The Factory Glass Tint Probably Doesn’t Protect You or Your Interior From UV Rays…

April 26th, 2012

A common misconception with the purchase of a new car is that the “tinted” windows will provide you and your cars interior from damaging UV rays.  This isn’t always the case.  Most car manufacturers install what is known as ” privacy glass “… this will not provide you with UV protection or even heat rejection.  This glass is typically dyed glass and provides only privacy.  Solar glass is a step up from clear automotive glass and has visible light transmission (VLT) varying from as low as the federal limit of 70% VLT up to 88% VLT (which is clear auto glass). Most automotive solar glass range 74-84% these days with UV rejection not much over 40% unless it is factory privacy glass, which has UV rejection as high as the 60 percentile range.
