PTFE Membranes - Waterproof, Windproof and Heat Resistant

Polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE, is a synthetic material which can be expanded to form a porous membrane that can be laminated to fabric for its waterproof, windproof and heat resistant properties, ideal for fire fighter apparel, sports and leisurewear garments and military gear.

Porelle’s PTFE membranes are combined with cross-linked polyurethane coatings, which penetrates into the PTFE structure.

This enhances the durability of the membrane. This means that after multiple washing, wearing and usage, you’ll still be protected by Porelle’s PTFE technology.

Advantages of using Bi Component PTFE membranes

Porelle’s Bi Component PTFE membranes are high and low temperature resistant, providing protection for users against extreme environmental conditions that they may be exposed to, during their work or leisure pursuits.

Porelle breathable membranes allow for sweat to pass through to the outer fabrics, to enable easier regulation of body temperature, allowing users to stay more comfortable for longer. The membranes’ waterproof nature prevents water from impregnating the base layers, providing protection for users in the coldest and wettest of conditions.

The breathable and waterproof technology of Porelle’s membranes are also combined with lightweight and comfortable properties to provide a solution that is beneficial in a wide range of situations.

From military and industrial uses to winter and water sports, Bi Component PTFE membranes provide both protection and comfort to allow users to perform at their peak at all times, regardless of external conditions.
