THE BENEFITS THAT XPEL PRIME WINDOW TINTING OFFERS
XPEL Prime window tint blocks 99% of the sun’s UVA & UVB rays, meaning it protects your vehicle’s plastics and upholstery from fading. These UVA & UVB rays are the harmful rays that can lead to skin cancer so protecting the a vehicle’s passengers with window tint is important. Window tinting also protects your eyes by reducing glare just as a high quality pair of sunglasses would.
XPEL Prime window tint can reject up to 88% of the solar heat. The film acts as a solar barrier between the interior and exterior of your vehicle, keeping it cool up while sitting under the hot summer sun. As a result of this outstanding solar heat rejection, your vehicle’s air conditioning unit does not need to cycle as much, saving you fuel. This means less wear and tear on the air conditioning unit,which can save you thousands of dollars in a potential air conditioning repair bill.
Window tint enhances the overall appearance of your vehicle while increasing its value. It also keeps your vehicle looking like new by decreasing the fading of the interior, a very good thing when assessing the resale value of your vehicle.
Window tint helps to deter thieves doing a smash and grab of items in your car. Not only because it is more difficult to see the items in the first place, but also because the film holds the glass in place, making it more difficult to shatter. It also protects the occupants of the vehicle from shattered glass causing injury during an accident.

AFTERCARE OF YOUR WINDOW TINT
As window tint film is a water-mounted product it may take up to 2 weeks to dry completely. During this drying period it is completely normal to see a light cloudiness in the film and/or small water bubbles.
It is paramount that you do not roll the newly tinted windows in your vehicle down for 5 days after the window tint has been installed to avoid de-lamination.
When cleaning the inside of your vehicle’s windows you can use a mild soap and water mixture with a soft cloth or micro fiber. Avoid using brushes or any cleaning products that contain abrasives or ammonia. At Goldwing Autocare we sell and recommend products for cleaning the interior of windows that have had window tint film.
