Car Tint — Austin, TX
In Austin car tint can dramatically reduce the heat buildup in your vehicle. Without tinted auto windows, summer temperatures can turn your vehicle into a solar oven – cars or trucks left out in the Texas sun can easily heat up to 150 degrees or more. We all know what it feels like to get into an untinted car; it can be painful to sit on leather upholstery, the steering wheel is too hot to touch, and the heat makes it difficult to breathe.
Benefits of Auto Tint
Automotive window tinting with 3M film can improve the appearance of the vehicle and reject most of the sunlight, heat and ultraviolet rays. This makes your sedan, truck or SUV much more comfortable, and prevents damage to interior leather and fabrics. Car window film also decreases the load on the AC system – increasing gas mileage and saving you money. Finally, tinted auto windows cut down on glare, enhancing visibility and safety.

You can use our car tint simulator to see what your vehicle would look like with different type and shades of 3M window film.
Protecting your Automobile, Truck or SUV
Austin, Texas averages 228 sunny days per year, with summer temperatures that frequently exceed 100 degrees. In addition to the heat, all this sunlight contains UV rays that will damage your seats, electronics, carpets and other surfaces – especially the dashboard and sun visors. Professionally installed car tint can eliminate this UV damage and the heat that can shorten the life of a car’s interior.
Enhancing Privacy and Safety With Car Tint
With our broad selection of auto tint shades, Austin car owners can increase the privacy and security of their vehicles – making it difficult for people outside the car to see the occupants or valuables inside. This is a significant crime deterrent, and the resilience of the window film also makes it more difficult to break into the vehicle. Safety is also enhanced by the glare reduction provided by the tinted auto glass.
