AGC (Asahi Glass Co., Ltd.; Head office: Tokyo; President & CEO: Kazuhiko Ishimura) hereby announces that its high-performance fluoropolymer film [Fluon® ETFE Film] will be used for the Japan pavilion Zi Can Dao in the Expo 2010 Shanghai China, which is scheduled to be held in 2010.

The Japan pavilion was designed intended to give an image of a structure that breathes like a living organism.Due to its unique features, the building was named “Zi Can Dao (purple silkworm island).” It combines traditional Japanese knowledge for living in harmony with the environment, such as ennoshita (the utility space under verandas) and uchimizu (the sprinkling of water by hands to reduce heat) with the latest environmental control and materials technology.
[Fluon® ETFE Film], which will be used as membrane material in this pavilion, is a film produced from high-performance fluorores, which AGC manufactures through integrated production including all materials. With its excellent heat resistance, chemical resistance, non-adhesive characteristics, electric properties, weatherability, and transparency, [Fluon® ETFE Film] has been widely used in the fields of electronics, aerospace and solar cells, in the kitchen, wallpaper, greenhouses, and other situations since its launch in 1975. In recent years, [Fluon® ETFE Film] has been also used increasingly as a construction material, mainly overseas; examples include the Allianz-Arena football stadium in Munich, Germany, and swimming pools, general exercise grounds, and similar facilities in Beijing, China.
