Different Types of Window Tints and Their Uses

car tintsWindow tints have become quite a necessity because of all the health risks associated with prolonged exposure to the sun. There are many choices available, whether you want tinting for your car, home, or commercial establishment – there is a film that fits every bill. The choice depends entirely on your budgetary constraints and preferences.

Here’s a look at some of the car window tinting Adelaide residents can get from local suppliers:

Colored or Dyed Films

Cars and outdoor recreational vehicles like boats are constantly under the sun and absorb all its heat. The high levels of exposure to the sun’s rays is why tinting is important for cars and watercraft. More than just protection, tint also ensures privacy by decreasing visibility from the outside looking in.

Films Treated with Metals

Metalized films (predominantly nickel, aluminum and copper) have an innate ability to reflect heat during hot summers and are predominantly used for domestic and official establishments. Also called sputtered films, these help keep heat inside during colder seasons. The metals are inserted into the film during the creation process, on an atomic level to ensure a uniform distribution of metal across the entire tinted film.

Hybrid Films

These films use tint on metal coated films which are best used to derive combination benefits of metalized and dyed films. Despite its being a lighter tint, these films combine the effects of reflection and absorption and transform the sun’s energy into ambient heat.

Ceramic Tint Films

These films apply the concept of nanotechnology and have made a foray into the window tinting arena. Considering how they are fairly new to the market, these are a considerably more expensive option compared to other choices. Ceramic tint films reduce the amount of visibility distortions found in colored or dyed films and strengthen the surface of the glass on which they are installed. They also demonstrate resilience in the form of break resistance.

Whatever type of film you choose to place on window surfaces, the point is that you are making an effort to protect yourself from the many risks associated with sun exposure.
