Case Study: Metal Lamination

Sika metal lamination
June 6, 2022 at 6:00 p.m.

By DuPont Tedlar. 

This Japan Railway covered stairway at Komoro Station in Nagano, Japan is made with roof tiles specially shaped by press machines and manufactured by Nippon Steel.  

See DuPont™ Tedlar®  in action with this railway structure that chose DuPont™ Tedlar® to protect and maintain the beauty of the structure. There are two different styles of construction within the project, the frontside (entrance of stairway) has ceramic tiles, while the metal rooftop of the stair corridor is laminated with Tedlar® film TCC15BL3.  

The color matching of the ceramic roof tiles and the formed metal roof tiles with colored Tedlar® film have withstood two decades of exposure to harsh weather conditions found in Japan’s Northern Alps, including heavy snow, without showing any signs of either corrosion, fading or wear and tear. 

Tedlar® protective film is ultraviolet (UV) and weather-resistant, fade and crack resistant, and does not support mold or mildew growth, providing superior protection in even the most extreme environments. Plus, Tedlar® has good temperature resistance. In most applications, Tedlar® can withstand temperatures in excess of 177°C (350°F) for several hours. Extend both the life and aesthetics of your next project with Tedlar.® 

Manufacturer partner: Nippon Steel  

Area of application: Building & Construction
