When auto glass is tinted, a thin, self-adhesive film is applied to the interior of the glass. The film may be dyed to absorb solar radiation or it may be reflective. Tinted film is often applied after a vehicle has been purchased rather than during manufacture. Retrofitting a car with Auto Window Tinting in Corona CA can have several benefits.
First of all, tinted glass can absorb and/or reflect solar radiation, depending on the type of film. Ultraviolet radiation, an invisible component of sunlight, can cause skin cancer and other skin problems with prolonged exposure. Tinted glass protects against harmful UV radiation by reflecting it back into the atmosphere. Not only does this benefit humans, it also keeps the car’s upholstery from fading.
Tinted glass can also reflect heat, keeping the temperature cooler inside the car and helping the air conditioner cool the car more efficiently. Many owners of black cars say that tinted glass is essential to keep the temperature bearable in the summer.
Tinted glass can also be a safety feature. For one thing, it reduces glare, making it easier for drivers to see. Glare is a dangerous distraction, and it can come from many sources, including reflections from buildings and other cars, water, or snow. In addition, the film holds the window glass in one piece and keeps broken glass from separating into shards. This feature also makes it difficult for a thief to break into a car.
Another benefit of tinted glass is that it improves the appearance of the vehicle. Many car owners get tinted windows simply because they like the look. Not only does it make a car look sporty, darkened glass also provides a sense of privacy. While the driver and passengers can easily see out, it is harder for others to see inside the car.
Tinted glass can be installed in a short time, but know that it can take up to 30 days to fully dry out. The process is known as “curing,” and it is common to see moisture or air pockets between the film and glass while the water is still evaporating through the film.
