A Look Back at 2019’s Top HeadlinesDecember 30th, 2019 by Emmariah Holcomb
The New Year is almost here, but before we begin to focus on making 2020 successful, let’s take a look back at the articles on windowfilmmag.com that received the most views for 2019.
In January, both Iowa and Mississippi introduced legislation related to window film. While Iowa focused on altering the minimum standard of transparency for window tint in the state, Mississippi centered its efforts on requiring an inspection label to be shown on a vehicle’s window verifying that at least 28% of light can pass through it.
January was also met with clarification from KDX Optical film materials Co Ltd. after its parent company defaulted on a loan. The loan-payment incident left many in the industry curious about the company’s fate.
The year also began with the passing of an industry legend, Bill Burke. Friends and family recalled some of their memories of Burke as they prepared to say their final good-byes.
May began with a lawsuit from a South Korean window film distributor against Eastman Chemical Corp. According to the lawsuit, the distributor sought compensation for alleged defective window film.
In March both Eastman and 3M made the 2019 most ethical companies listing, compiled by the Ethisphere Institute. The companies have made the listing for the sixth consecutive time.
