healthcare surfaces

Duratec Tedlar® is a highly versatile polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) film that provides a long-lasting finish to wallcoverings, perfect for healthcare and aged care projects. The film can be applied to any Invinci wallcovering or custom wallcovering (minimum quantities apply). 

Duratec Tedlar® film becomes a part of the wallcovering after being adhered at a high temperature which means no peeling or reapplying of the film, ever.

Unique values for healthcare and aged care interiors include:

  • Mold & Bacteria Resistant
  • FR tested in accordance with AS/NZS 3837-1998. A group number assessment notice is available on request in accordance with AS 5637.1-2015. 
  • Long- term protection and endurable style
  • Easy Cleaning
  • Chemical Resistant
  • Safe and Green


The Duratec Tedlar surface does not provide nutrients to enable mold or bacteria growth, certified by MicroStar Labs, ASTM G21 and JIS Z 2801.

Wallcoverings described as mildew-resistant are protected to resist fungi (mildew) growth on the decorative surface to achieve a rating of 0 or 1 when tested in accordance with Practice G21.

Duratec Tedlar PVF surface keeps mold-resistant Grade 1 after material aging.

Aging condition: 85℃/85% humidity, 1000 hours
