The percentage of total solar energy rejected by filmed glass. The higher this value, the less solar heat is transmitted.
The percentage of visible light that passes directly through filmed glass: the higher the number, the lighter the film.
The percentage of ultraviolet (UV) light that is rejected by the filmed glass. UV light contributes to the fading and deterioration of fabrics and leather.
The percentage of solar infrared energy rejection over the wavelength range from 900-1,000 nm. Infrared rays are primarily responsible for the heat you feel when driving.
The percent of solar infrared energy rejection over the wavelength range from 780–2,500 nm. IRER takes into account the transmitted and absorbed IR energy that will be reradiated into a car.
The percentage by which visible light is reduced by the addition of film. Data shown is the estimated performance of film applied to ¼” (6mm) thick, 73% VLT automotive green glass. Data is for reference only.
NOTE: Auto tint laws vary by state or province. Please check your local laws or ask your dealer installer for films that meet your local tint laws.
Limited Lifetime Warranty: Sold and installed by professional 3M Authorized Dealer Installers and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
Data should be used as a reference tool for net VLT on ¼” (6mm) thick, automotive green glass of 73% VLT, and testing is in accordance to ANSI/NFRC 200 Procedure.
*IRR - Percent of solar infrared energy in the 900 – 1,000 nm wavelength range that is rejected by the film. Measurement is made of film with liner alone (i.e. no glass).
**IRER – Percent of solar infrared energy that is rejected over the wavelength range from 780 – 2,500 nm. IRER takes into account the transmitted and absorbed IR energy that will be reradiated into a car. Data shown is for the performance of film applied to glass.
