UV protection while reducing any light and heat that enters your exotic | sports | everyday vehicle in Fremont, CA
Why we choose to offer 3M window tint over XPEL | Suntek | etc.?
Carzwerk is proud to offer 3M Window Tint Service by Automall Tint Specialist AMTS to your vehicle.
Tint is a very subjective area. It is somewhat similar to choosing the lenses in your eye glasses. You could go with photochromic lenses and they certainly offer convenience, but are they the best for your style? XPEL and Suntek have great products in general, but that doesn’t mean that all their products are great. The same way, you would buy a Samsung phone, but will have second thoughts on that Samsung refrigerator.
3M has a long history of building great quality products. You see them in a lot of areas and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that their tint film competes with the names like XPEL and Suntek. Their high-quality window film is designed to provide several benefits when applied to your vehicle’s windows or home or office windows. One thing to keep in mind that 3M’s window tint is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation and it’s also the Official Window Film of NASCAR
We’re going to make another analogy to the eye care industry: you could get an inexpensive pair of frames with some Nikon lenses. The same would apply for window tint and 3M offers multiple types of film for different budgets and different purposes.
Type of 3M Window Tint We Offer
3M Crystalline Window Tint
Reject heat, not looks. 3M™ Automotive Window Film Crystalline Series is a non-metallized film that performs better than other dark films, allowing you to reject heat so you need less air conditioning.
3M Ceramic IR Window Tint
Ride in comfort and style. 3M™ Automotive Window Film Ceramic IR Series is a ceramic tint that offers great infrared rejection for optimal comfort and is available in an attractive neutral color.
Whether it's crystalline or ceramic tint here are some of the key benefits of 3M Tint:
One of the primary benefits of Tint is its exceptional heat rejection properties. It can block a significant portion of solar heat, helping to keep the interior of your vehicle or building cooler. This can reduce the need for excessive air conditioning, leading to energy savings.
Tint can block up to 99.9% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays can cause damage to your skin, as well as fade and deteriorate the interior of your car or home. Tint protects yourself and your belongings from UV radiation.
Tint can significantly reduce glare from the sun, headlights and other bright light sources. This improves visibility and can make driving more comfortable, especially during sunny days or nighttime driving.
Depending on the darkness of the tint you choose, 3M Tint can enhance privacy by making it more difficult for outsiders to see inside your vehicle or building. This added privacy can be valuable for personal comfort and security.
Tint offers a sleek and high-end appearance. It can enhance the overall aesthetics of your vehicle or building while also providing functional benefits.
By blocking UV rays and a significant amount of solar heat, Tint helps prevent the fading of interior furnishings, upholstery, and carpets, prolonging their lifespan and preserving their appearance.
Safety and Security
While not as robust as some security films designed specifically for this purpose, Tint can add an extra layer of protection to your windows. It can help hold shattered glass together in the event of an accident or break-in, reducing the risk of injury and making it more difficult for intruders to enter.
3M typically offers a comprehensive warranty on their Tint products, providing peace of mind and ensuring the quality and longevity of the film.
It’s important to note that the specific benefits you experience may vary depending on the darkness of the tint, the quality of the installation and the type of windows you have. It’s advisable to consult with a professional installer to determine the best tint for your needs and to ensure proper installation.

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.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends this product as an effective UV protectant.
- 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.
