Considering a gift for yourself or someone you love of window tint? That’s a great idea that will provide value all year long. So, what do you need to know to make a good decision? We wanted to share this holiday vehicle window tint purchase guide to help you better understand vehicle window film so you can make an informed choice.
If you’re like most people, you probably assume all auto window tint is the same. The truth is that advancing technology has created significant differences in tint. In 2021, you have a variety of new, high tech options. These new films do not turn purple, are not reflective and they can reject a significant amount of heat without being dark. These new films are light years ahead of traditional vehicle window tint, so be sure you get the latest technology.
In addition to great looks, modern window tint offers several performance benefits as well. Unlike traditional tint that needed to be darker or more reflective to achieve significant heat reduction, these new films block the heat through infrared blocking technology. This enables a film to be nearly clear and still block a significant amount of heat. So, you can choose whatever darkness you want and still know that you will get solid heat reduction.
Another important note is that these films create a protective barrier from the sun’s damaging UV rays for both your skin and the cabin of the vehicle. Studies show the incidence of skin cancer among passengers corresponds directly with the side of their body exposed to the window. For example, a driver in North America tends to have a higher rate of skin cancer on their left side, the one exposed to the sun while driving. Many modern window films are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective protection from the sun. Click HERE to read more.
