1st Update on supply situation of AEROSIL® from Yokkaichi plant, Japan

  • The production of AEROSIL® continues on a reduced level.

  • The Inventories and secured production capacity is sufficient to supply all regular AEROSIL® demands until end of February. For March we have initiated actions to secure continuing production independent of the situation at Mitsubishi Materials Corporation.

  • Because of the reduced production situation a dedicated order processing scheme was established. Until further announcement orders following a regular order pattern with scheduled delivery within 2 to 3 weeks into the future are confirmed.

  • Globally available capacities and existing inventory allow to compensate the currently reduced supply ex Nippon Aerosil Company Ltd plant.

We will keep you continuously informed as new information becomes available.
