Have you ever checked out a luxury vehicle and inside you saw the way the sun damaged the leather interior? The sun can easily damage the leather interior of a vehicle within a few years. Taking a proactive approach to protecting leather interiors with window tinting for your vehicle is going to keep it leather looking new, and protect the resale value of your vehicle down the road. Whether you have genuine or blended leather, the sun’s harmful UV rays are what breaks down the leather that can cause unsightly fading and cracking. WHICH TYPE OF WINDOW TINT IS BEST FOR UV PROTECTION AND YOUR LEATHER INTERIOR? For the most part, vehicles that receive tint at the factory are in the 20% range. How is window tint measured? It’s measured in the percentage of light that the tint lets pass through into the vehicle. So, 20% film is blocking 80% of the sunlight that it is exposed to. Once you’ve decided on your tint percentage you need for your vehicle, the next question is what type of window tint do you want to put on the windows. Sabulski Window Tinting, which services Davie County, Davie County, North Carolina, Winston-Salem, Clemmons, Lexington, Mocksville and beyond, has a couple of different choices when it comes to this.
- Dyed film. Dyed film is affordable but not quite as durable as ceramic film. It’s made from dye, polyethylene, and other UV blockers.
- Ceramic Tint. This is a great way to protect you and your car from those harmful UV rays, and can reduce them by 80-98% and help with excessive heat. It’s designed from layers of microscopic particles of titanium nitride and film.
