The one rule that both auto & architectural window tinting will always share is that you should get a professional to install it. Call us today 1-403-968-8468.

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Window tinting is a technology that just keeps getting better and better, and for good reason. Tinting is not only a sleek, attractive look for your car or home, but it actually has serious health benefits – like protecting against ultraviolet (UV) radiation that can travel through car and home windows.

In fact, a study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that almost 53% of skin cancers in the United States are found on the left – the driver’s side – of the body. Those results suggest that people who drive a lot are more in danger of being exposed to UV radiation through the driver’s side window.

It comes as no surprise, then, that the popularity of the Calgary window film/tinting world is gaining more traction. If you would like to learn about all of the ins and outs of window tinting technology, we welcome you to contact Tint Tech today at 1-403-968-8468.

You may be wondering whether there is any difference between tinting technology for car windows compared to commercial and residential (i.e., architectural) windows. The answer is both yes and no. Read on to learn more.

Concept – Where Auto and Architectural Tinting Overlap

Generally speaking, auto and architectural tinting are very similar. At a basic level, they both use window films to tint windows. In that regard, they share the same overarching purpose – to keep a car, office or home more comfortable.

Direct sunlight through a window can cause intense heat, accompanied by intense glare. As noted above, a plain, untinted window does not stop UV radiation from coming into a car, home or office. Sunlight can cause premature damage to furniture, art work, or other items in a home or office; and it can increase the pace of deterioration of a car’s dashboard and upholstery. Window tinting technology, either auto or architectural, is meant to protect against all of those issues.

In sum, auto and architectural window tinting shares the following benefits:

• Saves on Air Conditioning: Window tinting limits heat in the interior of the car, home, or office in hot weather, thereby reducing air conditioning costs;
• Saves on Heating Costs: Tinting reflects heat back into the car, home, or office in cold weather, thereby reducing heating costs;
• Avoids Fading: Window tinting keeps home furnishings and car upholstery from fading;
• Protects From Burglary: Certain types of safety window films can be several times thicker than standard sun-protective films, thereby reducing the chances of break-ins, property damage, damage from storms, and injury from shattered glass;
• Health Benefits: As noted earlier, window tinting can also protect against harmful UV rays that could lead to skin cancer. Both auto and architectural tints filter out virtually all harmful UV rays.

Composition – The Difference Between Auto and Architectural Tinting

While the concept of window tinting is the same whether we are dealing with auto or architectural window tinting, the composition is very different. Here are some of the major differences.

Designed to Shrink? The window tinting for car windows is specially designed to shrink to curved glass. The window film itself has an adhesive that will attach and hold fast to the glass to give it that seamless, wrinkle-less, smooth look that is the mark of professional tinting – no matter the curvature of the surface.

Architectural window tinting, on the other hand, will not shrink, and does not normally need to because of the flat surface of home or office windows. In fact, if you apply automotive tint to flat glass it may cause the flat glass to break because of the auto tint’s ability to shrink.

Absorbing vs. Reflecting the Sun. One interesting difference between auto tint and architectural tint is how the sun’s energy is handled. Auto tint actually absorbs the sun’s heat. What gets rid of that heat is the wind rush when the car is in motion. So, a car that is sitting in the hot sun will likely be a lot hotter inside with tinting – be careful my fellow drivers.

Architectural tint, by contrast, is designed to reflect the sun’s energy. By reflecting the energy, the sun’s heat is stopped at the tint, and the window does not get hot. That means that no motion or wind is needed to cool the window.

The reason for the difference between the types of tint is because legal restrictions limit the darkness of automotive tint for safety reasons. A tint that is too dark in a car can be impossible to see through at night. Accordingly, the reflective properties and darker tints available to architectural windows are simply not available to the window films used on automotive windows.

Metallic Materials. Adding metals to a window tint can greatly increase color stability and heat rejection. The driver of a car, however, utilizes a number of electronic gadgets – GPS system, cell phone, satellite radio, etc. – and is surrounded by glass. Accordingly, car window tints cannot have metallic materials in them because they will interfere with the electronics in the car. Car window tints, then, are engineered with dyes to partially or completely replace the metallic components. For that reason, car window tints suffer slightly from color stability and heat rejection.

Application – Always Get An Expert To Do Your Window Tinting

The one rule that both auto and architectural window tinting will always share is that you should get a professional to install it. At Tint Tech, we take enormous pride in our work. In Calgary, window tinting and window film are our specialty. To us, every car, home, or office window is treated as if it is our own.

That level of care is what makes us the ‘cream of the crop’ in the window tint industry. Our state-of-the-art protective film technology increases the security of your glass and adds privacy for car and home windows alike. Most importantly, our work results in a clean, attractive, lustrous look for any window. Call us today to learn more at 1-403-968-8468. Get ready to love the work we do for you.

ASA Insurance Announces the Future of Auto Insurance and Driverless Vehicles

In the past, it was expected that there would be no need for car insurance in Salt Lake City or elsewhere once autonomous vehicles were introduced to the road.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the past, it was expected that there would be no need for car insurance in Salt Lake City or elsewhere once autonomous vehicles were introduced to the road. However, there have been several reports of accidents involving driverless vehicles in the testing phase. This issue indicates a continued need for coverage through car insurance but in a different way. ASA Insurance sees growth potential for insurers that are willing to adapt and change.

The need for car insurance will continue, predicts ASA Insurance. Not everyone will be able to convert to a driverless car at the same time. Many will wait to see how the technology works in the real world while others will need to wait for the price to come down. Those who do purchase the driverless cars once they are approved for the road will need coverage for accidents that may not be their fault but the fault of the driverless technology. It may not be the car owner who needs to purchase a policy but the manufacturers or dealers who build and sell the vehicles. This opens up a new opportunity for insurers who can create new insurance products quickly.

