Chemicals Division

Reliable supplier of a wide range of basic chemicals

JX Metals Trading handles a wide range of commonly used basic chemical products, such as inorganic chemicals, organic chemicals, petrochemicals and products in gas form.
   We are one of the largest dealers in Japan by volume in sulfuric acid, a byproduct of nonferrous smelting and a key inorganic chemical.
   Another nonferrous smelting byproduct, granulated copper slag, is sold by the Company as raw material for cement, construction material, aggregate and sandblasting.

Large portfolio of functional chemicals

JX Metals Trading sells the hydrocarbon solvent NS Clean (along with a complete cleaning system employing this solvent) as an alternative to solvents containing chlorine. This is one of the environment-friendly solution-type products we aggressively market in Japan and overseas.
   We also trade in safe, healthy and environment-friendly green tea extract, and iodine, one of the few natural resources found in abundance in Japan. Iodine is used in a wide range of medical and healthcare-related applications.

Basic chemicals

Sulfuric acid
Sulfuric acid is a basic chemical product which is used in a wide range of applications, notably manufacture of resins, synthetic fibers, paper, steel, fertilizers, inorganic chemicals and foodstuffs.
   The Company handles concentrated, fuming, or refined sulfuric acid, as well as all kinds of diluted sulfuric acid, offering solutions of precisely the right concentration to suit customer needs. No matter what the product type, customer location or batch size, we ensure reliable deliveries.

Functional chemicals

Hydrocarbon-based detergent NS Clean
The hydrocarbon-based cleaning fluid NS Clean, developed as an alternative to trichloroethylene, methylene chloride and other chlorine-based solvents, is safe for both humans and the natural environment. It is also an efficient cleaning agent, which can be processed for reuse multiple times.
   NS Clean is suitable for "green procurement" and the ISO 14001 certification. The Company sells this product across Southeast Asia, with a marketing network supported by warehousing and logistics facilities in Shanghai, Shenzhen (China) and Taiwan, which serve as stockholding points. We also suggest ways of combining cleaning equipment with NS Clean, in a way that is carefully matched to each customer's needs.
(NS Clean is a registered trademark of JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation.)

Green tea extract
We trade in a wide variety of green tea extracts with deodorizing, antibacterial and anti-oxidizing properties, including Camellia 50EX, a high-purity type soluble in water.

Iodine has a wide range of applications, being used in catalysts, polarizing film for LCD panels, contrast agents for X-rays and pharmaceutical intermediates. In resource-poor Japan, this is one substance that is found in abundance, making the country the world's second-largest producer after Chile.

Flame retardant and smoke suppressant

Flame retardant and smoke suppressant
JX Metals Trading sells the “Kemgard® products” which are inorganic and environment-friendly flame retardants made by Huber Engineered Materials in USA.
    The greatest characteristic of the Kemgard® products is the "Char Formation" which brings out the function of flame retardant and smoke suppressant.
    The Kemgard® products are characterized by patented processes in which the molybdates are precipitated on an inert core, and that mechanism makes it possible to prevent the polymer from the heat and oxygen by char forming.
    The Kemgard® products are widely used for non-halogen and replacement of antimony oxide not only in USA but also in Japan, by compounding the resins such as epoxies, rubbers and other polymers.

Thermally conductive alumina fillers
The Martoxid® TM product series from, Huber Engineering Materials are, thermally conductive alumina fillers. The Martoxid® TM products are applied to various applications around the world. They are compatible with synthetic resins (epoxies, phenolics, acrylics, urethanes and silicones etc.), thermoplastic resins, elastomers and rubbers.
    Martoxid® TM products feature optimized surface treatments and particle size distributions which allow for high loadings and low viscosity for your application.
    Alumina, which is chemically stable and provides isotropic properties (in-plane and through-plane), will be your ideal material contributing to thermal management of electronic components effectively.
