This material is simply high gloss black vinyl with a very light coat of window frost spray paint. Im ordering other shades of black & charcoal. In an attempt to get the perfect balance of dark screen material and optimal picture brightness. The spray paint just needs a light one layer spray because to much smothers the reflective layer resulting in to dim of a picture. I really didn't think the spray paint would work but to my surprise it works very well. It eleminated hot spotting & the black wasn't washed out into a gray. Also the application process I believe is a lot easier then trying to wet apply a hug diffuser. One of the most exciting things about this process is the fact that you will be able to make screens up to 130 inches diagonal because they make these types of vinyl up to 60 inches wide & with the spray frost there is of course no limit for how much you can spray. I encourage anyone with an extra 8$ to go to home depot/lowes & buy a $4 piece of black gloss acrylic (which has the same effect as vinyl) & a can of frost spray paint. Then just lightly spray one coat over the black acrylic & let dry. In about 5 minutes u should have a good test sample. Make sure you dont spray to much or it will smother it out. Just a quick dash across the top & bottom should be good. As previously stated im still looking for different shades of black, charcoal, & dark gray vinyls to narrow down the search for the best balance of dark material with optimal brightness so if anyone else wants to help with the hunt jump on in. Black chrome vinyl will work as well but it tends to be more dark gray then black but that may be the way to go so we can get the brightness we are looking for. I really think the reason all the current market dark screens are dark gray is because black severly dims the white light spectrum of the picture. I do believe that that a charcoal or a dark gray will get us the best overall picture. I have found samples on ebay for just 2-10$ shipped. Just put in the color then vinyl & it will give hundreds of car vinyl results with many roll sizes. Also a fabric high gloss vinyl should also work allowing us to simply stretch it over a frame & then spray the diffusser on.A roll large enough for a 130 screen will only cost about 60-70 bucks. Something else kind of exciting is the ability for this screen to be applied to a roll down screen.
