Toughened glass is most frequently used in the rear and side windows of vehicles. It is designed to be much stronger than standard glass. In the case of breakage, it shatters into very small blunt pieces thereby significantly reducing risk of injury.
To produce a tempered glass for automobiles, glass is heated until its temperature gets near the softening point and then cooled quickly to get the surface of glass to produce prestress layer on the surface of glass and produce tensile stress inside it, so as to improve the strength of glass. The heating cycle is also used to shape or curve the glass, either by allowing the heated glass to ‘sag’ to a pre-defined mould shape under gravity, or for more complex shapes, by being pressed to shape by male and female moulds.
- SAFETY – If the tempered auto glass gets broken, the whole glass is torn into obtuse particles shaped like honeycomb which are less harmful to the human body. Thus, the personal safety of the driver and passengers can be well protected.
- HIGH MECHANICAL STRENGTH – The impact resistance of temper glass is five to eight times more than an annealed glass of the same thickness, as well as three to four times higher resistance to weight.
- THERMAL STABILITY – The glass can endure temperatures ranging from 250*C to 350*C. Our specialist manufacturers can produce temper glass to your specifications in special circumstances.
- COLOUR TINT – Is also available in the manufacturing process know as Clear, Green, Bronze or Blue.
- FEATURES – Some vehicles may require Solar absorbing, Acoustic or Heater demist glass. Low visible Compliance Mark for vintage and collectable cars.

There are considerations when choosing the car tint to use on your vehicle. The best window tint does not necessarily mean it is the right tint unless it complies with the law. Unfortunately, privacy is not an exemption to car tint laws if this is your reason for getting a full tint service from an auto servicing company. Certain guidelines on tint levels set out by the Department of Transport. Failure to comply may cause charges and fines. When you have fully understood the laws pertaining to vehicle tinting in Australia, it becomes easier to decide on the best window tint to use. We can assist you in being compliant when we tint your auto glass.
What is auto glass tinting?
Auto glass tinting is the process of using laminates or films to coat onto the glass interior of the front, side and rear windows of the car. It is often done to reduce heat, glare, and UV that gets inside the car. Polyester is the mainly used material for tinting due to its durability and clarity. Window tinting is one of the basics of owning a car. With your windows tinted, the temperature inside the car is kept cool even when under direct sunlight. It also protects you from UV and other harmful elements. Moreover, tinted windows provide privacy.
