The One solar film can reduce glare, block 100% UV rays, protect furniture from fading and save your air conditioning costs. It also allows visible light to pass through. Let’s say hello to sunshine!
Things you will need:
Squeegee ( or small cardboard, VOID credit card )
※ be careful when using the knife
Follow these steps for application:
Measure the window space you plan to cover. Add 1/2 inch to 1 inch to each of the sides’ measurements, trim off the excess film with a utility knife.
Clean the glass thoroughly, making sure you get in the corners and around the edges without leaving any lint and dirt on the surface. Watch out for your fingerprint on the window glass.
As you separate the film from the liner, misting the window with suds ( soap and water mixture). The glass should also be coated with this solution before you apply the film to the glass.
After applied the film, using a small squeegee or cardboard to force out the liquid and air trapped beneath the film. Smooth out all the bubbles from the center outward so the bubbles disappear at the edges.
Wrap the squeegee with a paper towel to dry the surface.
Maintenance after installation:
Do not scratch the film surface with any hard or sharp objects such as metal or knife.
Do not apply anything to the film surface.
Do not write anything on the film.
Keep lit cigarettes or other heat sources away from the film.
* Solar film products are high-viscosity adhesives, which are not easy to apply and require professional masters to carry out the construction.
Car tinting can go to the online shopping page to find the corresponding car model and place an order. After the order is established, the serviceperson will arrange an appointment for tinting. For special cars (such as Tesla, sports cars, etc.), you can fill in the inquiry form first, so that you can arrange an appointment later.
The ratio of the solar heat gain passing through a glass unit referenced to the 3mm clear glass (defined value of 1.0). The lower the value, the less solar heat transmit through the glass, that being said, the shading ability is better. Generally, the shading coefficient of 3mm clear glass is 0.87.
What is Solar Heat Gain Coefficient SHGCterri.tang2022-06-28T15:52:54+08:00
The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) is the percent of solar energy incident on the glass that is transferred indoors both directly and indirectly through the glass. The direct gain portion is the solar energy transmittance, while the indirect is the fraction of solar energy incident on the glass that is absorbed and re-radiated or transmitted through convection indoors. The SHGC ranges from 0 to 1 as a dimensionless(explanation 1.) number. Therefore, when the glass has a lower SHGC, it can resist the solar heat entering the room, effectively reducing the energy consumption of the A/C.
(explanation 1.)Dimensionless quantities in physics are those that require no unit.
What is Visible Light Transmittance VLT (Green Building ≥ 0.5)terri.tang2022-06-28T16:00:25+08:00
Visible Light Transmittance (VLT) (green building>=0.5) describes the percentage of visible light (approximately 390 to 780 nanometers within the solar spectrum) transmitted through the glass. It is determined by the glass color and thickness. Clear glass has 75% to 92% VLT; colored glass has 14% to 85% VLT.
What is Visible Light Reflectance VLR (Green Building ≤ 0.25)terri.tang2022-06-28T16:08:55+08:00
Visible Light Reflectance (VLR) (green building<=0.25) is a ratio of visible light that is reflected from a glass building materials when illuminated by the light. The higher the VLR, the light reflectance problems could be greater.
What is Ultra-Violet Rejection UVRterri.tang2022-06-28T16:10:39+08:00
The characteristic parameters are determined for quasi-parallel, almost normal radiation incidence. For the measurements, the samples shall be irradiated by a beam whose axis is at an angle not exceeding 10° from the normal to the surface. The angle between the axis and any ray of the illuminating beam shall not exceed 5°.
What is Rainbow Effect in Window Filmsterri.tang2023-01-16T14:14:48+08:00
In Window Films Under certain lighting conditions and viewing angles, the appearance of various colored
bands on the film surface that appear to “float” over the surface as the viewer changes his point of view or
an “oil on water” appearance on the surface. Please refer to Figure 1.
The coloration is not from dyes or other color substances rather it is due to the multilayer structure of
window films. Rainbow shows as varied colors and is the result from the interference of light waves
reflected from different surfaces within the film, and changes with the angle of view. In the case of window
films, the first layer of window film is the Anti-scratch layer (layer 1), applied to our UVIR (layer 2) is the
reason to cause the rainbow effect. While the first layer –Anti-scratch layer is optically clear, it has a
slightly different refractive index than the second layer – UVIR film as shown in Figure 2. Therefore when
the light from the interior space, some of the light transmits through to the exterior of the window and
some of the light is reflected off the first layer and back into the interior space (λ1). Moreover light is
reflected off the second layer – UVIR film and back again through the first layer (λ2). Variations in the
reflected light waves across the surfaces of the film produce the Rainbow effect.
Types of interior light sources can have a dramatic effect on the “rainbow appearance. Fluorescent lights,
compact fluorescent bulbs, and especially new energy-efficient “T8” lamps appear the generate the worst
There are a few things that can be done to reduce or eliminate this effect and following summary remarks,
followed by suggestions to mitigate the problem:
1. “Rainbow” can be seen on most window films if looked at closely under certain lighting conditions, even
2. It is impossible to avoid rainbow effects completely with most films because it is a physical effect not
completely controllable by manufacturing processes.
3. iridescence can be amplified under certain viewing conditions, such as with darker external backgrounds
like nighttime and with sloped glass
SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE THE RAINBOW EFFECTS:
1. Reducing the contrast between internal and external background color (Figure 3) – the rainbow effect is
2. To use a full spectrum light source like incandescent lighting or full spectrum LED lighting. Rainbow effect
is not a sign of product failure or deterioration.
