POREX® VIRTEK PTFE MEMBRANES

Advantages of Porex® PTFE Membranes

  • Robust and durable sintered PTFE due to 3D matrix construction
  • Naturally hydrophobic for waterproof venting
  • Self-supporting membrane that is easy to handle and omni-directional
  • Structure allows plating or bonding of secondary layers
  • UL-94 flammability and UL-746C weatherability listings
  • Reflecting property to diffuse light or radiation
