Howdy, ive been wondering since ive been seeing some colored tints like gold,green and blue-ish that worn on prestige cars like BMW, Merc and Porsche. What this colored tint films actually do beside being colorish?
Anti-theft? Extra UV protection? or simply for style purpose only?

Hi bro,

Sometimes, people love to be colorful and more reflective for privacy purpose.
Nowadays, everybody looking for safety + solar film for their car as the price is almost the same.

I can recommend Raytech Centurion 4mil to you.

- 95% IR Rejection and 62% TSER
- 99.9% UV protection.
- Natural Black color, non-reflective.
- Safety film 4mil can support up to 136lb impact.
- Certified by ANSI - America National Standard Institute.
- GPS and Smartag Friendly

Hi guys, I just got my car tinted today. But there's too many small bubbles on the driver's door window.. I asked the guy in the shop about it and he said its normal and it will go away after 1-2 weeks

My question is, is this normal?? Will all the small bubbles go away?? rclxub.gif  rclxub.gif
My concern is because the other 3 windows + the back window is perfectly done, and there's no or very little bubbles..

Can anybody here confirm me that the bubbles will go away after 1 week??
*
Normally If the small bubbles can not go away within 3-4 days, you just drive the car back to the tinting shop request for warranty claim.
I think they will do for you.

Let's say I already have tint, and I bought some security film 4mil from USA.

Is it possible to combine? Anyone did that before? will it hinder the windows
*
No, you can not combine the film in this way, you will lose the safety function. The safety film is come with special adhesive to strong hold on the glass. The first layer must be safety film.

Senario 1 :
Glass | (1) Solar Film | (2) Safety Film = No safety function

Senario 2 :
Glass | (1) Safety Film | (2) Solar Film = Got safety function.

By the way, safety film is not suitable to tint for front and rear windscreen. if you think your existing film is good, what you need to do is just change the all side windows to safety film, remain the front and rear windscreen film.

Anyone know the best  security film + dark solar film ?

Which brand is better as well ?

I am looking for the darkest certified and will not get stop by traffic police

is it 50% or 40% ? how bout security film ? 3mil or 4mil or 5mil ?

I know that some companies offer you warranty as in if you are caught by police , you can claim from them but seriously i do not have that time to do that like i own a rich company or someething.

My friend had dark and not certified films and most of time get caught at KL highway to JB almost everytime

unless you are a VIP of some company or something

I saw the boss of  lavender bread 's car 100% black and security film rated more than 6mil i think , it is also bullet proof stated on the corner sleep.gif
*
To compliant with JPJ rules.

Front Windscreen : VLT > 70%
The rest of windows : VLT >50%

The darkest tint you can choose is VLT : 55%, after install on your window glass, I think the VLT will become 50%-52%.
Meaning is not dark at all.

next question, i think my existing tint is dark, around VLT : 55%.
i don't know if it's me or what..
i feel the weather is killing me lately..

my tint is just less than a year old..
i'm thinking of overlaying them with another, higher protection etc.

possible?
*
Bro, why not you keep the front and back windscreen, change the 4 side windows to safety with high heat rejection.
If you feel is hot if existing film. Chang the front windscreen film also.

Another idea is tint 2nd layer solar film on top of existing film. But both product warranty will void.

I am thinking have my car install with carbon fiber stickers as well
Is security tint safe ?

I know it is hard to break glass on the outside and what if man trap in a car and want to get out ?[U]

Raytech is only specialist in window tinting at the moment. I think the company may input other product like paint protection or sticker in future. However it is not available now.

About the safety film, there is more things to explain.
1. The main purpose for safety film is delaying break in time maybe about 30 second for you to escape if somebody trying to break your glass.
2. The glass still will be broken when the break strength above 120lb, meaning people still can safety you from outside.
3. Safety film will hold the glass strong to prevent shattered glass flying and injure you.
4. If you want to escape from inside the car. You need special technique to break the glass. watch and learn :

After reading whole day. I would like to share my thought with those who are inexperience as me, and looking for good tint + security + JPJ less kacau + reasonable. Don't shoot me too harsh. just my thought ok.

