Window Tint Specs

Window tint specs are not something to take for granted.  The better the film's technical score, the better overall performance you will get from it.

Below you will find the science for each of the films listed.

This is definitely all technical nerd stuff, but if you're into that sort of thing, you'll enjoy it!


The top 7 reasons why window film is a perfect partner for your car...


There are many reasons to tint your vehicle, including protection from harmful rays, safety and privacy. Window film can even help protect the investment in your car. 

Listed below are the top seven reasons that most people choose Solar Gard window film to protect themselves and their car. 


Without Window Tint, Your Car's Air Conditioner Strains To Keep You Cool On Hot Summer Days!

1. Driving comfort and energy savings 

Window film is designed to reject and absorb the solar energy that heats up the inside of your car. With the right window film, your car can reject up to 61% of the solar heat. This reduces the need to use your air conditioning, thus lowering the load on an engine and improving miles per gallon.


2. Protection from ultraviolet radiation

The window tint specs are clear, window film blocks up to 99% of the harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun that can cause skin cancer. 

Research shows that sun exposure in the car is particularly harmful because most of us don’t apply sunscreen. In Fact, all our window films are like applying a sunscreen with an overall amazing SPF rating of at least 285 or more.


3. Safer driving 

Window film reduces the glare from the sun, snow and headlights, which can increase visibility to make driving safer. 


4. Shatter protection

Once installed, window film helps hold glass together when shattered preventing dangerous shards from harming vehicle occupants in the event of an accident. 


5. Enhanced privacy

Tinting your vehicle can increase privacy and even help prevent theft by reducing the outside view of possessions inside the car. Window film is also far less expensive than privacy glass. Different films can be applied to back and side passenger windows to increase their privacy while using different films on the front windows to preserve the driver’s view.

Note: All window films must be applied in accordance with local tint laws


6. Protecting your investment 

The combination of heat rejection and UV protection can prevent sun damage to your car’s interior, protecting upholstery and vinyl from cracking and fading, maintaining the interior of your car longer. 


7. Customize your look

Window film can give your car a customized sleek look. Since Solar Gard window film comes in a variety of shades and colors, you can customize your car with the appearance you desire while gaining all the other benefits.
