A lot of people know about window tinting and different kinds of films that can be installed on the windows of cars, buildings, homes, and boats. The most frequently used materials to tint or film windows that people are familiar with include polyesters, dyes and metal. However, an increasingly popular option that is being used more and more is ceramic window tint. Some wonder how it’s possible 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 film.
What Exactly Is 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. As a result, you have a ceramic window tint that is completely clear, allowing a greater level of visibility both during the day and the night. On top of that, it is tougher and more durable.
Benefits of Ceramic Window Tint
While the benefits are similar to the benefits of conventional film, there are added benefits that come with the installation of ceramic window tint.
Because other types of film tend to have their color fade over time, they look less appealing with long-term wear. This is issue is fixed with ceramic window tint.
Blocks Infrared Light:
Infrared light is a type of wavelength that’s part of the everyday spectrum of waves that we are bombarded with on a daily basis. 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 significantly blocks infrared rays that penetrate windows. This causes a reduction in solar heat, leaving the interior feeling cooler.
Blocks UV Rays:
Ceramic window tint blocks approximately 99% of the UV rays that penetrate windows. UV rays are light rays that are harmful to the skin and can contribute to wrinkling, sun damage and the development of skin cancer. This is one the most important health benefits of ceramic film.
No Metal Involved:
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, is allows for the maximal efficacy of the functioning of electronic devices.
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.
