    IR film Vs Ceramic?

    thanks for all the info fat cat. I really apprieciate it. ITO refers to Indium Tin Oxide ATO refers to Antimony Tin Oxide TiN refers to Titanium Nitride Here's the science: Given the same heat reduction, ITO will offer the highest VLT. Given the same heat reduction, ATO is the cheapest technolog. ITO and TiN are more expensive.

    Thanks for the info fat cat. what is ITO and ATO. Well i guess i will atleast get to see one of the best laminating line. Any idea of any other manufacturers that show more of the process?

    Makes sense shawn. Thanks for all the info. I'm happy with solarfx but always open to learning more. Now what about SHGC. What's the scoop with that?

    Yeah one of the guys I know down here has Raynos carbon ceramic and said he's already getting film fading out after a year. This sounds like the same hoo-hah Rayno is spitting out to everyone. They claim to have found a way to make shaded -- non laminated-- window film with no dyes or metals.

    What technology do you prefer to go with? It doesn't have to be a Ceramic to block heat. For example, Huper Optik Performa is a Spectral Filtering Technology film that outperforms Llumar CTX Ceramic at several VLT's. 3M Crystalline outperforms all of the Ceramics and it is a Multi-Layer Optical Technology film. It is just the technology they use in Wincos which is not specifically stated on their website. I checked Lintec's website (maker of Wincos from Japan), they do not specifically state a technology either.

    I have a 70 Wincos and 35% FXtreme the I compare.

    Thanks for the reply Bham. You have any idea why the Wincos 70 blocks almost the same heat on my box as my FXtreme? I know dynamicappearance says it's not ceramic so what in it makes it blocks as much heat as my Ceramic?

    That's fine, my feelings didn't get hurt. I guess that's a good thing that I actually got a call huh. But your right it is suntek, sorry for the auto correct. FYI that is why I posted this, not to argue about how you spell Suntek. I wanted to get a better understanding by some fellow tinters that are willing to share some information on what are the differences if any. But thanks for your reply. It blocks almost as much heat as my ceramic so I figured maybe it was.

    I have no interest in aswf. I said I would like to see how film is made and that sense I'm going to sema and they have a manufacturer there I would like to take a walk through there facility and get a better understanding of how it's made. For example one of the reps for Wincos kept calling it IR film when I would say ceramic. That made me think maybe there is a difference because every time I say ceramic he says IR. I'm not sure what you consider "quality" window films but I've got calls from llumar, Madico, Express, Suntech, and many more off brands.

    So there are some pretty smart guys on here and I'm sure i can get a good explanation of the difference of the films. Is there a difference between a "IR film" and a "True Ceramic film" and which do you prefer and why? I get calls from film manufactures all the time and say there films are better to go with because of whatever reason. I unfortunately haven't been to anyone's manufacturing companies to see the process. Fortunately i plan on going to ASWF when i go to Sema this year to get a better idea of how film is manufactured in Vegas. Thanks for any info.

    If you go to the appointment tab, go to online booking and it gives you a booking site Url. You can then Go to your website and put the code on any page and it should pop up.
