WILMINGTON, Del.— DuPont announced that its Tedlar® business has become a member of the Metal Construction Association (MCA). The MCA is an organization of manufacturers and suppliers whose metal products are used in structures throughout the world. Formed in 1983, MCA is focused on promoting the use of metal in the building envelope through marketing, education and public policies affecting metal’s use.

“We are proud to join MCA and continue bringing these market-leading products to the building and construction industry,” said Matt Urfali, sales and marketing vice president of DuPont Tedlar Advanced Materials business. “Tedlar has over 60 years of proven performance in protecting surfaces around the world. We look forward to working closely with MCA to increase the use of metal in the construction industry.”

Since the 1960s, Tedlar PVF film has been tested and proven effective in protecting a variety of surfaces including metal in highly corrosive and demanding exterior applications around the world. Tedlar PVF film, when laminated to metal coil, provides superior performance versus other premium industrial coatings in the market today. Tedlar is extremely resistant to chemicals and is flexible, meaning it forms to any panel shape without compromising film integrity on even the sharpest bends. Tedlar film has been chosen for projects requiring premium protection of metal building materials used in corrosive environments, including structures built within 1,500 feet from the ocean. Tedlar is produced in the U.S. and in stock, making it an excellent solution for today’s metal building industry.

Known for offering long-lasting aesthetic protection for architectural applications, Tedlar is available in a range of popular colors and can preserve and extend a building’s appearance for the lifetime. Tedlar films are highly weatherable and dirt-shedding, therefore reducing maintenance costs and protecting structural investments.
