Default Car Suncontrol films

Hey guys,
I sell sun control films for a living. My opinion, V cool is good, 3M gives you a better option. The generation of sun control films goes like this

1st gen - pigment films. Dark films, which end up as violet coloured films in 2 years.
2nd gen - Metal coated films, which reflect your IR/Visible light (in the propotion u want, u might have to choose the film)
3rd gen - Nano tech. Films with no metal or pigments. Selectively reflect IR upto 90%. The film lets 70% of ur visible light, cuts off IR only.

apart from the IR reject properties, also note the adhesive type. Most cheap films peel off, coz when ur adhesive is exposed to UV, the adhesive looses its strength. Check out with any 3M film, the UV rejection is mentioned.You might have seen window films in buildings n cars with air pockets.

Go in for 3M Crystaline 70 for your windshield and just in case ur city has banned sun control for cars, go in with Cr70 for the entire car. You might even want to try the performance with a BTU meter or an IR meter. Your cars mileage would increase with these films installed by reducing AC working time.

please also send me the details for installing authentic sun films for Tata Safari. Further the idea with the while towel seat covers was excellent. My truck would though will be white (artic white) so will have to think of some other novel way of dealing with cops.

What are the types of V-Kool films available? I would like to reduce IR, but don't want to give the cops any excuse for fining me . . . Does V Kool have very clear films that will only cut out the IR rays or will it come with tints only?

Call Riyaz @ 98863 63207 in Bangalore. He's the CMD of Infra Kool solutions and they are the authorized distributors for v-kool in Bangalore.

Expect somewhere around 9k+ as the spark has a big windscreen. You should get 5% discount with bill and 10% otherwise if you play your cards right. :-)

Hi Guys,

I read on Xenos website (Xenos Technologies Ltd.) that they are providing Solar Gard and Armorcoat sunfilms of Bekaert Speciality Films (BSF) brand. They are giving 10year warranty. And they do have Front Windshield film as well.

Did anybody in TBHP used these film? Can somebody provide feedback on them?

Thanks

yes i have an answer here,
the biggest glass in a car can be the front wind shield.and the hottest time is afternoon.afternoon the fact is that the front windshield is the most exposed glass of your car and the side and rear glass are rarely exposed as they are near vertical,and the front glass is at an angle.so putting a sunfilm in the front glass can actually reduce heat inside.more over the heat maybe due to overheating of the dash stearing and the front seats.this is avoided to a certain extend if you sunfilm the front glass.

Yeah, if it is dark. We are talking about the transparent films made specially for the windshield. I think 70% visibility is legal in most cities.

There are 2 categories here: 1. Front windscreen 2. Rest of the greenhouse.

I have seen some cars with the dark tints intended for side windows, pasted inside-out on the front windscreen. This is illegal.

The other type is a clear see-thru film specifically meant for the front windscreen. The main job of this is to block out most of the heat/UV coming in thru the front windscreen. This is legal.

Hi Guys ! Great thread and great site. I am getting my red SX4 delivered tomorrow or monday. The Maruti sales guy is pushing hard for the Garware sunfilm. From this thread I understand that V-COOL or Llumar are the brands to go for.
Some questions here -
1) How bad is this Garware film? Is it really worth going for the V-COOL or Llumar.
2) Which is a good place in Kolkata to get this job done from ?

I have AIR 75 from Lumar on my swift. Visibility is great and heat load is less. Do check out other options also. I was not comfortable with Garware, hence choose this option
