For more than 50 years Japan is well known as a technologically very advanced country and it is not surprising that the technical ceramic and in particular silicon nitride ceramics have a long tradition there. The first significant developments for the technically demanding sintering of silicon nitride ceramics have been done in Germany and Japan. Meanwhile Japan is by far the largest producer of silicon nitride ceramics. Therefore, it was extremely important for AlzChem with its silicon nitride powders - Silzot® - to exihibt at this show.
Besides mostly Japanese companies also Chinese-Taiwanese as well as European companies presented high-tech ceramic products at this show. Many visitors came to AlzChem's booth to learn more about Silzot® silicon nitride powders. With this successful exhibition AlzChem was able to start the first steps towards new business acquisition in the Far East.
