Building Material of the Future –
ETFE in Architecture
Expressive and striking structures, visual subtlety and lightness, a fascinating play of light and colour – these are all hallmarks of the use of ETFE material in modern architecture. It would be difficult to find another material with the amount of light and UV-permeability as well as the self-cleaning effect which this material offers. Extremely lightweight, yet with a high resistance to acids and alkaline solutions, highly durable NOWOFLON ETFE films offer an especially attractive and economically advantageous building material. ETFE is almost completely recyclable, making it an important part of sustainable building practices.
in design and function
Generously-sized rooms without supports, minimal use of materials and environmentally responsible construction methods are all possible through the use of ETFE membranes. In addition, due to continuous improvement of the material itself, buildings and structures utilizing our films are setting new aesthetic and technical standards.
NOWOFLON ET film
High performer in snow and sun
NOWOFLON ET high performance films are applicable all over the world - 3000 meters above sea level or in the harsh climate of Kazakhstan. In spite of the fact that these films are extremely light and thin, they resist all weather conditions.
Neither tons of snow nor hail storms can destroy the structure of these strong performers. Now, with our new NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z-IR film, we can outsmart the sun too, as this film absorbs hot IR rays.
Whether it is used in single or multiple layers, printed or coloured, (NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z-C) or produced with the most innovative technical properties, (NOWOFLON ET 6235 Z-IR), ETFE films for architectural use offer an ever-increasing list of advantages. Membrane construction is providing an attractive alternative to contractors, and impressing visitors in areas where the classic glass construction is desired but perhaps not realistic due to economic or design factors. Creative architects are constantly discovering new uses and applications for this material – thus creating the future of architecture.
