Newer applications of ETFE

ETFE is being used in the architecture industry over the last 25 years. The architecture and construction sectors have experienced a revolution with the use of this material. ETFE helps in building artistic structures and in energy savings. In the case of ETFE cushions, they are kept continually pressurized by a small inflation unit which maintains the pressure at approx. 220 Pa and gives the foil structural stability and the roof some insulation properties.

As ETFE is transparent, self-cleaning, durable, and flexible to a great extent, it is emerging as one of the most popular materials in the building and design industries. The excellent properties of ETFE have made it a suitable material for many architectural projects of almost any shape. ETFE was used to construct artistic structures such as China’s Shenzhen East Huaqiao City Indoor Water Park, which is one of the largest ETFE projects in China, contributing to the popularity of ETFE structures in China.

ETFE film is much lighter, more resilient, and energy-efficient than glass. It is naturally a very transparent material and transmits light across the entire structure. A single layer of medium weight ETFE approximately transmits 85% light. ETFE greenhouses may cost up to 10 times less than greenhouses made from other materials such as glass or other plastic sheets. Heat is principally transferred in and out of a building through air leaks. The energy lost through air gaps in the glass is greatly reduced using ETFE.

ETFE greenhouse is airtight, and the indoor climate can be controlled. For a low angle of incidence of light, such as during dusk or dawn, most of the light transmitted through the films in the greenhouse will not be reflected. The ETFE cushions have evading curves in all directions on which the wind has no grip, unlike traditional buildings with overhangs or square corners, which are prone to wind noise and heat loss. Hence, both the gardener and the plants will be safer in an ETFE greenhouse during high wind. Thus, ETFE material can provide solar energy and cost benefits for the horticulture sector.

ETFE is not completely soundproof

ETFE structures are increasingly being used because of their transparency. It is, however, difficult to realize sufficient sound insulation for these structures, and also to predict the insulation and the sound intensity levels due to rain and other noise. For instance, Nottingham High School for Boys was built using ETFE. In order to mitigate the problem of noise at Nottingham High School, architects fitted a sound suppression system (a layer that acts as a dampener to soften the sound of the droplets hitting the tensioned cushion surface) to reduce noise levels during heavy rainfall. However, the problem was not resolved.
