Car Enthusiasm

By Avery Dennison— Booth #52119

A love of cars can border on obsession and this year at SEMA booth #52119, Avery Dennison celebrates this passion with a showcase of its full breadth of films and solutions, such as automotive window films, wrapping films and paint protection films. Its product line-up will be available and on display. A team of Avery Dennison experts will be on hand to answer questions and help determine the best products and installation techniques for your auto restyling business.

Connecting with Core

By Eastman—Booth #52051

Eastman Performance Films is excited to reconnect with industry friends, installers and dealers in Las Vegas. In November, the company will showcase its SunTek Evolve and its Core Cutting Software. Evolve is SunTek’s next evolution in IR-blocking tint. Featuring advanced heat-blocking performance, Evolve is one of the first products in the SunTek portfolio to feature its reformulated SR coating. The result is improved scratch-resistance and increased glide for easier handling. This film also has the advantage of enhanced heat-shrinking performance for quicker, better installations.

The company’s Core Cutting Software offers a comprehensive library of thousands of professionally-designed tint and PPF patterns—with 90% rated at four to five stars by users. Powerful, easy-to-use pattern customization features, including Plus One-Click Badge and Sensor Removal, can help save users time and boost productivity.

STEK Marks Product Expansion

By STEK—Booth #52193

STEK is expanding its lineup of Nex window films, which incorporate graphene. The graphene nanoparticles infused in the film boost the film’s heat dissipation and drastically slows the inside of the car from heating up, per the company.

With the goal of allowing more people to experience the company’s premium windshield products, STEK will also hold live product demonstrations.
