Enter the VLT of the window tint (%) and the VLT of the original glass (%) into the Tint Percentage Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Tint Percentage. 

Tint Percentage Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Tint Percentage.

TP = VLTt/100 * VLTg/100 * 100

Variables:

  • TP is the Tint Percentage (%)
  • VLTt is the VLT of the window tint (%) 
  • VLTg is the VLT of the original glass (%) 

How to Calculate Tint Percentage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Tint Percentage.


  1. First, determine the VLT of the window tint (%). 
  2. Next, determine the VLT of the original glass (%). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TP = VLTt/100 * VLTg/100 * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Tint Percentage.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

VLT of the window tint (%) = 10

VLT of the original glass (%) = 80

TP = VLTt/100 * VLTg/100 * 100 = ?
