3M Crystalline Automotive Window Film – Product Spotlight

3M is considered as one of the leading brands when it comes to automotive window film. And it’s for a very good reason – they are the ones who developed the technology, with the main purpose being to help the military’s helicopter blades from being ruined by sand, stone, and random debris.

Over time, 3M has adapted the technology for commercial use, particularly with regard to cars. These days, they have a number of different products based on the technology, and one of the more popular ones is the 3M Crystalline.

The 3M Crystalline has a number of benefits, and most of them are exactly what you would expect from a premium product:

UV Rejection Properties

3M claims that the Crystalline has a 99.9% UV rejection properties, which makes it on par with sunscreens that have an SPF (sun protection factor) of 1700+. This level of protection is enough to protect a car’s occupants, interior, and cargo from the cancer-causing effects of sunlight.

Glare Reduction

The Crystalline automotive window film also reduces glare significantly, greatly improving a driver’s visibility and making long drives during the day much safer. 3M’s estimate is that the film can reduce the glare by as much as 90%.


Blocks Infrared Rays

Another benefit of the film is that it blocks infrared rays, which greatly reduces the chances of the occupants and the car interior from being baked by sunlight. You no longer need to worry about plastics such as CDs, laptops, and car decors from melting if you leave the car parked in the open during sunny days.

Maintains the Car’s Original Look

The Crystalline automotive protective film offers light tint options, which will allow car owners to sacrifice a small, probably negligible bit of protection in exchange for maintaining the original appearance of their car.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Last but not the least, 3M is so confident with the product that they offer a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. You don’t have to worry about the film suddenly developing bubbles, peels, blisters, or discoloration. Of course, you do need to install the film properly first. So get the film installed by a professional installer like Master Shield Protection in order to take advantage of the warranty.
