Thermal Management Material Business

Tokuyama's Thermal Management Material Business handles aluminum nitride ceramics and other related products. A compound of aluminum and nitrogen, aluminum nitride ceramic is a highly functional material with a high rate of thermal conductivity and insulation properties strong enough to prevent electricity from passing through. These products are primarily used as heat-dissipation materials for electronic components that perform unstably when hot, such as semiconductors. These applications cover a wide range of products, including semiconductor production equipment parts, inverters for industrial machinery, IGBT platforms for trains and automobiles, and various environment- and energy-related products. In recent years, SHAPAL aluminum nitride ceramics are attracting special attention as a material for LED heat-dissipating substrates, which are generating high hopes for their potential to save energy. Since launching its Thermal Management Material Business in 1985, Tokuyama has contributed to making electronic components smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient through its heat dissipation products. Going forward, Tokuyama will keep responding to the needs of society while expanding this business as a pioneer in the field of aluminum nitride ceramics.

SHAPAL

SHAPAL

Tokuyama develops products to suit specific applications, including SHAPAL ceramics made by sintering granules and powder made from aluminum nitride powder. By applying its internally developed manufacturing methods and nitride reduction process, Tokuyama produces high-quality SHAPAL products with an extremely low amount of impurities. With these production capabilities, Tokuyama manufactures about 480 metric tons of aluminum nitride products annually—the world's largest production capacity. Furthermore, Tokuyama has risen to prominence as a leading company in the industry with a 60% share of the global market for aluminum nitride powder.
