This press release from SolarGard caught my eye today. It was titled SolarGard Releases Nanotech-based Window Film for Cars that Blocks 99% of UV Rays. Although this sounds impressive, does it really mean that much?
What some people do not know is that most quality window films block 95+% of UV rays. Maybe the difference is performance?
It is stated that the SolarGard Ultra film can block up to half of solar energy. The same can be said about SolarGard’s line of HP car tint as well.
Finally, it is not mentioned is that the SolarGard Ultra product costs 2-3 times the price of conventional film.
So is nano-tech window film worth the price?
TintCenter recommends against using nanotech for car tint, unless your state tint laws or personal preference require the tint to be very light rather than dark.
