DuPont™ Tedlar® And Metal Alliance Showcase Innovative Premium Roofing Protection At 100th Florida Roofing And Sheet Metal Expo

Daytona Beach, FL - Dupont™ Tedlar® and Metal Alliance recently presented an innovative solution to the roofing and metal industry. The Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Association's (FRSA) Expo is an excellent forum each year to learn about the latest innovations in roofing. This year took place in Daytona Beach, July 20 - 22, to celebrate 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, headquartered in Stuart, Florida. “We always learn so much from our customers here, and this year we were thrilled to be showcasing our newest product line for demanding coastal applications.”

Metal Alliance supplies Tedlar® on aluminum to the roofing industry. “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 U.S.,” shared Jeff Argus, Global Business Development Manager for DuPont™ Tedlar®. The Metal Alliance Tedlar® products generated interest at the FRSA, as roofers, designers, and other attendees navigate the current coating supply challenges as well as performance challenges in coastal areas. Tedlar® is in stock, available in a range of colors, and has been proven in highly corrosive outdoor applications for over half a century around the world. Metal Alliance offers it to the roofing industry with up to 50-year warranties without coastal restrictions.

In the booth, people were able to feel the quality of the product, see the colors, and view images depicting the longevity of Tedlar® installations around the world - including a recent installation at a condominium at the Hilton Head, SC coastline, and a resort in Jackson Hole, WY. “One of the main reasons we have customers selecting Tedlar®, in addition to its best-in-class coastal performance,” noted Faulkner, “is the low amount of maintenance required. Tedlar® does not require a freshwater rinse under warranty, and the color change is almost nonexistent over decades of sun exposure.”

Tedlar® PVF film has demonstrated superior performance. It is extremely flexible, chemically resistant, dirt-shedding, and does not support the growth of mold or mildew. Tedlar® is made in the United States and is in stock in a range of colors, including transparent. Metal Alliance and DuPont are partnering closely to continue bringing this solution to the roofing industry, and the FRSA was an excellent forum to share this innovation.
