Coating Resins and Additives

ZEFFLE Series consist of water based and solvent based resin system for high-performance coatings. They are designed to meet most severe outside specifications for building and heavy duty constructions. Beyond film performance, ZEFFLE series offer versatile applications mode while drastically reducing maintenance operation. 


Features of ZEFFLE

Weatherability, color retention, and chemical resistance are a prerequisite for architecture coatings. Paint producers expect the most performing binders, to stand the very demanding specifications for outdoor use. However, formulating protective and decorative coatings for building and construction may require to go beyond the film performance. Coatings formulators are looking to offer more application and schedule flexibility to the operator whether it is on-site or in-factory. Additionally, societal and environmental concerns push paint producers to formulate low maintenance coatings delaying the need for repainting.

ZEFFLE Series resins and additives systems are fluoro-based solutions developed to formulate outstanding architectural coatings up to 20 years.

DAIKIN developed this full range of binders offer several options to formulators looking for:

- Exceptional weatherability
- Water and soil repellency
- Resistance to corrosion
- Dirt pick-up
- Adhesion to a wide range of substrates
- Heat resistance
- Chemical resistance
- VOC regulation compliance

ZEFFLE range is composed of:
- ZEFFLE GK: a solvent-based binder for the demanding specification and extreme conditions

- ZEFFLE SE: a water-based resin, formulated to meet low VOC regulation

Benefits of ZEFFLE

The coatings developed with ZEFFLE are suitable for an extensive range of substrates including steel, copper, aluminum as well as concrete, wood, plastics, glass and more. They also allow for formulation in a wide range of sheens, from gloss to matte finishes, and a rich palette of colors.
Coatings formulated with ZEFFLE can be heat cured in factory or air cured at ambient temperature whether in cold winter or hot summer. It provides unprecedented flexibility for the applicators as it allows for a high-performance coating to be applied whether on site and or in-factory to adapt to an elaborate production schedule or to limit delays. Also, ZEFFLE formulations enable for a Factory-applied coating to be touched up on the field with color and shine match coatings
DAIKIN engineers developed ZEFFLE solutions to bring top-notched protection on performance, applicability, having in mind economic concerns and low maintenance feature. The result of life cycle cost comparison is particularly striking with a total system cost 3 to 6 time more economical than other paints such as Alkyd or Polyurethane.
ZEFFLE solutions have years of proven track records in Building and Construction, as well as in Industrial applications such as tanks, oils and gas pipes or coil coatings.
DAIKIN Experts are available to discuss the most demanding formulation projects throughout the world.
