Dainichi Giken Kogyo, Daimaru Kogyo and Teijin have co-developed the “world’s first” non-halogenated, water-based, transparent acrylic FR coating for materials including wood, paper, fibres, rubber and plastics. Landex Coat Flame Retardant Clear uses Teijin’s FCX-210 non-halogenated organo-phosphorus flame retardant, which is widely used in electronics and automobile polymer applications. The Landex coating maintains colour and material texture, and improves weather and mould resistance, and can achieve UL94 VTM-0 fire rating on thin films. It is adapted to fire protection of wood and timber in construction, interior and exterior, which is a major challenge in Japan, where legislation since 2010 promotes the use of wood in public buildings. Dainichi Giken produces coatings and polymers in Showa for nearly 60 years. Daimaru Kogyo is a leading Japanese chemical trading company. Teijin is a Japan-based group active in films, resins, fibres, composites, healthcare and pharmaceuticals worldwide.
