Is there any lifespan for tint? My v-kool like not so kool anymore after 8years. >.<
Any cheap and legal tint to recomend?
*
Yes, of course every product have their life span. Its depends on various reason

1. How you take care of it
2. How often you park your car under hot sun
3. How often you use the car
4. How ofter you wind up and down the windows

Basically in my opinion, you are paying RM2000 ++ for V-Kool and it last for 8 years
This is worthy investment tongue.gif

If you want cheap, get it from Groupon or Dealmates but the quality is just below average.
JPJ only allowed >70% VLT for FWS, >50% VLT for side and BWS. Thats consider as legal tint.

Need some advice here. Thanks.

1. Is there any big difference between security film of 5mil and 7mil?
2. Does thicker security film affect the power window's life span?
*
According to IWFA, Safety film ranges in thickness 4 mils to upwards of 21 mils and thicker. Somehow, for automobile window use is recommend between 4mil to 6mil thickness. Window film above 6mil may cause disrupt to your power window in 1-2 years time. Some car manufacturer already facing this problem few years ago and only experience shop will aware of this issue.

However we find a lot of shop offering 4-5mil thickness safety film to customer, but they tell the customer is 6-8mil. Guys, thicker safety film is not the selling point, laboratory on physical performance of safety film is the selling point.

In theory, 7mil thickness film provides slightly better smash resistance compare to 5mil, infact it is not much different in safety performance and costing. In Malaysia, safety film come with solar control performance. The different of price is normally due to different heat rejection. According to Raytech report, the metal/ ceramic coating on the film for heat rejection performance is so expensive in USA, on the other hand, the costing for the thickness of the film between 4-7mil is about the same.

How come a lot of brands offer VLT <60% only and still JPJ compliant?
A lot of cars come with factory glass that has about 75% VLT already. If tint side window with 60% VLT tint also will become illegal right? 0.75 * 0.6 = 0.45 which is less than 50% VLT allowed by JPJ.

So far based on my survey only 3M can offer 66% VLT security tint for side windows and 68%% VLT for back wind shield, with good IRR.

Front wind shield totally cannot tint, any tint found on the market will it <70% VLT.

Edit: Just found out VKOOL also has tint similar to 3M but only the top range ones.

After following and reading this thread since V1 Pg. 60 onwards. My 2 cents on top 3 BEST Tint in No particular order.

1) Huper Optik C70 front and Back and C40 side

2) Raytech Centurion 4 mil OR 6 mil.
Budget Alternative CS85 5 mil. OR CS75 4 mil.
- 7 years warranty is a Bonus. They have Complete range to suit your budget.

3) 3M Nano 70S with Crystalline 70 front.

OTHER Brand/tint?
Proceed with caution. Avoid Groupon/Webuy/Ilovediscounts tints as they have Hidden costs or they will MAKE you upgrade for better quality tint. One customer ended up paying RM688 instead of RM288 cause is D-segment car and sweet-talked to upgrade to Higher quality IRR tint). Good thing no cheap.

These above 3's ENDORSED and Highly recommended by my Customers. (I sell new cars). V-kool standard dropped and COST very high. Llumar is Good but MANY Imitations.

I understand VKool cost very high as well. One of the reason most SA do not promote not due to low standard of our film. It just that the commission margin for them is low tongue.gif

Again, we normally cover JPJ if our film VLT is within their rules.
The only troublesome is the PUSPAKOM

My SA told me that latest Vkool Elite now comes with security feature too, other than heat rejection. This is the "latest" version of Vkool Elite. Anyone can confirm if this is true?

Thanks for any response.
