Creating Surface Possibilities

MEC Co., Ltd. contributes to the advancement and sophistication of
electronics products through the creation of “surface,”
the interface where a substance has contact with another substance.

The surface has a substantial impact on the performance of electronics products.
In forming an electronic circuit, adhesion between copper and resin is highly important.

Our products dramatically improve adhesion strength by melting or reforming a metal surface to
give added value, thereby creating the interface surface at which the metal is bonded to resin or other metal.

Resin-to-metal bonding technology “AMALPHA”

AMALPHA is
MEC's proprietary metal surface treatment technology designed for direct metal to resin bonding.
It is a technology developed by applying the copper surface treatment technology that MEC has long cultivated
in chemicals for electronic substrates.

By forming optimal metal surfaces,
AMALPHA enables strong metal-to-resin bonding without the use of an adhesive.
It is aimed at expanding the business in areas other than electronic substrates.

The name AMALPHA was coined by combining AMA,
representing Amagasaki City, Hyogo Prefecture, where our headquarters are located, and ALPHA,
symbolizing the “best” technology.
