How it works

Starting with Tint Shade

The shading ranges from %5 - %70

%5 being the darkest. The difference between shades are look and privacy. At Vader Window Tinting we always look to satisfying our customers needs. We advise you of the legal limits and let you choose what you like. We charge a flat rate per vehicle depending on type of film you choose. We do not charge per shade.

Total Solar Energy Rejection

This is how much heat the film will prohibit from entering the vehicle through the windows. This is also measured in percentage form. 

Infrared (IR) and Ultraviolet (UV) Rejection

This refers to how much of the Sun’s harmful rays are blocked by window film. IR/UV rejection is not the same as heat rejection, but they are similar. Many higher line tints have a higher IR/UV rejection, which helps preserve the vehicle’s interior, as well as its occupants, better than film with a lower IR/UV rejection percentage.

High Performance Film

 
 

High Performance film is usually a hybrid of dyed construction and metal flake technology. For many years, metallic film was considered a step up from the standard, in both performance and price. The metal flake construction usually has a higher Total Solar Energy Rejection and IR/UV rejection percentage than dyed construction film, and also has a shinier, more metallic appearance than standard dyed construction film. This film can be tricky to use on some newer vehicles because sometimes the metal construction interfere with on-board computer/navigation systems, and other electronic devices. This is a film that sometime comes with a limited lifetime no fade guarantee and is generally considered more fade resistant than standard dyed construction film. Users can usually expect between 5-7 years optimal usage from this film before it might begin to fade.
