Windshield UV blocking specs?

Glass, in general, blocks UVB. Believe windshields in the US are made with laminations of glass and plastic. The glass blocks UVB, and the plastic often blocks most (believe 98%) of the UVA. Windows don't have the plastic so they don't block the UVA.

Thanks for the info. When I dropped the car off this morning they said that the Tesla already has some tinting in the windshield. If I added any of their products I'd go over the legal tinting limit in Texas. So that made the decision easy.

Actually you can add Suntek or 3M Crystalline film installed on windshield...search the forums...I have mine installed and it is clear so no tinting issues
