Automotive Car Window Tinting

The benefits of window tinting is enormous

Why You Should Tint

Visible Light Transmission

Solar Gard Films used by Sunshine Coast Windscreens reduce the percentage of visible light (daylight) that passes through glass improving comfort and working conditions. The film also increases the level of privacy and reduces excessive light transmission.

Ultraviolet (UV) Absorption

Sunshine Coast Windscreens use special absorbers that filter out up to 99% of the deadly ultraviolet (UV) rays that are linked to melanoma and cause cataracts and the fading of vehicles and buildings.

Total Heat Rejection

Solar Gard Films reduce high levels of both visible light and invisible infrared heat and improve the window film’s ability to reject solar heat. This in turn improves energy cooling efficiencies and reduces energy consumption.

Scratch Resistant Coating

Solar Gard Films are coated with a scratch resistant coating which protects the film from normal wear and tear by the natural environment. All Solar Gard Films comply to Australian Standards.

Care Instructions

Film Dry-out Time:
The mounting solution used during the installation of your Solar Gard window film may require a dry-out time. Cold or non-sunny weather conditions can lengthen the dry-out time, while warm weather and direct sun light exposure will shorten the dryout time. Small water beads and a slightly cloudy look may appear during the dryout time. If slow drying does occur, do not become alarmed. The film will dry-out.

Do not clean the film for 30 days after installation.

Window Film Care and Maintenance:
To maximise the life of the window film, please follow these instructions for proper care and maintenance.

Cleaning Instructions:

  • Always use fresh clean soft materials to wash and dry your window film surfaces.
  • Most glass cleaners will work well, although a good cleaning solution for window film is 1/2 ounce of liquid dish soap added to 1 quart of fresh water.
  • A soft cloth or a clean synthetic sponge is recommended for washing the window film followed by another clean soft cloth or soft rubber squeegee for drying.
  • To avoid scratching the film, do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges, or any cleaning materials that may have been contaminated with dirt particles, as is commonly the case when washing interior and exterior windows with the same cleaning materials.
  • Some brands of paper towels are coarse enough to put fine scratches in the film, even films with scratch resistant, protective hard coat finish. While these scratches may be too thin to be seen at the beginning, they can damage the polished look of the film over time.
