Daikin is a Japanese multinational based in Osaka and founded in 1924. It operates in all continents. In 1963 Daikin developed its flagship fluoropolymer Neoflon®. Later, it invented the variable refrigerant volume coolant systems (VRV), an innovation with respect to the systems existing at that time, and launched them in 1982. Daikin continues to be the number one manufacturer of these systems. The air conditioning sector is perhaps the one best known by end consumers, but Daikin also has business units dedicated to hydraulic systems, defence systems and chemicals, divided into fluorocarbons, fluoroplastics and fluoroelastomers, among others.
The Daikin fluoropolymers applied by Coatresa include the iconic brands Polyflon® (PTFE) and the entire Neoflon® range, in PFA, FEP, PCTFE, CPT, ETFE and EFEP.
Neoflon® is the brand used by Daikin to market its fluoropolymers.
Polyflon® is the brand used by Daikin to market polytetrafluoroethylene, which is resistant to high temperatures and chemical agents. These properties are achieved thanks to its chemical structure, formed by carbon and fluorine atoms with high electronegativity. In addition, thanks to its low friction coefficient and excellent thermal, mechanical and electrical properties, it is suitable for an extensive range of demanding applications in the food, chemical and packaging sectors, among others.
The Polyflon® range is also available in powder and dispersion forms.
