With a roof area of 75,000m2, SoFi Stadium is the largest stadium in the world installing a single-layer film as a complete roof system. Recently, a Fluon (R) ETFE fluoropolymer film has been applied for insulation and weather-proofing
Fluon (R) ETFE film, a light-transmissive film developed and produced by Japanese manufacturer of high-tech materials, AGC, is used in the cable net roof system. The single-layer membrane structure of Fluon (R) ETFE film creates a comfortable environment for the audience with a view of a clear blue sky. In addition, a highly reflective ink printing process with long-term weatherability developed with proprietary AGC technology has been applied to achieve thermal insulation, creating a comfortable environment for the audience in the stadium.
Fluon (R) ETFE film used in this stadium has been produced by AGC in an integrated manner from the raw material stage since its launch in 1976. Fluon (R) ETFE film is characterized by excellent heat and weather resistance, as well as optical transparency. It is used as a highly functional material in a wide range of fields, including electronics, aircraft, aerospace, and solar cells. It is also used in the construction of large sports stadiums and green houses with membrane structures.
