Drawing on more than a century of expertise in the development
and fabrication of advanced materials,
we will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society
through continuous technological innovation. Established in 1884 Furukawa is now a global company manufacturing many diverse products for use in a wide range of industrial applications. With factories and sales offices in many countries we can support and supply to our customers no matter where they are.
For the lighting market we supply highly reflective sheet material called MCPET and MCPOLYCA. This is being used extensively for a wide range of lighting applications, from small modules through to large luminaires. The benefits that it brings are a high level of performance reflecting light but at the same time being very diffuse, this prevents the products from having hotspots of light on diffuser surfaces. It is very light weight and the properties enable designers to create compact and low profile products that are highly efficient.
Another area that we work in is the dissipation of heat through thermal solutions such as heat sinks and heat pipes. With standard and bespoke products available we can provide highly effective solutions that are light weight and highly effective taking heat from the light source rapidly.
Generally these products are focusing on 100watt or over but this depends on the customers requirements. Furukawa has created a passive 500watt solution for the latest in high power COB light sources.
