WHAT IS A WINDOW TINT PERCENTAGE?

The Window Tint Percentage refers to visible light transmission or VLT, which is the amount of visible light that can flow through the Window Tint. Therefore, if you get a 5% tint, only 5% of visible light will pass through the window. In general, the lower the percentage amount, the darker the window tint will be.

For the type of tints you want, you can see the law of the particular state you live in and opt accordingly.
  • One of the main factors contributing to traffic accidents is distracted driving. When we talk of distraction, using a cell phone while driving may come to mind, but according to officials tinted windows are also a major cause of accidents as they can dramatically reduce your peripheral vision.

80% WINDOW TINT OR MORE

85% window tint is another highly popular option. Window tints that are 85% or below block out all UV, making them excellent for people who have sun-related health conditions. 85% tint is such a delicate color, people who don't want to go all out on a dark tint frequently choose it. However, since you receive so little protection with this, it is preferable to forgo a tint if you want to use this high of a percentage.

LIMO TINT

Limousine films, often known as limo tint, are a type of car window tint that lets just 5% of light through the window while blocking 95% of visible light. It is regarded as the market's most high-tech window tint. The interior of the car is barely visible from the outside. This is frequently used in limos, which is where the name originates. Several state laws forbid manufacturers and even drivers from selling and installing such window tints.

CALCULATING THE PERCENTAGE OF TINT

It is simple to select the appropriate tint if the windows of your car don't have any tint at all. You will need to choose carefully if your windows already have a tint. You multiply the factory tint % by the film tint percentage to get the outcome. For instance, if you add a 50% film to a window that is already 60% tinted from the manufacturer, you must multiply the two figures together to determine the outcome. For instance, 50% x 40% = 20% tint.

Visit a professional if you don't know what percentage of tint your windows currently have. They will evaluate how dark your windows are and assist you in selecting the appropriate tint to achieve your goals.

DIFFERENT COLORS OF TINTS

Window tints are available in different shades so you can choose the one you like most. These include black, blue, bronze, charcoal, gold and gray. The most popular and commonly chosen color is black as it is the most effective against UV rays and gives the passenger complete privacy.

 Blue tint also provides extra protection against the harmful rays of the sun. Those who want their vehicle to stunningly stand out go for the gold tint. Gray and charcoal add a classic touch. Having said that, while opting for a tint color make sure that it is allowed in your state. Check the local laws and if you frequently resort to interstate travel by road, make sure that the tint shade is accepted in the visited state as well before taking any decision.
