3M Automotive Black Shade

3M’s Black Shade Series is a range of low cost non-metalised, dyed polyester films. These are easy to maintain films that won’t interfere with mobile phone, GPS and satellite radio reception. Additionally, the films block almost the entire amount of UVA and UVB rays which are the main cause of fading and skin damage. The Black Shade Series rejects up to 43% of the total solar energy coming through your windows, providing a “cool effect” in more ways than one. The films have a scratch resistant coating, and several different shading levels in an attractive charcoal hue.
