The results of window tint extend beyond dark windows that mysteriously veil the driver while giving the illusion of increased performance and customization. Modern window tint is all about protection, both of vehicle and passengers. Solar energy and UV rays’ destructive impact on interior surfaces includes fading and cracking of upholstery and plastics. Window tint cuts these harmful rays, protecting interiors (and skin). Brightness and increased interior heat contribute to occupant discomfort and reduced air condition efficiency. Window tint cuts this annoying brightness and reduces interior heat, reducing billet part temperatures to hot instead of intolerably blistering hot.
3M Scotchshield Automotive Security Film, the window tint we chose for our 2013 Ford F-150 EcoBoost project, also provides protection of valuables because this film holds shattered glass together, increasing the entry time into a vehicle. Check out the video to see how it works. Armando from Campbell’s Window Film (campbellfilm.com) installed SAS 20 (20% of visible light passes through filmed glass) 3M Security Film on the front windows and SAS 5 (5-6% of visible light passes through filmed glass) on the back windows. These films reject 98-99% of ultraviolet light and reduce glare by 80% and 94%, respectively. Total solar energy rejected is about 40% - take that solar energy! In Happy Gilmore language, “Harness in the good energy, block out the bad. Harness. Energy. Block. Bad.” Anyway, 3M Scotchshield Automotive Security Film resulted in a literally cooler, safer, and more secure twin-turbo EcoBoost Ford F-150.
