Five Reasons to Install 3M™ Auto Tint on your Hot Car
While it’s true that the Texas sun can get brutal during the summer months, 3M™ Auto Tint is designed to lower the heat and improve the comfort of your hot car. Here are the top five reasons to consider installing 3M window film on your vehicle.
Reason No. 1: Lower Heat with 3M Auto Tint
3M auto tint is scientifically proven to reduce heat in your hot car.
From June through August, the daily high temperature in Austin can range anywhere from 89 degrees to 94 degrees. Researchers found that within 1 hour, the internal temperature of a car parked in the sun can reach up to 116 degrees within one hour. The dashboard gets even hotter, reaching 157 degrees.
3M™ Automotive Window Film, Crystalline Series has proven to reject up to 64 percent of the total solar energy and up to 99 percent of heat-causing infrared rays entering your vehicle when parked in the sun. The multilayer optical film incorporates 200 layers of nano-technology film that are constructed to deflect these harmful rays. The film is even available as a clear film.
This is a difference that you’ll be able to feel.
Reason No. 2: Reduce Glare with 3M Auto Tint
3M auto tint helps reduce glare, which can improve your safety while driving.
Glare while driving can put drivers at serious risk. Glare happens just after sunrise and before sunset, when the sun is closer to the horizon and able to shine directly into a driver’s eyes. It can blind a driver who is trying to navigate traffic. But 3M car window tinting is designed to help reduce glare. It’s like wearing sunglasses, only putting shades on the windows of your car. The darker the tint, the more glare reduction.
3M™ Automotive Window Film, Crystalline Series’ limo tint, CR 20, can reduce glare by up to 77 percent. Meanwhile, 3M’s Ceramic IR series’ limo tint IR 5 can reduce glare by up to 93 percent. Those are some serious shades!
Reason No. 3: Prevent UV Rays with 3M Auto Tint
3M auto tint can help protect you, your passengers and your vehicle’s interior from harmful UV rays.
UV rays are a leading cause of skin cancer. The sun’s ultraviolet radiation (or UV rays) are made up of two types – Ultraviolet A (UVA) which has a longer wavelength and is associated with skin aging and Ultraviolet B (UVB) which has a shorter wavelength and is associated with burning. Unprotected exposure to these UV rays can lead to genetic defects, or mutations that later can lead to skin cancer and premature aging, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Meanwhile, UV rays are also one of the leading sources of fading furniture. For a car’s interior, UV rays can wreak havoc on dash boards, seats and other interior furnishings.
The good news is that all of 3M auto tints can block up to 99.9 percent of damaging UV Rays. This is like adding sunscreen over your entire vehicle – shielding it and you from the sun’s damage.
Reason No. 4 Offer Privacy & Safety with 3M Auto Tint
3M auto tint can improve your privacy and safety while in your vehicle.
Let’s face it, the darker the limo tint, the less that drivers or other people outside of your vehicle are going to see you. 3M auto tint comes in a variety of tint levels to help give you privacy.
Meanwhile, 3M™ Scotchshield™ Automotive Window Film is a special series of film designed to keep you, your passengers and your belongings safe in your car. The thick film is designed to hold glass fragments in place after glass is shattered. This can assist during both unwanted break-ins and vehicle crashes. The film also provides the same solar protection against heat, UV rays and glare that other 3M auto tints offer.
By adding a layer of protection to the windows of your car, you know you can rest assured you have both privacy and security.
Reason No. 5: 3M Auto Tint is Protected with a Warranty
When you work with a reputable 3M™ Authorized Dealer like Sunshades Tint & Sound, your 3M auto tint is backed by a manufacturer warranty for the time that you own the car.
3M auto tint is designed not to turn purple, bubble, crack or raise. In fact, 3M warranties each install when it has been installed by a company like Sunshades Tint & Sound.
