It adds a touch of elegance to any car to install the right window tint for it. Not only that, this can help you and your passengers to get the right shade from the sun’s glare which basically lowers the car’s internal temperature. This cover protects the car’s leather and upholstery from cracking and fading due to summer heat.
Just before you decide to add window tint to your car, you have to know the different types of tint that you can buy in the market.
Dyed film – the first type of tinting that you can get is dyed window film. This kind of window tint is manufactured by putting a layer of dye right next to the adhesive and applying it to glass. Depending on the shade, this style can block around 50 percent of light entering your car. It is reducing the fade from sun significantly, block unwanted glare from headlights and non-reflective as well.
Ceramic film – in this kind of film, it is somewhat a new idea that consists of adhesive layer and top coat while having thin layer of ceramic in middle part allowing it to block 70 percent of light. Ceramic films don’t fade over time and can block UV rays and light glares. This is perfect for blocking heat and allows radio signals to pass through. But due to its remarkable features, it comes for a slightly higher price than other options available in the market.
Metalized film – metalized window tints use different metal layers that blocks heat and UV light. As a matter of fact, this is one of the darkest solutions you can purchase on the market, making it illegal in some states. On the other hand, assuming that this is legal to the state where you are in, it can block 60 to 90 percent of heat and light. It effectively blocks glares but is reflective.
Hybrid film – this has a bit of metal and dyed option for car window tint. As a matter of fact, there are four layers of this version and these are adhesive layer, metalized layer, dyed layer and top coat. This is known to reflect heat, blocks glare, reduce fading and of course, blocks 50 percent of light at the same time.
It isn’t as reflective as fully metalized versions but, it is not blocking cell phone or radio signals.
Car window tints have different types and depending on your specific preferences will set your decision of which one to buy. So to ensure that you’re making the right purchase, might as well want to take a pause on which one is really for you.
