Automotive market is in a time of changes based on the trend of connected, shared, autonomous and electrification. DAIKIN provides Fluoro based material solutions to improve the efficiency, safety, and optimization of combustion engine, electrification challenges.

Daikin fluorochemical solutions for automotive internal combustion engines (ICE)


According to the CASE trend (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electrification), many variety of innovation is happened in automotive, such as MaaS.


Many car producers focus on the evolution of electrification and autonomous technologies which require the development of battery and E-powertrain like motor, and comfort of interior. On the other hand, the short-term evolution of ICE is also a key challenge. Emission regulations promote to accelerate not only electrification like MHEV, HEV, PHEV, BEV but also ICE optimization like downsizing engine, new engine oil / transmission oil and new fuel blends.


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 electrification, autonomous, connected, shared 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.

    Internal combustion engine 

    (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.

    (Turbo charger hose)

    A turbocharger is a used to improve the heat efficiency of an internal combustion engine. The hose which connects with the turbocharger is called a turbocharger hose. For air with high temperature and pressure to pass in the hose, fluoro material is used for the inner layer. The acid resistant function is also requested by EGR (exhaust recirculation).

    According to the autonomous and connected, many sensors like Lidar sensor, camera sensor sensor is necessary. For reliability, anti fouling and anti reflection on lens surface are required. Anti-smudge coating can provide the additional value.



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.


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

Anti-smudge Coatings

OPTOOL is an anti-smudge coating for specifically engineered-to-protect display, optical, and glass surfaces.
