Message from Top Management

Kyoto Elex possesses technologies enabling us to variously control the configuration and size of the metal and glass powders comprising conductive pastes and their combination with resin. In response to customer needs, we can identify, commercialize, and supply optimal solutions from among the limitless combinations of organic and inorganic materials. If there is no appropriate resin available, we can create an original material by making use of the abilities of DKS Co. Ltd. (for organic chemistry) and DOWA Electronics Materials Co., Ltd (for inorganic chemistry). In the quest for redoubled understanding and support, we look forward to resolving the full range of your unique wants and needs.
