Many people want to know if they can legally tint there front windshield.
It makes sense, it is the largest window on most cars and lets in the most heat.
Crystalline 90 Clear Window Film can protect your dash, protect you from the sun and reduce your chances for skin cancer and dramatically reduce temperatures in your car. In addition it can also reduce glare, improve visibility, reduce eye fatigue and protect you from flying glass should your glass break.
Most people think of tint as being dark which can reduce visibility, but advances in film technology has made it possible to have an almost clear film that reduces more heat than many of the darker films and improves day and night time visibility.
So can you tint your windshield legally?
The department of transportation "DOT" says that you can apply a protective coating as long as the total VLT doesn't go darker than 70%. As long as you use a film that has a VLT of 90% or higher then you will still be legal. According to DOT laws you can have window tint on your front windshield.
Currently the only film you can use to meet federal laws for the front windshield is Crystalline 90%. All newer cars have a very light tint to the windshield, usually 77% to 80%. If you put anything darker than 90% you will not meet federal laws.
Crystalline 90 does not change the look of the windshield and will not affect visibility in or out. Crystalline 90 is the film we recommend for front windshields and is almost clear and virtually undetectable. It is also DOT legal to have on your front windshield. 3M Crystalline is currently the most advanced window tint on the market.
