Re: Those with 35% front tint

I just had mine tinted 20% last week. Pretty exact match front to back which I prefer over having lighter tint in the front but I guess that's personal preference...

Re: Those with 35% front tint

35% on front door glass, legal in Wash. State. , along with 20% for sun strip on windshield. staying legal. However I had the shop do 5% limo over the rear quarter glass in very back, this blacked out the storage area nicely. worked great.

Re: Those with 35% front tint

I just got mine tinted as well, but I was told the tint does not give you UV protection. there is a different application for UV, that will truly keep the Sun and the heat out. I don't have any experience nor knowledge on this. does anybody here know anyting about doing a UV protection for the window?

Re: Those with 35% front tint

My window tint from Huper Optik blocks 99% of the UV rays. I wanted to be sure I was doing all I could to protect that nice New Saddle interior.

To the best of my knowledge most auto window tints do block UV rays, though. Did the installer tell you this or someone else? I'd look online at the tint manufacturer's website and see the specs they post.

I'm pretty sure all 3M tint film blocks 99% of UV. I got their 'color stable' film and it blocks 99% of UV

Re: Those with 35% front tint

I don't know of a tool or test for UV penetration. But you should be able to pull this information from the vendor's website.


FWIW, I've got 20% on my fronts and wish that I had the guts to do 35% on the windshield. But I think that would make me a bit too well-known by the local traffic enforcers.
