By this logic, Kart, Ceramic 70 is a killer film with huge IR rejection rate. why go for Klar 70 then?

There is something fishy here - the Opulent India website has different numbers than what I see here. whats right and whats wrong. also ceramic 70 is not listed there at all. Opulent

any ideas?

Default comparison sheet

Bhpians, we used to maintain an excel on this thread on film comparisons, seems that it hasnt been updated for some time. I pulled out the edits done on Linea thread on the v0.2 that I had done sometime back. Grateful if anyone finds discrepancies/issues - they can update and reload.

I have updated it for M series from VKool and Huper Optik stuff from Opulent India website.

Cheers

Had called on this contact number for installing sunfilm on my Hyundai Accent. Charges are same as mentioned in one of the earlier posts.

Please be aware that you will have to provide a electric socket connection for heating purposes during installation of this film.

This is a problem for me as my apartment doesnt have a provision and so does my office parking area. I was looking for something on a immediate basis and couldn't make alternative arrangement and had to go for 3M.

I took the specs from the Huper Optik website. Klar should be clear (transparent film). The ceramic will be a shaded film. With my little knowledge of german Klar stands for clear.

Any way I plan to visit the place and get a demo and check the ratings with a meter as promised by the guy. I will try to post it after this.

Has anybody opted for Huper Optik film? Any reviews on the film will help. Are the quotes for the film Expensive?


thanks,
Kart
i got my HO fixed by Mr Rao too. The company that does the fixing is called padmininano. i have posted all details in the 'Front windscreen sunfilm' forum, regarding price etc.

The pricing reflects the same as well.
The best light color tint (to give the car a sophisticated look) with high heat rejection would be ceramic40 but they dont have that in stock. so you'll have to choose between ceramic50 (v. light) and ceramic30 (dark). but whatever you choose, the heat rejection will be superior to other manufacurers. its because, while other manufacturers claim high TSER's, they are unreliable and are usually tweaked by the manufacturers (search the forums abroad and people have done these tests themselves. infact, they find 3M to be highly unreliable and even laughable!). the only two films that are available in india which are absolutely reliable in terms of claimed TSER's are V-Kool and HO.
personally, i chose HO because it is a newer technology and also because with v-kool you get a greenish tinge to the glass, which i dislike whereas with HO you get this very cool, light, uniform tint of grey.

the reason why they dont fix ceramic70 and fix klar70 is because they dont have that at all (no such product). look at the HO global website and you'll see all the different ones available (i'm attaching the product summary from that website).

you could have gotten it fixed at their facility in banashankari.

What about this, Ceramic-70 is listed! Which global site are you referring to?
Product Summary

EDIT: Just realized, if you click on the table in above link, you get another table which is different (probably older version, which raftaar has attached)

Santosh, are the specs of this film making sense?? How come a film with 91% IRR and 99% UV rejection have tser < 50??


all this huber duber specs and now-you-it-exists and now-it-does-not makes me lose confidence in these films.

I am no expert, but from what I know, TSER calculation is not as straightforward as we had made it (i.e. weight IR, VLT and UV numbers according to certain accepted percentage of these 3 components in solar spectrum). It may serve as a good guideline, though.

I would expect real TSER to be lesser than this estimation because- 1. IR rejection is usually specified at a certain wavelength, where probably it is peak. Actual rejection may be lesser at other IR wavelengths. 2. Energy blocked by film is partially re-radiated or conducted into the cabin.

Given that, 47% makes sense to me. Also it changes from 41 to 47 for Klar-70 to Ceramic-70, as IR rejection changes from 72 to 91.

One more thing to mention, I had made an inquiry about Bangalore dealer on Opulent website and Mr. Rao had called me too. He told me that specifications are average, peak numbers would be actually better. (Didn't really understand what he meant.)

Regarding reliability of the brand, as many have mentioned earlier, HO is well known (and admired) brand internationally. If they have official presence in India, I would definitely trust them. (Problems in website maintenance aren't exactly uncommon, I wouldn't pay much attention to that part)

santosh, as always explained well. I was comparing with other films with similar ratings and wondering what is different? I guess I will go with Blue ribbon stuff this time for my new 4wd scorp (do check http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...awk-scorp.html (4wd Ute - mHawk Scorp)) - vKool 70 on front, now I am wondering about the sides - Gold dust has a hue not sure how it will come out? any recommendations..

Congrats for the beautiful new ride! Enjoy it.... safely.

I am not the right person to recommend you on films, you should ask somebody who has experienced at least a few different brands/models in past! Moreover, hue etc. is highly a matter of your (and your better half's) personal taste.

Default Huper Optik - no dealers in Bangalore?

I reached out to these Indian arm of Huper Optik and guess what, no dice!
Here is the exact reply.

"Thank you for your enquiry. Due to certain unavoidable circumstances, we have called off our relationship with Huperoptik and are no more dealing with their range of films. We express our inability to meet your current requirement with Huperoptik and once again we thank you for the interest shown with our company. "

What now? Any one else deal with ceramic sun film?

Mods, I felt this needs a separate thread as this is information that should appear in a search. Feel free to merge with any of the existing threads.
