Materials > PTFE Glass
PTFE coated glass has become established as one of the highest quality architectural membranes for tensile fabric structures. The structural element is a cloth woven from very fine glass filaments. The coating, based on Teflon, was developed by DuPont in the 1960’s and has been used on structures since the early 1970’s.
PTFE glass is a low maintenance fabric which is perfect for large complex structures.
With a 30+ year design life, chances are a structure built with PTFE glass would be removed before ever being replaced. Its tensile strength is very impressive and it does not become brittle or discolour with age.
PTFE glass is completely chemically inert and resistant to moisture and micro-organisms. Rain on the Teflon outer layer cleans it – every time. Once installed, PTFE glass cloth is actively bleached by UV light, which gives the effect of a lasting bright white appearance.
Applications include: stadiums, exhibition spaces, museums, transportation hubs, leisure and retail.
