DuPont announced a $120 million multi-phase production expansion for its high-performance Tedlar(R) polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) product line. Site selections for this phase of the Tedlar(R) capacity expansion are complete, and construction has begun for new monomer and resin facilities at the DuPont Louisville, Ky., and Fayetteville, N.C., sites, respectively. The facilities are scheduled to start up in mid-2010.
DuPont anticipates that the photovoltaic market will grow rapidly over the next several years, and expects that overall sales of its products in the photovoltaic industry will exceed $1 billion by 2012.
