Highlights
  • Available in multiple tint levels that block up to 93% of visible light, which means more privacy for you, your family and your valuables
  • 3M nano-carbon polyester provides a deep, rich and long-lasting shade that won’t turn purple
  • Offers an incredible look that rivals tinted factory glass
  • Metal-free design won’t interfere with electronics, GPS, satellite radio or mobile devices, including 5G

The 3M™ Automotive Window Film Color Stable Series incorporates a unique process for producing nano-carbon polyester. This revolutionary process allows for maximum heat rejection without a metal film layer, which can interfere with radio and/or satellite signals. It also gives the film a stylish look with outstanding color stability, so it never turns purple. Improving comfort, protecting vehicle interiors and blocking ultraviolet (UV) rays are hallmarks of 3M automotive window films.

Terms to know

  • TSER – Total Solar Energy Rejection

    The percentage of total solar energy rejected by filmed glass. The higher this value, the less solar heat is transmitted.

  • VLT – Visible Light Transmitted

    The percentage of visible light that passes directly through filmed glass: the higher the number, the lighter the film.

  • Ultraviolet Rejection

    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.

  • IRR – Infrared Rejection*

    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.

  • IRER – Infrared Energy Rejection**

    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.

  • Glare Reduction

    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.

Seller will also provide reapplication labor free of charge during the warranty period. This warranty is provided only to original consumer and is not transferable.

The legality of automotive window tinting varies from state to state or province to province. 3M shall not be responsible for or have any obligation to determine the legality of the consumer’s window film application, so consumers should familiarize themselves with the applicable legal standards in their state or province.

The warranty covers the application of 3M Automotive Window Films. Seller reserves the right to test any films under warranty services.

The warranty is VOID if the product has been subjected to abuse or improper care.
