Tedlar® PVF Features in Aerospace Applications

DuPont™ Tedlar® protective film offers attractive, easy-to-clean, scuff-resistant surface protection to aircraft interiors. Tedlar® films are lightweight, have excellent conformability and offer superior resistance to harsh cleaners, chemicals and solvents, eliminating the need for repainting and reducing maintenance costs to help provide every passenger a fresh look on every flight.

The proven performance of Tedlar® film has made it the aircraft standard to which other materials used in the industry are measured. Tedlar® film meets or exceeds Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) standards.

Design flexibility

Tedlar® film gives airlines maximum interior design flexibility to create passenger areas that are attractive and easy to clean. Tedlar® films can be embossed and printed, enabling the use of many unique texture designs and can be tailored to various gloss levels, thicknesses and finishes.

Fade resistant

Tedlar® film is available in an array of fade-resistant colors to match the look of your aircraft. If necessary, the colors can be matched long after the initial installation. Transparent Tedlar® film is also available as an excellent overlaminate for printed patterns.
