Window tint doesn't have to be dark to protect.

How does it work?
LLumar is a microthin film that is installed on the inside of your car windows. It has a patented adhesive system that bonds the film to the glass... and can be placed on the back and side windows of your car.

Does it have to be dark to work?
Window tint doesn't have to be dark to protect.It is a myth that window film has to be dark to be effective. State laws are in effect that outlaw very dark (black-out) window tinting. LLumar comes in several different light transmissions - all being neutral in appearance.

Who makes it?
LLumar was developed by CPFilms Inc. in Martinsville, Virginia... the largest manufacturer of window films in the world, using the same advanced, patented technology used in space to protect astronauts from the harmful effects of the sun.

When do I purchase it?
After you have purchased your car, LLumar High Performance Automotive Film is installed through a nationwide network of factory-trained dealer/installers.

How long will it last?

How Much Does Window Tint Cost?
The pricing for car tint can very dramatically depending on what tint shop you go to. Many fly by night and mobile tinters quote prices as low $100 where luxury shops price there tint at over $500.

So how do you know if you are getting the best value for your auto tint at a reasonable price? There are many pricing factors that professional tint shops use to calculate the cost of window tint.

Your Car Type
Essentially not all car makes are built the same. Some cars are harder to tint than others. When getting a price quote, a Tint Shop always asks you for the make and model of your car. This isn't to see how much money you have and charge you up the wazoo. (Often it is with less reputable tinters)

Professional Tinters know which cars take more time to tint properly. Some cars with steep and curved rear windows like the Volkswagon Beetle or Corvette tinters often charge a premium to tint. Additionally, each additional square foot of window on your vehicle requires more window film to tint. This makes tinting a SUV or station wagons cost more than sedans.

Type of Tinting Film
Just like comparing a Hyundai to a Porsche, there are wide performance and cost differences in tinting film. The cheapest tinting film can be many times less in price than more expensive film, but you get what you pay for.

Cheap film may look good at the beginning, but they can fail to block the summer heat, fade, turn purple, or bubble soon after installation. Higher quality window high performance films such as fully-metallized sputtered or deposition window films like LLumar UVShield® offer both advanced performance and a lifetime warranty. These films are worth the higher price.

Performance Warranty
It is important that you always ask about the Performance Warranty of the window film used by the shop before you purchase tinting services. Typical warranties run from as little as 1 year to a Lifetime.

Not all Warrantees are created equal!
Most warrantees only cover problems such as cracking, glazing, bubbling, and peeling. Some films carry a "Color-Safe Warranty" that gives you peace of mind that if the color of your tint ever changes, it will be replaced. The best warrantees are "Transferable" which allow you to transfer the warranty to another person when you sell the car. This adds permanent value to your car. For information on LLumar's life time transferable warranty please read on.

Be Careful!
Many tint shops carelessly offer "Lifetime Warrantees"; but, if they go out of business next year, who will be there to replace your bubbling tint? You should always factor in this "hidden" cost when buying low priced car tint. All of our Llumar window film comes with a written lifetime warrantee honored at over 7,000 LLumar dealers nation wide.
