UV Tape

UV tapes are ultraviolet-curable adhesive tapes used to process semiconductor wafers. Since we began development of ultraviolet curing technology in 1984, Furukawa Electric's UV-curable tape has been highly acclaimed by our customers.

MCPET is a micro cellular material that provides high overall and diffuse reflectivity from our advanced foaming technology.

In the 21st century, energy efficiency is a priority in all environments. With lighting consuming vast amounts of power, enhancing products through highly efficient reflectors ensures maximum light out for power in.

Furukawa Electric is the first to commercially produce highly reflective, energy-saving foamed sheets made of extra-fine, foamed polyethylene terephthalate MCPET.


Designed for use with fluorescent lighting, facade lighting and indoor advertising signage, Furukawa's microcellular PET reflective sheets:

  • Achieves 99% overall reflectivity in comparison to Barium sulfate.
  • Achieves 96% increase in diffused reflection in comparison to Barium sulfate.
  • Improves visual impact of light by balancing blue and red light reflection equally.
  • Sharply reduce unwanted striping and blurring, which naturally occurs in conventional signage through the diffusive element achieved by the cellular structure.
  • Ideal for lighting fixtures and signage whether the light source is LED or Fluorescent.
  • Punching, bending, and thermoform are possible
