IR Camera: Window Tint Tested

It's amazing given all the affordable tech available these days, how few people are curious enough to actually test things, instead of going by 'what always worked' etc.

Since I do my own tinting and my van has two identical rear windows side by side, I figured I owe it to my own curiosity and Ecomodder to test my window tint for myself.

Here are the specs for my lifetime guarantee USA made film (I think Johnson & Johnson brand).

UV Rejected 99%
Visible Light Transmittance 20%
Visible Light Reflected- Exterior 5%
Visible Light Reflected- Interior 5%
Total Solar Energy Rejected 58%

Conditions, sunny winters day 15*C ambient, taken at midday (rear windows facing north).

Interior/Exterior Glass surface temperatures:

Black MDF shelves left inside to simulate a dash board etc:

So an 8*C temp reduction for about a $50 investment
