The Oven Effect

We all know the dangers of leaving anything living inside of our vehicles in any level of heat. In the solar heat of summer, even plants can wither quickly. And if it’s hot enough outside, parking in the shade doesn’t always seem to reduce the heat inside your ride much.

That’s because you’re at the mercy of a miniature greenhouse effect. After the solar heat enters your windshield, the heat is absorbed into the objects that make up your car’s interior like your steering wheel and seats. That heat gets released back into the air with conduction and convection, turning your car into an oven-like heat pocket.

And that heat can rise rapidly when exposed to full solar shortwave radiation. According to experts, a generic gray car interior will heat a car by about 19 degrees in 10 minutes, 29 degrees in 20 minutes, and over the course of hours, as much as 50-55 degrees.

Keeping Your Cool

The best way to keep your car cooler on even the hottest summer days is ceramic automotive window tinting. Using nano-ceramic technology, this film rejects as much as 66% of the sun’s total solar energy and 95% of solar infrared heat, making for a cooler, more comfortable ride.

3M film is sold and installed only by authorized 3M installers, so you know you’re getting the best quality installation every time.

These are just a few more reasons to invest in ceramic auto window tinting services.

Low Visible Light Reflectivity Value

The visible light reflectivity value refers to how much light a color reflects or absorbs. It varies between 0% to 100%. The low value means that the window tint will protect you from harmful sun rays while driving.

A Clear View

Even with the window tints on, your driving view will not be obstructed. You will enjoy a clear view, just like one in a normal car window. So, you can drive safely to your destination.

No Mirror Effect

No mirror effect means you will get a clear view of the outside while driving, and your field of sight will not be obstructed, preventing accidents.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

With the car window tint, you get a limited lifetime warranty. So, if there are any issues with your window tint, you can get it checked by the window tint professionals at no cost.

Reduced Interior Damage and Fading

Since the damaging effects of the sun will be blocked out, your car’s interior would stay safe from fading and damage. This will preserve the aesthetics of your car while prolonging the life of its interior.

Protection From Heat

Your car’s interior will remain relatively cooler, even if you park it under the sun. This is primarily because the window tint will keep out most of the infra-red waves. Furthermore, Since the car will remain cool, you do not have to crank up the AC, reducing your overall fuel consumption.

Adds Privacy

Installing window tints will darken your car’s window, and no one from the outside will be able to peek inside, adding to your privacy.

Provides Safety

In case of an accident, the ceramic window tint will keep the broken pieces of glass intact and securely in place. This can help save the passengers from any fatal glass injuries.

Highly Durable

Ceramic window tints are highly durable. The color will not fade away soon, and its overall look will be preserved for a long time. In fact, a good-quality window tint can comfortably last for 8 to 10 years.

Reduced Glare, Even Against the Winter Snow

There’s no denying how annoying the sun's glare can be while driving. Additionally, it can also reduce your visibility which can cause potential accidents. Since the window tint limits the sunlight entering your car, it can reduce the glare to a great extent. What’s more, window tints are effective in blocking harsh light and keeping away the glare even during the snowfall season.
