Contemporary motor vehicles usually have tints that are factory made but since in most locations there is a lot of heat from the sun many individuals see the need to have their cars tinted with film so that the heat is eliminated or decreased.
The film is applied in the inside or outside of glass surfaces in cars as well as boats and they may in addition be put in the outside or inside of the walls at homes so as to decrease the heat of the sun.
The film is made from a chemical called polyethylene terephthalate which is a resin of the polyester thermoplastic polymer family and because of its dimensional stability, its clarity, and the capability of accepting diverse surfaces it can be applied on many glass surfaces.
The type of film depends on the usage that is intended in the automobiles, architectural or marine and they differ also in the kind of use either in polycarbonate or glass, and also by the way they are used either for security, safety, solar control or for privacy.
The window film is usually applied by people who are professionals in companies that offer the service and there are some films which any person may apply by the self and the good thing is that there are numerous colours, shades, grades and thickness all which are made for a variety of challenges.
Films may be used for diverse problems such as glazing, protection from graffiti, branding, signage, privacy, security, safety, UV filtration, thermal insulation, glare and heat reduction.
Films are cost effective as method of reducing the heat and it helps to cool the homes and other buildings by decreasing the volume of heat that is transferred via glazing and they are usually applied on glass windows which are flat so as to m decrease the radiation that enters through the window.
Car films may be metalized or dyed and may be visible to light or transparent and they help to convert the solar radiation to infrared radiation which is rejected through the glass to the outside of the window and current films are made from metallic and ceramic materials and these costs less than the window films.
If the windows have a design which offers heat during winter for the homes then the window film may be applied inside the windows and these films helps in reducing the volume of ultraviolet radiation that may enter a window.
Silvered window films which m may be applied as well and they block particular wavelengths of the infrared from the sun’s radiation and also rejects the heat and does not reduce the natural light but and the films meant for security may be applied when a window is broken.
