1.How much solar and UV protection will window film provide?
ZEO Films solar protection films can effectively block 99% of harmful UV rays (near infrared) and reject up to 82% of solar heat gain (far infrared, felt as heat but not visible) depending upon the specific film chosen. ZEO Films also reduces glare rays from windows by up to 95%. Find our products specification to know more.
2.What would be sun protection factor (SPF) be for window film?
Film that allows 1% UV transmission would have an SPF of 100 at 1.5% UV transmission, the SPF would be approximately 66.66 and with a UV transmission of 2%, the SPF would be 50 (Calculation must include full range of UVA and UVB radiation 290-400 nanometers*IWFA education guide). Sun protection factor numbers are officially determined according to established testing protocols. No claims can be made about actual SPF numbers without having these tests performed by a qualified laboratory..
3.How is the film applied on glass?
Window films have adhesive on one side that is covered with liner. Removing the liner exposes the adhesive, which can be activated by spraying a soap solution on it. It is then affixed on the inside of the glass and the excess water squeezed out with the help of a squeegee.
4.How long does it take to install on a car?
An experienced professional window film technician will usually take anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 hours to tint a vehicle.
5.Is automotive window film installed on the interior or exterior of the glass?
Window film is always applied to the inside of the automotive glass. The outside of the window is used to cut-out the pattern.
6.Can I install window film by myself?
Professional installation requires skill and experience as well as a closed clean environment to avoid dust and other impurities. The techniques and proper tools for installation are not found easily in supermarket or other public stores. So strongly advise to tint your car by well trained installers at professional tint shop.
7.How long will the window film last?
In general, most window films are replaced not because they stop working, but because of surface damage. ZEO Films’ tough scratch resistant hard coating helps to protect the film from day-to-day wear and tear. However, the life of the film will be extended with careful cleaning, using mild soap and water and a soft cloth.
8.How is window film better than tinted glass?
Not only does applying film on common glass work out much cheaper, it has many other advantages as well. It has superior heat rejection properties, stops harmful UV rays (up to 99%) and offers protection from flying splinters if the glass breaks. Hence it’s far superior to tinted glass.
9.Will window film kill my house plants?
No, ZEO’s solar control window films will not harm your house plants or anything else on the interior of your home. As a matter of fact, our film will help protect your flooring and furnishings from fading caused by exposure to UV rays and solar heat.
10.Can automotive film be put on a home or building?
No. The glass used in a vehicle is not the same as glass used on a property. There are major differences in how automotive and flat glass films are constructed. Automotive films are meant to absorb energy, that is why the windows get very hot and become heat radiators when a car is parked. As the vehicle drives down the road heat is pulled from the glass through a process known as convection. Buildings on the other hand are stationary and using automotive film could make the glass absorb too much heat, leading to thermal fractures and breakage. Flat glass films purge heat by reflecting energy preventing the energy/heat from being absorbed and actively reducing it.
