  • Beat the Heat Without Breaking the Law: Auto Tint Laws

     In Automotive

    Summer may be coming to an end, but the temperatures are still hot! While tinting your windows may sound like a cool idea, there is a dark side to trying to beat the heat. Before tinting your windows, be sure to check the laws in your state – you don’t want to face fines.

    Benefits of Auto Window Film

    There are many reasons to apply window film to your car. Window tint not only protects your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but it also prevents the dangerous glare that can make it difficult to see the road. Window Film adds a layer of protection and privacy to your vehicle. Thanks to the 3M™ Automotive Window Film Crystalline Series, you can drive worry-free knowing that you and your car are protected.

    In fact, no other company has more experience with window film than 3M, which received the first patent for window film in 1966. Backed by science, technology and innovation, 3M™ Window Film is tested to extreme measures to surpass industry standards.

    The 3M™ Automotive Window Film Crystalline Series rejects up to 60 percent of solar energy and up to 97 percent of heat-producing infrared rays, making it the superior choice for comfort. Designed to increase privacy, this non-metalized window film lets you stay connected with mobile devices, GPS or satellite radio reception without interference. All 3M™ Automotive Window Films are backed by one of the most comprehensive warranties you can get. When sold and installed by professional 3M™ Authorized Dealer installers, these window films are durable and virtually maintenance free.

    Why Use a Professional Installer?

    Using a credible 3M™ Certified Installer is a guarantee that your windows won’t violate the laws. With such a wide variety of shades, it can be difficult to know which films comply with your state laws. Dealers identified as Crystalline Certified not only carry a full line of 3M™ Automotive Window Films, but they have also been trained and certified to install the window film.
