Consumer Comparisons 3M Window Film Vs. Eastman Window Film

Clearly many consumers both residential and commercial are familiar with the 3M Brand. We would hope that these consumers are familiar with Eastman Chemical‘s the spin-off company from Eastman Kodak.

What most consumers don’t know is that Eastman Chemicals is the world’s largest manufactuerer of solar and solar security window film.

Their brands include LLumar, Vista, SunTek and Huper Optik.

Still there may be a perception that 3M is the leader in window film based on their well known Scotch brands, etc and this inaccurate belief may skew some consumers into believing that the 3M window film is the top choice for residential and commercial films.

This is decidedly not the case in any objective comparison of product depth, capabilities or performance.

Eastman films out-perform the limited 3M choices in each major product category:

Solar Films:

The Eastman solar film portfolio includes a wider choice in light transmissions and appearance.

Reflective and dual reflective films as well as non-reflective ceramic and spectrally selective films. These Eastman films are all NFRC certified and can easily be compared to the very limited 3M NFRC database. In terms of security films used for life safety and asset protection there is really no comparison. Eastman’s LLumar film meets all critical testing requirements including GSA, DOD and ASTM.

Choices include several neutral choices, silver and several dual reflective security films as well as thicker coatings of 7, 8, 11 ml or thicker for various applications.

The Huper Optik ceramic films are IR heat blocking choices ideal for deed restricted or gated communities. These films out-perform the 3M prestige series as they provide superior heat rejection and better glare control features. Additionally the clarity of the Eastman adhesives is superior to the 3M adhesives.

Huper Optik is dye free unlike the aforementioned Prestige films so the heat filtering capabilities of the Huper Film will not degrade over time.
