The popularity of car window tinting Yamanto can be seen widely these days. Do you know that the first protective films were not dark back in the days?
The mere use of protective films was just used in the manufacturing of vehicle glass windows and not mostly as part of a decoration back in the 1960’s and 1970’s. The first automotive films were made as transparent films, but coloured films were soon made and the start of their demand came to be.
At the near end of the 1970’s, limousines started using dark tints to give their passengers at the back extra protection and privacy. The dark tints were even 80% darker and the idea of having a lot of privacy became more popular with more people. However, darker tints also showed a lot of vulnerability since drivers find it so difficult to see especially at night.
The U.S. started creating laws regarding tints in the 1980’s but it was not enough at that time since a variety of tints became widely available in different colours and shades. Australia also offered a lot of variety of tints to its automobile consumers.
These days, Australia’s laws regarding car tints depend on States and Territories as they provide a maximum darkness allowed known as visible light transmission level or VLT. Gone are the days when you can totally tint your vehicle to any level of darkness you want since if you do not properly follow the law, an enforcer can stop you and issue you a ticket unless the tint darkness you have in your vehicle is prescribed by your eye doctor. If not, better follow the required law to avoid trouble.