1. Don't go for ayam brand. You will regret.
* Brand that unable to tell you the name of the USA manufacturer and it is not stated in their website.
* No Recognition from their manufacturer.


2. Most recommended: Huper Optik (HO), VKOOL & 3m
- You may include Raytech and Llumar as it is International Brand too.

3. Security film, for eg: 4 mil, just merely thicker. In general: It takes ~ 8 seconds to break your window with 4 mil tint, while normal tint takes ~ 4. seconds.(subject to skill and tool)
* The more accurate explanation is 4mil can support up to 120lbs strength impact.
* A good safety film should stand at least 30 second to buy enough time for escaping.
* In this issue, USA product is very important. Product from Korea is very poor on its safety although it is thick.
* Raytech safety film is certified by ANSI (America National Standard Institute) and we provide live demo in many place.


5. Some security film might not have good TSER compare to normal film. So you have to judge you want better heat rejection or want a few more seconds before someone break your car windows.
* This statement in not true now.
* Product like Raytech Centurion 6mil, Centurion 4mil, 3M Nano 70 & Nano 40 (3mil), V-kool Secure (8mil), Llumar Palladium(9mil) come with high TSER. Some product is available since last year.



6. My own experience: Regardless of seller and brand, your friends will get quoted price cheaper than you for rm300~500 for the same spec, or vice versa. That's kinda sad. That's why you only allow to PM for price (so called professional). No choice la. cari makan. i understand. but still a bit sad, cause different too much d. rm100-200 still can accept. but 200~500 is too much. Nobody like to be water fish. So for new guys, always ask your friends for price comparison!
* Promotion from time to time is different in all company.

7. Afterall, the most recommended tint spec I found is:
* This is very subjective on personal recommended tint. Sometimes, you need to see the budget and the true quality of the film itself.
* I provide 3 important tips to choose the good film.
i) Choose Brand that selling genuine USA product.
ii) Choose Original product for its brand. (Normally come with brand's packaging and logo on the film itself)
iii) Finally, test the tint with spotlight or Solar Meter device.

8. I research the spec above from official website. new inexperience should do so for your prefer tint.
* Original Product name will appear on it's website. Prevent yourself from buying "non-original" product or "House-brand' product.
* Some USA brand authorized dealers selling 90% of "House Brand" product.


9. Beware of double layer tint, or tint over 6 mil tick, it will spoil your power window. (too heavy i guess?)
* Thicker film will disrupt the power window in 1-2 years time.
* Double layer normally not compliant with JPJ.


10. In the end, balance between the price and the spec is what will you should consider to make your decision.
* Window Film warranty period is very long and Malaysia weather is very humid and hot.
* If you got budget RM1-2K. Just get the best tint in your car and enjoy the best protection.

Hi Guys,

I just tint my honda city 2 week ago with v-kool elite from tint shop. During night time, my back windscreen reflects light very badly and it makes it very difficult to see. Is this normal?

This is my 2nd time tint with tint shop with v-kool elite. Previously my MyVi have no problem at all. Is this a tinting method goes awry or the tinting paper have problem?

Should I go back the shop or go to V-Kool center to rectify?

Hi bro, myvi or normal MPV will not have this problem as the rear windscreen is quite vertical, but compare to slope rear windscreen for saloon car, this phenomena is very normal. I see it in many cars too.

I'm also looking for a above average car tint. Not looking to spend a fortune but just want to feel cool in the car. Thickness don't really matter much but prefer 4 mil,  used to have 6 mil and start screwing up with power windows as if the screen about to get stuck.

Advise anyone?

Most of safety film 4mil - 6mil will not spoilt your car power window. I'm not recommended safety film thicker than 6mil film.

Something is fishy here.

The only TSER with 62% i can see here is the Centurion that only has VLT 53%. And 53% is pretty dark and risky at this kind of "season"

Raytech Centurion 4mil VLT 58%, VLR 15%, IRR95% and TSER 62%. Check this out.

