In summer, not only people need sun protection, but also cars need sun protection. Many friends are aware of this, so they put a heat insulation film on the windshield glass of their cars. The film can not only prevent sun exposure, but also heat insulation and UV protection. The light transmittance and UV protection index of the heat insulation film are often what pot friends want to know.
Compared with other major maintenance projects, the car windshield is indeed a small detail. It is easy to form frost on the windshield glass in winter, and there is often a lot of shellac on the windshield glass in summer. The countless dust in spring, summer, autumn and winter sometimes causes a lot of trouble for the driver. Next, I will talk to you about those things about car glass maintenance.
Reasonable use of glass water
There are many types of glass water on the domestic market, but they are mainly divided into three types: summer glass water, winter antifreeze glass water and special effect antifreeze glass water. Among them, the summer glass water is mainly used to remove insect residues on the mirror; the winter antifreeze glass water is mainly to ensure that the auto parts will not be damaged when the temperature is below minus 20℃; the special antifreeze glass water is mainly used for In particularly cold areas in the north, ensure that the car does not freeze even at minus 40°C.
In the usual glass maintenance process, we have to choose the appropriate glass water according to the specific conditions of the season and weather. When we find the surface of the windshield glass is blurred, use the appropriate glass water to clean it, and the car glass will be much brighter. If you find the problem of chaotic light reflection on the glass at night, you can also wipe it with glass water. In addition, when driving at high speeds or in dusty conditions, the glass water will be used very quickly, so we should also pay attention to injecting new glass water immediately.
Some car owners think that washing car glass is just cleaning and decontamination, so they use washing powder or detergent instead of glass water. Some car owners are cheaper and directly use clean water instead. These workshops have hidden dangers. There are some deposits in chemical detergents such as washing powder, which will easily corrode the rubber tube over time, and will block the spray nozzle, and in severe cases will damage the motor. The general detergent will also continue to corrode the rubber tube and accelerate the hardening of the catalyzed wiper rubber strip. When the hardened rubber strip scratches the windshield, it will accelerate the surface of the windshield to be shaved and scratched. If the wiper is replaced again, the cost will be dozens of times the price of glass water. Although ordinary clean water is very clean, there are many chemical residues in it, and the accumulation of time will also cause the clogging of the spray nozzle and affect the spraying. Long-term use will also increase the friction of the mirror surface, which will easily leave slight scratches on the mirror surface when the wiper is cleaned.
The effect of the heat insulation film has nothing to do with the color
In summer, not only people need sun protection, but cars also need sun protection. Many friends are aware of this, so they put a heat shield on the windshield of their cars. The film can not only prevent sun exposure, but also heat insulation and UV protection. The light transmittance and UV protection index of the heat insulation film are often what pot friends want to know.
The front windshield glass has high requirements for the heat insulation film. According to the traffic safety regulations of the Ministry of Public Security, the light transmittance of the front windshield glass must be greater than 70%. Therefore, it is recommended to choose a heat insulation film with a heat insulation rate of about 60%. Regarding the side windshield glass insulation film, the same condition does not affect the observation of the rearview mirror. The optional insulation film for the side windshield is more flexible, and the color is also more variable.
It should be noted that the thermal insulation effect of the thermal insulation film is not directly related to the color depth. The coating process in the thermal insulation film is the key factor that determines the thermal insulation effect. The higher the heat insulation rate, the more reflective the light will be.
glass insurance for your car
Single glass breakage insurance, that is, the insurance company is responsible for compensating for the loss of the vehicle’s glass alone when the vehicle is in use. Separate broken glass means that only the windshield and window glass of the insured vehicle are damaged. In addition, if the insurance company is insured at the rate of imported glass, the insurance company will compensate at the price of imported glass. If the insurance company chooses to insure at the rate of domestic glass, the insurance company will compensate at the price of domestic glass.
