Does the tinting film offer any protection in case of glass damage?
Yes. When windows are mechanically damaged, the tinting film prevents the fragments from projection, significantly reducing the possibility of injury.
How much does a tinted film for a car cost?
The cost of DELTAFILM tinting films depends on many factors. Please check the catalog of our online store for up to date information or contact our managers for advice. You can also contact the nearest UNIONDELTA authorized dealer in your area.
How is a car tinting film different from an architectural film?

Car tinting films are very different from architectural film coatings in terms of their properties.

First, architectural films are designed to reflect solar radiation, while automotive films absorb it. This property makes it uncomfortable to use automotive film coatings on windows of buildings and structures.

Architectural films are designed for use on fixed objects and are not intended for heat treatment during installation. Tinted car films, on the contrary, almost always undergo a process of molding by heating due to the bends of the car windows.

Also, architectural films have a specific adhesive backing, which allows the film to be easily controlled on large-area glass surfaces.

How long does it take to tint a car?
When you address specialists qualified in car window tinting, the process can take from 45 minutes to several hours. The time required for tinting depends on many factors, such as the number of windows to be tinted, the complexity of glazing forms, the installer's professional skills, and more. We recommend not to rush your installer to get quality results.
What energy-saving properties does the architectural film provide for residential or commercial applications?
The film will help reduce the cost of electricity required for indoor air conditioning when the weather is warm. On the contrary, the film retains heat inside the room during cold weather and allows you to save on heating. Window films block up to 86% of solar energy, thereby increasing the energy efficiency of the building.
What does the film tinting process involve?

The most common sequence of actions of the tinting process is as follows:

  1. Room preparation: The room must be clean, without draughts, and with good lighting.

  2. Glass surface preparation: The glass is cleaned with a special soapy solution.

  3. Film cutting and shaping: The film is placed on the outer surface of the glass for cutting and shaping using a heat gun.

  4. Installation. After the film has been cut and shaped, the protective layer is removed from the film, and soap solution is sprayed on it at the same time. The soap solution is also applied to the inner surface of the glass with a spray gun. Next, the film is applied to the glass, and excess moisture is removed from under it with a film wrapping tool.

  5. Examining the result. The tinted surface is inspected from inside and outside for defects that need to be promptly corrected.

  6. Drying. After the window tinting work is completed, it is strictly forbidden to use the windows for at least three days. Depending on weather conditions, the complete drying process may take up to several weeks. Tiny bubbles may appear under the film during this process. They will disappear when the moisture completely evaporates.

How do I tint my car myself?
The tinting process requires the installer to possess professional skills and techniques. With unprofessional installation, it is impossible to get a quality result. At the very least, if there is a lack of experience, there will be dirt and dust under the film, which negatively affects its optical properties and appearance.
We recommend contacting professional installation detailing centers to install DELTAFILM tinting film. Quality tinting film application will give you a sense of satisfaction and a guarantee of a great result.
How do you tint car windows - from the inside or outside?
The outside of the car glass is used solely for cutting and adjusting the shape of the tinting film. DELTAFILM film coatings are always applied to the inside of the glass - on the passenger side. Only DELTAPLEX protective films are installed on the outside.
Is it illegal to tint a car?
Please check the requirements of technical regulations in your area.
How do I choose a tinting film for my car?
UNIONDELTA provides its authorized dealers with catalogs with samples of film coatings for demonstration and to facilitate the choice of customers. Our regional representatives will help you choose the best solution for your specific needs and help you navigate through the wide range of products.
How do car and window films affect visibility?
They hardly affect it. The window film coverings, professionally installed under current regulations, do not distort or restrict the view from inside the car or building. The film can even improve visibility by eliminating glares.
Is it true that DELTAFILM films protect the interior of the car and indoor furniture from fading?
DELTAFILM films significantly reduce the risk of burns on the car interior, furniture, and interior finishes.
How do I clean tinted glass?
The process of cleaning tinted glass is similar to cleaning non-tinted windows. After applying the film, you should wait about 30 days before washing it. A typical window cleaning solution that does not contain abrasives is used for cleaning. After spraying the detergent, use a soft cloth or tissue. Do not use abrasive cleaning materials and tools!
Where can I buy DELTAFILM automobiles and window films?
You can buy UNIONDELTA products online in our official online store or by contacting our managers. We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with our dealer network.
Do window films provide energy savings in winter?

