WILMINGTON, Del., May. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DuPont (NYSE:DD) and its customer Wallquest Inc. exhibited at the annual Hospitality & Design Expo in Las Vegas earlier this month. HD Expo is known for featuring the best new concepts and materials in design for the hospitality industry. The recently launched line of DuPont Wallcoverings, which feature a wide array of beautiful patterns and textures inspired by the look of natural fibers and protected by DuPont™ Tedlar® film, offered a truly unique solution for the design teams visiting the show. Tedlar® creates an invisible yet impervious barrier to the wallcovering, ensuring it is not damaged or faded by stains, scuffs, or repeated contact with harsh cleaning agents and bleaches.
"The feedback from the hospitality industry has been overwhelmingly positive," said Matt Urfali, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, DuPont™ Tedlar®. "Hotel rooms and public spaces are subject to regular cleaning after day-to-day wear and tear and typical wallpapers require frequent replacement. DuPont™ Tedlar® Wallcovering changes that."
The new DuPont™ Wallcoverings from Wallquest are available for both commercial and residential applications and will be sold under Wallquest's Seabrook® brand. In addition to the new extensive collection of patterns, Wallquest also offers digitally printed wallcoverings with diverse and customizable images with Tedlar® protection.
"Our booth at HD Expo contained a feature wall of digitally printed wallcovering designed by Jill Malek, a very talented designer, and protected by Tedlar®," said Brian Collins, Vice President, Wallquest Inc. "Having the Tedlar® barrier ensures that these eye-catching custom wallcoverings will be protected and look new wherever they are used."
Tedlar® films have more than 60 years of proven performance in the harshest environments. From resisting weathering on roofs, to keeping airplane interiors clean and new, Tedlar® film provides incomparable durability. Tedlar® protected wallcoverings are even resistant to the harshest chemical cleaners, including bleach and alcohol-based solvents, meaning even the toughest stains can be wiped off without any damage to the appearance of the wallcovering.
The new DuPont™ Tedlar® Wallcovering line is available to purchase through ecommerce and through Wallquest's global network of distributors. Product details, updates, and availability can be found at Wallquest.com.
