LLumar window film is manufactured by Eastman Chemical Company, a global specialty chemicals company founded by Eastman Kodak in 1920. 

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. Known as the father of dyed PET (polyethylene terephthalate) — the polyester now used in most window films — Julius Hermes in 1956 was the historical cornerstone of the LLumar brand. 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 in 1977 and expanded into the global marketplace in 2001. LLumar's product portfolio includes a complete line of automotive window tint, commercial and residential architectural window films, safety/security, anti-graffiti and decorative films. Whether applied to automotive or architectural glass, high performance films enhance energy efficiency, comfort, aesthetics, safety and security.
