3M Color Stable Tint for Windows

This tint comes in various tint levels that block up to 93% of visible light from penetrating. It provides exceptional color stability with years of performance.

Superb color stability is best achieved by absorbing a greater quantity of infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) rays. What is important to know is that standard dyed window tint consists of a layer of dye applied to a polyester sheet. This combination doesn’t tend to last.

Color stable film is made through an extrusion process with raw materials that undergo melting and stretching in a horizontal and vertical directions. This goes beyond the standard process of simply applying the tint to a sheet. This process produces a stronger base material, giving it the ability to absorb rays without causing damage to the film.

After the film is produced, UV blockers are added to it which block damaging UV rays. The tint color absorbs the sun’s energy onto the glass directly instead of onto the film, which is installed on the interior of the glass. This minimizes the penetration of damaging rays through the window film and prolongs the service life of the 3M color stable tint.

With darker color stable films come increased tint levels, which results is better performance.
