PTFE (polytetrafluroethlyene) coated high-translucency fabric is a dynamic tensile material. PTFE fabric is unmatched when it comes to its aesthetics and durability. This makes it ideal for large scale roof and tensile membrane structures. PTFE coating is chemically inert and capable of withstanding a wide range of temperatures and any climate. As a result, the low-surface adhesion properties in the PTFE structures easily cleaned by rainwater and immune to UV radiation.
PTFE fabric membranes provide exceptional strength and durability. These features allow designers the ability to push the envelope of design and realize extraordinary results. Structurally, PTFE fiberglass fabric is waterproof, resists UV rays and is chemically inactive. As a result, it is exceptionally stain resistant and easy to clean. PTFE fabrics can reflect as much as 60 percent of visible light. This gives building owners and developers a cost-effective, low-maintenance option that looks great year after year.
PTFE fabric’s nonstick attributes, when coated with titanium dioxide (TiO2) photo-catalyst, produce self-cleaning properties that are superior to conventional PTFE coating. A self-cleaning action called the Photocatalytic decomposition process occurs as the TiO2 causes any organic matter (stain or pollutant) to decompose through simple oxidation. The residue does not adhere to the surface and is washed away by occasional rinsing or naturally with rain.
PTFE high-translucency fabric is ideally suited for all commercial and retail market sectors. By evenly dispersing daylight, this material is a very attractive option for facilities such as shopping malls, auto dealerships, sports, or office complexes where interior landscaping is present. Inside tensile translucent roof systems, plants have the opportunity to grow more naturally. This tensile roof material provides a great stage for dramatic illumination. With the fabric membranes highly reflective coating, PTFE fabric serves as a beautiful backdrop for night time, interior lighting, or for graphic displays for advertising or brand awareness.
