Window tinting is divided into five types:


Window tinting is simple to apply. It is a few steps. If you choose the DIY approach tints aren't only simple to install, but they are also cost-effective and attractive to improve the quality of your windows, and also protect the interior of your car. Check out the different types of window tints to determine which is best for your needs.


  • Tint to windows has been dyed


Most people use tinted films with colored colors on their windows to enhance the appearance rather than for utility. The tint is dyed and has dark black shades that are opaque on the outside will give your vehicle the darkest appearance.


A tinted window that has been dyed contains an ink layer of dye between the adhesive layer and the protective polyester top coating. The sticky side bonds to the glass, while the topcoat shields the window from scratches. The color will fade with UV exposure. It may change from black to purple. The best way to slow the process of fading is to put your vehicle in a garage, away from direct sunlight.


  • Tint for metalized windows


You'd expect a metalized window tint. The film is thicker due to the fact that metallic particles are embedded within the. The film is composed of an adhesive layer that adheres to the window of your car, along with a UV-treated and metallic layer that radiates heat back into the glass. The final coating protects against scratches and cracks.


Metalized tint film, made from multiple layers reflects heat from the sun and keeps it away from your vehicle while protecting your interior. The glass is strengthened by the metallic components within the layers, which makes it more robust and resistant to breaking. Additionally, it gives it an attractive exterior look.


  • Window Tint (Hybrid)


The hybrid film is a combination of dyed and metalized hues, giving you the best of both worlds and getting rid of the disadvantages -which is a win-win! The adhesive layer that sticks to the glass is the first layer of the window tint. A colored and metalized layer and a protective topcoat to stop scrapes from entering the film.


The most common misconception is that films with darker colors reject more heat. Hybrid films differ. Hybrid film is lighter than tints with single colors that effectively block heat. The hybrid film provides all the advantages of a dyed or metalized film but without the drawbacks.


  • Window Tint using carbon


Carbon window tints are dark and matt in appearance. They also have a sleek appearance. Infrared light is prevented from reaching inside your car by hundreds of microlayers composed of carbon and polymer. Carbon tints can help lessen the harmful effects of UV rays on the leather seats as well as other upholstery materials.


Tint helps protect your upholstery from infrared light and keeps them from entering your interior. The interior of your vehicle is also kept cool thanks to carbon layers. In the summer months, you don't have to run your air conditioner full blast, and in the winter, you won't have to crank up the heat.


The film will not affect the technology or other components of your vehicle since it doesn't contain any metallic material within its layers. Window tints made of carbon are stronger than colored films and last longer.


  • Ceramic Tint for Windows


Ceramic film is by far the best quality window tint film, compared to the other four options when choosing the type of tint you want to install in your car. It is however the most costly.


It's composed of ceramic particles which are nonconductive and nonmetallic instead of dye, metal, or carbon. These particles reflect sunlight as well as ultraviolet rays, which decrease their penetration into vehicles. It allows for optimal visibility and absorbs large amounts of light. Ceramic hues are shatter-resistant as well as resistant to glare and fading.
