Solamatrix Introduces New Film and Online Marketing Tool
Two new developments are now available from St. Petersburg, Fla.-based Solamatrix: a new film and a new online program.

The charcoal automotive window film series is the latest addition to the Sun-Gard Automotive Window Film line and features 1.5 mil premium-grade film in both non-reflective and high-performance options. HP Charcoal is available in five shades (4, 15, 22, 32, and 38 percent visible light transmission (VLT)). NR Charcoal is also available in five shades (5, 20, 35, 55, and 70 percent VLT).

In addition to the new automotive window film series Solamatrix has announced its Sun-Gard WebNet online dealer program, which is designed to allow dealers to process business through their own WebNet website. Dealers will have their own website with a unique URL that they can utilize to promote their business in their local market. The website manages referrals, requests for quotes, recent traffic to the site, follow up with leads and submitted questions through a customized tracking system. As part of the program, all participants receive free hosting and a free web address (URL).

GEOSHIELD’s Film Addition
SuperAlloy architectural film is the most recent development from GEOSHIELD based in Baton Rouge, La. The company says the film uses advanced metallurgy to obtain high thermal properties, corrosion resistance and a clean look. The three-ply, 1.5-mil film is available in both 15 and 25 percent visible light transmission.

SuperAlloy is available in a dry adhesive that the company says allows for easy installation and adhesion to the glass. The film is made of sputtered nichrome, an additional layer of aluminum to increase solar energy rejection and a color-stable dyed film that reduces reflectivity.

Cutting Up
Roland has introduced what it says is its largest and most powerful vinyl cutter yet. The GX-640 is suited for restyling applications and is fully integrated with the company’s VersaWorks RIP software. It features advanced DC servo motor technology and ten pinch-roll slots to accommodate up to six added pinch-roll assemblies.

It also comes with the latest version of the companies design software, CutStudio.

Can You Hear Me Now?
3M’s FX Premium automotive window film features a scratch-resistant coating and is manufactured without the use of metals, which can help eliminate interference with cell phones or GPS devices.

The film also protects people from 99 percent of harmful UV rays and is available in 5, 15, 25, 30, 35, and 55 percent VLT.
