When it comes to car window tinting, 3M is the one to get. 3M window tinting has various benefits beyond cosmetics and comfort, including added protection from high-temperature extremes, corrosion, weather conditions and prying eyes.
Window tinting is a process of placing a film onto glass to cut out up to 99% of harmful UV rays to prevent skin damage and ageing, lowering heating and air conditioning (and your gas bill) by reducing the load on the car’s cooling system. That creates an added sense of privacy for drivers and passengers in vehicles and adds style to your car’s aesthetic.
UV rays are the leading cause of skin ageing and also lead to cancer. 3M window film is designed, so it blocks 97% of UV rays. 3M window tinting will protect your car’s interior from harmful UV rays, keeping your dashboard, upholstery, steering wheel and carpets looking newer longer
What Is 3M Window Tinting?
3M stands for 3M Electrically Conductive Window Film 3140-69. 3M window film is currently 3M’s most popular product, and it has been installed in more than four million vehicles. 3M window film also comes with a 3-year limited warranty. 3M products are made of one-layer or multi-layer construction for privacy, heat reduction, and solar control.
The dark appearance of 3M window tinting makes the interior of the car much cooler. 3M window film also blocks 99% of ultraviolet (UV) rays which cause fade and discoloration. 3M window tinting is a great way to increase the resale value of a vehicle. By using window tint on your car, you can help minimize the harmful effects of UV exposure and protect those inside from extreme temperatures (hot and cold).
Car windows can also contribute to interior temperature extremes in an automobile. The glass is typically made up of two panes, separated by a space that can allow hot or cold air to transfer. As the temperature outside increases, windows are known to create magnifying solar rays. If your car is parked with direct sunlight on it for an extended period of time, you could be left with extremely high interior temperatures.
Benefits of 3M Window Tinting
If you’ve driven home while facing the sun at sunset or during the sunrise in the morning, you know how powerful the sun’s glare can be. But, driving with the glare of the sun in your eyes is more than an annoyance that causes you to squint more than usual. It’s a major safety hazard.
When the sun is in your eyes, not only does the glare limit your vision ( which is obviously vitally important when driving), but it also takes your attention away from the road and your surroundings to focus on the light beaming into your eyes. A window tint reduces glare, making it easier for you to see the road and get to your destination safely.
Have you ever been parked on the side of a busy street and felt the eyes of passing pedestrians staring into your car as they walk by? It can feel uncomfortable, even if you know it’s probably harmless wandering eyes. When you tint your windows, you’ll never need to worry about that again.
Even when you’re not in your car, and you leave it parked and unattended, tinted windows are a deterrent for break-ins because criminals can’t peer into your vehicle to see if there is anything worth their effort to try to steal.
Safety Last but not least is the increased safety that window tinting provides. You can get seriously injured by window glass that shatters into shards and sprays into your vehicle in car accidents. Fortunately, the film from a window tint helps to hold the glass together in the event of a collision, reducing your risk of injury.
