etfe matte film


ETFE Fluoropolymer films that are manufactured from ethylene tetrafluoroethylene copolymer resin with a textured matte surface on one side for reduced glare in PV or composite molding applications.

ETFE Matte

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.

Product Details

Our ETFE matte films offer the same chemical, thermal and weatherability performance as our glossy ETFE films, but with some important differences. Having a matte texture on one side of the film creates an effective solution for reducing the visual glare of PV frontsheets or transferring matte surfaces to electronics and other molded products. Whatever you use them for, our ETFE films all bring the same level of resistance to wide temperature ranges and adverse weather conditions. When combined with a non-stick, easy to clean surface and high light transmittance, you get a solution that provides long-term value without the need for extensive maintenance.
