If you’ve been thinking about tinting your car windows, you need to first decide what you want to benefit from it. This is because different window films serve different purposes including glare reduction, heat protection, fade protection, UV protection, safety, aesthetics, privacy, and also to go green. Here’s what each one is all about.
DYED TINTING This doesn’t contain metal so it results in a dark colour close to black. Mainly used for appearances, it has the least amount of heat reduction. However, it reduces glare and prevents upholstery from fading. HYBRID TINTING Hybrid tinting film contains combined dye and metal, giving it a higher ability of transferring heat. It’s a premium dark grey film and is perfect if you want heat and glare reduction, and fade and UV protection. CARBON TINTING Carbon tints give you the look of a dyed tint but the performance of a hybrid tint. It blocks 40 per cent of the infrared heat that comes in through your windows. CERAMIC TINTING A new film design and tinting technique, ceramic films block twice the amount of heat compared to dyed or hybrid film. Grey in colour, you’ll get the ultimate heat reduction with this.
Get superior clarity, performance, and a premium look with this! It features multilayer film technology that combines over 200 layers of film that is thinner than a piece of paper. It rejects up to 97 per cent of the sun’s heat but still allows up to 90 per cent of light into your car.
