After reading many Lowyat postings and forum. I had decided to give my input too for the benefit of others. *Sharing is caring*
Currently using Huper Optik for 7 years. After 7 years, no bubbling or dust or whatsover. I would say is good as new.
However, seems there's some mixed review on 3M or Raytech or last but not least Huper Optik. I am finalizing my shots to either 3M or Raytech or Huper Optik. Both 3M and Raytech has similar price range but Huper Optik is middle range.
3M package is
Windscreen front: Crystalline 70
4 side window: Nano 70s (3 mil safety)
Windscreen back: Crystalline 70
Film type: Multilayer optical film
Warranty: 5 years
General IRR： 97%
1. Multioptical film is higher range than ceramic
2. 3M installer is direct shop owner. So any complaint can settle easier rather than need to bring to HQ..bla bla bla
1. Not quite scratch resistant i.e. kids using toys/keys to hit my window tint
2. Windscreen smart tag issue.
Raytech package is
Windscreen front: Ultra 70
4 side window: Raytech RX (4 mil safety)
Windscreen back: Raytech RC
Film type: Ceramic
Warranty: 7 years
General IRR： 98%
1. Heat rejection seems to be better than 3M
2. Malaysia brand but manufactured in USA. So, perhaps you pay lower but get higher quality tint?
1. Shops are owned by parent company. Anything need to deal in process...bla bla bla
2. Price slightly higher than 3M even though they are Malaysian brand
Huper Optik package is
Windscreen front: Ceramic 70 / Sech 60
4 side window: Huper Shield 40 (6mil)
Windscreen back: Ceramic 40/Ceramic 50
Film type: Nano Ceramic
Warranty: 5 years
General IRR： 80%
1. Tried and tested for 7 years with no problem
2. Nano ceramic is higher spec than ceramic
3. Scratch resistant
1. Huper Optik installer is direct shop owner. So any complaint can settle easier rather than need to bring to HQ..bla bla bla
2. Lowest IR compared to 3M and Raytech
This is for my new ride which will arrive next week. Once I settle with this ride, I will be using the same package for my next new ride as I am waiting it to launch..hehe
So the GOLDEN question:
As both 3M and Raytech are of the same range while Huper Optik is RM 500 lesser than both. What do you guys think?
Actually, does having to pay extra RM500 to get the highest IRR i.e. 97%~98% is actually an overkill ? Or having 80% IRR is good enough already? Normally I just park at the office and work but twice in a month will have outstation trips i.e. 5 hours drive
Kindly post your comment. I hope it will help others in my same position too.
