LLumar window film is manufactured by Eastman Chemical Company, a global specialty chemicals company founded by George Eastman of Eastman Kodak in 1920. Eastman produces a broad range of advanced materials and specialty chemicals that are found in thousands of household and industrial products that people use every day.
Eastman has one of the largest and most integrated window and performance-coated film manufacturing sites in the world, serving customers in nearly 100 countries around the world. The entrepreneurial initiative of Julius Hermes in 1956 was the historical cornerstone of the LLumar brand. Known as the father of dyed PET (polyethylene terephthalate) — the polyester now used in most window films — he was the right person, with the right product at the right time that moved the industry forward into the thriving business it is today.
The LLumar brand was established in the United States in1977 and expanded into the global marketplace in 2001. Our product portfolio includes a complete line of automotive window tint; commercial and residential architectural window films, safety/security, anti-graffiti, and decorative films. Every place glass is used represents an opportunity for enhancement with LLumar window films. Whether applied to automotive or architectural glass, high performance films enhance energy efficiency, comfort, aesthetics, safety, and security.
The LLumar commitment to quality is what drives us every single day. It’s also something you can count on and actually see in every product we make
At Eastman, we recognize that the world’s resources are finite and consumer needs are not. It is our goal to make a positive difference in the world by bringing products to market that improve lives, our communities, and our environment. Sustainability isn’t something we take lightly. It’s an essential component of our business.
It means safely manufacturing our products in a way that minimizes our use of energy and natural resources. For example, our architectural film becomes carbon neutral in less than two months after installation — meaning the fuel used in its manufacture neither contributed to nor reduced the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. However — and this is huge—over the service life of the product, we’re actually providing 14 plus years of greenhouse gas reductions.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized Eastman Chemical Company as a 2013 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for strategically managing and improving energy efficiency. We are proud of the progress but we recognize we have more to do.
Eastman is an active participant in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Save Energy Now LEADER program and is also an EPA/DOE ENERGY STAR® Partner, promoting the benefits of ENERGY STAR and related tools.
Through this partnership, Eastman has improved its energy performance, saved money and helped to protect the environment for future generations. Eastman is the only chemical company to have the distinction of being named ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year more than once – having won in 2012 and 2013.
At Eastman, sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement. Today. Tomorrow. And for generations to come.