Can any pro raytech tint owners / staff able to confirm that raytech ultra 70 and centurion are certified ?  Are these the best available for raytech ?

I am planning to have them install soon
According to an official release by PDRM, this prominently includes:

    Illegal window tinting that’s beyond the legal limits of allowing 70% of light through the front windshield and 50% of light through the side and rear windows and windshield
    Licence plates that aren’t in accordance with allowed specifications for size and position
    Unauthorised use of strobe, or flashing lights on vehicles

After June 15, anyone still using any of the above can and will be subject legally to a RM300 fine at least and  on the spot by the police. Higher darkness level by % will increased from 300 - 600

Hi, Raytech film will not have rainbow effect on the film.

The suggestion for the VLT35% for the 2 rear side window and rear windscreen has not get the approval from Parliament yet. It is just a suggestion from Timbalan Menteri talk during the "Bengkel Discussion. But this make me really confuse, before this Ketua Pengarah JPJ, emphasis want to catch dark tinted due to criminal case may happen inside the car as the police officer can't see into the car tinted with dark film, and the new suggestion is helping on the criminal case again as VLT 35% very hard to see thought also.

According to the AAA Association Malaysia, (this is association for audio, accessories, tinted and air-con) their request during the "bengkel Discussion" is list as below :
VLT for the front > 60%
VLT for the rest of window >40%
I think AAA proposal is more reasonable and good for public.

VLT 'only' 58%? Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that you might not understand VLT clearly.

VLT is Visible Light Transmitted, which is the percentage of visible light that passes directly through filmed glass. 
The higher the number,the lighter the film.

So based on these numbers, Centurion RX4 film for example is JPJ compliant, because the required VLT is at least 70% for front, and 50% for side and back. This film VLT is 58%, higher than JPJ requirement which is 50%.

Oh, for the front they'll not set up the same film as the side / back.
For example, Centurion RX4 package usually used:
- V90 non-security film for the front with VLT 70%, and
- RX4 security film at the side and back with VLT 58%.

So, both pass JPJ compliant because the VLT is same / higher than required. I assume this is true for other package and other brands.  smile.gif Unless you specifically request a specific tinted for the front that less than 70% VLT.

Calling Lord Gitsy for further confirmation.  biggrin.gif
Yeah, this is the real issue. Well cannot blame them though, those film are built assuming every car glass is 100% light transmitted. So, those film are already JPJ compliant, but when combining with our car glass, it become the opposite, not compliant anymore. Haha  biggrin.gif

That's why usually some tinted film adviser said they can handle if we got JPJ letter, because they can settle it (by proving to JPJ that their film is already JPJ compliant). But if need to check by Puspakom, they might cannot help settle. Puspakom don't care your film JPJ compliant or not.  laugh.gif

Hi guys, sorry i am busy these days, sorry for late reply.
I think everybody know the front windscreen the VLT must above 70% and VLT for the side and the back should above 50% in order to compliant with JPJ rules. Centurion 4mil VLT58% is only apply for the side, should have not problem at all. In Centurion 4mil package, the front will be Raytech Ultra 70. Indeed, most of the glass is not 100% clear, so we need higher VLT film to apply on the glass to make sure it is still compliant with JPJ.

Message from Raytech Malaysia, we will still continuously offering JPJ and Polis guarantee to all customer no matter what happened.

oh very sorry, i should have been clearer in my question. i mean after putting tint, how many days does it take for the tint paper to fully settle and dry?  i ask because its been 6 days n some part of my tint still has small tiny bubbles
*
Hi, just for your info, there is 2 types of bubbles on the window film.

a) Dirt Bubbles - Normally will not disappear, can claim workmanship warranty and need retint.

b) Air Bubbles - Normally will disappear within 3-4 days for SOLAR film.
- Normally will not disappear for SAFETY film, unless u can wait for few months.

Last advice, if you not sure what kind of bubble is it, and the bubble still there after 1 week, it is advice to drive back the car to the tinting shop and ask for warranty claim. Normally, they will fix back for you. smile.gif
