3M™ Prestige Series Window Film — A Better Way to See the World

Prestige Series Window Film is Clearly Superior


image001Your home is a major investment, both in time and money. But the sun can make your home uncomfortable and fade your furnishings. The sun will also increase your air conditioning bill. With Prestige Window Films by 3M, you enjoy the benefits of a world-class window film while leaving the beauty of your home virtually unchanged.




Thanks to 3M’s nano-technology laboratories, 3M created optically clear films. They deliver the highest performance possible without metals, which can corrode.

Until Prestige Series, most window films that rejected heat were dark, used metal and are highly reflective. The Prestige Series are the first films to offer a selection of films that perform to the industry’s highest standards.

The Prestige Series rejects up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light to help keep your home or business cool and lower energy bills.


On Angle — A New Measure of Performance

3M-On-AngleThe hottest time of the day is when the sun is high in the sky. 3M has created more stringent specifications for the performance of Prestige Series window films: Total Solar Energy Rejected —On Angle.

While other films may offer statistics showing similar solar energy rejection, these statistics are taken when the sun is perpendicular to the window. But this is during the cooler times of the day – sunrise and sunset. When the sun is working hardest, 3M’s Prestige Series is performing it’s best.
