HIGH PERFORMANCE FILMS & TAPES

High Performance Films from Guarniflon are skived and melt extruded fluoropolymer films engineered by Guarniflon Spa R&D Department to allow the customers to select the right film for their application requirements. A wide range of grades including PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE, PVDF, THV, to match right combination of physical chemical performances in a variety of key market segments including composite molding for the automotive and aerospace industries, chemical processing, electrical/electronics, renewable energies and marine.

AEROSPACE
Flourinated polymers such as ETFE and FEP are the perfect choice for high performance CFRP processed at higher temperatures and requiring release films with unrivalled elongation, no-stick and mechanical properties, even perforated.
ELECTRONICS
In semiconductor manufacturing it is mandatory to use high performance materials to ensure a safe, quick and clean packaging encapsulation. In film Assisted Molding (FAM) our fluorinated polymers, for example ETFE, meet these demanding process requirements.
SOLAR ENERGY
Modern PV and solar panels need to be efficient, lightweight and, why not? Flexible and even foldable. Our high performance films like ETFE or FEP replace heavy and rigid glasses. And they are self-cleaning and very durable for long lasting outdoor exposure.
TRANSPORTATION
Carbon composite parts are more and more integrated in modern trains, buses and public transports to ensure reductions in weight, fuel consumption and enhanced fatigue resistance. Our high performance release films in ETFE, FEP, PTFE and PTFE adhesive tapes are specifically designed to meet CFRP fabrication expectations.
AUTOMOTIVE
From Formula One, Supercars and sport cars to luxury and general automotive, composite parts are mandatory to meet expectations in terms of performance, weight, fuel consumption and safety. Our high performance films and adhesive tapes are widely used for CFRP parts manufacturing.
MARINE
Carbon composite poles, masts, boarding stairs and passarelles are now common not only on racing boats. Our high performance release films and adhesive tapes are designed for manufacturers with the highest performance requests from their clients.
