Nano Ceramic Technology
The Gold Standard for Sun Protection
Heat Shield window films utilize Nano-Ceramic technology, which is considered the biggest technological advance in window film since the inception of traditional dye-based products back in the 1960’s. Nano-Ceramic films are state of the art products that perform at a level unprecedented in the window film industry. Unlike older film products, these films are not dark, shiny or reflective. The spectrally selective coatings on Nano-Ceramic films filter out 65%–99% of the infrared heat normally transmitted through insulated double pane glass, while still allowing the full amount of visible light to be transmitted. They are especially useful in applications where homeowners and property managers wish to keep the architectural integrity and beauty of their properties in place while still enjoying the benefits of an energy control window film.
NON METAL TECHNOLOGY SAFE FOR TODAY’S WIRELESS LIFESTYLE
Because of its unique nano-ceramic technology, Heat Shield is compatible and will not interfere with today’s cell phones, satellite radio’s, satellite TV and won’t compromise signal strength like traditional metal films.
HOW THE SMALLEST THING CAN MAKE THE LARGEST DIFFERENCE
Heat Shield is manufactured using nano-ceramic technology, one of the world's most advanced technologies in material sciences, which utilize smaller than microscopic particles as building blocks. This makes it possible to create extremely capable high performance films to the most exact and demanding specifications.
Each nano-ceramic particle in Heat Shield is only 10nm* in length. Its diameter is two to three hundredth smaller than the wavelengths of visible light, making the film virtually colorless and extremely transparent.
The ultra fine particles give the film the incredible dexterity of rejecting and transmitting only selected rays in the electromagnetic spectrum. Thus, Heat Shield offers an unprecedented level of total solar heat rejection without compromising on clarity and visibility. While conventional films block out large portions of the visible light we all want in our homes and office, our spectrally tuned Heat Shield forms a clear barrier that blocks out 99% of the ultra violet radiation and 99% infrared heat, the # 1 cause of skin cancer and premature fading. (Extremely critical for residential and commercial solar exposed glazing systems.)
It is this revolutionary technology that sets Heat Shield apart as the gold standard for the ultimate in sun protection.
HOW DOES HEAT SHIELD PROTECT YOU?
Besides total solar heat rejection, Heat Shield’s unique nano-ceramic technology offers you superior features when compared to conventional metal or dye based window films.
OPTIMUM IR HEAT SHIELDING
Heat Shield has up to an 85% visible light transmittance and cuts out more than 99% of the IR Heat. This helps keep the temperature in your home and office more comfortable. The reduction in UV radiation and IR Heat creates balanced cooling which helps eliminate hot and cold spots without needing to overuse your air conditioner. The Heat Shielding effect’s of Heat Shield will help maximize year round energy savings.
ULTRA HIGH CLARITY
Heat Shield cuts out the heat and let’s in the light. Up to 85% of essential visible light is transmitted. The product is also less reflective than glass itself, which enhances your view both day and night.
EFFECTIVE ULTRA VIOLET RADIATION REJECTION
Heat Shield rejects as much as 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays and protects you as well as extending the lifespan of interior furnishings.
Heat Shield is extremely durable when compared to traditional films and can withstand intense solar heat without bubbling, cracking, hazing, delaminating or distorting. Unlike dye based films which deteriorate and fade purple over time, Heat Shield maintains its first-class color and performance throughout the life of the product.
The film's high tensile strength and resilient adhesive helps prevent the glass from flying when shattered or subjected to major impact.
