Traditional window films try to do two things—block heat and look cool. They usually don’t do either of them well. Our advanced window films feature numerous protective benefits and enhance your car's style.

Signature XR & XR Plus Features


XPEL PRIME XR & XR Plus contains ceramic particles that filter out the sun’s infrared radiation — making them more effective than traditional metallized or dyed films.


In the past, keeping cool meant darker shades. The ceramic technology in XPEL PRIME XR & XR Plus allows us to provide the highest performance without sacrificing clarity and color.


Our ceramic particle technology blocks the vast majority of the sun’s heat-causing infrared radiation — keeping your interior cool and improving fuel efficiency.


Our nano-ceramic particle technology does not interfere with radio, cellular, and Bluetooth signals like traditional metallized films.


XPEL PRIME XR & XR Plus contains ceramic particles that filter out the sun’s infrared radiation — making them more effective than traditional metallized or dyed films.


Utilizing a nano-ceramic construction, PRIME XR Ceramic Film maintains the same flawless appearance and clarity for multiple years. Blocking up to 88% of infrared heat, PRIME XR will provide you with the level of performance you expect from a top-of-the-line automotive window tint without breaking the bank.

XPEL Prime XR Plus

Rejecting infrared heat thanks to a multi-layer nanoparticle technology, PRIME XR PLUS automotive window tint combines a cool look with extreme performance. Stay comfortable and protected in all types of weather with PRIME XR PLUS ceramic film.


When protection from heat isn’t as big a priority, XPEL PRIME CS is an ideal choice. Like XPEL PRIME XR, it blocks 99% 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.

What does tint do to your car?

Tint helps improve the life of your car while also making the ride more comfortable. It protects the interior from fading and warping, protects you from UV rays, and diminishes eye fatigue.

Does window tint affect vision?

No. In a study involving both young and elderly people, window tint was shown to have no statistical effect on vision.

Can I wash my car after tint?

Yes. Since the tint is on the inside of your car, it shouldn’t be affected. However, make sure no water gets inside your car and they clean your windows on the inside with Ammonia-free glass cleaner.

Does rain affect new tint?

No. Tint is on the inside of your windows and, if you keep your windows closed until cured (about 4-7 days), there shouldn’t be any problems.

What is the average length that window tint lasts on car windows?

Standard tint films generally last around 5 years. The XPEL window tint that we use at Sun Stoppers usually lasts at least 10 years, and often longer if properly maintained.

What should I do to help maintain my car’s tint?

    • Monitor your tint for imperfections. Vertical streaks could mean that your window is rubbing when you put it up and down. This will quickly wear out the window tint.
    • Avoid abrasive cleaners and use soft cloths when cleaning
    • Remove bubbles, and creases as soon as you see them forming.

Should I wait a certain number of hours before rolling my car windows down?

Yes. Rolling your windows down prematurely can harm the window tint just like washing your windows too soon can. While four days is usually long enough to wait, you might want to wait a week to be on the safe side.

Is it normal to have bubbles in my window after they are tinted?

Bubbles in the window tints are normal for a few hours after installation. If the bubbles remain after a week or two, the window tint was not installed properly.

What percent is a typical factory window tint?

Most cars come from the factory with tinted glass (different from window film that is applied when you want to tint your windows after you buy the vehicle). The typical visual light transmission (VLT) of factory glass is 15-26%.

What is the best way to clean tinted car windows?

There are two main considerations when cleaning tinted windows

      1. Use an ammonia free cleaner. A few good options are Invisible Glass, and Meguiar’s Glass Cleaner. 
      2. Use soft microfiber cloths when cleaning the windows. Even household items like paper towel with a rougher surface can damage tinted windows.

What is the darkest legal tint for cars?

Every state has different laws regarding tint darkness and reflection. If you are crossing state lines and get pulled over for window tint that was legal in your state but NOT in the state you are currently in, you will normally only get a warning. Visit to discover the window tinting laws in your state.