"Autonomous cars will be more expensive to insure," predicts Creed Anderson of ASA Insurance, an independent agency that provides auto insurance in Salt Lake City. "Damage to sensors will increase the expenses of repairing the vehicle." This situation can already be seen where there are backup cameras and parking systems in place. The costs to repair these vehicles is significantly more than it is for older cars that don’t have this technology.

The changes to insurance policies for autonomous vehicles may be beneficial to both the insurance provider and the insured. Instead of the driver paying for more insurance, some experts predict it will fall to the manufacturer. This means premiums may go down or at least stay the same for the driver while the insurance provider can charge more to the manufacturer for coverage of defects. As more technology is added to vehicles today, it is easy to see where autonomous cars will become a normal part of traffic in the future. Predictions continue that these vehicles may be on the road in just a few years. However, regulations must still be decided for these vehicles and the technology is not quite there for full autonomy. On the other hand, more new technology is continually being developed and added to the cars already on the road to partner with the driver for improved safety.

The process may be taking longer than predicted 10 years ago, but it is still moving forward for the introduction of driverless cars. The question is more of when rather than if they will make it to the general public. One thing is certain: accidents can still happen no matter who or what is in control of the wheel and the need for insurance will not go away with the change.

Knight Investment Limited China Automotive Market Update – July

Brilliance China Automotive Holdings

Knight Investment looks at the massive Chinese Automotive Industry, Key Players, Partnerships and Where the Luxury Electric Vehicle (EV) Sector is Heading.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, July 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brilliance China Automotive Holdings Limited (HK: 1114)

Brilliance China, one of the country’s largest automotive manufactures is a prime example of how east and west businesses can work together in harmony. Its latest agreement with BWM strengthens its ties to the European car maker and helps it expand its EV segments in production and design with its collaboration with BAIC Group.

The BMW Group with its partner Brilliance Automotive Group Holdings signed a long-term framework agreement to further expand their joint venture BMW Brilliance Automotive (BBA). BBA is increasing the capacity of its two local production facilities Tiexi and Dadong in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, to a total of 520,000 BMW brand vehicles in 2019. Furthermore, the all-electric BMW iX to be produced by BBA—the first BMW brand model to be driven purely by electric power—is planned for export to markets outside of China.

Around 560,000 BMW brand vehicles were delivered to customers in China in 2017—more than in the next two largest markets, the US and Germany, combined. Two-thirds of all BMW vehicles sold in China were produced by BBA last year.

Local production of the new BMW X3 in China started in May as scheduled and the ramp-up in the second half of the year is expected to further accelerate growth in the world’s largest automotive market. The BMW X3 is the sixth BMW model localized in China.

In addition to the two automobile production locations, BBA also runs an engine plant, which includes a battery factory for the electrified BMW brand vehicles produced locally in Shenyang. This is the first battery factory operated by a premium automobile manufacturer in China.
Local production of the BMW iX3, the first all-electric core model of the BMW brand, will start in 2020 in Shenyang. The BMW iX3 is also intended for export to markets outside of China.

With this news also comes confirmation of another partnership, this time in the New Energy Vehicle (NEV) sector. Brilliance Auto recently signed a deal with the BAIC Group, according to the agreement, the two companies will cooperate in areas such as NEVs for use as government cars, taxis, private cars, and express logistics vehicles. The two companies will also share their resources in terms of product development, charging facilities, and capital operation.

They will set up a joint venture for more intense cooperation.

Xu Heyi, chairman of BAIC Group, said the cooperation is in response to the country's auto industry policies and state-owned company reforms.

The cooperation is expected to boost NEV industry development and inject new impetus into the economic growth of northeast China, said Qi Yumin, chairman of Brilliance Auto.

“Given the Chinese government’s commitment to non-fossil fueled vehicles, it makes sense that Brilliance Auto’s would look to expand within the NEV and EV markets. When you have the likes of BMW and Tesla looking to China to capture greater market share, they need companies like Brilliance to help them transition.” Charles Bachman – Senior Advisor, Knight Investment Limited

Telsa, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA)

Tesla Inc. notably the worlds most recognizable EV maker has increased its prices in mainland China in direct response to trade tariffs imposed by China in retaliation to the US.

The car maker has seen China as a key destination for its vehicles as the country made up for 17% of its profits last year. The tariffs were initially expected to not affect the electric car maker however until its new factory in Shanghai is completed Tesla still needs to import its vehicles into the country.

This comes after a price reduction in May where it slashed up to $14,000 off its Model X in China after Beijing announced major tariff cuts for imported automobiles, but the new tariffs have now erased that.

A basic Model S sedan now costs about 849,900 yuan ($128,779) up from 710,579 in May, while a Model X sport-utility vehicle costs about 927,200 yuan now, versus 775,579 yuan in May, according to its website. At roughly 20% the increase shouldn’t discourage most Chinese buyers as the Tesla range and brand is seen as a luxury item, still attractive to the Chinese rich and still an aspiration to the expanding middle-class.

In 2017 the company installed over 1,000 supercharging stations in China and plans to double that by the end of 2018. The continued expansion and commitment to its Chinese plans promises to pay dividends, especially once the Shanghai plant is opened and the cheaper more affordable Model 3 is unveiled on the mainland. With a capacity of 15,000 vehicles per month expected to roll out of the new factory, not being subject to tariffs will enable the company to return to competitively priced vehicles across the range.
