Is Using ETFE Foils Eco-Friendly?

ETFE foils are high-performance roof building materials that can be used to construct semi-transparent, dramatic, and brilliantly illuminated roofs. This is why many architects all over the world use this material to make the most creative designs. Other than these design aspects, ETFE foils also offer environmental advantages. In fact, using these materials has helped builders in the U.S. achieve an LEED certification due to their energy efficiency and ability to provide outstanding light transmission. LEED stands for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design that is given by the U.S. Green Building Council, after rating buildings on environmental criteria like energy saving, reduction of emissions, indoor environmental quality, and water efficiency. Let us look at the various environmental friendly features that these foils provide, which have increased their popularity, resulting in the increasing number of ETFE suppliers in India.

All You Want To Know About ETFE Foil Cushions - Tuflite

ETFE foil roofs can be installed as a single layer supported by a cable net system, or as a series of cushions layered between 2 to 5 in number, supported in an aluminum perimeter extrusion, in turn supported by the main building frame. The ETFE cushions are kept continually pressurized by a small inflation unit, maintaining the pressure at 220 Pascal to give the foil structural stability and insulation. You can get the best-in-class ETFE cushions from Vector Foiltec under the brand name Texlon at Tuflite Polymers, their partners and the leading ETFE suppliers in India.

Why Is Polycarbonate The Best To Fill Indoors With Natural Light?

Speaking technically, polycarbonates are long-chain linear polyesters comprising of carbonic acid and dihydric phenols like bisphenol A.

Looking at the above equation, the two hexagons are phenyl groups, and the two CH3 are methyl groups. Both these groups contribute to the stiffness of the polycarbonate. Moreover, the attraction of the phenyl groups between different molecules contributes to the good thermal resistance and high viscosity of polycarbonates. This kind of sturdiness prevents polycarbonates from developing a significant crystalline structure, which is the main reason for its property of transparency.
