DuPont™ Tedlar® and Metal Alliance presented their innovative solution of Tedlar® PVF film on aluminum to the roofing and metal industry at the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Expo (FRSA) in Daytona Beach. This year’s event marked the 100th anniversary of the Expo.
“The FRSA is one of our favorite shows, and it’s right in our backyard,” said Tara Faulkner, Business Development Manager for Metal Alliance LLC, a Titan Steel partner company headquartered in Stuart, Florida. “We always learn so much from our customers here, and this year we are thrilled to be showcasing our newest product line for demanding coastal applications.”
Tedlar® is in stock, available in a range of colors, and has been proven in highly corrosive outdoor applications for more than 50 years around the world. It is extremely flexible, chemically resistant, dirt-shedding, and does not support the growth of mold or mildew. Metal Alliance provides this offering to the roofing industry with up to 50-year warranties without coastal restrictions.
“Working with our partners at Metal Alliance and Titan Steel has helped us bring this game-changing product to contractors and building owners all over the US,” said Corynn Sheridan, Global Marketing Director for DuPont™ Tedlar®.
“One of the main reasons for customers to select Tedlar®, in addition to its best-in-class coastal performance, is the low amount of maintenance required. Tedlar® does not require a freshwater rinse under warranty and the color doesn’t fade over decades of sun exposure,” added Faulkner.
Tedlar® products displayed at the Expo generated interest among roofers, designers, and other attendees, who are navigating coating supply and performance challenges in coastal areas. While touring the Metal Alliance booth, attendees interacted with the product, previewed available colors, and saw images depicting the longevity of Tedlar® – including recent metal roof installations at a condominium at the Hilton Head, SC coastline, and a resort in Jackson Hole, WY.
