V-KOOL is a pioneer in window films technology in Malaysia. The ‘V’ in V-KOOL is derived from the spectral-selectivity properties characterized by the films’ coating. In a wavelength vs. rejection graph, V-KOOL lets most of the visible light through, but rejects almost all the infra-red and ultra-violet wavelengths. This appears as a V-shaped graph, thereby representing the ‘V’ in V-KOOL. Cool, right?
There are a lot of window films in Malaysia. Brands like V-KOOL, 3M, Hüper Optik, LLumar, ECOTINT, Solar Gard, Air Cool, Armorcoat… However, which car tinting to choose is the question that I am facing right now. I did some researches online. And narrow down into 4 popular brands ~ V-KOOL, 3M, Hüper Optik and LLumar.
3M Malaysia Crystalline Solar Film is one of the choices for my Honda City. It is produced using patented proprietary Multi-Layered Optical Film (MOF) technology that provides superior rejection, keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the day.
Before got my Honda City, I planned to install windows film on it. It will help to reduce some heat on Malaysia hot weather. There is lot of window films brands like 3M, V-Kool… And they offer several products which have visible light transmittance of 70%, 60%, 50% and 40%. So can we install anyone of them that we like? I am not sure. Because based on JPJ Malaysia Installation of Tinted Glass Rules below…
[pull_quote_center]Rules 5 (1) and 5 (3) of the Motor Vehicles (Prohibition of Certain Types of Glass), Amendment 2000, stipulate that the front windscreen should permit not less than 70% light transmission, while the back windscreen and side windows should permit not less than 50% light transmission.
