The sun emits many kinds of invisible and visible light, including X-rays, ultraviolet, and infrared. It’s many of those light forms combined that can cause damage to your home and even your skin.

Before 3M film was invented, the options for limiting solar heat were fairly limited. One of the most common solutions for reflecting the light was a metallic spray, which was used to coat the glass and limit the transfer of heat. But these sprays were a challenge to install and would often streak, making them a less-than-ideal solution.
