Window tinting is the act of applying tint to windows. This will either cover the whole window or certain portions of the window. Window tinting film has become more popular over the past few years and has become an increasingly common part of the “New Age” look of most modern buildings. Window tinting film also is referred to as window film, window tinting film, or window tint.
Window tints are most commonly applied to vehicles to increase their visibility during night time driving by blocking out other car headlights and the like. It can also help in the winter to reduce the visibility of ice on the road, and increase safety for travelers. Window tinting is also useful for preventing vandalism of vehicles and to improve the function and efficiency of the vehicle as well. Window tints can also be used to prevent the visibility of license plate numbers in the vehicle.
When you are driving, there is a tendency for your eyes to be distracted by the glare of the sun on the road. This distraction is called the reflected glare and it can make it very difficult to read road signs, check mirrors, or drive at night. Window tinting films work by deflecting the glare of the sun so that you can better see the road. The reflectivity of the film depends upon the index of the tint material used. The higher the index of the material, the greater the amount of the glare it blocks out.
There are two main types of window tinting available on the market today. There is the standard tint which reflects the sunlight and this is usually the cheapest type of tint. But even with a lower index, the sunlight is still reflected into the driver’s eye. A tint film like this will not prevent the sun from directly hitting the vehicle, but will prevent the majority of the sun’s rays from entering the car windshield. This is beneficial in hot and humid climates because it reduces the amount of heat and sun that enter the car.
There are also Jupiter window tinting films that have a polarized coating on their surface. This prevents the glare from both the sun and the headlights. This feature is the polarizing film within the film that causes the light to refract differently as it travels through the tint. This allows the light to come in and hit the driver’s eyes at a lower intensity, reducing the amount of glare on the road. While this may not completely solve the problem of glare on the road, it definitely lessens it.
Regardless of what type of window tinting film you choose to use on your automobile windows, it is important that you make sure you purchase a quality product. Using cheap products that peel off quickly or are not applied correctly can not only damage your windows, but can also create safety risks. Choose a professional dealer when purchasing window tinting so you can be confident in your purchase.
