Learn More About Ceramic Tint at Dynamic Appearance!
Getting window tint for your car or truck is one of the first options people choose to get done on their new vehicle. Who wants to drive around with strangers seeing your every move inside your vehicle? So it is no shock that the main reason people purchase window tint is to make their windows darker, giving them more privacy and a sense of security. We are shocked that most consumers still don't know there are other benefits to adding a window film. Window tint shops are partially to blame for this since there are so many that don't take the time to explain the differences in tint. When you ask them a price, they simply give you a price for their entry-level option. There is also so much misinformation online about window tint mainly posted on forums by non-tinters that are simply sharing what they heard or believe to be true. Then the next person comes along, reads their incorrect information, and repeats it to others assuming it is facts. Today, we want to talk about Ceramic Window Tint to help educate consumers so they can make the best choice possible and to correct some misinformation seen online.
What is Ceramic Window Tint?
A standard dyed window film or entry-level as mentioned above is only good for making your windows darker and to add UV protection. It is great for consumers looking to improve the appearance of their vehicle, add privacy, and to protect their interior from the sun while keeping the cost as low as possible. Unlike these films, Ceramic takes it a step further by blocking out heat from the sun which keeps your vehicle cooler allowing your a/c to work more efficiently, and to give you a more comfortable drive. To do this, the film is imbued with small, ceramic-based nanoparticles which results in nano-Ceramic technology. Thanks to this technology, the overall heat spectrum from the sun along with Infrared heat, which is the heat you feel since it penetrates the skin further, can be greatly reduced inside of your vehicle. Once you have ridden in a vehicle with a Ceramic tint, you will not want that entry-level film anymore.
Are all Ceramic Films Equal?
You would think so but the answer is no. Some consumers that have learned about Ceramic will be quick to jump on a low price quote from a shop. However, just like with all window films, there are more cheap, poor quality Ceramic options on the market than good ones. How do you pick a good one? You have to look for red flags when talking to or getting quotes from tint shops. First, if the quote they provided is much lower than other competitors, it is most likely due to them carrying a cheaper film that doesn't cost them much to buy. High-quality window film costs more money, so the more expensive shop could be paying 3x the amount for their film. There is also a much higher risk of cheap Ceramic films to bubble, fade or turn purple...we have seen certain brands fail in less than a year. Second, if they do not mention the brand of film they carry on their website or when you speak to them. This is actually common since they are not proud of the brand they carry or they do not want you to research the brand online possibly discovering reviews from customers complaining about it failing. I tell customers if unsure, ask the tint shop to show you the boxes of window film. If they flat out refuse, you need to go to another shop cause you can't get a bigger red flag than that. If they do let you see the boxes, look for the brand logo on it so you can research it. If the boxes are generic with no logos, you will have no clue what film they have in there much less what they will be putting on your vehicle. This too would be a go to another shop moment. It is simple, if they are carrying a premium Ceramic film, you will know it because will be proud to tell you.
Do all Ceramic Films Block the Same Amount of Heat?
That will be another no. Just like buying a sports car, different models are faster than others...the same applies to Ceramic film. When looking at the specs of Ceramic film, you will want to look for the TSER and SIRR ratings to give you a clear picture of which films outperform others. TSER is the total amount of solar energy that the window film blocks which includes all forms of heat from the sun. SIRR is the total amount of infrared heat that is not directly transmitted through the glass of your vehicle. Even though TSER gives a more complete picture, SIRR is important since infrared rays penetrate the skin deeper allowing you to feel that specific type of heat more. Blocking out a high amount of IR is important since it will make you feel more comfortable while driving since the burning on your skin will be less.
