We often see window tint on cars and even on home windows. The concept of car window tinting and home window tinting have similarity in concept, but they can be different in layout.
Car window tinting works to shrink to curved glass, and it has a good mechanical adhesive stick on the glass. Automotive tinting requires cleaning with ammonia-free cleaners to last long.
While both car window tint and home window tint appear to have an equal purpose, the latter will not shrink. Some window film makers utilise a water-activated chemical adhesive. It is designed to bond hard and dry over time. This adhesive has been out on the market for quite some time now and consistently works well with particular brands of window films. Using ammonia-based products in cleaning home window tinting with these adhesives will be fine.
Automotive window films are designed to block close to 70 per cent of the heat where architectural films can block up to 84 per cent of the heat. When it comes to UVA and UVB sun rays, both block over 99 per cent. The sun-protecting features of window tint benefit both vehicle owners and homeowners, and mostly the very reason why many people tint their windows.
Other features of window tinting that appeals to many include sun glare control, energy use reduction and its elegant look. To make the most out of window films, it should be installed properly. It is best to have an expert in tint application do the job for you. They also do a good job of window tint removal.
