In our sunny tropics, sunshine is abundant throughout the year. With climate change and the thinning of our ozone layer, harmful radiation from our Sun poses harmful effects on our personal well-being.

Most of us spend a considerable amount of time travelling and it is important to find ways to protect ourselves from solar radiation.

Solar films have been introduced to motorcars for a while and with improving product knowledge, solar films have become a functional product more than fashion.

Let’s face it, as many benefits a motorcar brings to humanity, the steel, aluminum, and carbon fibre boxes are a mini-green house. Solar energy penetrates the windscreens and windows to reach the cabin. Oh the optional sunroof you've installed counts as well.

Solar films deflect infra-red heat, ultraviolet rays besides reducing glare from bright sunlight, which improves visibility. A common misconceptions about solar film is - the darker the film, the better protection from radiation. Erm, nope. Did you know poor construction materials may lead to discoloration of the film, hence giving it a darker shade?

Advantages of using a solar film

Solar films, protect the car occupants from the Sun's harmful UV rays. Taking Infratint solar films for example, which is fabricated using a ‘sputtering’ process.

Basically during fabrication, positive ions are compacted onto a thin polyester film – so that during application, the negative ions on glass panel will be evenly spread out. This concept is also used by automakers when painting your cars for a smooth and even finish. Infratint’s sputtering technique, offers up to 99.6% UV rays rejection.

Solar films reduces your car’s cabin temperatures. This eases the strain on the air-conditioning unit, resulting in overall reduced fuel consumption and savings. Infratint solar films offer 99% rejection of infra-red radiation (IRR) which minimises the Sun's glare while driving.

Solar films also provide occupants with privacy. Infratint’s solar films are available with tinted options that are compliant with LTA’s regulations. As such occupants can enjoy a comfortable ride with more privacy.
