Are there any luxury cars you’ve been eyeing that you fell in love with, only to be disgusted by how sun-damaged the leather upholstery was? Alternatively, you may already own a vehicle with a leather interior and are seeking for a way to get ahead of the “leather cracking” curve. Within a few years of purchase, the sun will degrade the leather interior of a car.
Your car is one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make. Do you not think that protecting that money would be in your best interest? Proactively maintaining your vehicle’s rich, beautiful leather interiors will keep them looking new and increase their resale value.
In this essay, we’ll look at how window tint helps maintain the leather in a vehicle. Before we get started, let’s take a look at what unprotected leather does to the sun’s rays.
UV RAYS FROM THE SUN ARE THE NO. 1 ENEMY OF LEATHER INTERIOR!
Adding leather seats and dashboards to a vehicle used to be an expensive option that only the most affluent consumers could afford. These same automobiles began to use’man made’ leather blends that looked like the real thing while being more cheaper and more appealing to potential purchasers through design and innovation.
When it came to protecting your new car’s leather interior from the sun’s damaging rays and fading, it didn’t matter whether you used real leather or synthetic leather. Whether the leather is real or synthetic, the sun’s UV rays degrade it, resulting in ugly fading and cracking.
Window tint designed to prevent damaging UV rays is the best approach to protect your car’s leather inside. Ultraviolet (UV) rays, like those that crack and discolor leather, can permanently harm human skin and even cause cancer in some situations.
However, how can you know which type of window tint is best for your car and your driving style? You may choose from a wide variety of window tints nowadays, all of which are meant to provide a specific amount of protection for you and your vehicle.
Now, let’s take a closer look at the various varieties of window tint and the advantages they give.
To protect my leather interior, what type of window tint is best?
In most cases, the factory-installed window tint is in the 20 percent range. The percentage of light that can travel through a window tint is the same for all types of tint. As a result, a 20% coating blocks 80% of the sunlight it is subjected to. When tinting your vehicle’s windows, you should always be aware of the restrictions in your state about the amount of darkness you can go with your tint.
The next step is to select on the type of window tint you want to use on your vehicle’s windows once you’ve determined the percentage you require. There are three basic types of automobile window tint:
Dyes. It takes several layers of dye to achieve the desired shade of tint on the customer’s window. Most of the time, these forms of window tint are the least expensive, but they are also the least long-lasting.
Tinted Metal. Tints with tiny metallic flakes pressed into the film are what we’re talking about here. Although they are effective at reflecting heat and UV rays, the metallic nature of these surfaces means that they can seriously impair cellular reception and AM/FM radio reception. Because they are less expensive than other window tinting options, metallic films are very popular.
Tint in ceramics. This is the greatest approach to protect yourself and your vehicle from damaging UV radiation. These tints are more expensive, but they claim to reduce UV radiation and infrared heat signatures by 80-98%. They are more expensive. Ceramic tinting is the most effective method for reducing damaging UV radiation and overheating.
As you can see, the ceramic tint is the best option for protecting your leather interior from the sun’s damaging rays. A team of installers is all that’s left for you to do now.
