What Is Car Tint?

The film helps to reduce the amount of sunlight and UV rays that can enter the car, which helps to protect the vehicle’s interiorfrom damage. It also helps maintain temperature in the hot summer months and protects passengers for harmful UV rays.

Types of car tint

Dyed Window Tint: An affordable option, dyed window tint is crafted by infusing dye into the adhesive layer. This type of tint offers UV and heat protection while enhancing privacy due to its opaque nature. However, it’s worth noting that its sun-blocking efficiency may wane over time.

Metallized Tint: This variant incorporates minuscule metallic particles, which fortify the window and curtail UV and heat penetration. Its durability and scratch-resistance outshine dyed tint, but the metallic content could disrupt cell phone and GPS signals.

Carbon Window Tint: This metal-free tint excels in UV and infrared protection, glare reduction, and upholstery fade prevention. It’s signal-friendly and boasts a long-lasting resistance to fading.

Ceramic Tint: Although pricier, ceramic tint is the premium choice for comprehensive UV and heat protection without compromising signal quality. It stands out for its durability, glare resistance, and fade-proof properties.

Crystalline Tint: This high-end, virtually clear tint offers unmatched UV and infrared heat protection while maintaining your vehicle’s original appearance. Despite its higher cost, it’s the go-to choice for those seeking inconspicuous protection.
