Car Tint and UV Protection

Window tinting for automobiles comes in many forms, shades, and even with different features. There are basic car tint kits that are sold for regular automobiles to highly customized and advanced tints for your car. There are tinted windows that protect against the sun's harmful UV rays, protect against the glare of the headlights, provide the automobile with better privacy, prevent the formation of mold and mildew on the outside of the car, as well as improve the resale value of your vehicle.

There are two basic types of auto tint. There are those that have 100% UV protection and those that have a certain percentage of UV blocking. The more common tint is the 100% tint, as it is the most popular with consumers. However, there are car windows with a lower UV percentage, such as the ones found on SUV's and other vehicles that are marketed towards the teenage market.

Car window tint film, when applied to a car, blocks out most of the bright sunlight but leaves enough visible light to prevent the presence of glare. The clear tint film can be made from a wide range of substances, including glass, vinyl, or polycarbonate. All have their own advantages and disadvantages, but all improve the brightness and visibility of the vehicle's windows. For example, clear vinyl films reflect the sun's UV rays, but are the thinnest and most fragile of the tints available.

When choosing tinted car windows, it is important to know which type of tint is best for you. There are tint films that block out more than just the visible portion of the sun's rays, although they will do this to a great extent. When choosing the best tint percentage, you must consider the percentage of UV blocking as well as the amount of UV fading that might occur over time as well.

Low tint percentages are suitable for low-visibility conditions, such as during the day, or when you park your car near tall buildings or trees. However, they are not as effective as high tint percentages. When driving at night, visibility is better with low-visibility window tints, but the downside is that it makes night driving much more dangerous. It is best to select window tints according to your own needs and driving habits, but there are some general rules for selecting window tints that apply generally.

If you are concerned about visibility during the winter, or if you plan to drive long distances in the winter, you should select a window tint with the highest percentage of UV blocking. On the other hand, if you like daytime driving and long distance traveling, you should use lower percentages of UV blocking. To find the perfect window tint percentage for your car, you need to obtain a guide showing the average values for tinted windows across different seasons and climates.

Window tint percentages are typically expressed in terms of U values, which is an abbreviation for Ultraviolet. A U value is calculated by multiplying the measured amount of visible light with the power of the violet ray. A higher U value indicates stronger radiation. For example, if a car has a visible light index (VL) of fifteen, that means that fifteen percent of the incoming light is enough to cause the skin to be burned. With a low U value, you get a better visual view of road conditions and can enjoy clearer roads without having to worry about radiation.

You may notice that a car's window shade and the interior of the passenger cabin have different values for UV radiation. The shade, which is usually made of a dark color, blocks up to ninety percent of the UV rays. Therefore, both passenger and driver can still enjoy excellent visibility, but at a reduced rate of energy consumption. This is one way in which manufacturers are able to lower the fuel consumption and carbon emissions associated with internal combustion engines.
