  1. How many owners with SEO and the words window tinting in their name get calls that ask "do you do window tinting"? So much for micro targeting.
  2. Last horizontal 48' pieces I did I measured down 14" from top and made my marks using a scrap piece of Oak trim cut to 14" so I didn't have to read the tape measure each time.
  3. One thing about cutouts is they are not getting easier as the LED bulbs are much more likely to cause light to escape the cut out area and be noticed.
  4. Like 3M it appears SolarFx specifies how much UV inhibitors to put in and where to put them as well as choosing to use weather-able polyester and opting for deep dye rather than cheaper methods. Re-boxers, it is my understanding, take for example Korean Film, and merely design a corporate identity system (logos and colors) to literally re-box an existing product. So to my way of thinking, those who call what SolarFx is doing re-boxing are not accurately describing what they have created by taking a hands on approach to combining existing sub-components into a product not sold elsewhere. The CarbonFx would be an example.
  5. There are two types of Caulk Neutral Cure and Acid Cure. For this purpose you need Neutral Cure. May require going to manufacture's website to verify which is which.
  6. SolarFx designs there films so by my mind it is not "reboxed" as some have stated.
  7. and the adhesives are now better on decent films.
  8. I've used Ultra for 5 years in a hot climate with no issues and I specifically choose it because it is not an entry level film. I don't think it is accurate to call SolarFx reboxed because it appears the film is made to their specification(s) and that would make it something else, correct? On the other hand, my previous manufacture's film out of Las Vegas seemed to fail about two years after the reports started coming in.
  9. BTW I think the Stratos is a damn fine film as are all Llumar products. I've never seen a consumer complain about a purchase of a fairly priced standard film's performance but we often see consumer complaints about whether they really got at Top Of The Line ceramic film by various manufactures. This leaves me to believe that either some shops substitute cheaper films after the Heat Lamp sales pitch, or the performance just isn't that much better than what the consumer has experienced with other products.
  10. When it comes to HP films with dye + Metal construction the TSER (total Solar Energy Rejection) spec for most 5% films is 61%. Ceramic films, not all of which are truly Ceramic but rather merely IR absorbing, reject 66% at the 5% shade. This is viewed as a shout it from the rooftops advancement of monumental significance and "new" although South Wall's V-Kool films were specially selective way back in the 1990s.
  11. Pacific States Felt http://www.pacificstatesfelt.net/materials.html Best to call (510) 783-0277
  12. Only for customers who are emphatic about wanting the darkest film available.
  13. Maybe Howard can make us some limo tint with VantaBlack. (it’s one of the darkest substances on Earth) https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/20/20813054/vantablack-ultrablack-black-material-surrey-nanosystems-carbon-nanotubes-science-materials
  14. Lots of tape on uline.com What is it marketed as?
  15. Sun Gard made a Sutter-coated Gold film that oxidized in humid environments.
