Clarifying & Comparing Window Film Solutions: Eastman Vs. 3M Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota

Advanced Film Solutions has become the largest volume commercial and residential window film installation company in the Tampa Bay, Sarasota and Orlando area.

We have developed the largest portfolio of window film coatings so we can match our clients requirements with the perfect film.

Our team of experts has more experience in window film technology and precision installations than any other local contractor. This level of supreme customer service has earned us the Super Service Award from Angie’s List for 8 consecutive years and an A Plus rating with the Better Business Bureau.

We understand that most of our potential clients know very little about window film. They may have a perception of which films are the “best.”

Advanced Film Solutions is unique.

We worked directly at 3M for 33 years. Our founder was the National Sales Manager of 3M Window Film.


Since leaving 3M in 2007 our dealership has represented the best window film brands by performance and documented NFRC characteristics.

Our preferred manufacturers actually make the films we install. This is not the case for our 3M competition.

Our family owned business does not resell through Home Depot, Window Genie, window film depots or an assortment of AC companies and agents.

Eastman Chemical is the world’s largest manufacturer of window film. Their Vista, EnerLogic, Huper Optik, LLumar and SunTek films comprise the Lion’s Share of the window film industry.


Saint Gobain is the manufacturer of SolarGard and Armorcoat.

Madico is the manufacturer for their Sunscape line and security films.

Hanita is the Israeli company that manufactures Solar and Safety Zone films. their exterior coatings are the industry trend setter.

Many of these brand names are probably not top of mind for the average consumer albeit Eastman Chemicals was founded by George Eastman of Eastman Kodak renown.

When our 3M window film agent competitors make claims about “their films, their history, their adhesives and their technology and innovation” are these claims truly valid when they don’t make a stitch of the film in their 3M labeled box?


Car tinting films like FX, FX ST and Black Chrome?

Affinity solar or solar security?

Exterior films and anti graffiti?

8ML and Thicker clear security film?

“Their 3M Ceramic Film?”

So we invite you to call Home Depot 3M or any of their agents.

Check out “their Low e Film, their bronze and silver films, their blackout and white out films, their silver security film, etc.”

Then call us toll 877-575-3456
