Tedlar® PVF Features in Transportation Applications

DuPont™ Tedlar® protective film offers attractive, easy-to-clean, stain- and scuff-resistant surface protection to transportation interiors and exteriors. Tedlar® can stand up to the harshest industrial cleaning products, including bleach, eliminating the need for repainting and reducing maintenance costs.

Long-lasting protection

Tedlar® film gives transportation exteriors the ability to withstand daily washing and allows unsightly stains from dirt, bird dirt, unwanted ink, grease and oil to easily be wiped away, preserving the look and color for years.

Tedlar® film can withstand daily washing and frequent brushes from roadside vegetation. Able to resist stains, chemicals and even the weather, Tedlar® ensures long-lasting protection, with little maintenance required.

Fade resistant

Tedlar® film is available in transparent, translucent and opaque pigments that can both shield UV radiation and resist fading and color shifts for many years to come.

Unique Values for Rail

Long-term Protection

  • Provide a protective barrier against most staining agents and cleaning solvents, including: bleach, alcohols, ketones (acetone, MEK) and even strong acids and alkalis.

Flame resistance

  • Non-flammable and low smoke toxicity
  • Used in aircrafts; Exceed the ASTM E84 Class A rating.

Mold and Bacteria resistance

  • Tedlar® is naturally flexible and does not need processing aids or additives (plasticizers) that provide nutrients for mold or bacteria growth.
  • Tedlar® surface has been tested and certified using ASTM G21, JIS Z 2801, and ISO 846:2019(E). Results indicate that the films do not contain nutritive components for the bacteria or fungi tested to grow.

Easy Cleaning

  • Stain resistant to various species in healthcare environment, easy to clean completely after 24h dwell time.

Indoor Air Quality

  • Maybe be able to receive UL Greenguard GOLD for Low VOC and Mold Resistant. Tedlar currently have certificates for Wallcoverings.

UV Light Resistant

  • PVF does not absorb UV radiation and maintains low color change when exposed to UVA, UVB, or UVC light for sterilization.

Versatile Design and Enduring style

  • PVF is naturally transparent with low color.
  • Color is stable during use in harsh environments.
  • Scrub resistant surfaces are ideal for high traffic areas

Applications & Uses

Tedlar® PVF for Transportation Applications
  • Automobiles
  • Commercial trucks
  • Busses
  • Trains
  • Marine vessels
  • Brake tube coatings
Passenger Rail Applications
  • Similar to Aircraft, passenger rail seems similar traffic flow of customers through the doors daily.
  • The overall durability, stain resistance, and cleanability make Tedlar® ideal for many different areas inside and outside a rail car.
  • Tedlar® has great thermoformability making it ideal for manufacturing interior sidewalls.
