FormulaOne Car Window Tinting Helps You Stay Cool & Feel Even Cooler on Illinois Roads.
In just minutes, the hot Chicago summer sun can send the interior temperature of your car skyrocketing to up to 150°F – making your drive not only uncomfortable, but possibly dangerous.
With FormulaOne automotive window film from Umbra Window Tinting in Chicago, you can reduce the temperatures inside your car by up to 65% before you even turn the air conditioner on! Say goodbye to blistering leather seats and a blazing steering wheel. FormulaOne car window tinting takes the strain off your air conditioning system, helping you to save on fuel and subsequently costs at the pump.
Plus, our informed team members can educate you on Illinois window tinting laws as outlined in bill HB3325. Passed in 2009, this bill allows tinting of front and rear windows on passenger vehicles according to the following guidelines:
- Option 1 – Both front and rear windows can be tinted up to 35%.
- Option 2 – For darker back windows, you can go up to 30-35% net darkness. However, then the front windows may only have up to 50% tinting.
- Option 3 – If rear windows are tinted below 30%, the front windows cannot have a tint. Vehicles equipped with factory rear tint are permitted to have up to 50% tint for front windows.
To find a window film that offers both the privacy and tinting you want, while remaining within state law, contact Chicago’s favorite automotive window tinting company now.

Choose a Solar Window Film Product for Your Project
Do you imagine yourself gliding down the road like a spy, disguised by sophisticated cover? Rolling like a rock star, bass thumping in dramatic darkness? Or do you simply want a charcoal to match your factory privacy glass? With our dyed window tints, you’re free to dream up a look that will transform your car from ordinary to envy inspiring. Our dyed window tints are definitely high on style. Still, they’re a smart buy that’s worthy of your auto investment. Every shade can turn heads, resist scratches, reduce annoying glare, and block 99% of ultraviolet rays. Our dyed window tint is a mixture of polyethylene, UV blockers and premium dye that’s extruded into a micro-thin sheet, then coated with a second UV blocker and adhesive. Other tints films have dye applied only to the surface, making them less durable and likely to discolor.
Drive in style, revel in comfort and connect with ease, thanks to all the features loaded into our ultra premium ceramic window tints. They’re available in a generous range of sophisticated charcoal shades, so you can create precisely the look you want. Plus, every one of this luxurious tint’s stylish shades is paired with nano-ceramic technology. This manufacturing innovation makes it possible to deliver superior heat rejection, glare control and UV protection that’s completely metal-free, so it won’t interfere with signals from your electronic devices. If you’re demanding and want your car to get noticed, you’ve found your match in ceramic auto tints. Our auto tints start with components like color-stable dye and powerful adhesive. We manufacture to the strictest standards, too, adding a ceramic nanoparticle layer for superior heat rejection and doubling up on UV protection, plus including an extra layer for best-in-class scratch resistance.
If you’re happy with the look of your car windows but demand a higher level of performance, then LLumar clear window tints are for you. They upgrade the glass in your vehicle, increasing UV protection, comfort and more without any window-darkening tint. This makes them compatible with factory glass of all shades, from clear to deep charcoal. Whether you’re interested in pure and simple 99% UV protection or a full-featured ceramic film that delivers UV blocking power plus serious comfort enhancements, we’ve got you covered. And you’ll appreciate what comes standard with all our clear window films: barely detectable appearance, powerful protection against harmful UV rays, and impressive durability, thanks to our best-in-class scratch protection.
We get it: no matter how small, that first little nick hurts. And keeping an eye out for everyday road damage is the worst. Why not add a layer of LLumar car paint protection film? You’ll worry a lot less and enjoy driving a lot more. Our barely detectable paint protection films are the smart, easy way to keep your factory or custom paint finish looking fresh and flawless for miles. We offer two levels of protection, so you can choose the level of defense that fits your needs: Paint Protection Film for lasting durability and Platinum Paint Protection Film, for advanced armor. No matter which option you choose, you’ll appreciate what this specialty film’s self-healing properties do for the life of your finish – and for your life on the road.
