Fine Carbon Products are high-functionality materials specifically designed to enhance the electrical and thermal characteristics of advanced batteries, electronic devices and alternative energy systems.
Since the early 1990s, vapor-grown carbon fibers produced by Showa Denko have increased the useful life of lithium batteries. Drawing on this experience and its expertise in nanotechnology, Showa Denko has developed carbon nanofibers and nanotubes for emerging applications in composites, engineered resins and electronics.
Showa Denko has extensive experience in the design and production of critical components for fuel cell stacks. These products include impervious carbon composite separator plates for phosphoric acid fuel cells and graphite composite bipolar plates for proton exchange membrane fuel cells.
