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.

Maintain your surfaces clean, transparent and smooth with OPTOOL

Reduce maintenance and cleaning operation

Smartphone, camera lens, public information kiosk, or a vending machine are often facing the problem of unwanted fingerprints, water stains or smudges. It results in dirty aspect screens, microbial contamination or reduced optical properties of the touchscreen surfaces.

Whether the aim is to maintain a cleaner aspect, increase safety, improve slippery touch or reduce maintenance, the surface must be processed with a hydrophobic and oleophobic layer, that maintains the surface clarity of the substrate.

A breakthrough in Anti-fingerprint coating

A breakthrough antifinger print coating
See how it works
Daikin has developed surface modification treatment that provides wide range of technical advantages compared to conventional solutions.
The substrates treated with OPTOOL maintain the optical property and clean aspect longer with limited maintenance.

The unique structure of OPTOOL prevents sebum or oil to stick to the substrate. Not only the marks are less visible but they are easily wiped off.

Resistance to friction, heat and chemical

Compared to other solutions, OPTOOL also reduces abrasion wear, caused by friction in demanding every day use. In order to fit in various application OPTOOL is resistant to UV, heat an chemical.
