CPFilms and DuPont Teijin form alliance

CPFilms and DuPont Teijin Films have announced the formation of a new strategic relationship to work jointly to reduce injury and property damage due to flying glass.

This relationship includes joint development and marketing of protective window film products for the commercial and residential building markets.

Mylar polyester, a product of DuPont Teijin Films, will be exclusively used as a component of the Llumar and Vista line of safety and security films sold under the Magnum and Mirage brand names. Mylar possesses optimal properties for safety and security window film: physical strength to control shattering glass and outstanding optical properties for visual clarity.

Llumar Magnum safety window film is installed in US embassies, military bases, other government buildings and commercial facilities throughout the world, providing increased security and protection to employees and others. The new collaboration will expedite and extend marketing and development of Llumar Magnum safety and security films made with Mylar to enhance the performance of glass in the buildings market.

"The alliance between our companies will quickly strengthen technology and expertise to create a broader offering to commercial and residential markets," said Ken Vickers, president and CEO of CPFilms. "New products will continue to help control - and in some cases prevent - damage and injuries through expanded application of well designed safety and security window films."
