I just had to remove my tint because I got a 5 day tag by the DMV but I've had it on for a year without any issues so I will re-do and try again! You can customize the cookie-related settings at any time by clicking on Cookie Preferences in the footer of this page.

Sputtered (Metalized) FilmsMetalized films are infused with various kind of metals such as copper, nickel and aluminum among others. This metal deflects heat and sends it back to the outside during summer and also deflects interior heat back into your car during the winter.


The metals are inserted into the film during the creation process and they are infused on an atomic level. When this process is completed there is an even distribution of metals across the whole of the tinting film. This kind of film is most often used on homes and offices and not on automobiles.Deposited FilmsDeposited films are similar to metalized films in that they use a combination of various metals to achieve heat reduction. The kinds of metals used for this process are limited however and they usually contain nickel or aluminum.Hybrid FilmsHybrid films are exactly what they sound like. They take the best properties of both dyed and metalized films and combine them into one film which does it all. By combining the reflective and absorptive qualities they can achieve a lighter tint color while still reflective nearly all of the sun's energy which is typically transformed into ambient heat through unprotected windows.Ceramic FilmsNew to the window tinting arena is ceramic tint films.
These films are created using nanotechnology and are at the cutting edge of window tint technology.
Ceramic tints reduce the amount of interference sometimes found in colored or dyed films while literally strengthening the glass itself once it is installed. As it is such a new advancement, it is more expensive than other options available and is generally regarded as the best film for automotive applications.How Does Window Glass Come From The Factory?Window glass does not have a 100 percent light transmission.
