OVERVIEW

Fluoroelastomers-Conceived from Fluorite

"Fluoroelastomers"
Conceived from Fluorite

Fluorite is the natural mineral used as raw material for DAI-EL and consists primarily of calcium fluoride (CaF2). As the starting material for a variety of fluorine products, it is the preferred flux for ore in the metallurgical industry. The word fluorite itself originates from the Latin word fluere, meaning to flow and derives its name for its ability to cause mineral flow. DAI-EL differs in its synthetic pathway (production method) from natural rubber, which is synthetized internally in plants, and diene rubber, which uses oil as a raw material, and is a fluoroelastomer that exhibits exceptionally sophisticated qualities.

  • SUPPLE TOUCH

    Suppleness You Want to Touch

    DAI-EL features a tactile sensation that feels good when touched. Compared to the tactile sensation of other raw materials, which vary depending on changes in mold design such as mirror or satin finish, DAI-EL achieves far greater suppleness and is an elastomer with just the right amount of mass and high-level performance.

  • DURABILITY

    Durability That Is Sustainable

    Because of its extremely high durability due to the performance of the fluorine compound, DAI-El fluoroelastomers have a physical property that resists quality deterioration. This allows the material to maintain its appearance and texture through long-term use. The rubber elastomer material also withstands sudden breakage, discoloration, and stickiness from hydrolysis to ensure long-term use and a comfortable feel.

  • COLOR VARIATION

    Colors That Appeal to People

    In using Daikin’s own tone technology, an assortment of colors is available. Because the fluoroelastors are manufactured in an environment with a high level of cleanliness, various color expressions are possible ranging from the extremely clear and vivid to the stylish and chic. Customers are also able to custom-order their own original colors.

PROPERTIES

Realization of High Functionality

Fluoroelastomers are not limited to a single function but rather intricately unite multiple functions. By combining carbon atoms and fluorine atoms (C-F bond), the bonded energy creates high performance that excels in a variety of areas in comparison to hydrocarbons.

APPLICATION

Application Diversity
Generating New Value

Use is possible for an array of applications including automobiles, fashion, interiors, kitchens, and healthcare. DAI-EL pursues color, materials, and finish (CMF) and can deliver a feel that no other material can match in tactile sensation.

TECHNOLOGY

High Value-Added
Material Inspiring Confidence

DAI -EL performance is built upon extensive research and experimentation and has been used worldwide in automotive par ts under harsh conditions for over half of a century. The high numerical values recorded in all of the test results for performance fur ther indicate the high value-added characteristic of this material.

HEAT RESISTANCE / OIL RESISTANCE
耐熱性 / 耐油性

Fluoroelastomers (FKM) can be used in rubber materials even under harsh conditions that reach temperatures of 230° C and are an elastomer that provides the best balance of heat and oil resistance. With fluorine atoms, heat and oil resistance improves due to high binding energy and low cohesive energy between molecules.

DISCLAIMER
免責事項

This product was developed as an industrial application and was not intended for medical or food-related applications. Furthermore, confirmation of biocompatibility is required for applications in which the product comes into human contact such as wearable items like a watchband made from a fluoroelastomer.
