Automotive Tinting Film Market -Snapshot
Automotive tinting film is a thin laminate film that can be installed to the interior or exterior of glass surfaces in automobiles and boats and also to the interior or exterior of glass in homes and buildings. It is usually made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family, due to its clarity, tensile strength, dimensional stability, and ability to accept a variety of surface-applied or embedded treatments.
Automotive tinting films are generically categorized by their construction components (dyed, pigmented, metallized, ceramic or nano), by their intended use (automotive, marine or architectural), by substrate type (glass or polycarbonate), and/or by their technical performance (privacy, solar control, safety and security).
There are many different grades, shades, colors, and thicknesses of available automotive tinting films built to offer solutions to a variety of challenges. Automotive tinting films are a retrofit upgrade for existing glass that can be used to address problems inherent to glazing, including heat and glare reduction, thermal insulation, UV filtration, safety and security, privacy, decoration, signage and branding.
Advice on the appropriate selection of film for the glass is vital to ensure that the glass does not crack as a result of thermal stress. However, it is possible that a pane of glass may break subsequent to the application of an appropriate film, because the pane has been damaged during the glazing of the window, or as a result of movement of the building or other physical stresses that are not apparent at the time of the application of the film.
