How much U.V. protection will solar film provide?
In both automotive and architectural applications, solar films will reduce harmful ultraviolet rays by up to 99 percent. Many films will also reduce glare by over 90 percent and solar heat gain by up to 80 percent.
Will window film distort my vision ?
Professionally installed films by Comfort Window Tinting are virtually undetectable. There is a curing period after installation, however the clarity after this short time is expected to be optically clear. Most architectural films are bonded to the glass using a special mounting adhesive called “CDF”, meaning “clear, and distortion free”. Most users will agree that optimum visual acuity is often increased with our films because glare is reduced, greatly reducing eyestrain.
I often see purple bubbling window film on cars. Will film do this over time?
Purple bubbling film is a sign of very poor quality window film, where the mounting adhesive and dye components have broken down. Films by Comfort Window Tinting are warranted against this. Our window films use more advanced and stable dye chemicals and / or permanant metal layers that do not discolour over time. Paradoxically it seems that only poor quality films are noticed, and high quality professional installations go unnoticed, perceived as “factory tinted glass”. All Comfort Window Tinting automotive films come with a factory backed lifetime warranty.
Do window films require special care or cleaning?
Yes,you need to take care but it is generally common sence. While not quite as hard as glass, our films are extremly scratch resistant and may be cleaned with some common household cleaners. Non- abrasive paper towels, or cotton cleaning cloths. Caution should be exercised against using solutions that are ammonia based, and care should be taken by not using abrasive cloths or scouring pads.
