Get all your require tools at www.uv400.com.

Tip: Tinted films are normally installed on the interior surface – the side you can touch inside your home. You may choose to install on the exterior surface, but be prepared for rapid film degradation.

Tutorial (Install Tinted):

Step 1: Measure the window:

Measure your window height and width.

Step 2: Cut the film:

Cut the window film about 1” larger than the size of your window. E.g. If your window dimensions are 30″ x 40″, cut the film to 31″ x 41″.

Step 3: Clean the window:

Spray the soapy cleaning solution onto the window and clean using the scraper. Ensure that the scraper and window remain wet to prevent scratching the glass. Pay special attention to the edges of the window. Avoid getting too much solution onto the frame to minimize dirt and other foreign matter from being flushed onto the glass. Spray the window again and clean all the water from the glass using squeegee. Now, use a dry and clean towel around the edges of the window to ensure dirty water does not contaminate the film during installation.

Step 4: Prepare the film:

Thoroughly spray the solution onto the application surface of the window. The solution here, acts as a lubricant for the film. Remove the release liner or film backing from the film and thoroughly spray the adhesive side of the film as well. This procedure reduces any static electricity caused by the liner removal, lessens contamination, and prevents the film from adhering to itself.

The liner can remove by attaching two pieces of sticky tape at one corner of both surfaces of the film. Press the two pieces of tape firmly together, and then pull them apart to help start the liner removal process. Wet your hands with the solution before handling the film to avoid leaving any fingerprints on the adhesive.

Step 5: Apply the film:

Keeping both the film and window wet, place the adhesive side of the film onto the glass. Start at the left and right top, and then allow the film to gently lie down onto the glass. You will still be able to slide the film around and position it correctly so long as the window and film are thoroughly wet.

Spray the entire non-adhesive surface of the film facing you with the soapy solution to prevent squeegee drag. Using the squeegee, start to remove as much water or soapy solution as possible. To do this, first squeegee horizontally across 2” from the top to set the film. Second, from the center, squeegee downward vertically of the film. Continue to squeegee horizontally from the center to the edges, pushing the water or soapy solution out from under the film. Overlap the squeegee strokes to maximize water removal.

Step 6: Trim or cut the film:

Run a trim guide or plastic card along the edge of the film to momentarily set the film against the glass and frame. Place the retractable knife between the trim guide and the edge to begin trimming. Always ensure that the blade on the retractable knife is sharp. After trimming, squeegee the film once more following the same techniques as the previous step.

Step 7: Dry the edges and finish

Wrap the trim guide or plastic card with a soft, lint free cloth. Lightly wipe down or gently blot the edges to remove excess water. Leave the film to completely cure. Curing time will vary depending on type of film, effectiveness of water removal and numerous other factors. Avoid using any abrasive material for cleaning as it will scratch or damage the film.

If air pockets appear or remain, rewet the surface of the film facing you and squeegee again.

Leave your window to cure …

You are done!

The price and cost of car window tinting depend on what you want. It varies largely. You can find very cheap tinting if you are not worried about the quality.

UV400 Window Film Technology

What is UV (Ultraviolet) light ?

Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) mainly comes from the Sun. There are some others man made sources like lamps and tools (welding tools) can produce UV radiation. The Sun is the primary source of UV radiation. UV is divided into 4 different categories based on wavelength:

  • UVt-Max : Wavelengths (380-400 nm), Ozone layer can not block this wavelengths. Most dangerous for human body and (living and Nonliving) every things. Causes of skin cancer, skin aging, eye damage. **Normal film can not block UV t-Max. Only UV400 window film can block this wavelengths.
  • UVA :  Wavelengths (315-380 nm) Ozone layer can not block this wavelengths. Most of us are exposed to large amounts of UVA throughout our lifetime. UVA, which penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB and UVC, has long been known to play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging).
  • UVB :  Wavelengths (280-315 nm) are slightly affected by ozone levels. Decreases in stratospheric ozone mean that more UVB radiation can reach the earth’s surface, causing sunburns, snow blindness, immune suppression, and a variety of skin problems including skin cancer and premature aging.
  • UVC :  Wavelengths (100-280 nm) are very strongly affected by ozone levels, so that the levels of UVC radiation reaching the earth’s surface are relatively small.

 

What is UV400?

UV400 is a form of ultraviolet radiation protection associated with Window Tinted Film. UV400 protection is considered to provide 100% protection against harmful ultraviolet rays, including UVt-Max, UVA, UVB and UVC. It is called UV400, because it blocks all the rays of light up to a wavelength of 400 nanometers. UV400 has a higher level of protection than other all types of window tinted film.

UV400 Window Film, can give all the tinting facilities and protections like other window films {Varies types color, 5% to 75% visible light (VLT), up to 95% infrared rejection (IR), High solar heat rejection}. But other films can not give 100% harmful UV protection like UV400 window film.
