Window Tinting Perth

For the last two generations we have been warned about the dangers of too much Sun exposure. This advice was later tempered by the realization that we needed at least some Sunlight in order to produce vitamin D. But as people we still tend to get too much Sun exposure, while our houses, cars and other possessions also benefit from some Sun protection.

The visible light from the Sun is not too much of an issue. But the light just outside the region, the infrared below visible light and the Ultraviolet above it will potentially cause some problems.

Infrared light will cause objects to get hotter. Think of a car’s interior on a hot summer day.

Ultraviolet light causes Sunburn in people, and fading of paint, upholstery, furniture, leather and many other products. People do need a small amount of UV to be healthy.

Car Window Tinting Perth   

Tinting your car windows will protect the interior of the car. Because the infrared light is blocked the car will not heat up as much in the Sun. Because the ultraviolet light is blocked the interior will suffer very little fading or damage. The driver and passengers will have a much more comfortable experience.

For legal and safety reasons the front windscreen of a car cannot be tinted. We suggest an internal Sunshade for the windscreen when parking.

House Window Tinting Perth

House window tinting works on the same principle. Ordinary glass will block some ultraviolet light (about 25%), but tinted windows will block 99.9% of the Ultraviolet. This means carpets, furniture and curtains will not suffer fading. Many homes had previously draw the curtains to protect the house interior, but the curtains themselves were still subject to ultraviolet damage, and the natural light was blocked. This meant electric light was required, which raised power bills.

Tinted windows also lower power bills by blocking infrared light. The house is cooler when infrared light is reduced, so air conditioning costs are greatly reduced.

Car Detailing Perth               

As the name implies Car detailing looks after all the details of a car’s appearance – the shiny chrome, the upholstery …etc. It helps considerably if these interior items have not suffered any Sun damage. Tinted Windows help preserve the car interior.

Car Ceramic paint Protection Coating Perth           

As tinted windows protect the inside of a car so ceramic paint protection protects the outside of the car. These paint protectors last several years, and prove more cost effective than regularly repeated waxing.

Normal glass does block some UV radiation, but not all of it. Without a Protective film or coating clear glass will block most UVB rays that cause sunburn, but not all UVA rays that cause other forms of damage. Plain glass reduces UV rays and their damage, but does not eliminate them.


Any glass window can be fitted with protective film that eliminates more than 99% of UV rays. These UV protective films last for years, protecting both the people and furnishings inside from damage.


House Window Tinting Perth

Furniture and carpets will suffer fading if not protected from UV light. Affixing UV film to the windows all but eliminates this.


Car Window Tinting Perth

One of the few issue to watch for with tinted windows is correct washing. Tinted windows can take far longer to dry that plain glass. With any type of glass cleaning there is always problems streaks forming, but film treated windows also have potential issues with water getting between the film and the glass. This trapped water can result in a hazy and blistered window. Proper window cleaning techniques can prevent this.



Many glass cleaning products contain ammonia. This quickly damages rubber, leather, vinyl and some other car surfaces, so should be avoided. Ammonia is also harmful to tinting film, so is completely unsuitable for cars with tinted windows.

Ammonia is harmful to people, and should only be used in well ventilated areas.


Microfiber Towels.

It is easy to achieve great results by use a wet microfiber towel to clean a window. Wet part of the towel for cleaning the glass surface, then immediately use the dry part of the towel for drying.


Car Detailing Perth,

Car detailing will look after windscreen wipers, which need to be clean lest they cause visibility problems with the glass. It will also look after that area that door windows retract into, lest this cause problems.

Heat Reduction:  Been in a hot car in Summer? Nothing good about that situation! Tinting the windows means the car won’t be nearly as hot when you get in, and you won’t have to wait for the air conditioner to set things right. Even better, your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard, meaning you save energy and money.

UV Protection: Do we need to tell you about what the Sun does to your skin? What about what it does to the car’s interior. Windows can block UV-B, but usually not UV-A; this is only partial protection. Remove the need to wear sunblock inside. Tint the windows and live with a little luxury.

Glare Reduction: It affects you visibility, and that is an issue when driving. Admittedly this is not too much of an issue, but even if it only makes the car slightly safer, isn’t it worth it.

Privacy: Prevent people seeing the valuables in the back seat, and reduce the risk of theft. Not a common problem if you keep possessions safely hidden, just another small benefit.

Preventing injury: If a normal window breaks it can split and spill into a thousand pieces. Safety glass is better in regards to this as the glass is far less likely to be sharp, but a broken window still means countless pieces of glass in your vehicle. The film of a tinted window will tend to hold the broken glass in one piece, which prevents it from hitting passengers and being lost in the car interior for the following weeks.

The right Tinting can just look great on your Car:  it depends on the colour of the paintwork and the style of car, but there’s a tine to suit every vehicle.

Tyre Development

The invention of the wheel was obviously so long ago that nobody can trace it. The rubber tyre, by contrast, can be traced back to two historical events. In 1888 John Boyd Dunlop made an inflatable rubber tyre for a child’s tricycle, found that it was effective and pursued an interest in using rubber tyres for bicycles and light transport. He had trouble later when his patent on the idea was declared invalid; an earlier inventor named Robert William Thomson had had a similar idea in 1846, had produced a leather and rubber tyre and successfully used it with a horse drawn carriage. Unfortunalty, the idea had been held back by the lack of suitably thin rubber.

Vulcanization of rubber, which was discovered in the 1840s only just before Thomson’s tyre, proved invaluable for tyres. Prior to this all rubber was sticky and easily deformed. Vulcanized rubber, which has had sulphur or other substances added during a heating process, contains multiple cross-links in its chemical structure. It can be moulded into various shapes, and though it is flexible it will return to its moulded when stress is removed. The tyres used for heavy vehicles, which require considerable durability and load bearing qualities, required vulcanized rubber; without this process tyres would have been limited to bicycles and light vehicles.

By the 1920’s synthetic rubber had been invented, and within a few years the rising price of natural rubber made synthetic alternatives an increasingly viable alternative. Synthetic rubber had an additional advantage is how it could be custom made to suit various applications; natural rubber could be modified, but only to a limited degree.

The idea for radial tires, where the supporting plies in the tyre are arranged across the tyre at an angle 90degrees from the angle of travel, was patented in 1915, but it was not till the mid-1940s that practical manufacture proved feasible. Nonetheless, the superiority of these tyres was recognized, their only slight disadvantage being the change they gave to the suspension and handling of a car. Modifying the car’s suspension reduced this effect while still retaining the tyre’s superior performance. Radial tyres gave less internal friction, reducing wear and allowing improved fuel economy.

Improved car and tyre performance goes hand in hand with improved brake performance. ICER Oceania produce brake pads for all makes of cars including European and other foreign makes.
