DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF films are tough, durable, preformed polyvinyl fluoride films that are manufactured in continuous rolls. The unique weathering, mechanical, electrical, chemical, and stain-resistant properties of Tedlar® make it an ideal protective surfacing material for many applications. Tedlar® PVF films can be oriented or nonoriented as in the Tedlar® Special Properties (SP) film line. Film thickness can range from 12.5 microns (0.5 mil) to 50 microns (2 mil) and can be treated for adherability or left untreated for release applications.
Oriented FilmsOriented Tedlar® films are available today in more than 150 standard variations of opaque pigmented, translucent, and transparent films and can range from a high tensile strength, high flex variety (Type 2) to a high elongation, high tear resistance (Type 5).
Nonoriented Films Nonoriented Tedlar® SP films (Types 8 and 9) offer excellent conformability to almost any shape or substrate while maintaining the superb durability, chemical resistance, and ease of cleaning expected of Tedlar® PVF film. Nonoriented films offer gloss options and small-lot capability for custom colors and are available as multilayer films without needing adhesives or heat sealing. The Tedlar® SP process allows a pigmented base layer to be covered with an integral clear top layer.
