SKC presented semiconductor and battery materials at CES

SK Group’s chemicals and materials business, SKC Co, unveiled a range of new products at CES. At the tech show, which took place in Las Vegas in January, the Koreans unveiled a semiconductor glass substrate, copper foil for batteries and bioplastics, among other products. The glass substrate, described by SKC as a “milestone in development” for semiconductor production, was presented to the public for the first time at CES. SKC is investing around 600 million US dollars in the construction of a glass substrate plant in the US state of Georgia. Glass substrate is the name given to a thin layer of glass on which computer chips are created. It requires less space than plastic or silicone-based substrates and enables the production of faster and more energy-efficient chips. SKC’s US offshoot Absolics Inc. will be the first company in the world to mass-produce this important starting material. Machines and equipment needed to manufacture products in these product categories generally require KC certification to be approved for import and sale in Korea.



Furthermore, SKC showed a new type of copper foil for the production of EV batteries at CES. The SK Nexilis foil business is able to produce copper foil with a thickness of only 4 micrometres. This corresponds to one-thirtieth of the thickness of a human hair. The foil is produced at a width of 1.4 metres and a length of 77 kilometres. According to SKC, this would be the world’s thinnest, widest and longest copper foil ever produced. With materials for anodes made of silicone, the company will introduce another component for EV batteries next year, the silicone is supposed to improve the range and charging speed. SKC is investing in the British battery material manufacturer Nexeon for this purpose and will work with them in development in the future. At CES, SKC participated in a food truck event serving alternative foods such as plant-based milk and meat substitutes. SKC provided disposable tableware made from biodegradable plastics for the event.
