For many, tinted windows are best left to teenagers and those who would like to remain incognito. In truth, tinted windows serve a very important function in protecting you and your car from the damaging rays of the sun. The film used for tinted windows is a polyester substrate with a scratch resistant coating on one side and a clear mounting adhesive on the other. When having tinted windows installed, there are many factors to consider.
The concept of using window film for flat glass application was first introduced in the 1960s. Since that time, window tinting has become a huge market, with a wide range of colors and shades available. There are two basic types of tinted windows: metallic performance films, which provide a reflective surface, and the traditional non-reflective film. Tinted windows come in bronze, gray, gold, amber, and many other colors.
The benefits of tinted windows are huge. They block 65% of the sun’s heat and a whopping 99.9% of damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Not only do they protect the interior and upholstery of the vehicle, but they also protect your eyes from glare and eyestrain and your skin from sun damage. Window film also makes your vehicle’s glass safer by holding shattered glass in place.
