  • Lightweight and movable coverings
  • Durable roofs and facades
  • Strong and transparent films
  • Longer lasting paint systems
  • More weatherable infrastructure

Products for Construction and Infrastructure

Fluon® ETFE film is strong, lightweight and self-cleaning, which makes it an ideal material for architectural façades. It can also be backlit or constructed as two-layer pillows, creating unique structures. The film is often used as a covering material in natural grass stadiums because of its durability and transparency.

F-CLEAN™ ETFE film comes in various finishes and thicknesses to transmit the right amount of sunlight for different crops.

Coatings formulated with LUMIFLON® FEVE resins protect infrastructure like bridges and water towers from UV light exposure, corrosion and other elements. They are often applied to steel, aluminum, fiberglass and polycarbonate structures to improve their weatherability. The coatings retain their color and gloss, lasting 30 years or more.

PREMINOL™ polyether polyols have a high molecular weight, narrow molecular weight distribution and ultra-low monol content. These properties enable the polymers to boost the strength of coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers.
