Product Specifications

3M invented window film in 1966. Over the last five decades we have continually improved the technology and effectiveness of our films. Alan and Associates provides a complete line of 3M products from 3M security film to window decorative film.

In response to terrorist threats and hurricane winds, 3M developed Scotchshield Ultra Safety and Security Window Films. These safety film for windows are constructed of patented micro-layered cross-woven polyester fibers that invisibly provide tear-resistance. This rip-stop feature dramatically improves personal safety from flying glass and adds a layer of security film for windows by applying the 3M window security film.

3M continued its industry leadership by developing 3M sun control window film and UV-protecting films. In 2002, we introduced an industry-unique film known as Night Vision (NV). NV has revolutionized the industry by providing superior window film sun control and comfort without the interior or exterior reflectivity commonly associated with window film.
