What is a car privacy window film?

Сar privacy window film is installed to your vehicle’s windows to give them the same appearance and effect as privacy glass. If your car didn’t come with privacy glass by default but you want to get it, then you would basically need to completely replace the windows of your car, which is an expensive process.

But adding a privacy window film is much cheaper, faster and cost-effective. Here at Tinting Chicago we will also make sure to comply with the tinting laws in the state of Illinois, so you won’t have any legal problems later on.  Car privacy window film can be added on the front side, rear side and rear windows.

What’s the difference between tinted glass and privacy glass?

Privacy glass is manufactured to be less transparent and to block some of the light coming from outside. On the other hand, tinted glass is a regular window glass over which a tinting film is applied.

Privacy glass is created through an electrical process which includes dyeing the inside of the glass with a dark pigment. Usually, family cars and executive models come with privacy glass on the back windows by default.

The privacy glass is more resistant, and tinted glass has the risk of developing air bubbles. But luckily, all of our tinting films come with a lifetime warranty for peeling, bubbling or fading.
