You might think that having tinted windows on your vehicle is all about looking cool. In reality, it’s more about keeping cool and protecting the interior of your car from the damaging rays of the sun.
Ceramic films that incorporate advanced nano ceramic technology rather than more traditional metallic particles or dyes are the newest thing in window films. They’re available for use on building and automotive windows. Ceramic window films are made by sandwiching a layer of advanced ceramics about one thousandth the diameter of a human hair between layers of optically clear polyester film.
The main advantage of ceramic films is they can block a lot of the heat producing infrared radiation from the sun without reducing visibility through a window. That means they can be used on car windows, including the windshield, without reducing night time visibility like a dark tinted window will.
You know how hot a car can get on a sunny day – dangerously hot, in fact. Ceramic window films can reject up to 80% of heat producing infrared light, and 99% of the UV rays that can cause skin cancer. With ceramic window film, your car will stay cooler and you’ll need to use the a/c less. You’ll also notice less fading and cracking of the upholstery and interior. If you spend a lot of time in your car, ceramic window tint will help to protect your skin from sun damage.
Ceramic window films can also be used to reduce daytime heating from the sun in your home, reducing the need to run air conditioning to regulate the interior temperature. They also prevent furniture and window coverings from fading. Since ceramic films can be almost clear, they block infrared light without blocking your view.
