WINDOW TINTING FAQ

All your tinting questions, answered.

  • Why do we only use the best high performance CERAMIC TINTS? (No dyed films or carbon here.)

    Excellent protection from UV rays and glare

    Hush quality Ceramic window tints can protect you from 99 percent of the UV rays that cause skin cancer & plastics finishes to crack and interiors to fade.

    Powerful heat resistance

    Ceramic window tints will cool your car because it can block massive quantities of UV radiation & infrared radiation.

    No signal interruption

    Like metallic window tints, ceramic window tint will not interfere with your signals (cell phones, satellite, 5G, or XM).

    Ceramic window tints are the best in durability

    The coloring won’t change the color (like dyed films that turn purple) and will keep the look good (will not bubble-ever).

  • Why don’t other shops specialize in ceramic tint?

    Extremely high cost

    $70 for a box of dyed film vs. $1000+  for a box of ceramic film.

    Difficulty with installation

    It takes more skill for heat shrinking ceramic films.

  • What is CERAMIC WINDOW FILM?

    Solar Control®’s Ceramic window film is a type of tinting film that can be applied to any kind of window. Unlike other films, it is not made of metal, nor is the film dyed to be a darker shade. This means that this film is both non-metal and does not conduct. Instead, the film is imbued with small, ceramic-based nanoparticles. Since these particles are so small, they are actually not visible to the naked eye. As a result, you have a window film that is completely clear, allowing a greater level of visibility both during the day and the night. It is tougher and more durable.

  • What are the benefits?

    While the benefits are similar to the benefits of conventional film, there are added benefits that come with the installation of ceramic window film.

    Durability

    Because other types of film tend to have their color fade over time, they look less appealing with long-term wear. This is eliminated with ceramic window film.

    Infrared Light Blocking

    Infrared light is a type of wavelength that’s part of the everyday spectrum of waves that we are bombarded with on a daily basis. This type of electromagnetic radiations is not visible to the naked eye, but is perceived by human, as is the ray that causes the feeling of heat. Ceramic window film blocks up to 90% of the infrared rays that penetrate windows. This causes a reduction in solar heat, leaving the interior feeling cooler.

    Ultraviolet Blocking

    Ceramic window film blocks approximately 99% of the UV rays that penetrate windows. UV rays are light rays that are harmful to the skin and can contribute to wrinkling, sun damage and the development of skin cancer. This is one the most important health benefits of ceramic film.

    Metal-Free

    Many metal-based films interfere with the functioning of electronic devices such as GPS systems, cellphones and radios by blocking or disrupting the radio and electronic waves that help these devices to function. Because ceramic film is completely metal-free, is allows for the maximal efficacy of the functioning of electronic devices.

    Glare Resistance

    Because of the technology by which ceramic film is made, there is a massive reduction in the amount of reflection and glare caused by this film. The science behind it is the ability of the ceramic particles to absorb light rays, preventing penetration and reducing glare.

    Shatter-Proof

    This type of film is shatter-proof, meaning that in the event of an accident or damage to the window, the glass shards will break but remain fixed in place, making this a safer option to the available alternatives.

  • Can high quality CERAMIC TINTS protect your HEALTH?

    Yes.

    Macular Degeneration is a leading cause of decreased vision and blindness in older Americans

    Cataracts develop from prolonged exposure to UV-B rays. This manifests as a clouding of the lens in the eye. This makes it difficult to focus light and impairs vision.

    Pterygium is a growth on the eye caused by UV ray exposure. The growth starts on the white part of the eye and may spread to the cornea. Over time, this growth can block your vision.

    Skin Cancer is a well-known risk of exposure to UV rays. This cancer can develop on the eyelids from looking into the sunlight.

    Corneal Sunburn, also called photokeratitis, can occur after short-term, high-level exposure to UV-B rays. This often occurs following long hours at the beach or on the snow without proper eye protection.


    *Extensive driving without eye protection may also cause corneal damage. This condition is often very painful and can result in temporary vision loss.
