Window tinting is done by a very thin film and it also done by lamination, which is glued on the inner part of the glass surface in automobiles, ships, homes and many buildings. Usually polyester is used to make these window tints because of its lucidity and tensile strength.
Window film can be described as dyed, metalized, or ceramic, by the elements it contains; for its performance and the aesthetics or by its intended use. They are mostly used where the surface is generally curved. They are also being used at the places where flat glasses are used. Window films are applied on to the glasses commonly by the professional companies but D.I.Y kits for tinting are also available in the market.
What does car tinting do? You can now find many grades, colors, shades and thickness available in window films which are used for cars’ window tinting. It furnishes the existing glass and is the best upgrade available for the glass.
The window tints can be very useful for the car because:
It reduces the heat and helps to reduce the glare while travelling in hot sun. They are very useful, because it prevents the heat rays to enter inside the car and reduces the glare which is caused due to reflections and refractions.*
Helps in thermal insulating. It reduces the heat inside the car, thus making it inside of the cars cool.*
For safety; if the glass is broken due to accidents or other mishaps, these films help to bind the cracks.*
When the car windows are tinted, people cannot see inside of the car, thus giving privacy to the passengers sitting inside.*
It also protects the windows from scratch marks.*
Thus, window filming serves as the best and budget method to reduce heating and the car owners don’t have to spend much on coolants, as it reduces the amount of heat transfer in the car.
Tint films are generally applied to the inner part of the flat glass which reduces the infrared, visible light, ultra-violet light and the heat radiation. They are dyed so that they can convert solar radiation into infrared radiation hits onto the window and it is then refused back through the glass outwards. Nowadays, the window films are made of ceramic so they aren’t dyed (usually gets decolorized after extensive use) and they are also non-metallic. These window films made of ceramic costs higher than the normal ones, but it reduces the heat transmission by 80%. They have the power to curb heat transfer and to block UV rays.
Thermal properties of window tinting Heating and cooling systems have energy costs, and window films can be used to increase car insulation. Modern windows with low-solar-gain glass do not need any retrofit films, as most of the windows do not have a low solar heat gain, the window tint make a lot of sense as a retrofit energy improvement. They provide thermal comfort and, they are most competitive and environment-friendly. It is best, especially in hot and mixed climates.
The automobiles window tinting reduces the VLT, that is visible light transmission, through car windows. This can be problematic during the night time, or when the motorists must be able to see through the windows of others to spot hazards. Police would also want to identify passengers in a vehicle. There are many jurisdiction and laws that have passed to restrict the darkness of tinting.
