  • This is a long selling product having uniform spherical particles resulting from the wet process.
  • A further reduction in the number of coarse particles is realized through combination with classification.
  • Due to the extraordinary particle surface smoothness of the wet process powder, it has become easier to achieve a high packing density.


  • Material for electrodes of multilayer ceramic capacitors
  • Conductive paste
