The film is made of artificial high strength fluorine polymer (ETFE), and its unique anti-adhesion surface makes it highly anti-fouling and easy to clean.Usually, rain water can remove major dirt . ETFE film is a superior alternative material in transparent building structure. Over the years, it has been proved to be a reliable and economic roof material with many advantages in many projects.
● Corrosion resistance: It is free from any strong acid, alkali, oxidant and almost any solvent.
● Non-stick: The surface is smooth and transparent, does not adhere to any material.
● Light Weight: The film itself is light and requires less steel girders to support the structure, allowing more sunlight to enter
● Ageing resistance: Radiation resistance and low permeability, long-term exposure to the atmosphere, surface and performance remain unchanged
●Full Angle transmittance: Compared with other plastic films, ETFE has the greatest advantage of light transmittance at any Angle
ETFE (Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene) is a lightweight material that is a superb alternative to glass. It is a popular choice for applications where high light and UV transmission are required, such as:
ETFE Membrane demands less structural steel support than traditional glazed systems, resulting in an easier installation, and typically a lower cost alternative. It is often considered a value-engineered option over glass roofing.
ETFE membrane roofs can be supplied as a single layer membrane supported by a cable net system or as a series of pneumatic cushions made up of between two and five layers of ETFE.
