Change notice for ceramic paper filters and related parts

Refractory ceramic fiber <RCF> was designated as a controlled substance by Japanese Government in November 2015 due to amendment of the related laws and regulations.

HAKKO ceramic paper filters

Our supplying ceramic paper filters are out of the regulations since they are made from binding processed <RCF> which does not generate particles. So, there is no problem to sell or use our providing ceramic paper filters.

However, the material manufacturers have discontinued their production as they were required special treatment and control to process and assemble <RCF>. We, therefore, have decided to switch to new ceramic paper filters which are made from 'BIO Filter' (biosoluble filter) and supply them as the replacements. They have the same performance as the previous ones in terms of life and absorption performance.

Changes of part numbers and prices

Please see the table below for the changes of the part numbers.
The existing parts will be replaced by the new ones as soon as the current stock runs out.
As for the new prices and the timing of the introduction of them, kindly ask your supplier.
