  1. any Oakley fire iridium style tint?

    Legality and driving safety will be an issue.
  2. any Oakley fire iridium style tint?

    Are you refering to 3M Dichroic Films? The reflection will look different on different glass, in different angles or different times of the day https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Dichroic-Films-for-Architectural-Laminated-Glass/?N=5002385+3291680356&rt=rud
  3. Anyone Else Have This Issue??

    FLUORESCENT LIGHTING IRIDESCENCE ON WINDOW FILMS The iridescent phenomenon on window films under fluorescent lightings is commonly observed on window films with treated surfaces, for purposes including, but not limited to scratch protection, anti-reflection, anti-bacteria and/or visible light reduction etc. Varying, but less consistent, degree of iridescence can also be observed in non-fluorescent lightings. Observation & Cause Light rays appear to be bent (refracted) on the window film surface, creating a colorful rainbow or oil-slick appearance on thin films. T8 Lamps, Fluorescent tubes/lamp generates the strongest effect. The wavelength of these light sources either darkens (distorting the light rays) or brightens (overlapping the distorted light rays) the surface of the window films. Common Reference Names: • Iridescent Effect • Rainbow Effect • Thin Film Interference Please refer to enclosed reading materials for detailed explanation (Scientific Reference: Thin Film Interference) Primary Factors Affecting The Level Of Light Reflection/Refraction • Portion of Installed Film Like an oil-slick, some portion of the film can exhibit a stronger or weaker iridescent effect; it is possible to observe significant difference of the iridescence if “back-to-back” tints are not used by window panes of the same facing. • Viewing Angle of User Incident light is distorted at varying degrees when viewed from different angles; users will usually observe changing level of iridescence as they walk from the left to right of the tinted glass. • Distance from Light Source The positions, locations and quantity of the lightings affect the angle of incident light entering the film, which determines the reflection and refraction of light rays visible to the human eye; Iridescent on first glass panel can be different from the last on the same stretch of wall.
  4. Does anybody know what this is

    Given the reflection, I believe it could be Suntek's Spectra Grey PS https://www.suntekfilms.com/de/files/AM_Spec-Sheets_DE.pdf
  5. Matching Prestige 70

    Good evening, We have a Japanese film of VLT 70% with high heat reduction www.perfect70.com Please let me know if the performance specifications are suitable. Thanks!

    11. Getting the Design on Decorative Films Decorative films offers one of the highest durability among the products in our industry. There are two primarily techniques to get that design or repeat-pattern on the films: Electro-etched Surfaces Electro-etching on polymer surface is a manufacturing technique that was first-developed for other industries. The original-intent was to convert certain areas of an hydrophobic plastic surface to hydrophilic. This facilities the coating of micro-electronics electro-plating, spray-painting or surface-coatings on the electro-etched plastic surface. Visually, a transparent electro-etched surface will appear matte-white after the process; creating an avenue to create uniform designs on clear polyester. Electro-etched surfaces are very durable and provide certain level of resistance against solvents (for a reasonable time-frame), as shown in the photo on left Printed Surfaces For years, small-scale inkjet printers allow the printing of any designs on films for decorative purposes. Most decorative window films adopt on this printing-technology and apply the weatherable ink on the UV-resistance adhesive between the the window film and glass. As shown in the photo on left, the printed designs of decorative films can only be removed by solvents after the film is removed from the glass.

    10. Dual-Reflective Window Films as Cost-Effective Energy-Saving Solution for Home & Offices Glass as a building material, in place of concrete walls has become popular in recent years due to its aesthetic appeal, and its capacity to provide a feel of open space. However, according to the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code, the fenestration area recommended to be limited to 40% of the wall area, because window panes cause higher solar heat gain in buildings. Energy consumption in building is particularly high due to the air-conditioning requirements during hot summer. Today, technological advancement is giving home owners and offices an energy-saving solution for retrofitting their windows. Cooling costs in summer months can be reduced, as Dual-Reflective window films greatly reduce the amount of heat entering through the windows by significantly minimizing the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of glazing systems. Illustrative Example: Film Models Maxpro Dual-Reflective 5 Maxpro Dual-Reflective 15 Maxpro Dual-Reflective 25 Maxpro Dual-Reflective 35 Visible Light Transmitted 8% 14% 27% 38% Visible Light Reflected-Exterior 56% 48% 27% 13% Visible Light Reflected-Interior 15% 21% 14% 8% Glare Reduction 91% 84% 70% 58% Solar Heat Gain Coefficient 0.20 0.25 0.40 0.55 Total Solar Energy Rejection 80% 75% 60% 45% Ultraviolet Rejection >99% >99% >99% >99% Dual-Reflective Window Films, as with the above example, offers an affordable solution for higher heat reduction and lower interior reflectance. It is a dry-adhesive product with superior durability; translating to long-term cost-savings.

    9. Trends in Sputtered Film Technology Earlier sputtered films in our industry, have been subjected to limitations such as dependence on reflectivity to provide better TSER. However, high reflectance might be undesirable for certain applications and affects building aesthetics. Copper and silver, are still the most cost-efficient substitutes for gold, to provide high heat reduction at higher VLTs and their oxidation-risk used to be higher. Today, Sputtered Films have improved with significantly-lower oxidation-risk and the reputable versions in our industry are providing high heat reduction with <10% Visible Light Reflectance. The next generation of sputtered films in our industry will continue to offer superior heat reduction & durability. Most importantly, the new versions will likely to be priced at a fraction of today's cost (given the same VLT and heat reduction), due to the emergence of ""boutique" metal compounds with low oxidation-risk, low reflectivity and good heat reduction. In sputtering science, it costs exponentially higher to achieve the same heat reduction at higher VLT; and the application of exotic metal compounds will not defy this law. As such, the impact of the cost-lowering will likely be felt-most in darker sputtered films of VLT 5 - 40%

    8. Signal-Friendly Window Films Metallic elements used in some sputtered or metallized window films can significantly weaken GPS, cell-phone and radio signals. Some manufacturers of metallized films like Silver 70 or Silver 50 (refering to Aluminium metallized), do explain that these tints will not completely block GPS, electronics and communication signals. but we should not convey the same message to consumers, claiming that a particular film "might" affect these signals. Signal strength varies with vehicle speed and location, so there will be times when a borderline tint cause malfunction in GPS devices or electronic toll-collection systems. Therefore, tinters should be clear to consumers and simply identify tints as "SIGNAL-FRIENDLY" OR "NOT SIGNAL-FRIENDLY". Advanced sputtered window films (NOT SIGNAL-FRIENDLY) can be relatively non-reflective these days, you may consider using a Plasma Ball to differentiate them. Remarks for Architectural Tinting: Most metallized window films will not significantly affect modern WIFI signals such as 802.11ac Therefore, we can assure users that tinting metallized films on interior office partitions will not have any noticeable impact on WIFI signals.

    Very good understanding my friend. Here's some science behind it: Generally speaking, given the same VLT and base polyester....................... 1. Dip-dyed films should have lower haze than Carbon or Ceramic films. 2. The same carbide in a processed molecular form can offer lower haze but cost a lot more. The process costs more than the ingredient 3. However for some ceramics, the processed version as another molecular compound can offer a lower price for the same heat reduction (due to lower loadings required). just my 2 cents
