Developed by DuPontTM in 1961, Tedlar® PVF film has over a 60-year history of protecting important surfaces all over the globe. DuPont, founded in the U.S. in 1802, remains one of the world’s premier manufacturers of products that have transformed everyday living, including those with familiar names like Kevlar®, Tyvek®, Corian® and many more.
Yes, metal roofing and wall panels made with Tedlar PVF film are UL listed, Florida Product Approved and approved for use in High Velocity Hurricane Zones (HVHZ), including Miami-Dade County.
Metal panels finished with Tedlar have been time-tested against rigorous ASTM testing standards, and Mother Nature, for over 60 years delivering unmatched weather resistance and durability. From superior film integrity to better protection from harsh UV rays, pollutants and even salt water, no other metal panel coating performs like Tedlar.
Yes, Tedlar PVF film’s dense surface is non-reactive and inert. It is non-flammable and has low smoke toxicity. It does not support mold, mildew or bacteria growth and produces very low VOC emissions. Projects that specify Tedlar PVF film also qualify for LEED credits based on color selected.
Tedlar is a premium product priced comparably to many paint-based coatings. At Metal Alliance we are committed to offering the best metal products in the industry, at the best value. Depending on the supplier, investment in Tedlar protected metal coil and flats may be slightly higher.
Yes! Due to the color uniformity of Tedlar film from lot-to-lot and the resistance to fading once installed, replacement panels or new panels for an addition can be ordered in the same color as the original order.
Stock colors are always the best choice for timely project completion, but on larger projects we can evaluate additional film and color choice availability to meet your needs.
Tedlar® PVF film is superior to other protective coatings, including paint. With proven performance in the most extreme environments, it won’t crack, blister or check from UV rays, corrosion, acid rain or dirt, and there will be virtually no color fade or chalking. Aluminum applications will not experience corrosion from sea water and salt spray, including on direct oceanfront properties. Tedlar is also impervious to harsh chemicals and can be fabricated to the tightest of radii without cracks, loss of adhesion or color change.
