Why you should tint your new car’s privacy glass
If you’re a new car buyer, you will notice the back windows are much darker than the front. That’s because cars are coming off the production line with privacy glass. Because of the darkness of the glass, many owners only ask us to tint the front windows, thinking the back ones are already tinted. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. If you want maximum comfort in summer, it’s still a good idea to have all the windows tinted, including the privacy glass, and here’s why.
Privacy glass is made of dying the glass. The dye has minimal heat absorption capabilities and only cuts out a fraction of UVA rays. Privacy glass cuts out light and glare but very little heat. It has similar thermal properties to the clear-glass front windows, which means your car will be really hot when you first get into it in summer, and the air conditioning will use more energy to do its thing. It will also allow harmful UVA rays into the car. So, although many people don’t realise it, tinting these windows still has significant benefits. But what about the darkness of the windows, because privacy glass is often already at the maximum darkness allowable by law.
Every year, window films are becoming more sophisticated, which means there are more products available for more uses. One such product we recommend for your factory-tinted rear windows is a clear film. This film won’t add darkness to the rear windows as it’s fairly light, but it will cut out 30% heat and 99% of UVA rays. It will also keep the glass from spraying everywhere if the window breaks, which is a great safety feature.
As great as privacy glass looks, and as much as it hides what’s in your car from outside observers, it provides no other benefits. So, when we tint your front windows, don’t forget to ask us about tinting the rear privacy glass too. You’ll reap the benefits of a cooler car that is safer and gives the passengers maximum protection from harmful UVA rays.
Benefits of tinted window:Car windows are often tinted for protecting the car’s interior from unwanted sunrays and glare, and also, for providing privacy to the passengers. To serve the same functions, homeowners prefer using dark window films as a part of their home improvements projects. These films help in blocking sunrays, thereby protecting the curtains, furniture, flooring and room’s interior from becoming faded. Also, they provide privacy and insulate the rooms in winter and summer. But when it comes to the maintenance part, you need to learn proper cleaning of tinted windows.
How to clean tinted windows?
Cleaning tinted windows should be done at least 30 days after the new window film has been applied to the glass. Never use cleaners that contain strong chemicals, especially AMMONIA.
Harsh chemicals can react to the tinted film, causing it to blotch, fade or even peel from the glass. Regular dishwashing soap mixed with soft water or diluted vinegar and water is a safe homemade cleaner if you cannot find a safe solution.
Only use soft window cleaning towels. Never use newspaper, white or brown paper towels, scrub pads, or a window scraper. These products will cause scratches and sometimes severe damage to the window film.
