Ceramic vs Metallic Tint Films

Choosing a tint film for your vehicle is not easy, especially with all the options available. However, if you do some research, you’ll reach the conclusion that there are basically two major types of tint films that are really suitable for car applications. These types are metallic and ceramic. Here are some things that you need to know about these two types of tint films in order to make the right decision.

The main difference between metallic and ceramic tints is how each type is made. Metallic films are basically made of two separate sheets of polyester which are merged together. In between the sheets, there is a very thin layer of metal. This metallic layer gives a certain look to the film and also prevents UV rays from penetrating it. The ceramic films, on the other side, are made using a different method. Basically, the whole tint consists only of two layers: one is polyester and the other is the ceramic layer itself.

Ceramic tint films are more expensive than metallic ones; however, they offer more benefits. One of the biggest benefits of ceramic tint films is that they don’t have reflective properties. They make the glass appear only a few shades darker from the inside. As long as they are installed right, you won’t even notice that they are actually aftermarket tint films.
