What is the purpose for using clear window film?
Clear film is often applied over privacy glass. Given that privacy glass is usually quite dark (and may have a measured VLT as low as 20-25%) it is not legal to apply a coloured film over this. Application of a clear film can deliver the maximum protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. The MotorOne Cancer Council UV clear film has been rated by ARPANSA as having the highest possible rating – UPF 50+.
Clear films also improve safety in that if the glass is broken, the film will help hold glass fragments rather than showering inside the vehicle.
Clear film can also be applied to the glass of any vehicle where the driver does not want to use a coloured film.
