Nippon Carbon Co Ltd.
Nippon Carbon, since its establishment in 1915, has developed a variety of products featuring carbon’s prominent attributes.
Our main manufacturing and sales domains are carbon fiber products used for aerospace technology and general industry, High Purity Treatment Graphite used when producing crystalline silicon, Anode Materials for Lithium Ion Battery, Silicon Carbide Continuous Fibers mainly provided for the aerospace industry, impervious graphite and chemicals used for chemical industrial devices and equipment such as heat exchangers, flexible graphite for the automobile industry, and other carbon products.
We are promoting an international market vision by exporting our products overseas and proceeding with application development in partnership with foreign companies.
The technological development of recent electric arc furnaces has been dramatic, as represented by D.C. (Direct Current) furnaces which have seen the capacity enlargement of both the furnace and transformer allowing us to use higher currents and hence higher powers which enables us to achieve a much higher level of productivity. Since successfully making the first ever artificial graphite electrode in Japan in 1927, we at Nippon Carbon have worked to develop and produce our artificial graphite electrodes to be more mechanically robust and stronger against thermal impacts, so as to meet the tough conditions within high-power electric arc furnaces. At present, we are providing 32” (816mm) diameter ultra-high-power electrodes, the largest in the world.
Nippon Carbon’s artificial graphite electrodes are acknowledged for their high quality, being used around the world.