In addition to the fact that architectural films in summer provide energy savings for air conditioning, they contribute to preserving heat in winter, thereby reducing the cost of heating.

In addition, it is worth remembering UV rays, which have a year-round negative impact on the external condition of furniture, flooring, decor, and other property directly exposed to sunlight. Such harmful effects can be significantly reduced by using architectural films, which block up to 99% of ultraviolet light.

Thus, DELTAFILM window films protect you and your property all year round while providing maximum comfort and lower energy costs.

How do tinted films filter the sun's energy?
Solar radiation consists of visible light, invisible ultraviolet rays, and infrared radiation, which we feel as heat. In a situation where the sun's direct rays hit the tinted glass, the film blocks ultraviolet rays. It regulates the passage of visible light and heat, depending on its specifications.
What are the advantages of DELTAFILM window films?

The benefits of window film coverings depend on where they are used.

For buildings:

  • Reduces heat from the sun's rays in summer and keeps heat indoors in winter.

  • Reduces air conditioning and heating costs.

  • Extends the service life of heating and air conditioning systems.

UNIONDELTA offers a vast selection of DELTAFILM architectural and automotive films. We understand that making the right decision in the context of a wide range of products can be difficult. Therefore, we suggest that you consult UNIONDELTA specialists or your nearest authorized dealer of our products in case of difficulties.
Why install DELTAPLEX films on commercial and service vehicles?

  • Protection from road hazards - gravel, rocks, etc.

  • Protection against UV radiation.

  • Improved visibility due to the excellent hydrophobic properties of the film, preventing the retention of water and road dirt on the glass.

  • Vehicles are in operation, not idle, due to repairs and window replacement.

How do I remove or replace a DELTAPLEX film?
DELTAPLEX films have an excellent adhesive layer that holds the film tightly to the windshield. If you want to remove or replace the coating, it can be done by simply take the film by one edge and pull it slowly but with constant force. If minor traces of glue are left on the glass, they can be removed with a special delicate product. Remember that new DELTAPLEX coating is only installed on a clean windshield.
Can I forget about the DELTAPLEX film after it's been installed?
No. DELTAPLEX protects your car windshield from a whole list of road and weather hazards. In this regard, depending on the operating conditions and mileage of the car, it may be necessary to replace the film with a new one because of the deterioration of its optical characteristics due to the damage received.
How long will the DELTAPLEX film last on my windshield?
The adhesive layer of DELTAPLEX film holds the coating even at high speeds. Therefore, if the film was applied without violating the right procedure, you should not worry that it can suddenly and spontaneously come off.

Can DELTASKIN films be installed on car optics?
Yes. Any DELTASKIN transparent film can be installed on car optics. In addition, DELTASKIN LIGHTS PROTECTION FILM tinted polyurethane and hybrid films have been developed for protection and additional styling of the optics.
After some time, following the installation of the protective film on the headlights, it became cloudy. Why?
Special water-based solutions are used during installation. The situation when the film is cloudy is temporary and related to the evaporation of moisture. Once all the moisture from under the film evaporates, the problem will disappear.
Which is the best way to apply a protective film on the optics - with or without the use of aqueous solutions?
We recommend installing film coatings using special water-based solutions, as this method of installation reduces the possibility of poor-quality results. However, the method of installation without aqueous solutions is considered more straightforward on smaller parts.
Why do the edges of the film not adhere completely when installing with aqueous solutions?
You need to use a heat gun to make the edges of the film adhere. The hot air will allow the remaining solution to evaporate from under the edges of the film and make it more flexible to take the shape of the element. Be careful when using a heat gun to heat the film on plastic parts. If you overheat them, they can be damaged. Light heating is required to apply the coating.
What should I do if I need to remove the paint protection film from the headlights?
Removing the film is done by heating it and physical effort. We recommend you contact the professional installation detailing center nearest to you to qualitatively remove film coating from optics.
Why do you need a Paint Protection Film?
Car paint is constantly exposed to multiple external influences such as stones, gravel, sand, bird droppings, road chemicals, tree sap, insects, and much more. DELTASKIN paint protection films are the optimal and durable solution to protect the car appearance.

