Environmentally Friendly Products
The Dexerials Group is promoting efforts to reduce the quantity of environment-related controlled substances contained in its products or used in manufacturing processes, by switching to alternative raw materials and eliminating the use of solvents from manufacturing processes. Also we are developing and commercializing technologies that contribute to reducing environmental burden.
Typical environmentally friendly products
Halogen-Free type Self Control Protector (SCP)
This Self Control Protector (SCP) is a surface mounted fuse that protects products by interrupting overcharge or overcurrent in Li-ion rechargeable batteries mounted in tablet PCs and cordless electronic tools. Typically, products used halogenated compounds which emit dioxins when incinerated. Dexerials, however, has advanced ahead of the rest of the industry, and has been developing and selling halogen-free products since 2008, and is presently working to eliminate halogen from all of its products.
Furthermore, in 2018, we developed and acquired patents for Pb-free technology for fuse elements in Self Control Protectors (SCP).
Development of UV curable products
UV curable adhesives
The bonding material, which cures in a short time using ultraviolet irradiation, is suitable for high-accuracy part bonding and lamination.
Environmental burden reducible technologies
Waste (sludge) Reduction
Water treatment agent
This is a product that was conceived by applying Dexerials elemental technologies of organic material design and formulation to reduce the amount of agents and sludge waste of inorganic water treatment as part of the activities to reduce the environmental burden at our factory in 2009. Dexerials achieved water treatment that has three functions— coagulation, flocculation, and dewatering —in only by one agent and that enables a great reduction in the amount of agents used for primary treatment and sludge waste by utilizing characteristics of natural plants.
