What are the benefits of nano carbon/ceramic films? And how can they c

Nano carbon/ceramic films offer much better fade resistance over even some of the best current dyed film technology.

They also boast higher performance both in TSER but even better results in IR reduction.

Nano carbon and nano carbon/ceramic films are already causing much excitement in our industry!

They have been around a while now but due to ever constant improvements in technology they are becoming more and more widely accepted and used. They have for years been more expensive, thus not as diverse in our market. However those prices have been dropping due to advances in efficiency in production and sourcing/out-sourcing from global suppliers and distributors. Much of the most advanced films are now coming from the Asian market specifically.

What are your thoughts on this and in what ways do you see these advances changing your local market and sales approach/strategy?

Not exactly the same topic we were already on 2shoes! ;-) lol

I just wanted opinions! I don't always debate!

I appreciate your encyclopedic knowledge btw. Would just like you to get your creative juices flowing! :-)

I'm pretty sure we've wore the subject out before you arrived here, so many are likely reluctant to chime in on marketing strategy, etc. More so because nano technology isn't all that and a bag of chips today... it's been around since the late 90's. Carbon has been used for the past decade or more. It's simply another means of controlling solar energy and giving color to film products. In other words, the WOW has lost its ummm, box, save a few being used to sell it as the latest and greatest.

 

I remember the days I first arrived here all enthused and pumped up about LLumar films. Boy was I ever schooled back then when the active membership was somewhat large and more bullish. Today I do not come here to promote product and if you are around long enough you will see too that many are turned off by it. It's not much different to those spammers coming around and taking up several threads attempting to move product.

 

Today, I see TD.com operating more so under attraction rather than promotion. Oh and ah, my creative juices were sucked out like a vampire feeding on blood when Courtaulds/CPfilms went from operating like a mom and pop owned corporation to a publicly owned corporation. I became a  :zombie which is mostly why I find myself unemployed for the first time 45 years. Edit: It was my own undoing and I hold no ill-will to anyone outside of self. Cheers!  :cool

Cool bud! Well I am new to TD but not the industry. I'm a well versed veteran.

As I said I'm not here to promote a product but an ever improving technology.

Perhaps this subject has been hashed over quite a bit already but in learning, there is always room for fresh perspective. Popular theory does not always equal accurate theory.

DONT LOSE YOUR ZEAL!

I have already thought of a few more tests to conduct!

More specifically involving wind! Will be glad when summer heat arrives again!

I have a battery of tests that I have conducted for the benefit of solely my shop and customer base.

I think that now I will do those again but video them and the results.

Sometimes as insiders to this industry, we get "stuck" in certain frames of thought.

I'm just saying we should always be open minded to possibilities that may have not occurred to us before.

I enjoy trading ideas and look forward to learning more from you and others here.

We may not agree on everything, but imagine how "Zombie " like we would be if we did!

(Employed by those with no ready access to color stable dyed base film).

 

Nobody can predict the future, but as of this date and time, a quality color stable dyed base film is still king.  Eastman just acquired Commonwealth and one of the primary benefits was to increase their dying capacity.  Garware increased it's own dying capacity in the past few years.  More than one major USA manufacturer is said to be close to launching their own dye line.  Each of these instances represents an enormous and long term capital investment.  You really have to stop and ask yourself why these majors would be making these investments if the nano/carbon alone was the future of the industry.  Right now,  the "smart money" is still in the CS Dyed base film.

 

A hybrid of a quality dyed base film augmented with nano may ultimately prove to be best.  The metal has been taken out the nano has been put in.  It handles the signal issues and increases the TSER by virtue of the improved IR spectral performance.

 

Time will tell.

bbv,

 

I am very, very interested in this.  Can I swing by to observe?  Lunch on me.

 

I live in Florida BTW.
