Hey, my name is Ralph and I'm with Flexfilm. I want to dispel a rumor that's going around in the industry. I've heard a lot of sales reps make the claim that a lot of brands of window film that advertise that they have ceramic or IR performance window tint, imply that their film is going to last. If you put the window tint on today, 10 years later it's going to be the same performance as it was the day you put it on. Well, that is true. There are some films that last forever and some films that could lose performance over time. Every product that we sell at Flexfilm does not lose performance over time. That is a rumor. If someone tells you that, there's a reason for that.
There are chemical technologies that can be found in window films. There's similar chemical technologies that are also found in sunscreen that do block out solar energy. Over time, when they're exposed to the sun, they diminish and go away.
If you are using a nano-particle technology with elements off the periodic table, like Tungsten, Antimony Tin Oxide, and other elements, that can be used for ceramic, these elements don't fade away or diminish in the presence of the sun. Carbon doesn't disappear just because the sun hits it. ATO or Tungsten, don't disappear just because the sun hits it. They're forever. They stay there. They don't go away and they don't lose performance over time. All of our window films are made with nano-particle technology and all the particles that you're going to find in our films are off of the periodic table. They don't go anywhere. Just wanna clear that up. Thank you.
