Eastman Evolves

Eastman Performance Films, LLC has launched SunTek® Evolve window-tint, its next-generation solution in window-tint technology. The product is designed to block 99% of harmful cancer-causing UV rays and can reject up to 94% of heat-surging infrared rays, allowing for cooler cabins and reduced interior fading.

The new product combines a proprietary coating for easy installation with ceramic-film technology to offer extreme heat rejection.

Eastman also continues to highlight LLumar Valor, the latest in the line of LLumar technologies. Valor can repair surface scratches using heat from the sun or a car engine—protecting vehicles and helping them look newer longer. Valor is easy to clean and has up to 25% more stain and environmental resistance, compared to other top brands on the market, according to the company. Using Eastman Tetrashield™ technology, Valor blends paint protection and ceramic coating benefits into one durable product.

Eco-Friendly Film Energizes Environment

CreativeFX™ and Source One Digital announced the addition of Eco-Friendly window film to their decorative window film portfolio. Eco-Friendly film is a new polyester, optically clear and environmentally friendly window film.

Both companies promote EcoFriendly window film as providing optical transparency and removability as well as offering several benefits that support green architecture design principles. According to the companies, these include a contribution to LEED priorities, a reduction of plastic waste and a reduction of energy resources.

One Way to Print on Film

Contra Vision’s High Definition (HD) One-way Vision Perforated Window Film enables graphics to be printed onto film and applied to glass for advertising, branding, architectural design, one-way privacy and solar control. The perforated film also allows a clear view through the glass from the other side.

The company has earned recognition for the new innovation. Paul Griffiths, Deputy Lieutenant for Greater Manchester, presented the team with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation at its Bramhall office.

Previously, the company was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Overseas Trade in 2014 and another in 2015 for Innovation.
