Automotive

In the next decades, miles traveled in vehicles will rise faster than sales of light-duty vehicle themselves. DAIKIN produces Fluoro based material solutions to improve the efficiency, safety, and comfort of combustion, electric vehicles and future mobility challenges.

INDUSTRY TRENDS

To address contemporary mobility challenges, the race for innovation has become complex

As more electric self driving vehicles are on the road, the short-term evolution of combustion engines and electric vehicles is a key question for many car producers. Emission regulations promote new fuel blends and systems to improve fuel efficiency, allowing for continued development of the combustion engine. 

It requires for the automotive producers and Tiers to be on every innovation edge, ready to deploy the solution needed now. The agility of reliable partner's across various disciplines is the only way for them to stay behind the wheel of new mobility challenges.

With electric vehicles, car sharing and fuel efficiency in mind, DAIKIN has developed an extensive portfolio of material solutions. DAIKIN offers a comprehensive range of solutions to address the challenges presented in the automotive industry trends.

APPLICATIONS

DAIKIN provides best-in-class fluoro-materials to the automotive supply chain across a wide range of applications. DAIKIN's products and technologies provide superior heat and chemical resistance, weatherability, fuel permeation resistance, plus lubricant and additive resistance.

Oxgen sensor

Oxgen sensor

An O2 sensor is the sensor with gauging the quantity of oxygen in the exhaust gas. And it's an necessary item to improve fuel efficiency. To be loaded on a part near an engine, heat-resistance as well as fuel resistance are also needed, so the fluoro material is used.
Fluoroelastomer is used for a busch and fluoropolymer is used for a harness part.

Injector o-ring

Injector o-ring

An injector is a fuel injection system of a gasoline engine. Due to requirment of heat resistance, fuel resisntace and low temperature property, fluoroelasotmer is used. 

Filler neck hose

Filler neck hose

A filler neck hose is the hose connected between a fuel tank cap and a fuel tank. For fuel to pass, the fluoro resin which has excellent low fuel permeability is used. 

Crank shaft seal

Crank shaft seal

A crank shaft seal (oil seal) is loaded on an engine part and is a used part for the purpose of stopping oil leak from inner layer. Due to touch an oil, the fluoroelastomer is used.

Automotive air conditioning compressor

Automotive air conditioning compressor

The compressor is used to make the process which is a refrigerant circulation in the air conditioner system easily. Low frictionality is given by using fluoro coating for a piston part. 

OUR SOLUTION

Fluoropolymers

Fluoropolymers

Fluoropolymers are widely used because of their unique non-adhesive and low friction properties as well as their superior heat, chemical and weather resistance and superior electrical properties.

Fluoroelastomers

Fluoroelastomers

DAI-EL fluoroelastomer products provide excellent high temperature and aggressive fluids resistance in sealing and fluid transport applications.

Fluoro Coatings

Fluoropolymer Coatings

DAIKIN’s fluoro coatings allow for the users to enhance the processability of the products and to impart improved characteristics to the final parts.
