3M Sun Control Films are designed to reduce the amount of solar heat transmission through window glass by increasing the solar reflection (not necessarily visible reflection) and solar absorption through the glass.
Most dyed films work through an increase in absorption. The color absorbs the solar energy at the glass, which ultimately reduces the direct transmissions of color into the room.
However, if you want to reduce heat then reflective films are the way to go. Reflective films are films that have been precision coated with all kinds of metal. These films are designed to increase the solar energy reflection of the glass. 3M offers a range of reflective films to fit your needs.
All 3M Sun Control films are made to be transparent and clear. The ultraviolet protection is built into the adhesive system to provide longevity to the film. It also provides you UV protection in your home, meaning the reduction of any skin issues.
3M window films are used with our abrasion-resistant coating that provides a long-term duration and keeps a clean, maintained window appearance.
