LIke many other innovations in the segment, US chemicals giant Dupont has a role here too, with the backsheet based on a new polyamide-ionomer alloy developed by it. Duponts’ Tedlar backsheets have for long dominated the market with their Poly Vinyl Fluoride based films.

The new launch is squarely aimed at the existing AAA and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)-based backsheets segment, where the firm claims that its new backsheets outperforms competition comfortably.
