Daikin fluoropolymer coatings
OPTOOL and OPTOACE are innovative hydrophobic and oleophobic ranges of coatings developed by Daikin. Suitable for a wide range of substrates they protect the coated surfaces against damages caused, amongst other, by moisture, corrosion attacks, fingerprints marks, abrasive wear etc. These fluoro based surface modification technologies are suitable for various applications from automotive, electronics PCB, touchscreen display or bathroom ware, etc.

Fluoro based surface modification technologies

How to protect materials efficiently?

From electronic devices to bathroom ware, the challenge of a producer is to design reliable materials with reduced maintenance. How to improve electronic products reliability or boost touch screen response? How to reduce dirty screen effect or maintain a transparent substrate clean of fingerprints?

To protect components from external aggression such as moisture, oil, dirt or corrosion a producer must select the adapted surface treatment or protective coating.

More than hydrophobic coatings

In terms of surface modification techniques, fluoro polymer have proven their efficiency for many years. Due to their low surface energy, Fluoro coated parts are indeed water repellent. It offers an interesting barrier to humidity, the number one cause of substantial damages.

Case Studies from Fluoro based surface modification technologies

Excellent Amine Resistance Seal for Oil & Gas Industry

The oil and gas industry uses drilling equipment which has to bear high pressures and high-temperature muds coming out of the well. The drilling mud and other fluids contain many chemicals that can attack the O-rings and packer seals. The challenge here is to find a material that can withstand high temperatures, resist mud fluids and amines as well as equally resistant to fuel.

DAI-EL-BRE is a base resistant elastomer that offers excellent resistance towards fuels, acids, amines, coolant fluids, and mud fluids.

Excellent Resistant Seal for Automotive Coolant Fluid

Transmission fluids are now containing more aggressive additives than before. As a result, the seals for transmission fluids must be able to work under erosive conditions, higher temperature, and harsher environments. The challenge is to find material for sealing application, which has low-temperature flexibility as well as good fuel and base resistance.

DAI-EL-BRE from DAIKIN is a base resistant elastomer that provides an excellent cooling fluid resistance.

Remarkably Improved Resistant Seal for Automotive Engine Oil

The modern engine oils are becoming less viscous and contain several additives to improve efficiency. The conventional fluoroelastomer seals may not be compatible with newer additives. However, it has to bear the same harsh conditions, high temperatures, and erosive environments.

The elastomer DAI-EL BRE provides excellent amine and fuel resistance. It also has good flexibility at low temperatures and withstands high temperatures.
