Haven't ever used them. I've been using global from express window films for years and have been very pleased. They have their films and prices listed in their website. Solar fx is also pretty big here. They also have some good films to choose from.

Hi twofacetinting. :welcome Welcome to the forum.

I'm gonna go the neutral route, and say that you need to get you a few samples and see what shrinks and installs best for you.

I would also recomend doing your research on your film, and who you are getting it from.

I recommend going with a film, and company that will stand behind their product. It shouldn't be hard to figure out who those people are. Think about it,, if you haven't heard of them very much and can't find any info on them, then it might not be the right choice. There are a bunch of films out there.....there is also a bunch of threads on here to help you figure it out. If you have any problems just do what you are doing, and ask. Good luck. :beer

Not that I am one to preach, but I do find your post interesting.  So are you starting a tinting business out of the blue?  Or do you have an installer?  Are you the installer?  Have you ever installed?  Just seems like a whim by your post and knowing how much of a learning curve it has been for me, who usually has a pretty straight up learning curve with automotive things, I hate for you to jump into a big expense and then realize it is a lot more involved than you realize.  I have had friends ask me if I was gonna get an LLC and do it, etc, and I said, "sure that is a possibility, but for right now I am just doing a lot of side jobs for people I know, extended associates, etc."  Taking it public would be when I am comfortable enough to call it almost "second nature" where a "difficult job" is few and far between, or I know how to avoid them...lol.

Bham: Awesome! I really appreciate the feedback, it really helps a lot!

Dakota21601: I am an installer myself and I have 2 others who will work with me. I worked with 3M and SolarGaurd products. In which 3M has great quality but a little too pricey for and their customer service is absolutely terrible. So, I cam across Solar Free and I have heard some good things and bad things but just wanted to ask around and see what film would be the best to start out and work my way up.

EFFORTEQUALSRESULTS: Thank you! I will call asap!

Bham nailed it however, you do want confirmation of color stable dye technology (which generation is critical too), shrinkability, and handling characteristics.

 

Also, focus on carrying ceramic and carbon based products as these have moved quickly into the industry of late. Although I would caution you one this because, many of the latest carbon-ceramic products are from offshore mannies with limited track record in terms of adhesive longevity under the solar absorption extremes these type products are subjected to.
