TYPES OF AUTOMOTIVE TINT AVAILABLE

There are four types of window tint; hybrid, metalized, carbon and ceramic. Each is named after the primary component used to protect you from over exposure to the sun.

Hybrid Films

Main Qualities: Heat Reduction, Glare Reduction, UV Protection.

Description: Hybrid Films use a combination of a dyed layer as well as a metalized layer. A metal layer is used for its reflective qualities and a dyed layer is used for its absorptive qualities and to mitigate the shiny quality of the metal layer. Hybrid tinting films are generally considered to be a premium film. It is the film most often used when customers don’t specify what kind of tint they desire. This film is a good product for customers that desire crisp appearance, heat reduction, glare reduction and UV protection.

Metalized Films

Main Qualities: Reflective Mirror Appearance, Heat Reduction.

Description: Metalized Films are either all metal or have a single layer of ceramics. Metalized window tinting is very good at reducing heat; however they are very shiny and can cause interference with radio, GPS and cell phones. Its shade and colour are mainly determined by the type of metal used to make it. Metalized window films reflect more light than they absorb creating higher heat rejection. Metalized window films tend to be shinier due to the reflective qualities of the metal used giving them a polarized or mirror appearance.

Carbon Films

Main Qualities: True Black Appearance, Fade Resistant, Heat Reduction, Glare Reduction, UV Protection.

Description: Carbon Film is the first colour-stable film. Carbon film is constructed with a patented Nano-Carbon technology. This means the film derives its colour from carbon material which never fades. Carbon tint is a true black film that does not have the "mirror look" that the metalized films have. Lifetime Warranty that guarantees this film will NEVER fade or turn purple. Outstanding heat, glare, fade, and UV protection. No metal layers to interfere with radio, GPS and cell phones.

Ceramic Films

Main Qualities: Heat Reduction, UV Protection, Infra-Red Reduction, Light Shading.

Description: Ceramic Films absorb twice as much heat as dyed or hybrid films. It is colour stable and considered to be the most technologically advanced type of window tinting due to its dual Ultra-Violet and Infra-Red reduction. It is capable of high heat absorption yet still retaining relative light shading. It is definitely the ultimate in heat reduction. This film is good for customers desiring a highly durable material, with excellent clarity, and providing superior heat reduction versus other film choices.
