Dear Valued Window Film Partner;
Performance Films just wrapped up a great year in 2012 thanks to your strong support and efforts. We are very excited about 2013 and beyond as we made significant progress in many areas of our business in 2012, including a smooth integration into Eastman Chemical Company.
Delivering products with consistent quality and reliable supply is essential to supporting the success of you, our business partners. As part of being a world class manufacturer, the ability to trace every roll of window film we produce back to the production date and machine will help us improve overall Quality Control and Assurance Management. To facilitate this, we will begin printing the product lot number on the silicone liner of our window films, beginning with LLumarÂ® automotive solar control window films, in 2013.
We see this as a very positive step in our pursuit of delivering the most consistent quality in the window film industry.Â We also see this as a tool to help our business partners better track the products they sell or install in their own markets.
Products: In 2013, LLumar brand automotive solar control window films will have the lot number printed adjacent to the LLumar logo on the silicone liner. Films that will NOT receive the lot number on the silicone liner in 2013 include; non-automotive window film, safety film, and paint protection film.
Timing: Printing lot numbers on the above products will begin during February 2013, and be a running change. You will see a mix of product with and without lot number printing for the first part of the 2013 season until all of the product made prior to this change has flowed through the supply chain.
If you have any questions about this change please do not hesitate to contact your sales representative. Thank you for your support of Performance Films and we look forward to a very exciting 2013.
Wing C. Kwang
Director, Business Operations Management
