Daikin has recently agreed to acquire Heroflon S.p.A., an Italian manufacturer of fluoropolymer compounds. Daikin will obtain all company shares owned by the Heroflon Executive Officers with finalisation of the acquisition planned for the end of October 2017 after completion of all necessary procedures.

        •        Heroflon is a compound manufacturer that produces high-performance fluoropolymers by combining various materials
        •        Its product line-up includes fluoropolymer compounds and micro-powders centring on polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) 
        •        PTFE is a highly functional and high value-added fluoropolymer used in a wide range of fields including the automotive, construction, electrical power, and chemical industries. Business operations centre on the European market

Daikin supplies various kinds of fluoropolymers such as PTFE to processing companies including compounders. With this acquisition, Daikin fully enters the compound business for fluoropolymers and will utilise its global network to expand sales of Heroflon's fluoropolymer compounds and micro-powders. The company also expects this acquisition to further strengthen its relationship with European car manufacturers together with sales expansion of fluoroelastomers and Automotive air conditioning refrigerant.

By accelerating product development that meets customer needs, Daikin expects to realise sales expansion of fluorinated materials for automobiles.

Moreover, with the automotive parts market shifting toward fluoropolymers to reduce weight, promote miniaturisation, and lower fuel consumption, Daikin aims to increase global sales of fluoropolymers and fluoroelastomers to 100 billion yen in 2020 by developing products corresponding to a greater need for functional enhancement, such as in heat and wear resistance, and providing technical services.
