If you’ve been looking at ceramic coating, where you can access this service and its benefits, you might have also been considering ceramic tinting. Ceramic tint, or ceramic window tint, is a ceramic-infused window tint product that provides vehicle owners with all manner of benefits.

When the time comes to begin exploring your vehicle upgrade options, it’s worth learning as much as possible about ceramic tints. By doing so, you can make an informed decision about whether this vehicle upgrade option is right for you. 

What Is Ceramic Tint? 

Ceramic tint is a multi-layered film that professionals like Masterpiece Auto Appearance can apply to your vehicle windows. While similar in its looks to standard window tint products, this film contains microscopic ceramic particles that block almost 99.9% of UVA and UVB rays due to its nonconductivity. 

As there are no metals in this film, you might also notice improved electronic device and phone signal strength, along with reduced heat in your vehicle once the mercury rises. 

Most ceramic tint products contain a hard outer coat with nanoparticles, a transparent polyester layer, a laminate adhesive layer with nanoparticles, another transparent polyester layer, a mounting adhesive, and, finally, glass. 

The combination of layers promotes strength while also allowing for those previously mentioned benefits like UVA and UVB ray protection. The top layer, which is the hardest, provides your vehicle windows with additional strength while even reducing the risk of scratching. 

Underneath that layer is clear polyester, which adds depth and thickness, and precedes the laminate adhesive, which improves visibility. 

Is Ceramic Tint Worth It? 

Learning whether ceramic tint for your windows is worth it can depend on your reasons for considering window tinting in the first place. When you compare this product to standard automotive window film, it’s clear to see that it stands leagues ahead of the competition.

It can bond better to windows, provides long-lasting protection, and, depending on the type, might even provide an adequate amount of privacy. 

Benefits of Ceramic Tint for Windows

When you compare regular automotive window tint products to ceramic tint, you’ll likely notice many key feature differences. But that doesn’t always make it easier for you to decide which product is right for you. Before deciding, you might see the value in learning more about the benefits of ceramic tint, such as these below. 

Exceptional UV Protection

UV and infrared rays are incredibly harmful to our health, with most skin cancers developing as a result of them. While no product on the market will likely block all UV and infrared rays, ceramic tint is capable of blocking up to 99.9%. Most factory side door windows only block between 44% and 96%, meaning the addition of a ceramic tint product can be helpful.

Reduced Device Signal Interruption

The metal components in traditional window tints have been known to cause a frustrating problem for vehicle owners: weakened or blocked signals for Bluetooth, radio, and WiFi. If you’ve experienced this problem in the past with traditional window tints, switching to ceramic window tints might be a refreshing change.

Ceramic window tints don’t have metal materials, which means there’s little to no chance that they will cause signal issues with your devices.

Heat Resistance

In many parts of the United States, like Texas, summer can be unbearable. Even with the air conditioning on, you have to combat the heat coming through all your vehicle windows. 

Ceramic window tints can reduce how much heat is able to enter your vehicle from the outside. Some ceramic tints even have IR blocking technology, which can further enhance heat resistance. 

Less Driving Glare

Sun glare can make driving dangerous, especially when it stops you from seeing all potential obstacles on the road. While ceramic tint can’t remove all sun glare, it can go a long way toward reducing some of it for a more comfortable and safer driving experience.
