  • A utility knife, razor blade, or utility knife
  • Multiple towels

Percentages of Window Tinting

The tint percentage is the amount of light allowed to pass through a window film. The darker the tint is, the lower it will be. For example, a tint of 50% will let 50% of the light in the car.

A 20% tint is a popular choice among drivers. This allows you to achieve a balance between visibility and privacy, and it still makes it easy to see outside when it's sunny.

You might consider a tint of either 05% to 15% if you live or work in a sunny area. These tints are darker and can make it harder to see through your windows during daylight hours.
