How Tint Cools Your Car

Tinted windows are created when solar control film is bonded onto a piece of window glass. Tinting film is usually made from clear layers of polyester film with very thin and even layers of tinting agents such as carbon and/or metals deposited onto the film.

A common misconception is that window tinting is always too dark, and night-time driving is impossible when a car is tinted. The truth is that there are many window tinting films in various shades to suit your own personal preferences. Also, unlike sunglasses that do impair your ability to drive at night, tinting film is designed to reduce glare and not impede night-time driving. State window tint laws also protect consumers against illegal tint that may put them in harm’s way while driving in poor weather or at night.

Another misconception is that window tinting is bonded onto the outer surface of automotive glass. Window films are always applied on the inner surface which also protects the film itself from flying debris outside the car. Tinting film doesn’t just block visible light. It also blocks harmful cancer-causing ultra-violet (UV-A and UV-B) rays as well as infra-red (IR) rays that cause heat to build up in your car; however, how effective a film is in blocking these rays depends on the type and construction of the film, the manufacturing processes used, and the quality of the final installation….

That’s where Ultra Tint can help!
