Top 5 Reasons to Install 3M Auto Tint

 In Automotive

In Florida, there is a dreaded woosh of heat when you first open the doors of your hot car after it has been parked in the sun, but 3M™ auto tint can help give you some relief. Here are the top five reasons to consider installing the 3M™ Automotive Window Film on your car today.

Reason No. 1: Auto Tint will Lower Heat in Your Hot Car

Summer is approaching, and this means hot temperatures and increased sun exposure, but with auto tint, you can help reduce some of that heat entering your car.

Here in Ocala, the hottest months of the year stretch from May to October, a long five months in the sun. Research shows the temperature in cars parked in the sun for an hour raise to 116 degrees while cars parked in the shade reach up to 100 degrees.

3M™ Automotive Window Film, Crystalline Series can reject 64% of total solar energy and 99% of heat-producing infrared rays. 3M’s car auto tint has been proven to make temperatures in cars with the air conditioning on and in the hot sun an estimated 26.5 degrees cooler than cars without 3M tinting. In contrast, cars without the air conditioning on in the hot sun and without car window film are 47 degrees hotter than a car with window film and no air conditioner.

3M’s Crystalline Series films are constructed with 200 layers of nano-technology film, each one positioned to help deflect heat. Manufactured by one of the world’s global leaders in adhesive technology, 3M’s Crystalline Series of auto tint rejects more heat than many dark films. Even it’s clear option can reject up to 95% of the sun’s heat-producing infrared rays.

Vehicles with Crystalline Series auto tint offer lower heat levels that you can feel.

Reason No. 2: Reduce Glare with Auto Tint

Car auto tint can help improve vision on the roads that may be impaired by glare. Glare occurs when the sunlight is directly projected onto the retina, which makes it hard to notice your surroundings. Oftentimes, the highest risk for experiencing glare is right after sunrise or right before sunset, when the sun is perpendicular to the horizon.

Reduced visibility, delayed reaction times, and misjudgment of distances are only some of the negative consequences that glare can cause.

The darker the car window tinting, the more protection against glare. In fact, 3M™ Automotive Window Film Crystalline 20 can reduce up to 77% of glare. This is so that you can stay more focused on the road.

Reason No. 3: Block UV Rays with Auto Tint

With auto tint on your vehicle, you are adding a layer of protection against health complications from the sun, such as skin cancer.

According to the Skin Care Foundation, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, with 90% of nonmelanoma skin cancer cases stemming directly from UV ray exposure. People often forget that we aren’t just exposed outside, but that we are also affected inside. The sun affects our day-to-day living spaces as well when the sunlight streams in through our car windows.

Without protective window tint, about 30% of UV rays can pass through cars – which is the equivalent of sitting outside for about an hour.

The 3M™ Automotive Window Film, Crystalline Series blocks 99.9% of UV rays across all of their visible light transmittance groups. Adding a protective window tint on a car is the first prevention method that the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends, especially if you spend a lot of time in your car next to the vehicle’s windows.

Reason No. 4: Privacy and Security Ensured With Auto Tint

3M auto tint can protect people and property within a vehicle and add a layer of security and privacy.

3M™ Automotive Window Film, Scotchshield Security Series offers both a layer of protection against unwanted intruders and against the unwanted effects of the sun. The film works by firmly holding broken window fragments together after impact – from either an intruder or during an accident. The film prevents shards of glass from flying everywhere and hurting people and damaging property.

For car owners who may also value their car’s privacy, the 3M™ Scotchshield Security Series is available in different limo tint levels, in which up to 95% of visible light is blocked from the sun.

The car tinting also offers sun control properties and can reject up to 99 percent of UV rays from damaging your skin or dash and seats, 94 percent of glare reduction and up to 43 percent of total solar energy.

Reason No. 5: 3M Auto Tint Backed by a Strong Warranty

When you work with a 3M™ Authorized Window Film dealer like IES Window Films to install auto tint on your vehicle, your car window tinting is covered by a manufacturer warranty for the remaining time you own your car.

The warranty card states that the automotive window tint will maintain solar reflective properties, adhesion without breaking, and the film’s tint level without turning purple. If there is a defect, the seller will replace the defective part without charging for the labor. However, if they detect any abuse or improper care, then they will not be able to replace it.

This is a guarantee from one of the world’s most trusted brands.
