Tedlar® is a registered trademark owned by DuPont, representing a highly versatile polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) film known for its exceptional durability when exposed to challenging environmental conditions.
DuPont pioneered the development of polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) polymer in the 1940s and initiated the creation of various products utilizing this innovative material by the 1950s.
In the year 1961, DuPont officially registered the brand name Tedlar® in the United States, marking the commencement of construction for its inaugural production facility in Buffalo, New York. Subsequently, a significant capacity expansion was undertaken and completed in 2012.
Fast forward more than five decades, and Tedlar® film has earned a reputation as the benchmark for high-performance surface protection, showcasing undeniable resilience in demanding operating environments. Tedlar® PVF film has been an integral part of various building product applications for over half a century. It offers a cost-effective, long-lasting solution for preserving the aesthetic appeal of architectural projects, even when subjected to the harshest outdoor conditions. Remarkably, there are no geographical restrictions, including coastal regions, where Tedlar® proves its effectiveness.
Tedlar® PVF films play a pivotal role in extending a building’s appearance and lifespan by preventing issues such as fading, cracking, or corrosion on building facades. These films are not only resistant to stains but also easy to clean, resulting in reduced maintenance costs and ultimately contributing to a lower total life cycle cost for buildings.
