Use list of [Energy]
In addition to existing power generation fields, the "weatherability" and "heat resistance" of fluoropolymer products are useful in new energy fields such as solar power, wind power, and fuel cells. Also, these products contribute to energy-savings in the caustic soda and caustic potash manufacturing process.
Wind power generators
Used as a raw material for the paint in wind power generation facility towers and blades. Fluoropolymers' "weatherability" contributes to the long service life of the facility.
Fluoropolymers' "weatherability", "transparency", and "insulation" are useful in improving the performance of solar cells.
Fluorinated ion-exchange membrane
Caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) and chlorine are produced by salt electrolysis using an ion-exchange membrane. Fluorinated cation exchange membrane "Flemion™" has extremely low resistivity and contributes to the reduction of energy consumption.
Nuclear power generators
The "heat resistance" and "mechanical properties" of fluoropolymers are used for cables and other equipment at nuclear power generation plants.
Thermal power generators
The "heat resistance", "oil resistance", and "mechanical properties" of fluoropolymers are used for cables and other equipment at thermal power generation plants.
