No... The glass used in a vehicle is not the same as glass used on a property. There are major differences in how automotive and flat glass film/tint are constructed. Automotive film/tint are meant to absorb energy, that is why the windows get very hot and become heat radiators when a car is parked. As the vehicle drives down the road heat is pulled from the glass through a process known as convection. Buildings on the other hand are stationary and using automotive film could make the glass absorb too much heat, leading to thermal fractures and breakage. Flat glass film/tint purge heat by reflecting energy preventing the energy/heat from being absorbed and actively reducing it.
