Vinyl Wraps to Change the LookNovember 19, 2019
Pros and Cons of Vinyl WrapNovember 25, 2019
Window films can be seen on just about anything that has windows. Cars, boats, houses, and buildings may all have tints installed. Typically, these films are made of polyester, dye, or metal, but more frequently people are opting for ceramic nowadays. Emerging technology has made these extremely high-quality tints more widely available, and nano-ceramic window film can provide benefits that the other types of films cannot.
How Does Ceramic Window Film Work?
Ceramic film uses double layer nano-ceramic technology. These are small, ceramic particles that are not visible to the naked eye. The result is a clear window that provides a greater degree of visibility during both the night and day. Furthermore, the material is both tougher and more durable.
What are the Benefits of Installing Ceramic Window Film?
Heat from the sun enters your car through the windows and can quickly make the internal temperature uncomfortable. In certain climates, this heat may occur during the dry seasons, so turning on the AC may exaggerate the dryness that you already feel.
In a situation such as this, installing ceramic window film is your answer. A ceramic window film will reduce the amount of heat entering your home by more than 70%, allowing you to keep cool without needing to use further temperature regulatory measures.
In addition to this, ceramic window film is useful in the colder months as well. A high-quality ceramic window tint has insulating capabilities that can help maintain a warm internal temperature in colder times.
The science behind this temperature insulator effect is infrared light blocking. This type of light is not visible to the naked eye but is perceived as the feeling of heat. The ceramic nanoparticles block over 90% of infrared rays, lowing the intensity of the heat inside.
Ceramic window film offers durability over time as well as strength in the material itself. Typically, with other film types, the color of the film fades over time as a result of heavy sun exposure. This result in a less appealing look while also losing the practical benefits of the tint. Because ceramic film uses nano-ceramic particles that are built into the film, it does not degrade over time. In terms of the material itself, the nanoparticles make the film shatterproof. In the event of an accident, the glass shards will break but remain fixed in place. This makes ceramic window film a much safer alternative to other materials in automobiles.
Ceramic window film blocks 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, keeping radiation out of the interior of your vehicle. UV rays are extremely detrimental to them skin as they cause wrinkling, sun damage, and contribute to the development of skin cancer. Furthermore, these rays can actually damage your car’s interior as well. The protection that you receive from a ceramic window film actually preserves your car’s value and appearance by blocking these extremely harmful rays. A ceramic tint will give you the peace of mind that your car will not suffer any sun damage, even if you are constantly leaving it outside all day.
Often times, metal-based films will interfere with the functioning of electronic devices like GPS systems, radios, and cell phones. This is because they block the radio and electronic waves that help these devices to function. Ceramic film on the other hand is metal-free, so it allows for maximal function of electronic devices.
Glare Resistant and Water Repellant
The nano-ceramic particles have the ability to absorb light rays better than other types of tints. Because of this, the amount of reflection and glare is massively reduced and the hydrophobic properties of ceramic window tint literally repel water away.
In addition to all of these benefits, ceramic window tints will, of course, also prevent unwanted attention from outside eyes, allowing you a higher degree of privacy than normal windows would afford. This is great if you like to sing along to music in the car without judgment or even just for keeping a lower profile as you commute to and from your daily locales.
Overall, nano-ceramic or hydrophobic window tinting is exactly what you are looking for if you seek a more ‘Cool’ car, in every definition of the word. In addition to the durability, safety and increase automotive protection that is afforded makes installing carbon ceramic window tints a no brainer.
