Renewable energy fuel cells & membranes

Green and efficient fuel cells are essential for making the energy sector environmentally friendly. VERSIV PTFE-coated fabrics ensure energy efficiency of fuel stacks and provide effective barrier solutions that withstand extreme temperatures and harsh environments. Reliable and long-lasting, they can be manufactured to any size and shape - we can also create unique, customized composite materials for you on request.

Our Products

VERSIV™ Laminate Brown

VERSIV™ non-stick release, barrier protection, friction control, and dielectric control insulation solutions are used in the food, energy, medical and electronics sectors. They are ideal for manufacturers who want to optimize performance and efficiency in challenging processes and operational environments.

VERSIV™ Cast PTFE Film product family image

VERSIV™ Cast PTFE Films have a special multi-layer construction comprised of various layers configured with different polymers and polymer blends – which can be customized to meet your unique needs. They are used in heat weldable and anti-static conductive applications as well as mold release and vacuum bagging.

Photovoltaic front sheets

Our barrier films offer a light and flexible solution to replace glass in photovoltaic front sheets. The matte surface finish can withstand intense weather while also offering high light transmission and low glare properties. Our solutions help reduce the weight of solar panels while maintaining light transmittance, and aging resistance and provide long-term durability and aesthetic appeal.

Our Products

ETFE Raw Film with Color

With a matte surface texture on one side having an Ra surface roughness of approximately 2-3 microns, our ETFE matte films are an effective way of reducing the glare from PV frontsheets. They can also transfer a matte or low gloss surface to molded parts during the composite or electronics molding process.

VERSIV™ Laminate Brown

VERSIV™ non-stick release, barrier protection, friction control, and dielectric control insulation solutions are used in the food, energy, medical and electronics sectors. They are ideal for manufacturers who want to optimize performance and efficiency in challenging processes and operational environments.

ETFE E2

ETFE E2 General Purpose film can be used in diverse and demanding  applications like dry-erase writing surfaces, protective laminates for outdoor graphics, and front sheets in photovoltaic (PV) cells. Non-stick, self-cleaning, and heat-sealable, C-treated bondable versions are also available.

VERSIV™ Natural Black Fabric

Tear-resistant PTFE-coated woven fiberglass fabric is extremely flexible, crease-resistant, and easily fabricated. The antistatic version features all the excellent chemical and mechanical benefits of the range and is also black – eliminating electrical sparks and static charging. Both choices are durable and easy to use.

Electrolyzers

Our protection films seal the stack in frame gaskets or seal and position the MEA or CCM in sub-gaskets used in the PEM, alkaline, stationary, and mobile electrolyzers used in renewable projects. They are chemically inert and offer a high-temperature range, smooth and controlled surfaces, and tight thickness tolerances.
