Your questions about automotive window tint answered
What is window tint?
Window tinting is the process of applying a light colored coating to a car’s windshield. The primary reason for tinted windows are safety and privacy, but there are other benefits as well. Those benefits include UV protection, reducing the temperature in a vehicle during summer, reducing the glare of the sun, and of course aesthetic reasons!
Where in the car is the window tint applied?
Window tint is applied to the automotive glass surfaces of various windows within a car. Typically, it is applied to the side windows, rear windshield (or rear window), and sometimes the top portion of the front windshield (known as the sun strip or sun visor) for both the driver window and passenger window. In most cases, the tint film is not applied to the main area of the front windshield as it may obstruct the driver’s view or violate local regulations. The tint film is installed on the interior side of the glass to protect it from external damage and ensure longevity.

Do you have a warranty on your products and services such as car window tinting?
Yes, in fact our premium product XR and XR PLUS even have a lifetime warranty transferable from one owner to another.
Do you install the tinted film on the outside of the car?
No, we shrink the film to match the window’s shape and size on the outside. The final application is done inside the vehicle adding to the film’s lifespan by protecting it from outside elements. If you have any questions, you can trust our excellent customer service that already made us a lot of satisfied customers.
Is it legal to install tinted automotive films on my automobile windows?
Laws vary greatly from province to province in Canada, but there are often differences between front windows and rear windows. In most provinces, there is no color limit for the rear bezels and rear side windows as long as the vehicle has mirrors on each side.
When it comes to front windows, Protex offers a virtually invisible high performance solution that provides a crisp, clear view of both inside and out. We invite you to consult the current applicable window tinting laws in your province (SAAQ for Quebec) or simply ask one of our franchisees near you.
Can a police officer pull me over because of my car window tint?
The determination of whether vehicle window tint is “substantially” (regarding the percentage of darkness) obstructive is left to the discretion of individual police officers. In Quebec, if a notice for inspection is issued during a traffic stop, a visit to a road vehicle inspection agent is mandatory.

Is automotive window tint considered decorative film?
Automotive window tint can be considered a type of decorative film, as it enhances the appearance of a vehicle and can provide a customized look. However, window tint also serves practical functions beyond aesthetics, such as reducing glare, providing privacy, blocking harmful UV rays, and improving energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer. So, while window tint may be decorative, it also offers functional benefits that go beyond mere decoration.
How to clean and maintain a window tint?
H6: To clean and maintain your window tint, follow these steps:
- Wait before cleaning: After the tint has been freshly installed, wait a few days (typically 3-5 days) before cleaning it to allow the film to fully adhere and cure. This will prevent damage or distortion to the film.
- Use a gentle cleaning product: When cleaning tinted windows, use the correct cleaning product such as a non-ammonia-based glass cleaner or a mild soap and water solution. Ammonia can cause the tint film to deteriorate over time, reducing its effectiveness and lifespan.
- Use a soft cloth or microfiber towel: Avoid using abrasive materials such as paper towels or rough cloths, which can scratch the tint film. Instead, use a soft cloth or a microfiber towel to gently clean the window surface.
- Spray the cleaner on the cloth: Instead of spraying the cleaner directly on the window, spray it onto the cloth. This will help prevent the cleaner from seeping under the edges of the tint film, which can cause it to lift or peel.
- Clean gently: Gently wipe the window in a circular motion, making sure not to apply too much pressure. Be cautious around the edges of the tint film to avoid lifting or damaging it.
- Dry the window: After cleaning, use a clean, dry microfiber towel to gently dry the window. This will help prevent streaks and residue.
- Regular maintenance: Clean your tinted windows regularly to keep them looking their best and to maintain the film’s effectiveness.
Avoid using sharp objects: When removing stickers or other items from your tinted windows, avoid using sharp objects such as razors or knives, as these can scratch or damage the tint film.
