Daikin to establish production facility for ZEFFLE fluoropolymer coatings
Published October 12, 2011
Daikin Industries, Ltd. has established a new production facility for the manufacture of ZEFFLE fluoropolymer coatings at the Changshu Factory of its subsidiary Daikin Fluorochemicals (China) Co. Ltd., a company that manufactures and sells fluorochemical products in China. Mass production is scheduled to start June 2013 at a planned capital investment of approximately 1.2 billion yen. This new production facility combines with the Yodogawa Plant in Japan (Settsu, Osaka Prefecture) and Daikin Fluoro Coatings (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. in China to make three production sites for the manufacture of fluoropolymer coatings. Upon completion, production capacity will approximately triple to meet the expected rise in demand. ZEFFLE fluoropolymer coatings excel in the areas of anti-fouling and weather-resistance, which are special characteristics of fluorine compounds.
