Gotta fo some cirrecting here.
Silver Fire is more Translucent than stated. The whole premise behind Silver Fire is based upon it's having both a reflective surface that is as thin as possible as well as a under lying mildly reflective & opaque layer that stops further absorption and conserves a percentage of the brighter elements if the image.
A Gray sustrate will most definitely reduce overall gain, as well as affect the White levels, working toward negating the very advantages of the SF application taken as a whole.
There is a reason SF is designed as it is...and that means doing a build as specified. Every variable of SF is based around a balance between absobtion and reflection.
So...the correct response to Roku22 is:
Yes....you'd have to Prime a Gray surface before applying SF if you are looking to reap full advantage. Better to just start out with a White Screen and paint SF directly onto it from the start. You saw the results I achieved on the thread Ftoast linked to (btw..thanks) so why do it any other way?
BTW...I am not aware of any Tab Tensioned screens that cone with High Contrast Gray surfaces. All are Matte White.
