New value for industrial felts, based on advanced press felt manufacturing technology.
Industrial-use felt is a category pf high-performance products developed based on press felt production technologies, utilizing high-performance fibers featuring superior heat resistance and strength. Ichikawa’s industrial felt works to support sophisticated production centers around Japan and the world, including aluminum extrusion, printed circuit boards, and iron manufacture.
Products for each use
- Heat-resistant conveyance equipment:
For aluminum extrusion (THERMOTEX®)
Construction and precision parts sector aluminum extrusion lines require equipment capable of conveyance without scratching or bending aluminum cast at temperatures of 500℃or greater. Ichikawa’s Thermotex® is used widely in the aluminum extrusion industry for conveying high-temperature products.
- Heat-resistant cushioning material
Our Ace Board®, featuring heat resistance and stable
cushioning, is used for printed circuit boards and
construction materials, in which high-temperature press
molds are employed. Today, Ace Board® is broadly
available for various developing situation; such as
Next-generation communication standard （5th Generation）, Internet of Things（ IoT）, autonomous driving technology.
