Have you ever had your car broken into? According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) theft of automobiles happens every 33 seconds in the United States, which totals about $6.4 billion each year. 3M says it has made it harder for thieves to commit the crime by providing car owners with an extra layer of protection in their new 3M Scotchshield Automotive Security Films.
Keeping thieves from breaking in, the new shield keeps glass in place upon breakage. Extensive testing has been done on these new shields to ensure anti-breakage.
The 3M Scotchshield Automotive Security Films also provide excellent solar heat rejection as listed below:
Rejection of up to 46% of the total solar energy coming through windows, providing protection from the sun's heat and harmful ultraviolet rays
Increased privacy by shading windows from the sun and prying eyes
Non-metallized construction that won't interfere with mobile phone, GPS or satellite radio reception
Blockage of 99% of UV light and a total Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of up to 1000
Significant glare reduction from blinding sunlight, allowing drivers to see better and concentrate more on the road
A variety of tint levels to meet drivers' needs (from 5% to clear), allowing 5% to 50% of the visible light into vehicles
A limited lifetime warranty should they need replacing from bubbling, peeling, or blistering
