Without proper protection, your vehicle can heat up inside fast during a sunny, hot summer day. Automotive tint is effective at solving this problem. It is designed to reduce glare from the sun and block a large percentage of the sun’s harmful UV rays from penetrating the vehicle. This tint allows you to see the scenery outside of your vehicle clearly and comfortably without trying to fight the heat and glare. Many of the 3M™ Automotive Window Films offered by a 3M window tint authorized dealer reduce heat generation by blocking as nearly 60% of solar energy from penetrating vehicle windows. Some also prevent as much as 95% to 99% of UV rays from entering, enhancing protection during the ride.
