How Automotive Window Tinting Works

From Light to Shade  
You may have heard of window tinting, but were never quite sure of how it worked or what the point was.  Many people are under the impression that window tinting is done because it makes a car look cool.  However, it does much more than that.  In fact, window tinting can actually make your car cooler – the interior temperature will drop quite dramatically when the sunlight can’t get to the interior of your car.  This is especially beneficial out here in Scottsdale.  The diminished sunlight means that your fabric won’t fade, and your leather won’t crack.  It also gives you a measure of privacy as people will not be able to peek inside and see what you might have in your car.  This small fact can also help deter thieves as well.

How Are Windows Tinted?  
Window tinting is a relatively simple process, but it needs to be done right and with high quality products if you want the best results.  A very thin and transparent sheet of film is carefully applied to your car’s windows.  Each film has a special adhesive that adheres to the window’s surface for a smooth, flawless look. Typically every window is tinted in order to give the car a uniform look. Thicknesses in the film can range from 0.001 inches to 0.004 inches.  We will examine your car in order to determine the best thickness as well as which brand to apply.  We work with only the best, from 3M to Sun Tek, in order to provide quality service and products.  The darkness of the windows can also be adjusted and we will give you all the options available so you can choose how you want the finished look of your car.   

Does the Car Type Matter?  
The kind of car you drive has absolutely no bearing on whether or not the windows can be tinted.  All car makes and models can have their windows tinted.  We even offer decorative film if you are so inclined.  Don’t let the Arizona heat get you down – or your car.  Tinting your windows can be a great way to stay cooler in the heat, give your car a sleek look, and give you peace of mind with additional privacy.  Contact us to see how we can help you today and show you all the possibilities that tinted windows can bring.  You may be surprised at how excellent window tinting can be!
