Architectural Fabrics Division

For much of its history, Taconic has been providing PTFE and silicone-coated fiberglass fabrics for unique, innovative architectural structures. Taconic fabrics are designed to provide lightweight, convenient, fireproof, and beautiful alternatives to traditional architectural materials. The use of PTFE-GLASS™ fabrics 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. Recent installations include the Pilgrim’s Accommodation Project in Mecca, Saudi Arabia and the Baby Dome in London, England.

Advanced Dielectric Division

Taconic’s Advanced Dielectric Division was founded in the early 1980s with a vision to supply the world with the finest quality microwave circuit board materials available. Today, this vision has been realized. Advanced Dielectric Division technology is used in some of the most leading-edge communication systems in the world. Typical applications for Taconic laminate substrates include emerging collision-avoidance and radar systems as well as cellular communications and global positioning systems [GPS]. Long-term product development goals include supplying high-end, high-frequency PTFE laminated circuit board material that offers improved performance and lower costs.
