See You at SEMA

August 3rd, 2021 by Bryan

Exhibitors always bring out their biggest and best for the SEMA Show to be held October 30-November 2 in Las Vegas. Whether tires or pinstripes, huge displays with the latest cars or the demonstration areas where attendees can try out the products themselves, SEMA has it all, including window film.

Here’s just a few of the industry’s latest products set to make an appearance.

3M — Booth #12145 & #61021

3M Introduces New Window Tint

3M announced its new window tint offerings with its automotive window film obsidian series. The Series is a high-performance automotive window tint that uses the company’s patented infuse technology. According to 3M, it provides better durability, color retention and fade resistance than many dyed films due to the bonding of the dye particles into the film.

In addition to its color durability, the Obsidian series also offers:

• Reduced glare up to 91 percent;
• Strong heat rejection up to 44 percent total solar energy rejection;
• Low reflectivity;
• UV protection;
• A SPF of up to 1000;
• A non-metallic makeup that will not interfere with mobile devices; and
• Increased privacy.

The company will also demo its Protekt PPF film, a transparent paint protection film with a top coat complete with self-healing properties to protect against scratches and weathering. Protekt ensures that a vehicle’s paint finish is protected from stones, gravel, sand, winter salt, tree sap, bugs, oil and other hazards of the road.

Attendees can also get a sneak peek of the new Madico Experience, slated to launch later this year. It is expected to provide dealers with new benefits and options to help grow and sustain their business (see article page 18).
