Eco-friendly Products

Environment friendly capacitors

Nippon Chemi-Con always considers the environment in product materials, designs and manufacturing. In fact, our factories already have received ISO 14000 certificate. Cadmium, Mercury, Hexavalent Chromium, PBB and PBDE have never been used in our products. Furthermore, lead-containing materials have been eliminated from all our aluminum electrolytic capacitors including Conductive Polymer Aluminum Solid Capacitors to comply with RoHS. If you need "Halogen-Free" products, please consult with us.
