction of CO2 emission. Up to now, development of thermoelectric power generation has been done on the low temperature range between 100 to 300 degrees Celsius involving hot springs and diesel engines. Based on this, Showa Denko (SDK) and Plantec have made an announcement on full scale demonstration of thermoelectric power generation based on waste heat using SDK thermoelectric conversion modules in a waste incinerator built by Plantec.

Development of World’s Smoothest Silicon Carbide Epitaxial Wafer Surface by SDK

December 9, 2009 · Filed Under Green Tech, Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of World’s Smoothest Silicon Carbide Epitaxial Wafer Surface by SDK 

Showa Denko made an announcement on development of highly smooth (0.4nm in roughness) surface for its largest size four-inch silicon carbide (SiC) epitaxial wafers. The wafers are made by forming a thin layer of single-crystal SiC on the surface of SiC bulk wafers. This new development is a significant improvement in surface roughness in comparison to the SiC epitaxial wafers that come with the roughness of 1 to 2.5 nm, world’s highest level at 0.4 nm. The target application for SiC epitaxial wafers would be in power devices such as inverters responsible for controlling rotation of motors in automobiles, train and industrial/home electric appliances, where the SiC epitaxial wafers will outperform the currently used silicon based semiconductor.

Introduction of Allyl Ester Resin for Spectacle Lenses by SDK

November 23, 2009 · Filed Under Trendy Products · Comments Off on Introduction of Allyl Ester Resin for Spectacle Lenses by SDK 

Basically the spectacle lenses are classified by their level of refraction factors into three categories of high, medium and low. The higher the refraction factor, the thinner and lighter the lens becomes. The current market demand in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America is shifting from glass type lenses to resin type one, and from low refraction ones to medium refraction types. Even in Japan where up to now the higher refraction type lenses have been the main stream demand for medium refraction type lenses is growing thanks to fine balance between the cost and quality of product resulting in an increase in demand for medium refraction lenses at a rate of 20% per year.

Development of Next Generation Liquid Electrolytes for Lithium Ion Batteries by SDK

November 19, 2009 · Filed Under Green Tech, Trendy Products · 3 Comments 

Show Denko KK made an announcement that it will develop a new liquid electrolytes (LIBs) for lithium ion batteries targeted to be used for automobile application. The newly developed LIB utilizes a new and stable electrolyte salt (Li2B12FxH12-x), can replace the conventional electrolyte salts. The new slat has been developed by Air Products and chemicals of the Untied States where SDK has obtained the license. SDK will use the new salt plus its own propriety liquid electrolyte technology in developing the new electrolyte. The use of new slat in the next generation electrolytes is expected to be advantageous due to its inherent characteristics which minimizes reaction with water, it does not generate cathode-corroding acids with the laps of time and has a capability of operating at higher temperatures characteristics that are desirable for automotive applications.

Development of world’s highest light output for Organic EL devices by SDK

July 28, 2009 · Filed Under Clean Tech, Green Tech, Trendy Products · Comments Off on Development of world’s highest light output for Organic EL devices by SDK 

Showa Denko KK. (SDK) made an announcement on development of a new structure for company’s coated phosphorescent polymer based Organic Electroluminescent devices capable of achieving around 40% in light output. The new device with the 30 lm/W emissive efficiency is the highest level that has been recorded among coated type organic EL devices in the world. The company is hoping for commercialization of this new structure to be used for general lighting application in the future. Under the production process organic EL devices are classified into two types, deposition type and coated type. Unlike the deposition type which has a multilayer structure and requires vacuum for its production at a high cost, the coated type consists of few layers which is formed by coating polymer without the use of vacuum, providing a substantial cost reduction in its production.
