Thoughts on a local film company film

Recommended Posts

As I do far too often ... a quick glance and I thought metint was resurrected (only old time members will get this). :hot

 

Any tint shop reselling film without a distributor agreement with the mfr'er of the film product, voids the mannies warranty and thereby becomes solely responsible for any warranty given to the buyer (another tinter or shop) and likewise for the consumer. :eyebrows

Sounds like a creative ad to me. New member. General questions, in depth info about his "friends film", continues to defend his friends film. 

I'm not in any way defending the film. I joined to ask yalls opinion because like yall have said, its important to get quality film. I was just asking if i should give the dude a chance. But i guess ill go with solar guard or suntek

If those are the two you have as alternates, may I suggest Solar Gard over ST.

 

Or maybe solar fx. 

 

Is it true sputtering is harder to heat shrink? I know it lasts longer.

Sputtering is simply another way to metallize film; it is not superior or inferior to vacuum (or vapor) coating metal processes. In Solar Grads case, yes I have heard their sputtered film can be difficult to shrink when compared to say, a LLumar sputtered film. Eastman owns the LLumar brand (among others) and is the largest mfr'er of other private brands and components to make one's own brand. A supplier will not divulge who actually makes their products or components unless it is one of the major players. Edit: to clarify. Only the major players will state they make their own film. Very few private brands will divulge which of the major players might in fact put their film together (non disclosures protect that info).

 

SolarFX is another solid film brand to go with.

Not harder to apply however, you will see a difference in heat forming. Straight dyed film shrink faster.

Yea I am, but what's the point of replying or being on a forum if you just say "newbees... lol" and provide no value? 

  You want value..read my first reply and take it to the bank. I'm 35 years in this business...I have forgotten more about film than most will ever know. Reboxers are a dime a dozen..or cheaper. They come and go with their first film failure cycle..then .."newbies" like yourself are stuck with countless numbers of warranty claims and a "friend" in the business who has no way to compensate you for the work... but..hey...he's your buddy..so go for it.......
