The experienced personnel at American Durafilm® Co., Inc. offer extensive knowledge of available materials and processes for viable solutions across many markets and industries. Our staff work closely with scientists, engineers and designers to create new and innovative fabrication techniques to meet the most stringent specifications and designs. We have extensive experience in heat sealing, thermoforming, die cutting, sheeting, cylinder manufacture, and laminates. Our clean room allows us to provide products of the highest quality, while paying the greatest attention to the environment under which these critical components are manufactured.

Types:

SP—Applications for aircraft interiors; excellent conformability to substrates while maintaining superb durability, color, stability (available in custom colors), chemical resistance, and ease of cleaning

S—Heat-sealable film, used for fabrication of gas sampling bags and acoustic tiles; requires a clean, contaminant-free surface when heat-sealing

A—One-side adherable surfaces used with adhesives for bonding to a wide variety of substrates; excellent compatibility with many classes of adhesive, including acrylics, polyesters, epoxies, rubbers, and pressure-sensitive mastics

B—Two-side adherable surfaces used with adhesives for bonding to a wide variety of substrates; excellent compatibility with many classes of adhesive, including acrylics, polyesters, epoxies, rubbers, and pressure-sensitive mastics

Data Sheets:

Type 1—Special film that has controlled shrinkage; good aging properties, keeping it tough and flexible over a broad temperature range

Type 2—Available in clear or pigmented forms, high tensile strength, high flex variety, and high elongation, good aging properties, tough and flexible over a broad temperature range

Type 3— Available in clear or pigmented forms with high tensile strength, high elongation, good aging properties, tough and flexible over a broad temperature range

Type 4—Available in clear form with high tensile strength, high elongation, high tear modification, good aging properties, tough and flexible over a broad temperature range

Type 5—Developed for applications where deep draw and texturing are required while retaining surface release, durability, color stability, and color reproducibility; also can be printed on and laminated to a variety of substrates; for use when formed parts with complex curves require surface protection; available in clear or pigmented forms with high tensile strength, high elongation, good aging properties, tough and flexible over a broad temperature range
