Top 5 Benefits of Having Your Car Windows Tinted

Tinting car windows gives vehicles a unique, upgraded style and appearance. However, the benefits extend beyond the cosmetic changes. There are also practical benefits that enhance the functionality and comfort of your vehicle. At Interwest Automotive, we offer an extensive selection of 3M automotive window tint products that provide the following benefits.

1. Protection of Your Skin from Harmful UV Rays

Car window tint includes UV blocking technology that protects the skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Certain window tints can block up to 99.9% of the radiation that is closely connected with occurrences of skin cancer, such as UVA and UVB rays.

2. Upholstery Protection

Car tint protects upholstery against the damaging effects of UV rays. These rays can damage interior upholstery when exposed to the sun for extended period of time, such as when a vehicle is regularly parked outside. Car window film can protect upholstery from fading, sunspots, and cracking associated with exposure to solar rays.

3. Insulation from Solar Heat

3M automotive window tint provides exceptional rejection of solar heat, which means your vehicle interior will feel cooler. With less heat production within the vehicle, there is less need for the air conditioning system to work as hard. This can prevent wear and tear on your AC system and also increase gas mileage.

Tinted car windows can also prevent the formation of cracks in other surfaces inside your vehicle, such as your dashboard and steering wheel, preserving their appearance and keeping them cool and comfortable to the touch.

4. Shatter Resistance

Vehicle widow tint from 3M also provides resistance to window shattering due to smash-and-grab burglaries, vandalism, vehicle accidents, or flying debris during storms. Even if the window shatters from impact, the window film won’t allow the sharp pieces of broken glass to fly into the vehicle and cause potential injury to occupants.

5. Increased Security and Privacy

3M automotive window tint enhances the security and privacy of your vehicle. The tint prevents curious individuals or thieves from seeing into the vehicle. This deters vehicle break-ins and vehicle theft. It also gives you and your occupants the privacy you desire from pedestrians and other motorists.
