FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What is the law regarding tinting of motor vehicles in Malaysia?
A:According to the JPJ, the regulations require a minimum of 70% Visible Light Transmission (VLT) for the front windscreen and a minimum of 50% for the sides and rear windscreen. However, the new regulation that will be implemented from May 1, 2015 states that the rear windscreen and rear passenger windows’ to have 30% VLT.
Q: What is VLT?
A:VLT is Visible Light Transmission. VLT is the amount of visible light that passes directly through filmed glass. The darker the tint, the lower the visible light transmitted.
Q: What is TSER?
A:Total Solar Energy Rejected (TSER) is the percentage of the total solar energy that is rejected. TSER includes visible light, infrared radiation and ultraviolet energy. The higher the percentage, the higher the percentage of solar energy deflected. Most tinting shops use Infra Red Rejection (IRR) as a guide to the level of heat rejection. However, IRR only covers a fraction of TSER. Internationally, TSER is used as a guide as it is a more accurate way of measuring heat rejection.
Q: What is Ultraviolet (UV) Rejection?
A:Ultraviolet Rejection is the percentage of ultraviolet energy deflected away from the window film. Ultraviolet rays can cause upholstery and furnishings to fade. It can also cause skin damage and skin cancer.
Q: Security/Safety Films â€“ Basics
A:The performance of Security/Safety films rely solely on the thickness of the film. Thicker films will endure a higher breaking point, i.e. absorbing higher impact forces in terms of LB/inchÂ² (pound per square inch), making harder it to penetrate the window. Thickness of Security/Safety films are measured in terms of â€œMilâ€ (1 Mil = 25 Microns = 0.025 Millimeter). LLumar leads the market in this segment, providing Security/Safety films ranging from the lower end of 4Mil to the highest of 15Mil.
