Mitsui Kinzoku


We employ corporate venture capital (CVC)
as a tool to create new businesses.

We will create new markets by combining our strengths
(core technologies, know-how, and sales channels)
with external strengths
(customers, partner companies, etc.).

Core Technology

We have three distinctive technological edges
to offer to help our partners develop
advanced materials for the future.

  • MaterialCharacter

    Mitsui Kinzoku offers a wide range of technological solutions through the approach of altering material properties: Using appropriate methods, we develop new alloys suited for a particular use, change metals into non-metal materials, and design metal-resin composites. With a wealth of knowledge in materials and expertise in material design and powder control technology, we will explore even more opportunities to offer solutions.

  • MaterialSurface

    Mitsui Kinzoku specializes in surface treatment. We add nano-sized active components to the surface of a material to develop a catalyst that performs a chemical function, or apply a coating to the surface of a material to provide it with insulation properties. We are searching for applications in which our unique surface technology can effectively fulfill customers' requirements.

  • MaterialShape and Size

    Mitsui Kinzoku also has a competitive edge in material processing technology. We are a global leader of ultra-thin electrodeposit copper foil in development and production through our established technology that can stably mass-produce MicroThinTM copper foil. We are also capable of altering the shape and size of particles, including increasing their size and introducing additional complexity into their shape. We hope to offer our shape-engineering technology and capability to stably mass-produce innovative products to more industry sectors.


Mission, Vision, Value

"If only there was a material with such a property"
"What material will enable us to implement this technology?”
”Is there any way to reduce costs?”

Mitsui Kinzoku is here to help developers and engineers who squarely face a range of challenges such as these on a daily basis.
We have a track record of leveraging "encounters" with different fields, novel technologies and unique processes to bring forth new businesses.
We are willing to collaborate with you to develop new businesses and products through the synergy between your needs and our technologies and resources.
