What is window tinting film and how does it work ?
Hometint Products. Window film is basically a self-adhesive polyester film that is applied to the interior surface of glass. It’s used as a “retrofit” for existing glass on automobiles, homes and commercial buildings in order to upgrade solar control and safety.
Solar radiation from the sun is divided into 3 components; visible light we can see, and infrared and ultraviolet rays which we can only feel. As solar radiation strikes a piece of glass, window film acts as a “sunscreen” to block harmful UV rays as well as regulates the levels of heat and light passing through the glass. The amount of heat and light rejected is all dependant on the type of window film selected
There are basically two types of window film – non-reflective or dyed films that primarily absorb solar energy, and reflective or metallized films that absorb as well as reflect solar energy.

Types of Tint / Film
UV Clear – a clear, invisible film blocking 99% of harmful UV rays. Great for storefronts looking to reduce interior fading and homeowners that don’t want the look of window film but demand UV protection. Hometint Products.
Frost – A semi-transparent film designed for windows where sunlight is desired, but total day and night privacy is needed. Frost is ideal for large bathroom windows, front doors, half-moon windows, and internal office & conference windows and other commercial applications. We offer a wide range of films which provide varying degrees of privacy. These films come in a veriety of colours and patterns – there is sure to be one to suit your needs.
Safety Film – While glass windows in today’s homes, offices and buildings provide a necessary function and aesthetic appeal, they can become extremely dangerous, even deadly, when shattered or broken panes transform into flying “shards” of glass. Natural hazards, accidents and crime all pose potential risks to most glass systems existing today. Protect yourself from flying glass with the added benefit of 99%UV Protection.
Security Film – There is also preventative film that can greatly reduce the risk of human injury and property damage. The durable polymer film construction and tough adhesive bonds to glass, creating a functional “safety net” that holds glass in place at impact and protects your home, office or shopfront from unwanted intruders. Security films are available in clear and tinted finishes.
NightScape – is probably our most popular film, and is ideal for 90% of homes here in South East Queensland.
As more and more people are using solar control films as part of their total window treatment, new concerns arise around interior light reflection during the evening time affecting normal outside views. Day and nighttime privacy is also an issue as homeowners are uneasy about the ability to look inside a window better than looking out.

With a unique hybrid construction-a charcoal dyed layer on top of an aluminum metallized film-NightScape will not only provide a soft glare-free view, but will also deliver strong UV ray protection and excellent heat rejection as well.
All NightScape films are protected by Johnson’s CST™ scratch resistant hardcoat.
