CHAMELEON TINTS MANCHESTER
CHAMELEON TINTS MANCHESTER
Chameleon tints are a tint for your vehicle’s front windscreen that gives a chameleon-like effect. The popular trend is different to a regular window tint, as it is not one solid colour like ordinary window tints. Chameleon tint contains coloured dyes which generate a gradient of purple, green or blue.
These colours change when the vehicle is moving, or depending on the weather, lighting or angle of view. This gives the ‘Chameleon’ effect, as the tinted windows appear to change colours, depending on outdoor conditions.
An elegant upgrade to your car, you can apply the Chameleon tint yourself, or you can have a Chameleon tint professionally fitted to your vehicle windows.

WHY CHAMELEON TINTS?
Our Chameleon tint looks stylish, modern and attention-grabbing. If it is a bright day with fluffy clouds in the sky, this will be reflected in your window tints!
The reflective film inside the Chameleon tint prevents vision through the glass, affording the driver and passengers a level of comfort that they won’t find in non-tinted cars.
The darkened glass from the Chameleon tint makes it harder for thieves to gain access to your car to steal any items you store inside.
Shade from the sun and protection from damaging Ultra Violet Rays
The film in our Chameleon tint blocks 99% of UV Rays. This is ideal for individuals with sensitivity to sunlight or skin diseases. Too much UV radiation emitted from the sun damages the DNA in our skin cells, which can lead to skin cancer.
Sunlight, flood lights and oncoming traffic headlights can be very distracting for drivers. The Chameleon tint reduces the blinding impact of this lighting, helping you to concentrate better on the road.
Our Chameleon tint offers 80% Infrared (IR) Heat Rejection. The tint keeps out the sun’s UV rays, meaning the driver and passengers will stay cooler and more comfortable in the vehicle.
If the windscreen glass gets shattered in an accident, the Chameleon tint holds the glass together.
Protection for your vehicle’s interiors
As it blocks the sun’s rays, a Chameleon tint prevents your dashboard and upholstery from sun damage. Copious amounts of sunlight can cause the leather in your car interiors to discolour and crack.
Chameleon tints are a bit like a mirrored windscreen, much like a mirror you have in your bathroom, but it is not a mirror at all.
Nor are they metallic, as they need to provide a clear view for the driver inside the vehicle. The tinted window screen will reflect back what is seen.
But since your front window is angled upwards, it will reflect back at you what it sees in the sky. The colours you see in your windows may vary depending on the weather for the day, and how bright or cloudy the sky is.
Air temperature can also affect the tinting film, and even the angle that you are viewing the window from. This is why it’s called chameleon, as it has properties that can change depending on outdoor conditions.
Chameleon windscreen tints were originally created by the more prestigious automobile brands for looks, as well as to provide protection from the sun’s glare.
Chameleon windscreen tints also provide that same sun glare protection. This window film is manufactured in the USA, shipped to the UK, and offers 99% blockage of harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun.
Besides the aesthetics, a driver and passengers can enjoy a more comfortable ride in the vehicle, as well as protection from sunburn or harmful skin diseases.
Currently, on offer, Aqua Blue or Cadbury Purple are the standard chameleon window tinting Manchester options for your vehicle.
So even if the skies aren’t blue that day, a bright blue or purple-blue shade will be reflected back in your window tinting. This shade is certainly attention-getting. There may be more colours on the way too!
When a car has a Chameleon tint on the front windscreen, it doesn’t affect the driver’s view. The driver will be able to see the road clearly from the driving seat, as normal. But the tinted window will reflect what is seen.
Because the windscreen is angled upwards, it will reflect what it sees in the sky. The colours you see in your tinted windows will vary, depending on the weather or how bright or cloudy the sky is.

CHAMELEON TINTS FAQ
Yes, as long as you meet the legal requirements, your Chameleon tint is legal for the road. By UK law, front windscreens must allow at least 75% of its light through, while front side windows must let in at least 70% of the light.
It is illegal to fit or sell glass that breaks the rules on tinted windows. It is also illegal to sell a vehicle already fitted with glass that breaks the rules.
The police or the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) vehicle examiners can pull you over and inspect your vehicle’s window tint using light measuring equipment. You could face a penalty if your car windscreen or windows are incorrectly tinted.
If a car’s tinted windows do not adhere to the legal limit, they will restrict the view of the driver, thus risking the safety of the driver and passengers. Having excessively dark windows will also pose a danger for other road users and pedestrians, who won’t be able to see the driver properly through the tinted windows.
The law requires your car’s front side windows to allow at least 70% of the light, while the front windscreen must let in at least 75% of its light through.
A Chameleon tint lets in 70% of light, which is within the legal limit- so it won’t cause you to fail your MOT test.
However, if you pass an MOT test, don’t just assume that your window tints are legal, especially if you installed them yourself. You should always check that your window tints are within the legal requirements.
You will fail your MOT test if there is too much tint on your vehicle windows.

Tell your insurance company that you have window tints, as this counts as a modification to your car. If you need to make an insurance claim but you haven’t told your insurance provider that you have tinted windows, you may not be eligible for compensation.
Immediately after the Chameleon tint has been applied, don’t open and close the windows for about 10 days, as the tint could still be wet. You need to allow some time, so that the tint can set properly.
Avoid cleaning your tinted windows right away, as the tint needs time to dry and adhere to your window surface.
- Clean your tinted windows regularly. You can hand clean them, use a jet wash, or take your car to a car wash facility.
- Never scrub your windows harshly. Instead, use a soft cloth to wipe away dirt.
- Never use cleaning products or disinfectant wipes that contain alcohol or harsh chemicals such as ammonia. These will damage the film in your tinted windows and reduce the clarity.
- Use a spray that is specially formulated for cleaning car windows. Don’t spray it directly onto the car windows; spray it directly onto the cloth.
- Don’t use paper towels to clean or dry your tinted windows. These will leave tiny fibres all over, which are annoying and difficult to remove.
- Avoid continually touching your tinted windows with your hands, as this will leave streaks and smudges.
You may decide to remove your Chameleon tint if the film becomes damaged and needs replacing.
