Let me clarify, I was not talking about tinted glass but putting tinted or clear UV barrier film on laminated glass.
I've had it done on many, many boats over the years and seen only one window shatter that had film on it. And I can't say with 100% certainty that it was the film that was the cause.
Heat is one of the issues and some films retain/transfer more heat than others.
