Ceramic window tints are the perfect window protection. It’s among the most economical and effective window tints available on the market today. Window tints not only blocks light but also absorbs some heat as well. Ideal choice for people who not only desire privacy but are not bothered about visible UV light or heat rejection.

One of the most common types of ceramic window tint blocks UVA, UVB and all other harmful sunlight and heat penetration.
Some ceramic window tint films are made with special coatings that increase its heat rejection and reduce some of its visibility. One popular type of this kind of film is called para-urethane. It is a clear plastic film, approximately 0.35 inches thick. Para-urethane has a glossy metallic finish that reflects and slows the transfer of heat from the sun. However, it does not block all the sunlight.
Another type of film used to reduce heat reflection is called quantum reflectors. These films contain small holes. When ultraviolet rays hit them, some of them reflect them back, while others bounce back most of the heat. This reduces the heat reflection to almost zero, which makes them ideal for residential rooms like kitchens, baths and basements.
Yet another type of film used for heat control is polyester film. It is a thick clear plastic film that provides excellent coverage. It can reduce the glare on the driver’s side in front of the car by more than 50%.
All these different types of tinting have their own advantages and disadvantages. Certain films may be better for certain climates. Some can help you avoid glare when driving, depending on what is needed. Some types of window films work better in certain locations, while others are better for others. Some types of heat insulation are better for certain climates. All these things should be considered when choosing what type of ceramic window tinting is best for your car.
The heat reflective property of many of the ceramic window tinting films means that they are better for reducing glare from headlights. However, the best films for headlight protection are the flat type of films with a high reflectivity. These films are called sputtered films. These have a good reflectivity rating of over 95%, so they are the best at controlling headlight glare. Other types of heat-resistant ceramic films are available, including the heat reflective vinyl films, but they are not as popular because they are more expensive and harder to install.

If you have such a source of light entering your home, you might be better off replacing your windows with frosted acrylic or frosted plexi glass window tints instead of using the carbonated ones.
