Insulectro, a leading supplier of materials for use in the PCB and printed electronics industries, will introduce a new supplier, Shikoku Chemicals Corporation, at IPC APEX EXPO to augment its highly successful chemistry line.

 “I am proud to announce the addition of Shikoku Chemicals to the Insulectro family of high performance materials. Shikoku is a globally recognized manufacturer of organic solderability preservatives (OSP) and Advanced Pretreatments,” announced Ken Parent, Insulectro Vice President of Sales & Product Management. “As a complement to our existing Focus Tech process chemicals, Shikoku will strengthen Insulectro’s supply chain by more completely meeting customers’ chemistry needs.”

Shikoku Chemicals Corporation manufactures and sells chemical products and housing materials in Japan, the US, and internationally. Its product portfolio includes inorganic chemicals, organic chemicals, advanced and specialty chemicals, electronic chemicals, and laboratory products. The company was founded in 1947 in Japan.

Koji Saeki, General Manager for Shikoku’s Electronic Chemicals Sales Department commented, “We are pleased to align ourselves in North America with a distributor of Insulectro’s stature. In a brief amount of time, our relationship has grown due to our shared vision. I look forward to meeting customers at IPC APEX EXPO in a few weeks and acquainting them with the Shikoku product line.”

In addition to Shikoku, Insulectro is a longtime distributor of Focus Tech process chemicals and control solutions to various manufacturing industries with an emphasis on PCB fabrication and chemical milling operations. 

Michelle Walsh, Insulectro Director of Product Management stated, “Focus Tech has a well established stable of process products and also is able to quickly and effectively formulate custom products for customer specific applications.  With the addition of Shikoku chemicals to our portfolio, Insulectro now offers even more cutting edge products, technical service, and quick turnaround through our network of 10 stocking locations in North America.

“Specifically, Insulectro will distribute Glicoat-SMD F2 (LX), a popular fine surface finish for PCBS and Glibrite GB-4300, a roughening solution that promotes the adhesion of Dryfilm and solder mask resists,
