The "heat resistance", "electrical properties", and "mechanical properties" of fluoropolymers are used in railroad cables and the like. We also have resins for paints and coatings that provide "weatherability".


Provides weatherability and stain resistance when used as an ingredient for coating for railway vehicle exteriors.

LUMIFLON® is the world first solvent-soluble fluoropolymer developed by AGC in 1982. LUMIFLON® is used as an ingredient for various types of paints and coatings (including corrosion protection and architectural application), the weatherability of fluoropolymer protects substrates and maintains an attractive appearance for a long time.

AFLAS® is used in cables and other components for automobiles.

AFLAS® is unique fluoroelastomer and has superior amine/base resistance and electrical insulation compared to conventional fluoroelastomers. AFLAS® is highly suitable for critical applications where reliability is required.

Fluon® ETFE

Fluon® ETFE is used in cables, hoses, and other components for automobiles.

Fluon®ETFE is a tough fluoropolymer that has chemical resistance and electrical properties comparable to typical fluoropolymers, such as PTFE, PFA and FEP but performs better than ECTFE or PVdF because of its improved mechanical strength and moldability.

Fluon® PTFE

Fluon® PTFE is used in cables, sliding parts, and other components for automobiles.

PTFE accounts for 60-70% of the total demand for fluoropolymers. Although discovered over 60 years ago, applications are still being explored in new fields due to its numerous desired properties such as inertness, lubricity and heat resistance.

Fluon® PFA

Fluon® PFA is used in cables and other components for automobiles.

Fluon® PFA is a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene (C2F4) and perfluoroalkoxyethylene. PFA retains inherent characteristics and similar properties to PTFE but can be processed using thermoplastic techniques, such as injection molding, extrusion, and blow molding.
