Final meter installed at 20%


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a film that consistently installs at or slightly above 20% for medical exemptions. I typically install qdp30 but generally speaking that has been getting it to 26/27 for some reason. Anyone have a recommended brand that would get me a little closer to the cut off?

I'm sure you're not going to want to switch to 3M but the FX Premium 25 meters at 20% installed pretty consistently, I've seen it as dark as 18 and as light as 22 but for the last year or so it seems to be leaning darker just coming off the roll. The new Obsidian line also lists a 25 but I haven't played with that shade yet, it is color stable though and a bit cheaper than the FXPM so that's an improvement.

Still, haven't played with the sample roll yet of Obsidian.

Im just going to rotate it in as I use up my FXPM stock so it'll probably be a few more months before I'm really using it, just don't move near as much FX as I used to.
