  • Always use fresh clean soft materials to wash and dry your window film surfaces.
  • Most glass cleaners will work well, although a good cleaning solution for window film is 1/2 ounce of liquid dish soap added to 1 quart of fresh water.
  • A soft cloth or a clean synthetic sponge is recommended for washing the window film followed by another clean soft cloth or soft rubber squeegee for drying.
  • To avoid scratching the film, do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges, or any cleaning materials that may have been contaminated with dirt particles, as is commonly the case when washing interior and exterior windows with the same cleaning materials.
  • Some brands of paper towels are coarse enough to put fine scratches in the film, even films with scratch resistant, protective hard coat finish. While these scratches may be too thin to be seen at the beginning, they can damage the polished look of the film over time.

    Paint Protection Film--Also known as Clear Bra--is a very durable thermoplastic urethane film that protect against rock chips, bugs, environmental damage and abrasion. Our certified technicians are trained to apply this specialized film to your car, truck, motorcycle, RV, airplane wings, and boat. The film is so clear that you hardly tell it is on.

    Much like the vinyl car bras, paint protection film protect against rock chips, bugs, small scratches, and normal day to day wear and tear. Paint protection film creates a significant advantage in that dirt and moisture doesn’t get trapped beneath them and they are practically maintenance free.

    As of the date wrote this article, 12/20/2011, Utah Law does permit individuals to tint the windows on their vehicles.   However, there are some limitations to the tint that can be installed on each window.  For safety reasons, windshields are barred from having window tint installed below the AS-1 line or 4 inches down from the top of the windshield, whichever is lower.   Some cars have an AS-1line depicted on the windshield; this shows where most individual’s vision would start being impaired by window tint.

    In addition to the regulations for tint on the windshield, the law prohibits the installation of tint on the two front windows that would allow less than 43 percent light transmittance—this is so the driver’s vision is not impaired.  If you have ever had to back up a vehicle with an extremely dark tint, you know firsthand how dark window tint can impair your vision.  Other than the Windshield and two front windows, all other windows can be as dark as you would like them.

    One related law drivers should keep in mind is that both outside rear-view mirrors must be installed on the vehicle if they choose to tint the windows behind the driver’s seat.  Please feel free to comment on this blog or email if you have any additional questions about Utah Window Tint laws.
