While the benefits listed above are far superior to conventional film, there are other added perks that come with the installation of ceramic window film.
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 radiation is not visible to the naked eye, but is perceived by humans as 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.
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. The same rays that cause skin cancer also fade and dry leather, cause plastics to crack, and induce eye disease.
Many metal-based films interfere with the functioning of electronic devices such as GPS systems, 5G cellphones, and XM radios by blocking or disrupting the radio and electronic waves that help these devices to function. Because ceramic film is completely metal-free, this allows for the maximal efficacy of the functioning of electronic signals and devices.
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.
This type of film is shatter-resistant, 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 than uncoated glass.
