    My autospa which is doing all my wrapping/ceramic/tinting work is recommending Flexfilm® | Window Film Distributor , which is their preferred ceramic tint.

    Has anyone heard of this product? I can't find it searching here which has me nervous about using it?

    I would stay away from it. It's not the greatest film... Do a search and you will find a bunch of "flexfilm failures". Also some people notice a haze from the Flexfilm ceramic.

    If that's the only film they have, RUN.

    I've been researching it and I can't find a lot of search results for flexfilm failures. Spec wise it looks good and tintworld is pushing it as the best IR solution. Do you have any links?

    Do a search on tintdude from actual people who tint for a living.

    Appreciate it. I'm finding it difficult to find anything that's high IR that people are is good and local tinters use.

    Truthfully, when it comes down to it, I would look at price and the quality differences. You will find most tints are pretty close in stats. It does not make a lot of sense to pay more for roughly 1-5% difference in heat rejection in most cases. There is actually only 3 major tint manufactures. Most brands are just relabeled from those.

    I was thinking XPEL XR Prime Plus but I can't find anyone who carries it. Llumar Formula One Pinnacle is the best thing I can find here in San Diego and the heat rejection is a little low for what I want.

    I only found one shop in my town with Xpel Prime XR Plus, everyone else had XR. Can't speak to the quality, just had it installed 2 hour ago. 35% all around.
