Tampa Bay drivers face blistering heat nearly every day of the year.
Keeping the glare, heat and UV from ruining your day simply makes good sense but most consumers aren’t familiar with car tinting options or incorrectly assume that all car tinting films are equal in performance.
We offer a wide array of high performance window films that suit every driver’s requirements:
Durability: Advanced Film’s LLumar and FormulaOne films are built to last. These coatings will maintain their color stability which is a critically important aspect for car tinting.
Heat rejection: While car films tend to look the same on your windows their are distinct differences in how a film filters out the heat.
Dyed Films: Dyed films are the least expensive and as you might expect the films with the lowest heat rejection capability. There are many manufacturers of low cost dyed car tinting but Advanced Film Solutions Eastman films are the cream of the crop.
High Performance Hybrid dyed-metal films: These metallic dye combination coatings reject more heat than a dyed film. Our Eastman ATR and FormulaOne Comfort series out-perform all competitive hybrid coatings which is why we focus on these choices.
Eastman Chemical’s is the world’s largest window film manufacturing company. Leading automotive brands include the economically priced LLumar and LLumar SelectPro as well as the prestige FormulaOne Brand that includes Pinnacle ceramic film, Stratos and CTX.
In addition Advanced Film Solutions installs Eastman’s Paint Protection Film that preserves your car’s finish!
Today’s new car electronics like Bluetooth and satellite radio systems require a signal enabling window film.
Pinnacle, Stratos and LLumar CTX will not interfere with these signals while simultaneously providing maximum heat rejection in all available light transmissions.
These incomparable films provide invisible IR heat rejection as well as the obvious visible light filtering.
The popular light transmissions are 30% for front windows and 15% for rear glass.
We also provide AirBlue 80 for windshield applications.
Advanced Film Solutions team of expert installers have several decades of experience and all FormulaOne films have a no fault transferable lifetime warranty.
Advanced Film Solutions uses high speed plotters to cut the exact pattern for your vehicle which limits sharp razors on your soft glass windows.
Advanced Film Solutions technicians use precision cut software and high speed plotters to match the pattern of all vehicles built since the 1990’s.
FormulaOne has a lifetime, no fault transferable warranty which is also unique in the Bay area.
Our window film tint specialists have more experience than any competitor and we have earned an A Plus Rating from the Better Business Bureau and have earned eight straight Super Service Awards from Angie’s List.
