Smart Windows

Precision Coating Window Films

Carestream expertly coats window films that deliver privacy, decoration, and energy and light management attributes for architectural windows, smart windows, sunroofs, rearview mirrors and beyond. We work with our substrate and chemical supplier partners to enhance customer-provided formulations with nanoparticles or other additives, which are evenly dispersed into the solution prior to coating.

Our clean room manufacturing practices and air filtration system minimize defects down to the micron level to meet demanding optical requirements. On-line laser and camera inspection systems help us monitor coating quality and quickly react to waste issues. In addition, our production coaters have dual coating stations that can either coat a second layer on the same side of the film, or apply a different solution on the back of the film. UV curing and lamination are also available – perfect for when an adhesive layer needs to be applied to the backside of the film.
