Delivering Outstanding Development Skills and the On-Site Capabilities to Win out in the Business world

The progress in IT and electronics technologies has made our lives significantly more convenient through such items as personal computers, smartphones and tablet devices, not to mention automobiles and home appliances. Our Electronic Materials & Components Business supplies the electronics industry with unique, high-value-added products made from our disinctive materials.

Business Summary

Major products of Electronic Materials & Components Business.

Sales 63.0 billion yen, Operating Profit 2.4 billion yen, Share of Net Sales 4.8%(FY2017)

The Electronic Materials & Components Business conducts business in four product categories: advanced materials, chemical products, electronic components and silicon.
The advanced materials division, whose operations center on the Sanda Plant, supplies various types of sputtering targets for smartphone displays and LCD televisions, as well as direct-bonded aluminum (DBA) substrates (highly reliable insulated circuit boards) for hybrid automobiles, low-alpha ray soldering materials and processed silicon products.
Mitsubishi Materials Electronic Chemicals Co., Ltd., is central to the chemical products department, which supplies solar heat-ray shielding films for window glass used in the automotive and construction industries, and organic fluoride products.
The electronic components division is based on the Ceramics factory. This division supplies thermistors and surge absorbers for home appliances, communication devices and other electronic products, as well as chip antennas and other electronic components. In recent years, we have seen these products being increasingly employed in oil and air temperature sensors as demands for electronic controls and fuel efficiency have grown more pronounced in the automobile and motorcycle industries.
The silicon division supplies high-purity polycrystalline silicon and chlorosilane gas manufactured at the Yokkaichi Plant and Mitsubishi Polycrystalline Silicon America Corporation to fields such as semiconductor and electronics materials.
