The Shimizu Plant boasts highest-level technologies in the field of alumina chemicals in Japan. Taking advantage of its technological strengths, the plant has put in place thorough production and quality management systems to ensure the stable supply of high quality products that satisfy the requirements of customers. For their excellent properties, aluminum hydroxide and alumina enjoy wide use as raw materials for flocculants, fire-resistant and heat dissipation fillers for electric and electronic materials, as well as interior materials, such as cultured marble, ceramics, fire-proof materials, and abrasives. As principal raw materials for new ceramics, low soda alumina is also coming into wider use as it has met demanding quality requirements of electronic materials, where high performance and reliability is needed. Drawing on our research and development strengths developed over the years, the Shimizu Plant will continue to strive to provide high value-added products so that we can adequately meet emergent needs of the new era.
