Japan – Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (MCC) has recently concluded a framework agreement with Konfoong Materials International Co. and KFMI Group company TCPR (Shanghai) Electro-Mechanical High-Tech Co. for the transfer of MCC’s light metal products business.

KFMI and TCPR manufacture sputtering target materials for semiconductors and liquid crystal displays, and rank among the top companies in the world for the manufacture of aluminum target materials, in particular. KFMI and TCPR plan to strengthen their businesses by acquiring businesses positioned upstream from their own operations, and securing a base in Japan. The two companies have a wealth of expertise in the global high-purity aluminum industry, and are long-standing purchasers of MCC’s light metal products.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

This transfer is part of the firm’s efforts to enhance portfolio management based on the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group’s Aptsis 20 medium-term management plan, and is scheduled for completion in April 2021. In conjunction with the transfer, MCC is also considering withdrawal from the manufacture and sales of the KN series products (aluminum alloy for molding applications), which form part of its light metal products business but are not included in this transfer.
