Is anybody having data on how the windshield films 3M-CR70 and Garware -Ice Cool Shield perform with respect to heat rejection after a couple of years, if the vehicle is continuously exposed to direct sunlight on all working days?

Here is a nice comparison graph between 3M-CR70 vs V-Kool for those who are interested.

@splitsecond - did you do this experiment - what type of thermometer did you use - were the cars identical - was the film the same all around CR70/VKool70 on all glasses - was there any difference in upholstery/ carpets/ dash color?

Just on specs, CR70 has 4% better TSER and 3% better IR reduction - I wasnt sure what that would translate to.

Interesting thought - if you keep the cars out in the sun whether the temp will keep rising or eventually reach some steady state? what impact will sunfilms have on this temperature - I mean while the build up solar energy and temp will be slower compared to car with no films, but they will also block out the heat enerygy through radiation from a hotter car going out to atmosphere as well assuming rest of modes remain the same.

ignore the second question, didnt have morning coffee so the moronic babbling.

Does this mean inside temperature will increase after two to three hours with sun films?

How did you do this experiment? some details please

Has anyone of you installed Solar Gard Sterling 70 series sunfilm for your front windsheild ?

Heard it is better than 3M with 70% VLT and close to 35% heat rejection.

The cost for the same at Xenos, Chennai was Rs. 3500 for Linea's front windsheild.

Any feedback/comments ?

Can we get similar plot with out FILM at all.. It would be interesting to see the comparison. This data would be triggering point to many to go for film for front.

Thanks, may we know the reason ? Was the film not effective for its purpose ?
