Summer is coming, and if you live in the Central Valley, you know what that means; long hot days with plenty of unrelenting sunshine. Not only will the temperature rise dramatically inside your vehicle, but the harmful UV rays amplified via glass can cause interior surfaces to fade, crack, and look older than they are. Since last summer was kind of a bummer with travel and fun, we’re sure you’ve got some travel plans, so window tinting is a must. So, you can easily protect your car from UV damage with XPEL PRIME™ Window Tint at Paint Protection Fresno.

PRIME™ not only looks cool, it feels cool. It outperforms other types of films to keep you comfortable and protected. Not only is PRIME™ Window Tint backed by a lifetime transferable warranty, but the Skin Cancer Foundation also recommends PRIME™ as an effective UV protectant.

What is XPEL PRIME™ Window Tint?

XPEL is the leading name in the automotive window tinting industry. That’s because their products offer unrivaled results and are backed with a lifetime transferable warranty. XPEL PRIME™ enhances the look and feel of your car while offering long-lasting protection against harmful UV rays.

The PRIME™ line features three different types of tints, all with their own unique benefits, including:

  • Nano-Ceramic Window Tint: XPEL’s nano-ceramic tint offers optimal protection from infrared heat while effectively blocking over 99% of dangerous UV rays. That’s because this innovative window film contains a proprietary blend of ceramic particles that act as a strong barrier, blocking up to 98% of infrared heat. Not only does nano-ceramic tint make your ride look striking, but it also keeps your cabin comfortable and cool all year long.

  • Metallic Window Tint: This tint enhances your car’s aesthetics at an affordable price. XPEL’s metallic tint also offers powerful UV protection that drastically reduces your risk of skin cancer. The specially-formulated hybrid construction does not interfere with cellular or Bluetooth signals. Metallic window tint from XPEL is the perfect combination of value and performance.

  • Dyed Window Tint: The third tint in XPEL’s PRIME™ line is their dyed window tint. This pioneering tint brings safety and color stability together to reduce glare, block out UV rays, and make your car look its best.

Does Window Tint Reduce Heat?

The Fresno heat can turn your car into a moving oven. Thankfully, XPEL PRIME™ will help you keep your cool all summer long. That’s because their innovative tints significantly lower temperatures inside your car.

Automotive window tint acts like a shield between the sun and your car cabin, blocking thermal heat and keeping things cool and comfortable. In fact, XPEL window tint blocks out over 99% of UV rays, which are the leading culprit of sweltering car cabins.


Blocks UV Rays

Speaking of UV rays, XPEL PRIME™ not only reduces heat but also lowers your chances of developing skin cancer. Because of this, XPEL’s tint has earned the Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation.

All of that time spent driving around in your car exposes you to the sun’s damaging heat and UV rays. This can increase your risk of skin cancer. XPEL PRIME™ window film effectively rejects 98% of infrared heat. This not only improves your interior comfort but shields you from the dangers of UV rays.

With XPEL, you can have peace of mind all summer long while cruising the highways.


What Are the Advantages of XPEL?

In addition to blocking out UV rays, XPEL window tint also offers many other perks. Some of the top benefits of installing XPEL PRIME™ film in your car include:

  • Reduced sun glare: XPEL window tint reduces sun glare, leading to less eye strain and more comfort while you’re behind the wheel. This also lowers your risk of getting into an accident since you have a crystal-clear view of the road ahead.

  • Extremely durable: XPEL film is scratch resistant and super durable. This helps your windows stand up to rocks, thieves, and other potential hazards.

  • Looks fantastic: When you install XPEL window tint, you can immediately elevate the look of your car.

  • Privacy and security: Window film boosts your privacy and keeps people from seeing what’s inside your vehicle. This also deters criminals from trying to break in and steal your possessions.
