Frequently Asked Questions

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 In both automotive and architectural applications, the film, which is available in a variety of thicknesses, clear of tinted, is generally applied to the interior of the glass, although specialised exterior films are available. In the event of an impact or explosion, the film serves to reduce the likelihood of glass breakage, but where shattering does occur the film firmly hold the pieces glass together preventing life threatening injury. These films have an exceptionally strong, energy-absorbing mounting adhesive, and are composed of polyester film layers that are extremely high in tensile strength and break strength.

 
 
 
In both automotive and architectural applications, solar films can reduce harmful ultraviolet rays by up to 99.9 percent, depending on the specific film. Many films will additionally reduce glare by over 90% and reduce solar heat gain by up to 77%

Professionally installed films are virtually undetectable . There is a curing period after the installation however clarity after this short period will be expected to be optically clear. Most architectural films are bonded to the glass with a special mounting adhesive called "CDF," meaning "clear, distortion-free." Most users will agree that optimum visual acuity is often increased with our film because glare is reduced, greatly reducing eye strain.

Often See Purple Bubbling Window Film on Cars, Will Film Do This Over Time ?
 
Purple bubbling film is a sign of a very low grade window film, where the mounting adhesive and dye components have broken down. Our Films are warranted against this, using more stable and advanced dye chemicals and/or permanent metal layers that do not discolour over time. Our adhesive is known world-wide for its strength, durability, and optical clarity. Paradoxically, it seems that only poor quality films are noticed, and high quality, professional installations go unnoticed, perceived as mere "factory-tinted glass." All our films come with a factory-backed warranty when installed by an authorized dealer.

Yes, you need to take care but it's generally common sense. While not quite as hard as glass, our films are extremely scratch-resistant and may be cleaned with some common household cleaners, non-abrasive paper towels, or cotton cleaning cloths. Caution should be exercised to prevent against using solutions that are ammonia based, and care should be taken by not using abrasive cloths or scouring pads.

Since an SPF 15 allows you to stay in the sun without burning fifteen times longer than you could if you didn't use any sunscreen, the calculation of the SPF for window film is fairly easy. The number is very large indeed. If the film product allows less than 1% UV transmission, the SPF would be about 100 or more. With 1.5% UV transmission, the SPF is 66.66. With a UV transmission of 2%, the SPF would be 50, etc... Simply divide 100 by the percentage of UV transmission. Make sure that your UV transmission number covers the whole range of UVA and UVB radiation. 
 
PLEASE NOTE: While this computation is easy to perform, it must be said that most dermatologists don't think numbers larger than about 20 are meaningful. Moreover, these SPF numbers are officially determined by actual skin testing according to an established experimental protocol. It is not permissible to make such claims about actual SPF numbers without having these skin tests performed by a qualified laboratory.
