Business Overview


The Shin-Etsu Group's rare earth magnets are used in a wide range of applications including automobile motors, industrial robots, home appliances and hard disk drives. We also develop and provide photoresists, photomask blanks, encapsulation materials and pellicles that are used in the semiconductor manufacturing process. We have also successfully launched the world’s first mass production of synthetic quartz products, used as a substrate for photomasks. Furthermore, we successfully developed liquid fluoroelastomers.*

*Employs silicone addition reaction technology and hardens into a flexible solid synthetic rubber upon heating. Offers outstanding functionality and processability, and far more resistance to cold, oil, solvents and chemicals than conventional products. This material is expected to be applied in a wide range of fields, from automobiles and aircraft to electronic equipment and optical applications.
