- Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
- Production Part Approval Process (PPAP)
- 100% optical and automatic selection
- Well-equipped laboratories

With more than 250 PTFE compounds, some of which patented, Guarniflon represents one of the world’s best in PTFE and fluorobased materials, developing tailor made products working closely with the customer’s R&D teams.


GUARNIFLON SPA – ENTERING A NEW ERA OF HPF (HIGH PERFORMANCE FILMS)
Mazza Holding has expanded through a number of acquisitions including a Group of Italian and international companies, serving a variety of industries with over 6000 tons of processed fluorobased materials per year.

Established in 1982, Guarniflon Spa, operates as an international network of worldwide leading producers of semifinished and engineered, high-performance fluoropolymer products, with companies located in Germany, France, UK, Spain, Romania, India and USA, to locally support the customer. Some of those companies are also manufacturing plants. Guarniflon Spa has evolved as a market leader for an ever expanding range of fluoropolymers grades processed for various different industrial applications.

In addition to the standard production of PTFE semifinished and machined products that allowed Guarniflon to develop first in its domestic markets and later the international markets, the most recent investments have been focused on top grade fluorobased materials processing, to enter the highest technological fields such as aerospace, pharmaceutical, automotive, electronics, solar energy, transportation, to name but a few. The new product family named HPF – High Performance Films is incorporated under the following 3 brand names: Tekflim (Skived and Extruded Films and Tapes) – Tekbond (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Tapes) – Teklease (Release films for composite industries), PTFE, FEP, ETFE, PFA,THV being the most processed materials. This new product line was launched thanks to the acquisition of the Italian company PATI Spa, the leading company for HPF for agricultural, architectural and industrial applications.

Post processing technologies available at Guarniflon, such as orienting, calendaring, slitting, surface treatment, pigmentation, adhesive coating, add to the above products a higher value according to customers’ requirements.

High performance release films for high temperatures

Guarniflon TEKLEASE release film products have been specially formulated to suit a variety of individual composite process applications. Release films are used to separate and release the laminate from the vacuum stack following the cure of the composite component.

TEKLEASE films are supplied both as unperforated and perforated to allow resin and volatiles to bleed out of the laminate, and coloured for easy identification. The selection of a release film should be based on the resin system being used, the temperature and pressure of the cure cycle, the shape of the component to be cured and the amount of resin bleed that is required.

FEP - ETFE - PTFE - MODIFIED PTFE materials available in different sizes and thicknesses, perforated or not.

Pressure sensitive adhesive tapes

PTFE films provide a conformable release surface and exhibit a remarkably low coefficient of friction and non-stick properties.

PTFE films have high temperature resistance and are virtually unaffected by all chemicals. At elevated temperatures, PTFE films retain excellent tensile strength. Film applications include high temperature coil and capacitor wrapping, composite bonding, masking and conveyor release linings.




Adhesive systems
- Silicone
Perfect for extreme temperature applications, silicone adhesive performs in continuous service temperature from -73°C up to 260°C. Silicone based adhesive system exhibits good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties.
- Acrylic
Acrylic adhesives perform in continuous operating temperatures from -40 °C to +177 °C. Benefits include exceptional solvent resistance, excellent adhesion to metal, superior weathering and aging characteristics.
Acrylics have an excellent shelf life and when exposed to elevated temperatures their ability to wet-out improves thus increasing both adhesion and tack properties. Acrylic adhesives will generally thermoset when exposed to heat. The adhesive will then exhibit increased strength and improved thermal capabilities.

Release liners
- PVC
- Polypropylene
- Polycoated kraft
- Fluorosilicone
