DUB - IR Ceramic Window Film
Window tinting isn’t a modification that’s exclusive only to the hardcore car enthusiast community—it’s everywhere. The blackout-limo shade of tint from the ‘80s is what brought on restrictions of how dark you could go on your windows, and safety tint laws were put into effect, not only so you could see better through your windows at night, but so cops can also see what’s going on inside the vehicle. Crazy as it seems, tint can be a lot more than just an aesthetic change; window tint can benefit you and your passengers’ health.
DUB Magazine may not strike a chord with tinting at first mention, unless you count the endless vehicles they’ve covered over the years having tint. Having health in mind, DUB recently launched a new product that’s not aimed specifically at enthusiasts but more towards the everyday consumer.
DUB IR™ is a new type of Nano ceramic tint that’s designed to block out harmful UV and infrared rays (IR), which is something that not all tints can do, no matter how dark the tint shade is. Driving a vehicle in broad daylight actually exposes you to more UV rays than you think, even if you’re partially shaded. Think of it like leaving the house without sunblock—you won’t be burned as if you would be standing in direct sunlight, but over time it can and will show its effects. DUB IR™ is currently in the process of acquiring the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Approval, which will only give you more reason to strongly consider this upgrade.
While we can’t force you to apply sunscreen every day, we do highly suggest, at the very least, outfitting your ride with DUB IR™ tint. It’s said to reject over 80% of infrared while blocking out 99% of UV rays. At the same time it also rejects up to 60% of heat, which will keep your interior cabin cooler. DUB IR™ is available in a variety of light and dark shades with 100% clarity to make it a fully legal modification, depending on your state’s laws.
DUB IR™ can’t be purchased by consumers as raw materials but your local installer can order as much or little that’s needed to tint your vehicle from DUB’s dealer network. Remember to check your state law to see what the legal amount of shade can be applied to your vehicle. In some instances, DUB IR can be used in a lighter shade and still perform as described. We recently visited AP Sounds and Customs in Southern California where they removed a generic, darker tint in favor of a lighter DUB IR™ upgrade.
The sun doesn’t have any mercy.
Left unprotected, the interior surfaces of your car—the dashboard, leather, fabrics and plastics—can deteriorate and discolor from relentless exposure to the sun’s heat and UV rays. And anyone who drives in the heat of the summer knows how unpleasant—or even impossible—it can be to get inside a car that has been sitting in the sun. It’s like sitting down inside an oven.
XPEL’s line of window film offers the same level of protection for the inside of your car as you get from our line of paint protection film for the outside.
When protection from heat isn’t as big a priority, XPEL PRIME CS is an ideal choice. Like XPEL PRIME XR, it blocks 99 percent of the sun’s damaging UV rays, and it provides a lifetime of color-stable, glare-blocking performance. It will never fade, crack, peel or turn purple like many lesser protection films often do. XPEL PRIME CS’s neutral charcoal finish looks great on any car, and like XPEL PRIME XR, it has a lifetime transferrable warranty.
