Showa Denko to Double Capacity at High-Purity Aluminium Foil Plant in China

aluminium electrolytic capacitors

Japanese chemicals company Showa Denko K.K. announced yesterday that it plans to increase capacity at its high-purity aluminium foil plant in the People’s Republic of China.
SDK’s consolidated subsidiary Showa Denko Aluminum (Nantong) Co., Ltd. will raise production from 600 metric tons of high-purity aluminium foil to 800 metric tons in November 2017, when required expansion of the plant is expected to be complete. The plant currently conducts final processing for rolled aluminium foil produced by SDK’s Sakai Plant.
The firm says that the increase is in response to rising demand for aluminium electrolytic capacitors, which require high-purity aluminium foil. Aluminium electrolytic capacitors are used in applications including electric appliances, IT devices, electric vehicles, hybrid cars, and equipment for power generation utilizing renewable energy sources. Demand is especially strong in China, says the company, which prompted the move.
Showa Denko was founded in 1939 as a merger between Nihon Electrical Industries and Showa Fertilizers. It has over 180 subsidiaries divided into five business sectors: petrochemicals, aluminium, electronics, chemicals, and inorganic materials. The firm merged with Showa Denko Aluminum Corporation in 2001 in order to improve its high-value-added fabricated aluminium business.
