If you want Spectrally Selective options to compete with V Kool 40/70, CP has them.
If you want something to compare to Huper's Stark, CP has it.
I didn't know that CP films made spectrally selective films. I am very curious what they currently have that is comparable to V-Kool and Huper Optik Ceramic films. Please post the VLT and SER numbers so we can do some comparison.
What is the sq. ft. cost for those high end films from CP?
I guess what most people are comparing to is the ATR charcoal with the HP charcoal as they really are very similar. Dollar for dollar, you can't beat Suntek films. We will just have to see in the long run how well it holds up.

1. Big difference between converter and manufacturer. CP is the only vertically integrated manufacturer; I.e., able to control all aspects of the process under one roof, which dramatically improves quality and thereby increasing cost of goods sold.
1. the quality control that flies out Commonwealth's door is far� inferior to that that CP delivers.�
2. Technology cost.....
Converter's outsource for components from manufacturer's, ordering to their own specs and do not have the same level of quality control over a component, being delivered, a manufacturer has. Converter's leach from others to gain a market position (Kinda like that low-ball tinter we all loath down the street).
Buy a coating and laminating machine yourself, source your components from the big guys, choose a name for your film, and presto... you are in the game. Profilon is a good example of this.
2. Technology costs alright... buy a brand new DVD writer today compared to a few years from now (after others get in the game and make their own writer) and see the first DVD developed get clobbered and bashed by the gold diggers wanting their fair share. Then watch the defections from that original.

I think Llumar's ATR is a bit grainy and has a bit of an orange peel look to it.
I don't have the same problem with Suntek HP. I use both films.
If Suntek HP will last 3-4 yrs. on a vehicle then I will have appeased 90+ percent of my customer base at a signifigantly lower cost to myself.
Those are the types of numbers I'm most interested in.
I used to think people cared about what brand you were putting on their vehicle and I suppose a small segment still do but the majority of people shopping auto tint are shopping price and minimum warranty.
