Window Tinting Comparison Eastman Vs. 3M Window Film

Perception Vs. Reality.

Many consumers are familiar with the 3M Brand.

Small wonder because 3M makes thousands of products that consumers use every day; from Post-It Notes to Scotch Tape.

Home and business owners may be less familiar with Eastman Chemicals although they certainly know Eastman Kodak.

Eastman Chemicals separated from Eastman Kodak more than 25 years ago.

Eastman Chemicals is the world leader in window film technology, manufacturing and sales.

Advanced Film Solutions provides superior installations of Eastman window film sold under the LLumar, Vista, Huper Optik, and SunTek trademarks.

Flat Glass- residential and Commercial window film:

PhysicalPropertiesOnePagerL2349(Jan2020)

Eastman Chemicals has a broad array of light transmissions and films of varied aesthetics.

Reflective films, dual reflective films and non reflective coatings in a wide range.

All of the residential and commercial choices have been NFRC certified for veracity in anticipated performance.

The 3M portfolio is extremely limited in terms of light transmissions and appearance.

For example our LLumar dual reflectives which out-perform the 3M Night Vision series is available in darker and lighter versions. The Vista films are also dual reflective and are also available in more choices of light filtering.

In terms of security film there is simply no comparison.

Our LLumar and Vista films are available in stronger 8 ML versions in dozens of light transmissions compared to 3M’s thinner limited security films.

Our Eastman Huper Optik series has several critical advantages over the 3M Prestige series.

Huper Optik has no dyes in the composition of the film. This ensures durability and colar stability. The 3M Prestige films employ dyes and these light filtering chemicals can be scratched off of the film quite easily.

The adhesive superiority of Huper Optik’s clarity easily out performs the 3M Prestige film.

Our Huper Optik films are available in darker versions (20%-30%) where glare rejection and maximum heat rejection is crucial. Our Huper Drei is the best heat rejecting 35% film in the industry and easily out-performs the 3M Prestige 40.

Tampa Bay, Orlando Window Film Consumer Comparisons

Advanced Film Solutions is proud to promote the  Eastman Chemical window film products.

What most consumers don’t know is that Eastman Chemicals is the world’s largest manufacturer 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.

col

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 and European Smash standards.

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.

Prestige Tampa Bay, Orlando Homes Demand Ceramic Films

Homeowners know how effective window film can be for maintaining a cooler, energy efficient UV free home.

Unfortunately many of the past window film choices required a reflective finish that while effective had a negative aesthetic change to windows and sliders.

This reflective appearance also became an issue for deed restricted homes in gated communities and condos.

Advanced Film Solutions solves your heat issues, glare UV and rising cooling costs with ceramic IR heat blocking coatings from Huper Optik.

Huper Optik is a patented ceramic film that is manufactured by Eastman Chemical’s in Germany.

These films are dye free and durable.

Huper Optik has the best light to heat blocking ratio of any window film.

Huper Optik coatings are less reflective than glass so your views won’t be compromised and your warranty will provide a lifetime of comfort.

Home Security Protective Window Film For Florida Homes

Throughout the long history (nearly 60 years) of the window film industry it became evident that thicker security glazing window film coatings provided a significant level of protection against forced entry, smash and grab crimes and flying debris.

12992_618168704883271_1326451465_n

The Federal government has employed these films to protect GSA and Military personnel and property around the USA as well as overseas.

Blast protection (mitigation) particularly after Oklahoma City focused on a specified level of protection and Federal officials determined a baseline level of performance expectations that many manufacturers have met (documented testing available.)

Advanced Film Solutions is unique by offering multiple brand choices but all of our selections have met or exceeded the DoD and GSA Testing requirements.

These choices include Eastman Chemical’s LLumar, Vista and SunTek security films.

Madico and Sunscape security films.

Armorcoat by Saint-Gobain

Johnson Laminating

Hanita Films manufactured in Israel.

There are certainly aesthetic differences as one might expect between these brand offerings. Metallic privacy and silver films, clear or lightly tinted iterations as well as multiple light transmissions and levels of reflective or non-reflective.

security-window-film-3

In all cases Advanced Film Solutions offers an optional but highly recommended Dow 995 attachment system that anchors the film, frames and glass into one complete system.

We should note that our single competition 3M Safety and Security Film does NOT offer any documented safety or security advantage over any of the scores of choices we install on a daily basis.

There is absolutely no advantage for 3M or performance benefit measurable by any independent testing; nor can 3M provide any documented advantage.

In fact the 3M portfolio is extremely limited in the selections offered in terms of appearance, light transmissions and reflectivity.

Why glazing security films:

The bottom line is the efficacy value of these coatings. Thicker 8 ML coatings hold glass in place against force and physical attack. They are recommended for blast protection and store burglary protection. These films are employed by school districts to prevent intrusion by armed perpetrators.

These films have been tested and have met wind storm small and medium large missile impact testing and cycling .

Most home and business owners require solar versions of these films to lower cooling costs or provide privacy.  The dual benefit of a solar security combination film improves the ROI immeasurably.
