Tedlar® PVF Film for Metal Roofing and Facades


Metal building exteriors require a mix of performance attributes, including aesthetics, UV, weather, and corrosion resistance, and much more. 

Tedlar® PVF film provides the best protection on the market for metal exteriors, with up to 50 years warranty on a selection of exterior films. DuPont Tedlar® polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) film has provided long-lasting protection on metal surfaces around the world for decades.

Tedlar® PVF film is superior to other protective coatings or materials. Tedlar® won’t fade, chalk, crack, blister or check from UV exposure, acid rain or dirt. Even projects within 1500 feet of the ocean, including direct oceanfront properties, will enjoy best-in-class lasting protection against degradation from corrosive salt spray. Tedlar® is impervious to harsh chemicals, and its unmatched pliability means it can be fabricated to a vast range of shapes without cracks, film integrity loss, or loss of adhesion.

Tedlar® ensures your building project will look and perform like new for decades, and your customers’ investment is protected with the market’s most premium option. Additionally, using aluminum or steel laminated with Tedlar® can reduce the need to replace building materials over the life of a structure, thanks to the film’s excellent longevity.

Tedlar® PVF film is available in a large range of colors, matching many of the most popular PVDF coating colors; including a range of blacks, grays, browns, bronze, whites, and much more.
