Taconic Lester T. Russell, the acknowledged inventor of the process for applying polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) to fiberglass fabric, founded Taconic in 1961. Since then, Taconic has been on the cutting edge of developing advanced engineered composite materials for a variety of demanding applications.

Why PTFE Coated Fiberglass?
Taconic's products are used wherever strong, lightweight, waterproof, thermal, fireproof and nonstick materials are required. There are many benefits of PTFE coated fiberglass:

  • Durability
  • Non-stick properties
  • Chemical resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Temperature resistant (-200°C/-328°F to +260°C/500°F)
  • Electrical and thermal insulator
  • Weather resistant
  • Non-flammable/ UL 94 V-0
  • UV resistant

Taconic, an ISO 9001 registered company, operates two divisions:

Industrial Products Division - produces coated materials including specialty fabrics, pressure-sensitive tapes, engineered conveyor belts and silicone products suited for these applications:

  • Taconic Packaging
  • Aerospace
  • Textiles
  • Thermal Spray
  • Food Processing
  • Heat Sealing
  • Screen Printing
  • Carpet Fabrication
  • Thermal Spray
  • Plastics/Chemicals/Rubber
  • PVC Window Fabrication

The Industrial Products Division also offers solutions for architectural applications.

Advanced Dielectric Division - produces high performance microwave laminates, prepregs, high speed digital and flexible interconnect materials. Typical applications include:

  • TaconicTelecommunications  
  • Aerospace Guidance Telemetry
  • Military
  • Semiconductor Chip Testing
  • Phase array radar
  • Chip Packaging
  • RF Modules
  • Power amplifiers
  • Test & Measurement
  • High Density Interconnect

TaconicArchitectural Fabrics:
Solus® Architectural Fabric is designed to provide lightweight, convenient, fireproof and beautiful alternatives to traditional architectural materials. This fabric allows superior heat and cold resistance and a smooth, waterproof surface for numerous architectural applications such as skylight systems, roof systems, canopies/walkways, freestanding structures, and interior shading and acoustical systems.
