Window tinting can have multiple benefits for you and your vehicle. The most commonly known materials to tint windows with include polyesters, dyes and metal. However, an increasingly popular option that is being used more and more is ceramic window tint. This may seem strange because ceramics are used to make completely opaque objects such as ceramic artwork, electrical conductors and optics. However this new technology has proven to be the best quality of window tint.
About Ceramic Window Tint
Ceramic window tint is a type of tinting film that can be applied to any kind of window. Unlike other films, it is not made of metal nor is it dyed to be a darker shade. This means that this film is both non-metal and does not conduct. Instead, the it is imbued with small, ceramic-based nanoparticles. Since these particles are so small, they are actually not visible to the naked eye. This allows for a ceramic window tint that is completely clear, allowing a greater level of visibility both during the day and the night.
What are the Advantages of Ceramic Window Tint?
While the benefits are similar to those of conventional film, there are added benefits that come with ceramic window tint.
Because other types of film tend to have their color fade over time, they look less appealing with long-term wear. Ceramic window tint will look like new for a long time.
Blocks Ultraviolet Rays:
Ceramic window tint blocks about 99% of the UV rays that penetrate windows. UV rays are are harmful to the skin and can contribute to wrinkling, sun damage and the development of skin cancer.
Blocks Infrared Light:
Infrared light is a type of wavelength that’s part of the everyday spectrum of waves that we are hit with with each day. This type of electromagnetic radiations is not visible to the naked eye, but is perceived by human as is the ray that causes the feeling of heat. Ceramic window tint greatly assists in blocking infrared rays that penetrate windows. This causes a reduction in solar heat, leaving the interior feeling cooler.
Many metal-based films interfere with the functioning of electronic devices such as GPS systems, cellphones and radios by blocking or disrupting the radio and electronic waves that help these devices to function. Because ceramic window tint is completely metal-free, it allows for the max efficiency of the of electronic devices.
Helps Prevents Glare:
Because of the technology by which ceramic window tint is made, there is a massive reduction in the amount of reflection and glare caused by this film. The science behind it is the ability of the ceramic particles to absorb light rays, preventing penetration and reducing glare.
This type of film is shatterproof, meaning that in the event of an accident or damage to the window, the glass shards will break but remain fixed in place, making this a safer option to the available alternatives.
