Exploring new businesses
centered on FPDs

The Information & Electronics Division I provides services to a wide array of customers all over the world. We supply materials such as polarizing films, electronic parts for backlight units, encapsulant for light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and materials for special-use tape for liquid crystal displays (LCDs). Our customers are mainly the flat panel display (FPD) industry dealing with LCDs and organic LEDs (OLEDs), as well as the LED-related industry.
Our major strengths are our capability to propose ideas that go one step beyond expectations, based on our highly specialized knowledge, as well as a solid record of building supply chains and offering various processing services. In addition to further strengthening customer relations in Japan, we are also focused on expanding business with overseas manufacturers in countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea, and U.S., in the fields of LCDs and OLEDs.
With these businesses at the core, we will continue to seek opportunities in new fields as well, taking advantage of our existing customer network.

  • LED encapsulant business - from product development, manufacturing, and inspection to customer support

    Since LED encapsulant manufacturing and sales business was acquired from Henkel Japan Ltd., Information & Electronics Division I has been responsible for IK-brand product development, manufacturing, quality control, and customer service, all under one roof.
    In 2017, Inabata Optech Co., Ltd. was founded as a 100% subsidiary for product development and quality control. New products are being developed with a focus on encapsulant resins and adhesives for opto semiconductors.
    Inabata’s encapsulant materials have been well-received for LED full-color display applications.

    Encapsulant resin for LEDs, opto semiconductors
    • Die attached adhesives
      (One component type @frozen)
    • Epoxy liquid encapsulant for DIP, SMD and Display (Two component type @RT)
    • Light Diffuser agents
    • Visible light cutting resins for IR sensors
    Mold release agents (silicone type)
    • LED molds
    • Engineering plastics molds
    • Molds
    • Other external release agents
  • Semiconductor business

    The division is strengthening sales of driver IC chips for LCD panels. Furthermore, it focuses on the substrate business for power semiconductors and actively expanding sales of substrates for 5G applications in the Chinese market. Going forward, the division aims to expand the chip and wafer business.

  • Aggressive business expansion into the automotive field

    The division has started handling light control films attached to sunroofs, etc. It has also started providing OLED lights and decorative films for automotive interiors.
