Eastman Performance Films Invests in 3D Scanning Technology

Written by

On May 16, Eastman Performance Films, LLC announced its investment in 3D scanning technology for paint protection film patterns, claiming this is a leading edge, next-generation enhancement that will transform Eastman’s pattern development process by increasing speed and accuracy.

Eastman predicts that deployment of this 3D technology will elevate its current database of paint protection film patterns and accelerate the rate of new model-and-trim additions to the database with improved precision.


The 3D scanning technology utilizes lasers to capture any vehicle’s shape as flexible data that can quickly be converted into a 2D template. Describing the advantages of the new technology’s integration into pattern-making, Eastman’s New Product Development and Technology Service Manager Yancy Farrow explains, “The equipment is accurate within seven to eight microns in three-dimensional space. To put that into perspective, the average diameter of a human hair is 75 microns. This level of precision helps ensure the patterns we design, across the globe, are among the best fitting patterns from any manufacturer or marketer of paint protection film.”


On September 4-6, 2019, Eastman Performance Films will be returning to the International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off ™ at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis as a Diamond Plus Sponsor.
