Nihon Superior Co., Ltd.

Our lead-free solder accounts for more than 20% of the global market.

Our lead-free solder accounts for more than 20% of the global market. As enforcement of the RoHS Directive requiring lead-free solder drew near in the late 1990s, we developed Sn-Cu-Ni solder (product name: SN100C) with our own technologies and sold it to many electrical manufacturers. We now produce 400 tons monthly. Along with solder containing silver, our product has become the industry standard. As the market is shifting toward lead-free solder without silver (non-silver solder), we will promote our products such as the highly reliable SN100CV, evolved from SN100C, to the auto, infrastructure, semiconductor industries which we have less experience with.

[Company strength]
When enforcement of the RoHS Directive requiring lead-free solder drew near in the late 1990s, we developed Sn-Cu-Ni solder (product name: SN100C) with our own technologies and sold it to many electrical manufacturers. We now produce 400 tons monthly (market share of 20%). Along with SAC 305 (Sn – 3.0Ag – 0.5Cu), solder containing silver, the product has become the industry standard. At our R&D Center established in 2005, our R&D Department and Evaluation Engineering Department conduct research and development on new products to meet customers’ needs, and make prototypes, analyses and evaluations to help solve customers’ issues.

[Business description]
We started as a seller of unique flux imported from the USA in 1966, and have contributed to society by introducing new soldering and brazing technologies and products imported from all over the world to the industries of Japan. We have developed manufacturing and sales bases not only in Japan but also Asia and Europe based on our know-how of joining by soldering and brazing. Committed to high reliability and top-quality products, we respond to diversifying, sophisticated needs as well as environmental conservation.

[Industry]
Manufacture and sale of non-ferrous metal joining material 

[Strength of products/technologies]
We have three key products in addition to SN100C lead-free solder: 
Bobbinless resin flux cored solder: removing the bobbin reduces not only waste material but also waste energy.
ALUSAC-35 (Lead-free solder for aluminum): Lead-free solder alloy that reduces galvanic corrosion (electrolytic corrosion), a typical issue when joining aluminum and other metal. This enables the soldering of aluminum wire harnesses and terminals used in automobiles.
SN100CV: It maintains long-term reliability after soldering thanks to great resistance against strength deterioration caused by thermal load.


[Representative's message]
The three human skills of technology, sales and promotion have been passed down by the founder of Nihon Superior Co., Ltd. since its establishment. With the motto of “safety, trust and integrity”, we are committed to satisfying the increasingly diverse and sophisticated needs of customers. We have focused on developing eco-friendly lead-free solder and other materials with high reliability. We aim to improve customers’ satisfaction by improving the quality of solder, from material selection to processing and finishing with the users. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
To respond to the call for “local production for local needs,” we provide a range of manufacturing and sales services with offices and manufacturing facilities in Southeast Asia (Singapore, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam), China (Shanghai, Suzhou, Dongguan and Taiwan) and USA (sales only). We have patents with “SN100C” registered in 22 countries mainly in Europe, the USA and Asia and have partnership contracts with 15 companies for global expansion.

[Market share/Ranking]
More than 20% of the global share
