How does automotive window film work?

It’s what’s inside that counts.

Automotive window film is a sheet of strong polyester laminate treated in a highly engineered variety of ways to improve the look and performance of existing windows. One side has a scratch-resistant coating and the other has an adhesive that bonds to the glass window.

Solar control films for auto glass work by selectively controlling the passage of the sun’s radiant energy into a vehicle, reducing cabin temperatures, enhancing outward visibility by reducing harsh glare, and nearly eliminating the damaging and dangerous effects of ultraviolet light on upholstery and our skin and eyes.

Because the sun’s energy is composed of ultraviolet light, visible light, and near infrared radiation, our high-tech films with high optical clarity have been constructed to independently regulate the passage of these three bands of energy to suit the different needs of consumers. You can choose films that:

  •     filter out only ultraviolet (UV) rays
  •     reduce visible light to control glare and improve a car’s appearance
  •     block both UV and most solar infrared to reduce heat without changing the appearance of the glass
