Papermaking and New Materials Technology
Highly functional materials made from paper.
Utilizing FCC’s unique papermaking technology cultivated through the manufacturing of highly durable and highly heat-resistant friction materials, we provide highly functional paper substrates applicable to various products with raw material blending, structure control, and shape control technologies suitable to customer needs, contributing to higher functionality, lighter weight, and cost reduction of products.
Because FCC is a multidisciplinary manufacturer, we are able to handle the processes of folding, bonding, grooving, and forming into universal shapes in addition to paper processing.
The unique and porous structure of paper is highly applicable at a high level to various applications, such as heat insulation, insulation, radio wave absorption, filtration, and catalysts; in terms of thermal management, it can be applied to the development and manufacture of EVs and related products as well.
Using the friction material manufacturing technologies, we develop new materials in-house that create value in a variety of fields and manufacture them in small lots.

Paper Ceramics Technology
Forming Ceramics into Various Shapes
Forming in the Paper state provides the flexibility and ease of processing.
Ceramics with complex shapes are achieved at low cost by sintering through heat treatment after forming.
Porosity Control by Organic Content
The paper constituent contained in paper ceramics is burned off when heated.
The porosity is controllable by manipulating the size and number of pores created with the organic material is burned away.
Realization of Thin-Wall Ceramics
Formed from thin paper, thin sheet shapes are easily formed.
