Fluoropolymer Films

ETFE and PFA Fluoropolymer films from NOWOFOL

Our ETFE and PFA films are extremely durable! NOWOFOL's highly engineered fluoropolymer films are developed for architecture, industrial applications, as well as for use in the solar and photovoltaic industries.

NOWOFOL produces high-quality fluoropolymer films (e.g. ETFE, PFA, FEP, PVDF, THV etc.) for demanding applications. Fluoropolymer films are extremely robust films that guarantee resistance when it counts, even in extreme conditions such as severe weather conditions, very high or very low process temperatures, as well as in the use of chemicals. 

The fluoropolymer products from our company are constantly being further developed and refined with desired film properties, as well as specifically adapted to the requirements of our customers. Read more about our high-performance fluoropolymer films:

This is what distinguishes ETFE films

Films from ETFE are characterized mainly by

  • low weight  
  • high light transmission in the visible as well as in the IR and UV range
  • highest durability  
  • longevity.

NOWOFOL offers numerous film solutions from ETFE that are precisely adapted to your specific applications.

Classic applications of NOWOFLON ETFE films

Our fluoropolymer films from ETFE are primarily used

  • in architecture as a façade or a roof membrane,
  • in the solar industry (convection suspension for the performance of solar panels),
  • in the photovoltaic industry (surface protection for photovoltaic modules),
  • as a separation film in GRP and CRP component manufacturing,
  • as an anti-graffiti film in surface protection.

For each application, NOWOFOL offers specific ETFE films, which are adapted to customers requirements with regard to film width and thickness, as well as surface treatment.

PFA film: High-performance film for industrial applications

PFA combines the chemical properties of PTFE with the mechanical properties of thermoplastics. In practical terms, PFA films from NOWOFOL are fully fluorinated high-performance plastics that offer the highest resistance in extreme production conditions.

The most important features of our PFA films are:

  • High chemical resistance
  • High mechanical strength
  • High thermal stability
  • Weather and UV resistance
  • Excellent dielectric and cryogenic properties
  • Outstanding flame resistance

Classic applications for NOWOFLON PFA films

Thanks to the durability of PFA even under extreme strain, NOWOFLON PFA film solutions are successfully used in the following areas:

  • PFA film as welding film for PTFE and PTFE/Metall composite
  • lining film in the chemical industry
  • separation film from PFA for molding application
  • for the production of seals of the highest quality

Example of product innovation: Infrared absorbing ETFE film for architecture

NOWOFOL not only produces high-quality fluoropolymer films, but also continuously develops these film solutions. The benchmark of our innovation are the requirements of our customers. The ETFE film NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z-IR exemplifies NOWOFOL's innovative fluoropolymer films:

We have adapted our ETFE film for architecture (NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z) to the needs of architects and project developers and supplemented them with a revolutionary infrared absorbing property. Our roof and façade membrane film NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z-IR absorbs the infrared radiation responsible for heating buildings. This new feature allows buildings to stay cool longer and provide savings from reduced air conditioning demand. This is a clear advantage for ETFE constructions in warmer climates and sustainable building.
