As part of DuPont’s multi-phase US$295 million investment to double Tedlar film capacity, the company has revealed that production of polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) polymer resin, used in its Tedlar polyvinly fluoride film, was launched at its Fayetteville, North Carolina facility.

“Starting up this new line of polymer resin production for Tedlar film is a critical step necessary for us to meet the overwhelming customer demand for this essential solar panel backsheet material,” said David B. Miller, president of DuPont Electronics & Communications. “Tedlar enables solar panels to deliver reliable power output for 25 plus years. This capacity expansion will allow us to help our customers supply the highest quality solar modules as the market continues to grow.”

With this second production line at the Fayetteville Works facility, DuPont expects to provide higher volume of Tedlar film through next year. Additional production is slated to begin in Circleville, Ohio, during September 2011.
