Fluoropolymer coatings such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), polyvinyl acetate (PFA), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), fluorinated ethylene propylene (FED, ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
(ETFE) and ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE), as well as hybrids incorporating polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) and ceramic, are in high demand.
copolymer (ETFE), fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP), and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) are the typical front-sheet candidate materials to replace glass, as they improve light transmission by a few percent.
, on the other hand, traps the alginate particles by forming cow-web like structure due to the stresses applied during manipulation [10, 11].
A lightweight, self cleaning plastic called ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
will be used in place of glass.
The polymer ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
(ETFE) is changing the way architects and engineers think about building performance.
Engineers of the structure propose using ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
(ETFE), a material that weighs only a fraction as much as glass and can withstand 180 mile per hour winds.
It combines a double O-ring-sealed packing follower with low-friction tetrafluoroethylene
(TFE)-based packing materials for reliable, long-term service that complies with low-emissions standards, www.

Copolymer Films," Radiat.
The Cube's approximately 4,000 bubbles are made of high-tech ethylene tetrafluoroethylene
(ETFE), a sturdy material that is 1/100th the weight of glass.
The many stadiums China has erected to host the Olympic events are considered green marvels, including the steel-looped Beijing National Stadium, or "Bird's Nest" which includes rainwater collection, a natural ventilation system and a clear roof with inflatable ETFE cushions (made of Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene
, a kind of plastic) and the steel "Water Cube" for aquatics events, which is completely surrounded with ETFE pillows that increase light and heat penetration, cutting energy use by 30 percent.
He and his associates found that a frozen, compressed sample of tetrafluoroethylene
had polymerized into a solid and formed polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or Teflon.
It was tetrafluoroethylene
(PTFE), which Dr Plunkett abbreviated to Teflon.
