Stainless Steel Foil Metal Foil Centre, Electronics Materiald Div. (3434, Shimada, Hikari-City, Yamaguchi – Japan)
Through integrated production control, from melting to the end products, NIPPON STEEL & SUMIKIN MATERIALS manufactures highly functional and ultrathin stainless steel foil that is excellent in etching properties and press formability, in addition to ultimately high thickness accuracy, strength, and spring characteristics.
Stainless steel foil is produced through the highly accurate rolling of stainless steel to be as thin as 100 mm, thus it has excellent flexibility, lightweight characteristics, and corrosion resistance. Compared with aluminum foil and copper foil, stainless steel foil has superior corrosion resistance, strength, and electric resistance.
(1) Stable supply of high-quality products through integrated production control
(2) Excellent in thickness accuracy and shaping, with less surface defects; highly accurate and ultrathin stainless steel foil with a thickness of 10 mm (at minimum) and with a width of up to 460 mm can be provided. (Thickness: 10um～ Width: ～460mm)
Springs for electronic and precision devices, reinforcement of circuit boards, honeycomb bodies (catalyst carriers for treating emissions), etc.
