Window film technology has evolved over the decades starting in the 1960’s until today.
Advances have been made in adhesives, polyester clarity, coatings and nanotechnology.
Today’s 2021 hybrid energy savings heat blocking window film incorporates the technological improvements into durable high clarity and effective customer directed solutions.
At the forefront of these innovative thin film developments are the team at Eastman Chemical.
No other window film manufacturer is as invested in high performance film solutions as this American based chemical giant.
LLumar, Vista and Huper Optik window film is manufactured by Eastman Chemical Company, a global specialty chemicals company founded by George Eastman of Eastman Kodak in 1920.
Eastman produces a broad range of advanced materials and specialty chemicals that are found in thousands of household and industrial products that people use every day.
Eastman has one of the largest and most integrated window and high-performance coated film manufacturing sites in the world, serving customers in nearly 100 countries around the world.
The entrepreneurial initiative of Julius Hermes in 1956 was the historical cornerstone of the LLumar brand. Known as the father of dyed PET (polyethylene terephthalate)—the polyester now used in most window films—he was the right person with the right product at the right time to move the industry forward into the thriving business it is today.
Clearly homeowners in tropical high heat climates like Tampa Bay have an acute need for methods and tools to make their homes cooler.
Window film is a cost-effective tool that is employed on your home’s existing windows and sliders.
