- Q8What is Daikin’s position in the fluorochemical business?
Daikin is a pioneer in the fluorochemical business in Japan. Since becoming the first to commercialize fluorochemical in the domestic market in 1933, we have produced gases, resins, gums, and many other types of materials; moreover, we have gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of the industry from research, development, and production of fluorine chemicals to the manufacture of innovative products. Today, Daikin produces more than 1,800 kinds of fluorine compounds. As the world’s second-largest producer of fluorine chemicals after DuPont in the U.S.A., Daikin is successfully meeting the needs of the market.
