The best sellers of 3M automotive window films

3M FX Premium — great quality non-metallized window films

It is high quality carbon film for windows. This line of window film products doesn’t have any metal in it, so we won’t have the issue with cell phones and radio transmission. This type of film is dark and matte-finished, so it looks elegant and posh on windows.

It blocks about 40% of the infrared light (the kind that causes warmth) that enters through the windows. It is very effective in blocking heat, creating cool  space and helping to prevent fading to the interior of the car. Also, carbon film will not fade with time.

3M Crystalline — multi layer ceramic film with use of nanotechnology

This Series Automotive Film represents a technological breakthrough in automotive solar shading solutions. The film uses the same multi-layer nanotechnology as LCD TV panels to enhance image brightness.

The 3M Crystalline Film Series is a unique film, which consists of 224 nanolayers; they reflect or block solar radiation in a specific narrow spectrum, while allowing natural white light to pass through. The key difference between Crystalline window films is that the reflection of thermal energy occurs in the “near” infrared spectrum, which accounts for the most intense heat input.

The main benefits of 3M Crystalline window tint are: 

  • Color preservation
  • Does not block the phone or the radio
  • Sun control: blocks up to 97% of harmful UV rays and reflects solar energy to keep the comfort temperature inside the car
  • Decorative function: The car tint with this film looks amazing!

3M company — The inventor of the first adhesive tape

Did you know that Scotch tape was invented by Richard Drew, who worked as a laboratory technician for the 3M company in the 1920s? After 100 years of researching and improving the technologies the company offers  window tint among the other innovative products.
