Graphene-Enhanced Films Launched
Stek Automotive, a U.S-based film technology developer, has launched a nano-ceramic window film, Nex, which contains graphene as well as tungsten and antimony tin oxide.
The graphene-enhanced nano-ceramic window films are said to provide clarity as well as UV-and glare-reduction, and effectively prevents heat from reaching vehicle interiors, according to the
company. By blocking up to 95% of visible interior light, Nex offers passenger privacy, while its 92% sun glare reduction rate reduces eye strain. According to the company, nanoparticles of tungsten and antimony tin oxide (ATO) are dispersed throughout its proprietary structure. These materials are known infrared absorbers, which prevent heat from reaching the window’s interior. NEX also contains graphene, which accelerates the rate of heat dissipation dramatically.
Antimicrobial Films Keeps Customers Safe
Designed to be replaced easily, Solar Gard Antimicrobial Films provide a virtually invisible barrier that protects flat surfaces from permanent damage. They also feature BioCote®, a proprietary silver ion technology, which is applied during the manufacturing process of these films, according to the company.
Silver’s scientifically proven antimicrobial properties protect these films from the negative effects of microbes by inhibiting their growth on the protected film’s surface. The company noted that Silver is one of the most widely used technologies in the world.
Shading Only When You Need It With Photochromic Window Film
Dynamic Glass Products released a new photochromic window film, which it says provides just the right amount of tint and performance. According to the company, one of the downsides of traditional window film is that it stays the same during the day and night. If your customers have a significant heat or glare issue during the day, they would need to go with a slightly darker film, to combat the problem. But, the problem is that the same film that helps you during the day, detracts from your view out of the windows at night by either being too dark or too reflective.
Some of the new photochromic window film’s features include having: the longest warranty in the industry, the highest UV rejection when compared to transitional window film, no up-front dealer fee or initial purchase quantity required, very short leads times, flexible purchase quantities from ¼ rolls to full rolls, and having U.S. based manufacturing, shipping, customer service and technical support.
