Please enlighten me, is it true that good exterior window films are structured like this?

 Mfrs hold their construction formulas pretty close to the vest. That said, Hanita was really the pioneer in the field, IMO it is primarily due to the fact that their large presence overseas required them to develop film that can be applied on the outside..because triple pane glass is far more commonplace in places outside the US. As well as other high performance glass types that are not receptive to interior film. 

 Companies like Eastman etc slap their AG coating on their films..and call it exterior film.. it may hold up longer than their standard SR coating..but is certainly not on par with Hanitas design.

Thanks for sharing Tom, please kindly allow me to rephrase my questions. 

I was told that reputable exterior films require a layer of CAP-sheet to be removed from the film, after it is applied to the glass. 

Example: 
Step 1: Remove Liner

Step 2. Apply Film to glass

Step 3. Remove Cap-Sheet.

Is this true?
