Nature Meets Nanotechnology with VortexIR™ Ceramic Film Series by Solar Gard

Solar Gard, the San Diego-based leader in window film technologies, has announced the availability of the VortexIR„¢ Ceramic Film Series through its network of professional installation partners in North America. The newly released addition to Solar Gards extensive high-performance line of window films leverages the companys vast experience in nanotech applications, while also merging it with one of natures greatest materials.

VortexIR„¢ brings a new level of refinement and sophistication to those who demand a more comfortable interior, highly customizable level of privacy, and rich dark appearance on their vehicles glass, said Kendall Combs, General Manager for Solar Gard. If you demand smarter protection on your windows that works as hard as you do, then Solar Gards VortexIR„¢ Ceramic Film Series is the right application.

The advanced ceramic technology found in VortexIR„¢ blocks more than 99% of UV rays, rejects up to 96% of infrared rays and has a total Solar Energy Rejection of up to 65%. Because the ceramic nanoparticles used in the VortexIR„¢ series absorb light instead of reflecting it, vehicle windows benefit from a deeper and truer shade. Metal particles found in many films reflect a portion of the radio spectrum, but the ceramic in VortexIR„¢ does not “ meaning the advanced application wont interfere with mobile phones, GPS navigation, satellite radio, and other electronic devices.

As a member of Solar Gards high-end line of window films, VortexIR„¢ offers a level of increased safety, by helping keep shattered glass together in case of impact. This aftermarket solution installed by professional dealers also reduces interior fading, comes in a wide range of shades to accommodate driver preference and minimize glare, and boasts a limited lifetime warranty.

We look forward to offering drivers the powerful advantages of nature and nanotechnology, added Combs. For more information on the VortexIR„¢ Ceramic Film Series visit
