Cover: Biaxial melt-drawing produces a high-performance poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE) membrane with excellent mechanical properties and superior transparency, compared to those of commercial PTFE sheet prepared by skiving technique. One of the possible applications of such transparent but robust PTFE is a stadium roof membrane, which state-of-art is composed of PTFE raw powder and glass fiber textiles, thus is cloudy white and difficult to recycle.
