A Revolutionary New Product.
Smarter windows keep weather out where it belongs. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film is a low emissivity, or “Low E,” window film that helps improve the insulation value of a typical single-pane window close to that of a double-pane window, and of a double-pane close to that of a triple-pane.
Application of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film is much, much less expensive than actually replacing all that glass, and the results rival or match the performance, and appearance, of new glass.
Historic registered buildings, newer office towers, and every sort of building in between can be improved by the addition of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film. It enhances sustainability, comfort, and helps to provide fade protection, while remaining virtually invisible, with a neutral appearance that will not dramatically change the look of your windows—inside or out.
Virtually invisible insulation. Enhance comfort and efficiency year round with 3M™ Thinsulate™ Window Film Climate Control 75.

Frequently Asked Questions
Solar control films focus on the solar energy spectrum and are primarily designed to keep the sun’s energy from entering a building. In order to be effective, the glass needs to be exposed to sunlight. The effectiveness of a film in preventing solar energy from entering a building is measured by its Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).
While Thinsulate has properties that allow it to reduce the solar energy entering a building, the film is also designed to help prevent the transfer of radiant heat from one side of the glass to the other. Radiant heat is based solely on the temperature difference between the outside of the glass and the inside of the glass. Therefore, the Low E properties of Thinsulate help keep warm air inside during the winter months, and keep the warm air outside during summer months.
Thinsulate helps reduce the amount of solar energy entering the building (SHGC) AND it helps provide additional insulation to reduce the transfer of radiant energy from one side of the glass to the other (U Value).
Warm in the winter
Cool in the summer
A single pane window loses 20 times as much heat as the same area in an adjacent well-insulated wall.
