Top Trends in Window Tint Technology – What to Know

Window tints have always been an essential element for automotive owners as well as for residential or commercial properties. Its origin story rooted from aesthetic purposes as it gave vehicles a sleek look, but through the years, technology has also included window tints in its evolution.

On that note, it has developed features that became crucial to any vehicle or property as it regulates the car or structure’s temperature. In addition to reducing the detrimental effects of the sun’s rays, it also lessened the strain it put on an interior’s air conditioning system, which overall saves on gas or energy.

Furthermore, it also preserved the interior fabrics and surfaces of a car or house as the blocked UV rays scaled-down the furniture’s tendency to fade in colour. However, the potential for window tints doesn’t have to stop there. Being one of the top after-market products in the industry, the technology built into it has only improved over the years and now includes the following new trends:

 

Trend #1: Smart Film Technology

It seems that almost anything can be linked and controlled by your smartphone, and this recent development in window film technology allows window tints to be manipulated using a smartphone app. This is a high-tech film that can be switched from clear to opaque with only a single click of a button, allowing people to have full control on privacy and the window tint’s energy-saving features. On that note, the smart window film works by using a combination of electro-chromatic, suspended particle, and liquid-crystal technologies. These are separated by a conductive layer, which moves ions from one side to the other using a controllable voltage. This allows the user to either block light or let it through, depending on the current demands of a particular situation.

 

Trend #2: Photovoltaic (PV) Technology

PV technology uses daylight as a source of electricity similar to how solar panels work, which allows glass surfaces from vehicles or properties to be used as power-generating panels. This is indeed an advanced feature for window tints, which is why the initial installation can be costly, but its ability to convert daylight into energy means that your car or home will be able to save on electricity bills. In retrospect, having a PV technology installed into your window film is an investment that promises to be cost-efficient in the long run.

 

Trend #3: Photochromic Glass

This technology allows glass surfaces to automatically darken once exposed to sunlight. It’s potential is already widely recognized as many vehicles and commercial buildings have installed photochromic glass, though the drawback is that it creates a certain imbalance. Since it’s switch function is only limited to blocking off sunlight, it can make an HVAC system work twice as hard to regulate the interior temperatures to keep its occupants comfortable.

 

Trend #4: Intelligent Vehicle Glass

This technology uses special films that are inserted into the glass to control its transparency using electric control signals. This means that the windows can be darkened with a single touch of a button, which works similarly with smart film technology. The difference is that you have control over individual windows, as well as have the capacity to control the level of brightness or dimness, depending on the preference of the passengers or occupants of a building. Due to its high costs, however, this technology is currently used by high-end vehicles or large-scale companies only.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
