ETFE by MakMax is the next generation in material where the impossible with glass is now possible.

Only 350gsm*

• as ETFE film is lightweight, it requires less structural steel to support it, and less materials results in a much lighter carbon footprint

• greater design capabilities due to the lightweight and flexibility of the ETFE film

• unlike glass, ETFE film is shatterproof, so there are no sharp shards or jagged edges if broken or tampered with

* Weight: under the condition t=200µm

Excellent light transmission

• ETFE film produces a bright and open space that can emulate the outdoors

• due to the high transmittance of daylight, lighting costs can be reduced which in turn will contribute to saving energy

• by choosing a specific ETFE film, light transmission can be controlled to best suit the exposed area

Superior durability and self-cleaning properties

• ETFE is highly resistant to chemical damage, as well as being resilient to wild weather

• ETFE film can retain its strength for over 20 years, whilst also retaining its transparency with its self-cleaning capabilities

Insulation properties

• when ETFE film is used in the two or three layer model it can be a great source of insulation for the inside of the structure


• ETFE is recyclable — once it has been taken from a structure it can be recycled back into useable ETFE products

• ETFE is a lightweight fabric which requires less fabrication than traditional building materials, reducing C02 emissions in the air

• due to its transparency (up to 90 per cent) ETFE can reduce the use and cost of indoor lighting

Fire resistant

• ETFE film has passed International standards in fire resistance

Various types of ETFE film

• there are many types of ETFE films, including: transparent, matte, white and printed

• each type has a specific use, such as light control and to reduce UV
