What Is Solar Tinted Glass On Cars? 

Window tinting comes with many rules and regulations that have to be followed regarding where you can darken, where you can’t, and the level of protection on offer. Right? Actually, today’s latest technology does away with all of this. Because there’s a new kid on the block that offers superior solar protection without obstructing the view whatsoever.

What is this magic, we hear you cry? Well, it’s known as solar tinted glass and is something that many top-end vehicle manufacturers are incorporating into their highest-level cars.

Read on to discover everything you need to know about the latest solar tinted glass that, while not yet mainstream, will no doubt one day become something that we all aspire to have in our cars.

Solar Tinted Glass: How the latest tech has changed what you can and can’t do

Solar tinted glass—the pros 

Solar tinted glass is, in short, a type of window that has solar tinting materials built into the windowpane itself. It blocks UV rays, reduces glare, and, miraculously, is virtually crystal clear.

Where can I sign up? Yep, we hear you… After all, imagine not having to worry about the strict tinting laws that change every time you cross a state line.  However, solar tinted glass isn’t something that can be added retrospectively, something that leads us neatly onto the ‘cons’ of solar tinted glass.

Solar tinted glass—the cons

While solar tinted glass is, we have to say, a pretty awesome product, because the properties are built into the car itself, then it’s only available if you choose the option on a car you purchase from new. That’s a pretty big con, don’t you think.

But fear not, because there is an alternative in the form of technologically advanced window tint.

Solar tinted glass vs. solar window tint

Window tint used to be something that came in restricted options. It often interrupted vital wireless transmissions because metallic elements were used to reflect UV rays and heat. It could be too light or too dark, and there was no way it could adapt to the ambient conditions.

But that was then, and this is now. Today’s advanced technology has brought us a product totally fit for purpose, the Spectra Photosync that has a solar adaptive coating that responds to sunlight. Once Mother Nature’s shining glory directs her rays towards the earth, this clever solar window tint increases its efforts to reject the harmful UV rays. It can effectively block both UVA and UVB rays by up to 99.5%, not to mention infrared light by up to 98.5%.

That’s pretty amazing tech, we think you’ll agree.

If that’s not enough, the product comes with a lifetime warranty against defects.

Now, we know this doesn’t completely match the clarity of solar tinted glass. However, for those who can’t shell out for a brand-new set of wheels with this as standard, it’s a pretty good alternative.
