Global diversified technology company and inventor of window film technology 3M is proud to introduce its Prestige Window Film line. These films are the first clear and non-metal based window films that utilise a Multi-layered Optical Film (MOF) technology comprising hundreds of layers to significantly reduce heat and UV rays entering a home or building.
Backed by a 15-year warranty, the Prestige Series offers a range of benefits suitable for residential and commercial property owners in virtually every climate and environment. For properties near the coast or in humid areas, the absence of metal in these new films prevents corrosion of films – a serious problem for other clear, metal-based window films. In addition, the Prestige Series does not interfere with wireless and cellular signals, which can occur with metallic window films.
“The Prestige Series marks a significant technological advancement in how window films can enhance buildings and homes,” said Tan Kok Tiong, General Manager, 3M Industrial Business. “Residential and commercial property owners can now have high performance clear or lightly-tinted window film options that combine all the benefits of heavily tinted or reflective film without the inherent drawbacks of darkened rooms or shiny windows.”
The Prestige Series can reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared heat and lowers the room temperature by up to 5 Degrees Celsius. This results in less stress on air-conditioning systems, thereby reducing energy costs. As these films allow more light to enter a home or building than traditional windows films, they can also help building owners and homeowners save on lighting costs.
Since 2005, 3M window film products have been recognised by the international organisation Skin Cancer Foundation for its effectiveness in protecting against UV rays. Research from the Skin Cancer Foundation has indicated that harmful UV rays can actually penetrate through untreated window panes. Reinforcing 3M’s Prestige Window Films on glass is an excellent way to protect home and building occupants.
Over periods of time exposure to sunlight, this can irreversibly fade valuable items such as upholstery on couches, wood furniture or flooring inside a home. 3M Prestige Window Films are designed to block up to 99.9% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, which are the single largest contributor to fading. The Prestige series also has less reflectivity than glass, so the appearance of the home or building is virtually unchanged.
3M has been a world leader in window films for over four decades, having received the first patent for window films in 1966. The Prestige Series marks 3M’s latest technological contributions to the industry. Leveraging world-class capability in adhesives, Multi-layer Optical Film (MOF) technology and precision manufacturing, 3M has created a revolutionary window film that is thinner than a Post-it note, even while consisting of hundreds of layers of film.