Can I apply vinyl stripes and other elements on top of the paint protection film?
Yes. Vinyl can be applied over a protective film. Before applying, make sure that more than 96 hours have passed since installing the paint protection film. Under the correct approach, vinyl can be removed without damaging the film.
Do you have a windshield protection film that does not distort or restrict your view from inside the car?
Yes. We can provide you with special film coatings from the DELTAPLEX series when it comes to windshield protection.
Why does a film-covered surface look distorted or have spots on it when viewed through polarizing sunglasses?
This is a common phenomenon that does not depend on the film manufacturer. It is due to the difference in light refraction between the film layer and the car paint coating. This phenomenon frequently occurs on surfaces of complex shapes, as the film needs to be stretched to be applied on them. The film becomes a little thinner in places where it has been stretched, which causes distortion when you look at it through polarizing sunglasses.
The distortion can occur on flat surfaces due to the use of an alcohol solution during installation, which affects the properties of the adhesive.
There is a burr on the hard card. What can I do?
We offer the DT411 cleaning blade sharpener to restore the working surface of the hard cards.
Why do you have tools in the same shape but different colors? What do they mean?

What is the difference between replaceable tinting blades?
Replaceable tinting blades differ in shape for different types of work and materials - steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, etc.
Why do blades have a different angle of inclination of the cutting segment?
Blades with a blunter angle are mainly used for tinting. Blades with a sharp angle are more often used for armoring, as they allow you to work in hard-to-reach places and psychologically contribute to a safer position of the cutting part in relation to the body.
How can I safely and accurately cut out a shaped element when applying a paint protection film on the body and optics?
We offer the DT161 special tape for safely cutting out film elements on the body or optics without the need for a knife. You can use it to precisely mark the area of the body or optics that you want to cut out and cut it out unhindered after the film coating has been applied.
What is the difference between a tool with and without a handle?
A tool with a handle allows you to apply more force to remove the aqueous solution from under the film.
What tools can be used when working with a heat gun?
Only heat-resistant tools are used for works that require heating of the working surface with a heat gun. We offer a special tool for shaping film coatings designed to work in high heat conditions. On the other hand, a group of tools designed to remove the setting solution from under the film is not intended for use in high-temperature environments.
Why is there a need for multilayered film wrapping tools?
Film wrapping tools with two or more layers have different stiffnesses depending on the working side, making the tool versatile.
How do I remove dust from under the film after the installation is complete?
To remove dust particles from under the applied film, it is necessary to carry out light heating of the outer part of the tinted glass and press the problem area with a DT307, DT308, or DT309 chizler.
My hard card scratches the film. What should I do?
If you see that the hard card leaves traces on the film, you need to sharpen it with the special DT411 sharpener or use special attachments for the DT402/60, DT402/4, or DT403 microfiber cleaning blade.
What is the best tool to use to wash glass?
Using wipes and rags does not allow you to carry out high-quality glass washing because they leave stains and dust. For high-quality cleaning of glass surfaces, it is better to use a special rubber with an aluminum or stainless-steel edge from our DELTATOOL range. The selection of rubber size is based on the area of glazing to be washed.
What tool is used to check the quality of the tinting film?
The characteristics of the tinting film can be checked with special devices for measuring VLT, IRR, and VR parameters.
How do I check the thickness of the paint protection film?
The coating thickness is measured BEFORE the film coatings are applied with a mechanical or digital thickness gauge. Acoustic or magnetic induction-based paint testing instruments are NOT suitable for determining film thickness before and after installation.
Your DELTATOOL range includes tools with magnets. What is it for?
The tool with built-in magnets is used for the same purpose as a conventional tool. The difference is that a tool with magnets can be placed on the body during work without the risk of losing it.
I work without a partner. How can the film be secured to the body in preparation for application?
Use the special DT414 tape magnets to hold the tape in place. Additionally, we recommend the DT413 measuring tape with magnets, which allows you to measure body parts without assistance.
