R&D: Corporate R&D Center

Our comprehensive R&D organization and relentless research continues to develop revolutionary products.

Materials represent the cornerstone of technology. Although you may not see them on a day-to-day basis, the products that enable our comfortable modern lives rely on a wide range of cutting-edge materials. We are constantly working on research and development, in an effort to create materials with new properties and to contribute to society.
As the core R&D organization within the Engineered Materials Sector, our R&D Center is constantly conducting research day-in, day-out. It carries out research and development efficiently thanks to a flexible structure that enables teams to be formed for each area of research. It also carries out research and development on a daily basis in conjunction with the Materials Analysis & Exploration Center and our New Product & Process Development Center.
To date, it has successfully developed a number of the products that underpin Mitsui Kinzoku’s business, including thin copper foil, PVD materials and ultrafine powders. With its tireless devotion to research and a fully integrated development structure, the R&D Center will continue to create innovative new products, as it continues to provide solid support for the future of the Mitsui Kinzoku Group.
