• Why 3M Safety & Security Window Films

    The 3M Company

    3M retains the original window film patent from 1966 and continues to differentiate its products from those offered by its competitors. Today there are millions of square feet of 3M window films installed throughout the world.

    The 3M Brand

    3M makes over 40,000 different products. The average consumer has 300 3M products in his/her home.

    3M – The Original

    Based upon several 3M core technologies, 3M Company holds the original window film patent.

    3M – The Polyester

    3M manufactures its own polyester, including patented nano-technology, microlayer, and color-stable technology film.

    3M – The Adhesive

    3M makes its own adhesives. From Scotch Tape® and Post-it® Notes to permanent construction adhesives, 3M is a world leader in adhesive technologies. The adhesives we use with our films provide a unique combination of fast drying, optical clarity, long-lasting bond and simple removal.


    No one knows abrasion like 3M. From sandpaper to Scotchbrite™ scouring pads, this is another category in which 3M is a worldwide leader. This expertise has also taught us how to protect against abrasion. So to protect the 3M Window film and your windows from scratches, we’ve created an exterior layer that is six to ten times more durable than the window film alone. It can even hold up to fine steel wool and ammonia-based cleaners.

    UV Protection

    3M solar window films block up to 99.9% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. 3M places the UV inhibitors in the film’s adhesive to stop UV light at the surface of the glass. Consequently, the adhesive does not yellow like that of the competition. In addition, many of 3M’s solar window films are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation.

    The Quality

    3M has achieved the highest possible quality rating of manufacture: ISO 9002:1994.


    3M window films are maintenance-free. You can even clean them with ammonia-based products.
