We attended from 14 to 16 of October an important event hold in Munchen, based on BtoB and concerning the future of mobility,
After some years of use, Flontech logo has been re-stylized into a more modern graphic design, taking the occasion of the new web site and leaflets launching some new product families as well.
Whether you design, manufacture or supply materials, you need to comply with international norms, standards, Directives and Regulations across the world.
We’ve been working hard to prepare the new Flontech web site and it is now on-line (www.flontech.com) ! As everybody knows, Flontech is the compounding division of Guarniflon, offering top quality PTFE, PEEK and fluorinated thermoplastics raw materials.
During the 1st week of April, Guarniflon took part at HannoverMesse 2019, located in the heart of the hydraulic pavilion, Hall n. 20.
Maplus ski waxes got brilliant results at ski world championships: among the 18 medals available in the fast disciplines, 12 were won by athletes using Maplus ski waxes.
Dominik Paris wins world championship Super-G, Clarey 2nd, both skiing using FP4 Maplus waxes,
A new family of products was born at Guarniflon January 2019: n. 8 new PTFE based grades specially developed for air & gas reciprocating compressor applications.
The new catalogue was released last week with updated and improved sections in all areas with a comprehensive literature and illustrative graphics.

High Performance Films from Guarniflon are skived and melt extruded fluoropolymer films engineered by Guarniflon Spa R&D Department to allow the customers to select the right film for their application requirements. A wide range of grades including PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE, PVDF, THV, to match right combination of physical chemical performances in a variety of key market segments including composite molding for the automotive and aerospace industries, chemical processing, electrical/electronics, renewable energies and marine.

AEROSPACE
Flourinated polymers such as ETFE and FEP are the perfect choice for high performance CFRP processed at higher temperatures and requiring release films with unrivalled elongation, no-stick and mechanical properties, even perforated.
ELECTRONICS
In semiconductor manufacturing it is mandatory to use high performance materials to ensure a safe, quick and clean packaging encapsulation. In film Assisted Molding (FAM) our fluorinated polymers, for example ETFE, meet these demanding process requirements.
SOLAR ENERGY
Modern PV and solar panels need to be efficient, lightweight and, why not? Flexible and even foldable. Our high performance films like ETFE or FEP replace heavy and rigid glasses. And they are self-cleaning and very durable for long lasting outdoor exposure.
TRANSPORTATION
Carbon composite parts are more and more integrated in modern trains, buses and public transports to ensure reductions in weight, fuel consumption and enhanced fatigue resistance. Our high performance release films in ETFE, FEP, PTFE and PTFE adhesive tapes are specifically designed to meet CFRP fabrication expectations.
AUTOMOTIVE
From Formula One, Supercars and sport cars to luxury and general automotive, composite parts are mandatory to meet expectations in terms of performance, weight, fuel consumption and safety. Our high performance films and adhesive tapes are widely used for CFRP parts manufacturing.
MARINE
Carbon composite poles, masts, boarding stairs and passarelles are now common not only on racing boats. Our high performance release films and adhesive tapes are designed for manufacturers with the highest performance requests from their clients.

HPF from Guarniflon Spa are gathered under 3 main product families:

MATERIALS
Guarniflon® S.p.A. offers a range of films and tapes produced from the main thermoplastic fluoropolymers available, such as ETFE, FEP, THV, PVDF and PFA, with remarkable quality thanks to new dedicated machinery able to produce 2000 mm wide films equipped with sophisticated thickness control in the range from 12 to 300 micron and more.
All the products of the range offer an outstanding chemical stability, a wide range of service temperature, resistance to uv radiation and more generally to any weather condition, flame retardancy and possibility of recycling.
