Types of Window Tinting Film

Tinting your car windows is a great way to keep the sun out of your eyes and prevent glare. But tint film is also a great way to improve the appearance of your vehicle.

There are many different types of car tint film available. In this article we’ll explore what they all look like, as well as how they can affect the performance and safety of your vehicle.

Dyed window film

Dyed window film is one of the most common types of tint film. It’s also known as “tinting,” and it changes the color of your car windows from clear to tinted or colored. The change is permanent, so you won’t have to worry about changing back after installation.

The good news: dyed window films alter colors without darkening the glass itself (which can cause glare and distort visibility). This makes them great for privacy because you won’t see through them like regular sunglasses would do; however, they don’t block out UV rays as well as darker shades do—so if you want extra protection against heat damage while driving then this type may not be right for you!

If there’s one major downside with this type of tinting material it’s its price tag—usually costing upwards $500 per car window. Another downside is that most U.S. tint laws prohibit using colored vehicle window tint – for details on this you should check your state laws carefully as we have this information for every state.

Metallic window film

Metallic window film is a type of window tint that has a metallic appearance. It’s available in a variety of colors and patterns, including metallic silver, black, gold and bronze. The reflective properties of this type of film can help reduce glare while also providing privacy from outside light sources. Metallic film can also be added to the body of vehicles.

Metallic window film can be used to change the appearance of your car by adding additional protection against road debris or raindrops that could otherwise damage your vehicle’s finish or windshield wipers. This type of tint also protects against UV rays from streetlights so you don’t have to worry about cracked paint or fading on your car’s bodywork after long drives at night—or even just driving down highway with little traffic!

It’s crucial to remember that nearly every state has tint laws prohibiting metallic or reflecting appearance, either completely or up to a certain degree of reflectivity. Consult our state laws to learn the regulations for your state.

Ceramic window film

Ceramic window film is a high quality film that has a metallic appearance, making it appear as if your vehicle’s windows are made of metal. The durability of this type of tinting material makes it perfect for any high-traffic areas or vehicles in cold climates.

This type of window film also has the added benefit of being easy to clean and maintain over time, which makes it an excellent choice for those looking for long-term protection from the elements without sacrificing style or brightness.

Carbon fiber window film

Carbon fiber window film is made from real carbon fiber, which gives it the strength and lightweight properties of the material. This makes it scratch resistant and easy to clean; when you need to wipe down your car after a drive in the rain or snow, all you have to do is run some water over it!

Carbon fiber window film can be applied to both interior and exterior surfaces of your vehicle. It’s also available in various shades so that you can match any color scheme or style preference—from matte black through various hues of browns and greens, there’s an option for everyone!
