The extreme heats maybe too much for some especially for the elder person, children, pregnant women, sick men and much more. The extreme heat also affect the car lovers as for those who parked the car in the open parking area it will be extremely humid for them to enter the car and in some cases for some whom working in the morning shift, they will have difficulties to even touch the steering due to the heat in the car.

In this situation, the car lovers will like to put the car tinted film on their car window to counter this situation. What is a tinted film? A tinted film is a thin film or laminate that made from polyester due to the nature that of it that can produce excellent clarity, tensile strength, stability and the flexibility to be fixed invariant situation.
