Tint Film to stay away from, What are the best Brands to Carry/Buy

20 posts in this topic

Hi

I was wondering what are those Brands that you see that might be $30 Cheaper for the Roll but in the end are Garbage

I've been looking on this site for a month now before I signed up and hear all sorts of Brands Named but Never Really Hear if there Good or Not

I know you can't say what the Best Brand of Film there is to use, As everyone has there own Choice etc to what they like and Prefer , I’m In the Mobile Electronics Field and get asked all the time what’s the Best Amp. Subwoofer to buy.

I know…LOL

Since I don't have that 30 years of Experience in Tinting to know a Cheap Brand from a Good one I thought I would ask and Hope to get a list Made by you FINE members the Good and Bad

I've only Used the llumar tint Brand for when I do tinting with Great Results

Hope some of you Members Can Help me out with a List

All the major brands are pretty good, comes down to personal preference.

One person might have a heckuva time shrinking brand A where another person never has a problem with that brand.

It seems to be a common thought to stay away from the big retailers that sell it.

All of us chiming in with our decisions.... Opinnions... Will probably confuse you. Hence----- major brands. :beer

pretty much any of the big brands are good.

solar gard

sun gard

llumar

hanitatek

johnsons

madico

mmm

global

huper

valuetint.com

personally I heavily sell solar gards supreme and hp smoke lines. def my two personal favs

although I just received a sample from valuetint, and I must say it does shrink and work just like any of the major brands films. def a good choice for a film thats a little on the cheaper side. but my solar gard rep always hooks me up with some specials like a 20' roll for 30 dollars.

Personally, this is what "I" consider good/bad to me based on product quality, ease of shrinkage and color matched to factory.

Good: Suntek, Llumar, Huper Optik, SolarGard

Bad: Madico, sungard

This is "my" list.........

judd from valuetint just sent me a sample roll of the sirius film and I received it last wednesday. I have only had a chance to do one side window with it so far, but as it is it seems to have a very nice, very black color on the outside, and just a slight bluish/ brown hue looking out. the roll is the 20% sirius, and so far it seems to be a decent film. obviously there is no real info as far as the warranty is concerned yet, but the application is just like any other film.
