Window tinting is the process of applying a thin layer of adhesive film to the exterior of a window. There are several reasons to this:
- To reduce radiation heat from the sun
- To filter harmful UV rays from natural light
- To protect assets such as upholstery, dashboards and other interior items
- To strengthen the window and improve security
- To reduce glare from headlights and surface reflections
- To provide greater privacy with a one way view
- To improve thermal efficiency
- To improve the efficiency of your air conditioner
There are different types of adhesive and each has different properties and specifications in terms of how effective they are in achieving the above objectives. Some types of tint film are more effective at filtering UV rays and other types provide darker shading and greater privacy.
There are three main types of tinting
- Adhesive film
- OEM tinting
Adhesive film is still the most popular form of window tinting. Tint film comes in different flavors such as flat, metallic and mirrored. OEM tinting is a process where the tint is applied during the glass manufacturing process. This type of tinting has lighter shade. It also more expensive to replace OEM tinted glass. Another type of tinting is coated tinting. This is usually in the form of a spray that is applied to a window. Whether you want tint film or coating, the process should only be done by experts.
Keep in mind there are laws that govern tint limits and the shades of darkness. When looking tinting company, it is a good idea to select a local company that knows the ordinances, bylaws and regulations related to window tinting.
