MakMax Australia presents PTFE coated high translucency glass fibre
fabric capable of withstanding high temperatures and UV radiation.
The PTFE or polytetrafluroethlyene coated glass fibre fabric combines
aesthetics, durability and function in a dynamic tensile material, making it
suitable for tensile membrane structures and shade structures. PTFE glass fibre
coating is chemically inert and capable of withstanding temperatures from -73°C
to +232°C, making the PTFE coated fabric suitable for bushfire prone regions.
PTFE glass fibre high translucent fabric membrane can be spot welded or
sewn to provide exceptional strength and durability, enabling designers to push
the limits of design in exterior or interior applications without worrying
about the material cracking or creasing under the strain of repeat flexing or
Reflecting as much as 60 percent of visible light, the translucent fabric
also offers a cost-effective, low-maintenance option for building owners and
developers who demand a material that installs white and stays that way for a
long time. Additionally, the fabric behaves elastically under normal conditions
and does not undergo significant stress relaxation or creep.
Key features of PTFE coated glass fibre fabric include waterproof
material; UV resistance; exceptional stain resistance; easy to clean surface; self-cleaning
properties superior to conventional PTFE coating when coated with titanium
dioxide (TiO2) photo-catalyst; high translucency with even dispersion of
daylight; and highly reflective coating serving as a dramatic backdrop for
night time or interior lighting.
PTFE glass fibre fabric is ideally suited for MakMax's commercial and
retail market sectors including malls and office complexes.
