LLumar® AIR BLUE Window Film is an automotive window tint using nano-ceramic technology to achieve an extraordinary level of protection. It dramatically reduces damage to the human skin and vehicle interiors from harmful ultraviolet rays that penetrate ordinary window glass, while keeping the vehicle significantly cooler.

AIR Blue film can keep a vehicle’s interior surfaces as low as 30 degrees cooler when compared to an unprotected vehicle. This temperature reduction not only increases comfort but it also reduces the use of a vehicle’s cooling system helping to decrease fuel consumption for a greener environment.

AIR Blue was created as a high-tech nano-ceramic technology. In other words it is a non-metallic substance that has been specifically designed with your vehicle’s electronic accessories in mind. LLumar® AIR BLUE Window Film does not interfere with cell phones, radios, radar detectors, or global positioning systems

AIR Blue provides the ultimate in comfort and protection as well as an elegant look while other films employ very dark unattractive tint to achieve similar levels of solar rejection. AIR Blue’s color is light enough to meet most visible light transmission laws with a high degree of optical clarity and low reflectivity. It will not impede night driving vision and LLumar® AIR BLUE allows your best friend to recognize you when he or she pulls up along side.

Do you own the company, or do you just have a photographic memory for promotional brochures? But seriously, it sounds great for the front windshield, although I will want some charcoal tint on the sides for a darker look.

AirBlue is 78. I am debating between AirBlue and Photosync75 which is heat transitioning and varies between 70 and 75 depending on temperature.

I just copied and pasted from their website.
Actually, the sides and back are 20% charcoal.

B
I don't know, I will find out and let you know tomorrow. Think it was 70 but I want to be sure. It is perfect.

I didn't look closely enough at your second, tinted picture. Very nice, and a good look with the frozen black. Does the 20% give you any difficulty with inside reflection while trying to use your outside rearview mirrors? I can only go 35% in my state for the side windows.

I was going to wrap my Frozen Black with xpel ultimate. Since it's already semi-matte do they recommend the stealth over the ultimate for a reason?

Well it is a bit off in sheen, but when compared to this xpel, I went with stealth. http://f10.m5post.com/forums/showpos...26&postcount=1
Also, I think the brake lines on this contribute more than they should.

After seeing it installed, I would probably have them do a small space back to back and see what I like better, before continuing on.
