    Match Old Gold Film

    Sun Gard made a Sutter-coated Gold film that oxidized in humid environments.

    Full Windsheild 35% with 5% strip?

    I have found that most requests made for Dark tint on windshield are made by those who are: 1) Young; 2) Male; 3) think that the most serious consequence possible is a fix-it ticket 4) likely don't have any assets of consequence to lose if the reductionist thinking illustrated by belief #3 turns out to be wrong. 5) and would throw the tint shop owner under the bus in a heartbeat despite their claim they don't need a receipt if they thought it would save their own ass.

Jaguar Land Rover could use ultraviolet light to kill germs in your car https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/jaguar-land-rover-ultraviolet-light/ Sometime ago a Korean manufacture sales rep made a one and done post (here) about how only their film can block UV-C rays. Maybe they better not brag about that characteristic too loudly now?

    Llumar curling

    Eastman has owned SunTek for a while now so why not ask them how they manage to have less problems?
  5. Nice pics, I'll bet it required some organization skills to avoid making too many trips to the ground!
  6. Thanks, I didn't remember that one, but with tax and shipping its pushing nearly three a square. And if the price ain't enough, I need 126 lineal feet of 30.5" width and the only roll size I see Hanita stocking is a 60" which runs $1,400 a piece w/tax. I can see why the film cost as much as it does though with the following info considered: "XTRM is a new generation of extended-life exterior window films. Its exceptional durability ensures energy-efficient performance year after year. In fact, Hanita warrants XTRM exterior films for up to 15 years*! Developed to tackle commercial projects where a long-term service period is critical to payback, XTRM delivers outstanding levels of heat rejection and UV block, and is compatible with nearly all types of glazing." I'm considering Vinyl but with the odd triangle shapes these skylights have (triangles and dog house shapes) I'm a little worried about thermal breaks and hesitate to use Black Vinyl. Anyone know how much light the below product allows through? 3M 7725 90 ANTIQUE WHITE HIGH PERFORMANCE SCOTCHCAL https://www.nglantz.com/2220079/Product/3M_7725
  7. It is, I forgot to mention, only possible to do an External application so I've not been able to source a darker than 20% external film. I normally use SunTek and Hanita.
  8. I have some pyramidal shaped shaped sky lights to do. The reason I mention the shape is they really get some exposure and by design capture light to send downward to the bellow office space. Customer rejected the 20% Hanita XtraZone as not dark enough. My goal is to block light to the 5 or 10% range with a 5 year warranty material. Is 80/20 one way perf a 20% VLT? And does any major manufacture make a 5 year perf? Otherwise maybe a Whiteout film for an opaque option?
  9. You know Mike keeps a post it note on his computer of members who say disparaging things about the above mentioned company!
  10. Some interesting facts in an article published by Fire Safe Marin in this article: "Depending on the type of glass, a window that is exposed to flames may break after only 1 to 3 minutes of exposure to intense heat or flames and allow flames and embers inside." https://www.firesafemarin.org/hardening-your-home/windows Another must read for about wildfire and glass is found it this article about a firefighter who lost his life in the cab of his truck and also a bulldozer operator. Both after windows shattered. "As hot air entered the cab of Dozer 2, the operator repositioned the dozer and parked next to Dozer 3. When Dozer 3’s windows shattered, airborne glass entered the operator’s eyes. Dozer 3 stopped on Buenaventura Boulevard and deployed his fire curtains." https://www.redding.com/story/news/2018/08/15/firefighter-died-while-trapped-carr-fire-tornado-report-says/1002748002/

    Toxic dryer sheets anti static back glass

    re: toxicity People just don't understand that just because they used the sheets x amount of time with no ill effect they are "safe" for everyone else to use. Tell you what, try doing the amount of tobacco, booze, heroin and cocaine that Kieth Richards has proven is "safe" and see how that works out for you.

    WTF! First bad review!

    If you report the review, do so in punjabi or whatever language they speak where Yelp out-sources the review moderators to.

    Silicone spray in window - good or bad?

    I've used silicone spray on all my Japanese cars with tint and I've not seen any tint failures over years of use. Silicone sealants can be used to edge seal residential and comnmericial tint so long as they are "neutral cure" type and that practice is supported by film manufactures.
