Re: Factory Tint - No UV or Heat Protection?

The car glass, even clear, cuts out a lot of electromagnetic radiation. If you want a broader range cut out then use a rated tint. However, most interior materials have embedded UV protectants so it is the HEAT that causes damage, not UV. So, anyone causing alarms over UV or lack of UV or whatever is simply misplacing what the problem is. Factory tint does reduce the heat so it is effective to the degree it is tinted but you can always go darker.

Re: Factory Tint - No UV or Heat Protection?

I have all my windows tinted with Llumar products. For the front windshield, I used Llumar Pinnacool and love it. I've seen some people get the sunroof tinted and will wait for this summer.

For windshield and front side windows, refer to your state's laws. Also for degree of tint for these windows if your state allows them to be tinted.

I had the Pano roof tinted and we both love it. We used a premium film called Huper Optik and does it ever make a difference in heat transmission! Take note however, many shops ask you to sign a waiver when tinting the sunroof or at least they do here in AZ.

Re: Factory Tint - No UV or Heat Protection?

I emailed Chrysler Customer Service and asked about the factory tint on the 2011 Jeep GC. Here is the reply I just received:

The tint on the rear side glass (side drop windows and quarter glass) provides a variety of functions. First and foremost it reduces the visible light transmission into the vehicle to approximately 18%.
Second, the entire UV spectrum is reduced such that less than 12% of the UV light passes through. This is 12% of a very small amount and virtually 0% transmission of UV light with wavelength less than 380 nm.
Also, this privacy glass blocks the IR (infrared) portion of the spectrum such that only 16% of the IR light passes through the glass.
This is the portion of the suns energy that contains the majority of the heat.'

Re: Factory Tint - No UV or Heat Protection?

Bob, any indication of whether this is also true for the rear hatch and panoramic sunroof glass?

Not really sure... I asked the question about "factory tinted glass" and the reply I posted above is the complete response I received and specifically only references the "side drop windows and quarter glass." I haven't been home all week, but if I recall correctly, the rear hatch has factory tint and the panoramic sunroof doesn't.

Just a guess, but it would seem the rear hatch should have the same characteristics as the sides that are factory tinted.

Good to know.... Per my earlier reply on this thread topic, it seems that window tint people want to panic people into thinking that they absolutely need post-factory tinting and that the factory tint is worthless. As I said...nonsense.

Thanks for posting the Jeep info!
