A Few Reasons to Consider Automotive Tint

When deciding if you should tint your vehicle, here are some helpful facts to let you know about. All of our tint blocks 99% of UV rays, the UV rays that fade the interior of your car and sometimes crack your dash. The tint helps keep your car cool during the summer and helps lock in the heat during the winter. Automotive tint also cuts down on the glare coming in your vehicle. All of our tint has a lifetime warranty against fading, bubbling, and peeling.

A few reasons to consider automotive tint include:

Reduced Heat – we all know how hot it can get when a car sits in the sun for an extended period of time. The solar control properties found in automotive window films can greatly reduce the level of heat gain inside a car providing more comfort for the driver and passengers. Additionally, this heat reduction will lead to better fuel efficiency because car owners can rely less on air conditioning to provide comfort.

Reduced Glare – the presence of glare while driving is not only distractive but dangerous as well. Window film does an excellent job at minimizing the level of annoying glare entering a car window. This will improve vision and safety and help prevent less strain on the eyes.

Blocked UV Rays – it has been proven that UV rays from the sun can cause serious damage to the skin as well as increase fading on interior car furnishings such as dashboards, seats, floor mats, and stereo equipment. Automotive window films help to reduce the level of interior fading and protect skin by blocking up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Clearbra Update: 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film in Bellevue

As an update to our valued customers please be aware we are the only shop in Bellevue to use genuine 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film as our primary brand film.

3M Paint Protection Film is the original ‘clearbra’ material and the most durable film on the market. It is the only paint protection film to offer an automotive acrylic enamel clearcoat on their product. While other shops in the Bellevue area have switched over to lesser known products we continue to proudly present the industry leader- 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film. We will continue to strive to apply the best protection to your car in Bellevue.

If you prefer film other than 3M Scotchgard we have available Xpel Ultimate, 3M Ventureshield and Llumar films as well. Search around online to make an informed decision. Our installers have 10+ years each working with 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film on the Eastside- Bellevue, Kirkland and Redmond area.

Some questions on Clearbra also known as Car Protect Film can arise in the research phase of searching out a capable Paint Protection Film or 3M Scotchgard shop in the area.  As with any service the length a shop has been located in Bellevue is a consideration- we are proud to have served Bellevue for over 15 years strong.  Google, Yelp, Facebook and Twitter searches should show a shop’s performance potential.  

Another consideration should be length of experience of installers- 8 & 12 years applying PPF describes our current Clear Shield crew.  Still another concern is film selection: we proudly offer the industry’s only automotive clear-coated (acrylic enamel) product- 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film.  

It performs flawlessly w/simple care,  just wax it like you do your car.  ’Self-healing’ polyurethane fims are a popular topic these days on the car blogs- we carry and/or have access to 3M Ventureshield, Xpel Ultimate, Llumar, Avery NanoFusion, Solargard Clearshield & Sherwin Shield Premier. These films are ‘top-coated’, also known as ‘hard-coated’.  (Contrary to some current marketing campaigns all aliphatic polyurethanes ‘self-heal’). Some are more durable than others, some look smoother &/or clearer than others, some resist bugs & stains more than others, some resist hard water spots better than others, etc.  

Clean, treat and condition your personal film choice w/care to protect your car’s film & ensure your Clearbra gleams as long as your ownership experience… (And as always please call or email w/questions or for an appointment, we’ll do our best to serve your needs).
