  2. We hope that our window film tinters and loved ones are well amid the COVID-19 outbreak. FilmTack is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all our customers and staff. We have issued face masks to all our staff and increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfection in our premises. In these challenging times, we have consulted professional medical personnel and prepared the following recommendations for our industry’s automotive tinting facilities: Provision of face masks for frontline staff who are liaising with customers in person. Use of United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered disinfectants that are leather/fabric-safe, to disinfect the driver's seat of vehicles before and after tinting. Enforce simple visitor crowd-management by encouraging pre-bookings to avoid servicing queues. Ideally, customers should return to collect the vehicle at a later stipulated timing and not wait at the Rest-Area. Implement additional safety protocols in showrooms and tinting facilities: Contract-Tracing by registering visitors/customer’s name, contact number, arrival date and time. Provide hand-disinfectants for visitors and customers. Temperature-Taking. Regular disinfection of showroom, especially tint-meter and heat demonstration kits with EPA-registered disinfectants. Disinfect the tinting bay after each vehicle is completed, with (low-cost) bleach solutions that are suitable for your facility’s floorings. Reduce or avoid off-site automotive tinting. If mobile tinting is demanded by customers, arrange for pick-up services by valets (with relevant insurance coverage). Facilities such as car dealerships with more tinters should consider staggering work shifts as part of internal Business Continuity Management (BCM). The welfare of our staff and customers are of paramount importance to our industry. The above recommendations are by no means exhaustive. We can all, do our utmost to ensure business continues as usual and safe. We wish you and your family the very best of health and continued well-being. Please be safe. FilmTack Pte Ltd
  3. I have only used Suntek's Exterior films in recent years and not came across versions with CAP-sheets. However, I heard from peers describing what @smartie2shoes shared.
  4. 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?
  5. Durability is weaker in the regions shaded yellow, orange & red. Technically, the same Windshield Protection Film can last longer in Northern Europe, Japan, US and Canada. Science doesn't lie.
  6. Happy New Year Dave! Please enlighten me, is it true that good exterior window films are structured like this? ____________________ Cap Sheet --------------------------------- Exterior Film --------------------------------- Liner ---------------------------------
  7. Yes sir, I tested several in recent years and it has been frustrating.
  8. That company is being honest. WPF can't last for many years as the windshield wipers will create minor scratches on SR and trigger the disintegration.
  9. Legality and driving safety will be an issue.
  10. Are you refering to 3M Dichroic Films? The reflection will look different on different glass, in different angles or different times of the day
  11. FLUORESCENT LIGHTING IRIDESCENCE ON WINDOW FILMS The iridescent phenomenon on window films under fluorescent lightings is commonly observed on window films with treated surfaces, for purposes including, but not limited to scratch protection, anti-reflection, anti-bacteria and/or visible light reduction etc. Varying, but less consistent, degree of iridescence can also be observed in non-fluorescent lightings. Observation & Cause Light rays appear to be bent (refracted) on the window film surface, creating a colorful rainbow or oil-slick appearance on thin films. T8 Lamps, Fluorescent tubes/lamp generates the strongest effect. The wavelength of these light sources either darkens (distorting the light rays) or brightens (overlapping the distorted light rays) the surface of the window films. Common Reference Names: • Iridescent Effect • Rainbow Effect • Thin Film Interference Please refer to enclosed reading materials for detailed explanation (Scientific Reference: Thin Film Interference) Primary Factors Affecting The Level Of Light Reflection/Refraction • Portion of Installed Film Like an oil-slick, some portion of the film can exhibit a stronger or weaker iridescent effect; it is possible to observe significant difference of the iridescence if “back-to-back” tints are not used by window panes of the same facing. • Viewing Angle of User Incident light is distorted at varying degrees when viewed from different angles; users will usually observe changing level of iridescence as they walk from the left to right of the tinted glass. • Distance from Light Source The positions, locations and quantity of the lightings affect the angle of incident light entering the film, which determines the reflection and refraction of light rays visible to the human eye; Iridescent on first glass panel can be different from the last on the same stretch of wall.
  12. Given the reflection, I believe it could be Suntek's Spectra Grey PS
  13. Good evening, We have a Japanese film of VLT 70% with high heat reduction Please let me know if the performance specifications are suitable. Thanks!
