EEJA developed this new technology based on the idea that a plating method that deposits metallic crystals from a water solution at under 100 degrees Celsius will make it possible to form low-resistance wires using a low-temperature process.
EEJA plans to begin sample shipments of the photosensitive primer, colloid catalysts, and electroless plating solution used with this technology by end of this year.
EEJA will display this technology at its booth and will have a special panel display at 7H-29 in East Hall 5 during the show.
EEJA has developed a cyanide-free electroless plating solution LECTROLESS IGS2020 for printed circuit boards, with lead supply starting in June 2014.

Until now, EEJA has established product sales and technical support functions in South Korea, and exported plating solution manufactured in Japan.
By capturing the expanding demand in South Korea's active liquid crystal market through the local production and supply by Heesung Metal, EEJA aims to increase its share of liquid crystal driver IC gold plating solution from the current level of 60% to approximately 80% by 2015, with the goal of 12 billion yen in annual sales.
In its efforts to develop substitutes to less precious metals and other metal materials, EEJA had provided PALLADEX PC-100 palladium-cobalt alloy plating solution, which is the predecessor of PALLADEX PC200.
EEJA plans a sales target of PALLADEX PC200 at 2 million yen per month.
In order to resolve these issues, EEJA has successfully developed the POSFER-E Series by fundamentally modifying the structure of the plating equipment such as reducing the number of cups by providing faster plating using a high current density, and adopting a dual arm robot to increase the efficiency of transportation.
EEJA will sell the POSFER-E Series mainly in Japan and the United States, and aims for annual sales target of 1.2 billion yen.
To coincide with the launch of the POSFER-E Series, EEJA has concluded a distributor agreement with Tanaka Kikinzoku International K.K.
