This material is part of the free Environmental Performance in Construction (EPiC) Database. The EPiC Database contains embodied environmental flow coefficients for 250+ construction materials using a comprehensive hybrid life cycle inventory approach.

Ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) is a fluorine-based plastic with high corrosion resistance, self-cleaning properties, ultraviolet resistance and resistant to a broad range of temperatures.

ETFE is produced by polymerising tetrafluoroethylene using water. ETFE is then extruded to the required thickness and welded into large sheets.

Due to its high resistance to the outdoor environment, ETFE is used in tensile architecture as a membrane and can also be used in inflated cushions.
