Clear Rock Chip Protective Films

In addition to window tinting, many may consider applying a clear protective film to their vehicle to protect against rock chips or small road debris. These films are often applied to the front bumper and portions of the hood and fenders. Some higher-end, or luxury vehicles are sold from the dealer with similar films already applied. But, you don't have to pay high-end car prices to give your vehicle high quality protection.

Facts about Window Tinting

Automotive window tinting film is made up of extruded polyester that is formulated to produce a range of colors and varying densities specifically for cars and trucks. The film incorporates a scratch resistant coating and is installed using a pressure sensitive adhesive application system that is adapted to almost any required width.

Window tinting reduces a vehicle’s temperature by absorbing heat at the surface of the glass and drawing it across the windows when a vehicle is in motion. Ultraviolet filters are added during the manufacturing of window tinting film that can block up to 98% of harmful UV rays. The exceptional durability of the polyester film combined with the high quality bonding adhesive used in the application, provides enough strength to hold broken pieces of automotive glass together to increases safety.

Laws concerning window tinting vary by state. Though many window tinting companies will apply tinting in almost every color in any darkness, or opacity, it may not be street legal. It is important to know what is legal for where you live and most commonly drive. For those who live and drive in Washington, the best place to most upto-date information see the Washington State Legislature website, specifically Chapter 46.37.
