Building and Construction

Building and Constructions players are already in the front line of the huge challenges of fast urbanization and growing population. Needless to say, this engagement must comply with environmental regulations and smarter energy consumption objectives.  Builders and specifiers of the segment can count on innovation partners such as DAIKIN and their technology to disrupt construction practices.

INDUSTRY TRENDS

In the next decades, the building and construction players will have to invest in robust infrastructures to support the rapid urbanization and the growing middle class. Habitat is also a key concern, as, by 2030, about 2 billion people will require housings that do not exist yet.

Fluorobased materials are essential to the building and construction industry, supplying high durability, UV resistance and anti-corrosion materials for coatings, roofing membrane or wire and cables.
DAIKIN provide the world with solutions and materials to overcome building and construction sustainability challenges through:

- Durability and robustness
- Safety
- Cost-efficiency
- Low maintenance
- Weatherability


Aiming at low maintenance and Near Zero-Energy Buildings

Fluoro-based materials enable more sustainable ways of living. DAIKIN's purpose is to help the industry reaching the near Zero-Energy Buildings (nZEB) objectives through innovations:
Membranes based on NEOFLON ETFE or POLYFLON PTFE fluoropolymers are used in the construction of large roofs. They protect the entertainment and sports facilities by providing a lightweight solution, resistant to harsh weather and durability.
To support renewal energies, lightweight ETFE films used on rigid solar modules, offer a higher light transmittance than glass and long-term weather protection. DAIKIN’s ZEFFLE resins present comparable protection for the backs of rigid solar modules.

OPTOOL is a thin transparent coating which preserves glass and sensitive surfaces from stains and fingerprint. The superior hydrophobicity and optical properties allow for a cleaner appearance longer to the modern building envelopes and interior designs.


Fluorobased solutions for safer and performing constructions

Coatings formulated with ZEFFLE resins offer long-term protection of up to 25 years to major construction projects in the world. They provide resistance to corrosion, dirt pick-up, self-cleaning properties and provide unprecedented application flexibility to operators.

NEOFLON FEP ensures the safe transfer of data by protecting cables and wire used in buildings air plenums. It maintains cables at a continuous service temperature of 200゚C, possesses low dielectric constant and passes the strict flammability requirements.

APPLICATIONS

Daikin offers a full range of solutions to support sustainability in building and construction.

Photovoltaic Solar cell

Photovoltaic Solar cell

Back Sheet:
Weather resistant resin ZEFFLE are used for surface protection of solar cell backsheet. They contribute to to efficient photovoltaic power generation by extending life of solar cells and reducing the power generation cost.

Front sheet:
NEOFLON ETFE films having excellent weather resistance and mechanical strength are used for surface protection of front sheet of solar cell.

Thin transparent coating

Thin transparent coating

Whether the application requires a cleaner surface, improved safety,
Increased slip, or reduced maintenance, a coating that is both hydrophobic and oleophobic is very valuable.
A vast array of solutions already exists to provide whether optical properties, water repellency or cleanability. However, it is a challenge for designer to balance all these benefits in a single solution.
Aiming at serving this wide range of needs, DAIKIN has developed a breakthrough technology named OPTOOL Series.
