Window Tinting Film
Knowing what film to choose can sometimes be confusing. First think about what benefit you want most from your film and then prioritize those benefits. The benefits of window film include glare reduction, heat protection, fade protection, U.V. protection, safety, aesthetics, privacy, and to "go green". Films generally start with a polyester layer to which other substrates are added to affect specific characteristics of the finished product.
