Congratulations on a new Tesla car, one of America’s leading luxury brand cars. However, now that you now made the investment to purchase this energy saving electric car, you should be concerned with protecting it.

The Texas’ harsh sun is glaring on your Tesla dashboard, and those harmful UV rays could be impacting your interior. Meanwhile, trapped heat also could be automatically turning on your Tesla cabin overheat protection in your Tesla Model 3 and draining your Tesla battery life.

3M™ Automotive Window Films are scientifically proven to lower heat, help slow UV rays, reduce glare, and add a layer of security. This added coat of protection can improve your overall driving experience in your new Tesla car.

Lower Heat inside Your New Tesla Car

A global leader in adhesive technology, 3M has created a Ceramic IR Film series designed to provide the ultimate heat rejection experience – which can help protect the interior of your new Tesla car from extreme heat caused by the Texas sun.

3M’s advanced nano-ceramic technology has proven up to 95 percent infrared rejection. The auto window tinting series also rejects up to 66 percent of total solar energy. Combined, this window tinting series offers optimal thermal comfort and can reduce the feel of sun on your skin.

3M’s auto window tinting also help your efforts from keeping your Tesla cabin overheat protection on your Tesla Model 3 from starting and draining your battery. (The Tesla cabin overheat protection is designed to kick-on when interior temperatures reach 104 degrees and will operate for 12 hours or until your battery energy drops below 20 percent.)

3M’s ceramic tint comes in a variety of tint levels so you can choose to change the look of your car dramatically or slightly. An authorized 3M™ Window Film Dealer, like Sunshades Tint & Sound in Austin, can help you determine the right level of tint for your lifestyle.

Protect Your New Tesla Car from UV Rays

Tesla Model 3’s all-glass roof offers a sense of openness from every angle in your car. However, this can also mean you and your passengers in your new Tesla model are experiencing the direct impact of UV rays from the sun.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, UV rays can cause premature aging, dark spots and wrinkles. UV rays also cause sunburn, which damages the DNA in your skin sells and increases your risk of cancer. This means you and your passengers are at risk.

UV Rays also can damage the interior of your new Tesla. UV Rays are the number cause of fading furniture and can damage your dashboard. According to the Florida Solar Energy Center, “Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is the single largest contributing factor in fading of fabrics, carpets and other furnishings.  Although visible light, electric lighting, heating, humidity, age of fabrics and fabric dyes all play a part in the process, UV radiation is attributed to 40% of the damage.”

3M auto tints reject up to 99.9 percent of UV rays. While nothing can completely stop the fading process inside your new Tesla car, 3M window tint has proven to help slow the process. This also adds a layer of sunscreen protection on your windows to protect you and your passengers.

Glare Reduction While Driving Your New Tesla Car

According to AAA, driving on a sunny day can go from enjoyable to scary when the sun starts to shine directly into drivers’ eyes. 3M window tint has scientifically proven to help reduce glare, making it more comfortable for your eyes while driving your Tesla.

Glare is caused by bright sunlight. It occurs when too much light enters your eye and hinders your eye’s ability to cope with it. By adding a layer of auto tint to your windows, the amount of glare can be reduced.

3M™ Automotive Window Film, Crystalline Series has proven to reduce glare by up to 77 percent with its darkest tint. Meanwhile, Ceramic IR Series can reduce glare by up to 93 percent with its darkest tint.

A 3M™ Authorized Window Film Dealer, like Sunshades Tint & Sounds, can help you to determine the best shade of tint for your new Tesla car, including the shade that is legally permitted within the State of Texas.

The security film has undergone rigorous testing, including high impact blasts. It is designed to keep you safe while also providing comfort, UV rejection and glare reduction in your new Tesla car.
