Modern Car Tints: Superior Heat Rejection


What are the 3 types of window tint?

Over the last decade or so, there would be up to 5 different types of window films, however in this day and age, you should really categorise them into 3 classifications.


  1. Old-Fashioned Tints – dyed and/or metallised
  2. Carbon Tint
  3. Carbon Ceramic Hybrid Tint

This is in the order of least favourable to the best possible alternative. Frankly speaking, we would advise against anyone using dyed or metallised tints as there is much better technology these days such as colour stabilising pigments, advanced heat and infrared protection, scratch resistance and much more. Carbon and ceramic tints are the only tints we would recommend to any driver, especially if safety and aesthetics are paramount to your purchasing decision.

The Rear Window

Having the rear window is a fantastic way to shield any belongings that may sit in the boot from heat, especially during Summer . Please note that the rear windscreen is included free of charge to our ‘All Windows Package’ as this tends to be a personal preference from driver to driver, just inform our team should you wish to have it excluded.

What Is Privacy Glass?

Many of the newer model cars will now come stocked with a factory privacy glass, which is stained with a darker shade. They look fantastic on the windows as they offer privacy and shade, however, you must consider that they offer very little to no-protection. These windows although look great and tinted, they are in fact, not tinted at all and therefore lack many of the key benefits and protective properties that come with a tint. You can expect to have a nice modern look without much heat and sun protection, which are very important.

Can You Tint All Parts Of The Car?

We can only tint the windows and windshield – meaning the side windows, rear glass and front windscreen with the exception that only a weather strip is installed. The weather strip is covers approximately the top 10% of the front windscreen at the very top of the glass. We do not tint the full windscreen, headlights or tail lights. Only legal installations are provided.

How Long Does It Take To Tint A Car?

The Curing process typically takes 2-4 weeks and sometimes a bit longer during Winter or cooler temperatures as it takes longer for the lubrication to evaporate. Works vice versa, during hotter temperatures, it can cure faster than anticipated. However, the actually installation to tint a car takes no longer than 2 hours.

Post Car Window Tinting Care

You can refer to our guide on car window cleaning. However, please remember not to wind down the window after your service or clean the windows as specified in the window care email. If you have had your windows tinted recently, then locate our post care email for advice on how to maintain your tints.

What is L.A.H.

L.A.H stands for Low Angle Haze, which is a commonality and more pronounced in your more premium tints, in particular Ceramic-Based tints. Typically speaking, the higher the Infrared Radiation (IR Rejection) the more pronounced the haze can be upon certain low angles. This is because these state of the art Ceramic Films possess a composition of a highly dense matrix of nanoceramic particles packed tightly together, which is why it is super-effective at rejecting heat better than any other alternative out there. This can occur in carbon tints too, where nano particles of carbon is used, but Carbon alone has a significantly lower rating of rejecting IR. Unlike, your old fashioned metallised, reflective and dyed tints (which tend to be the cheaper quality selections, may not have a light haze to the same degree to these nanotechnology films, but nonetheless compromise on heat reduction, thermal regulation and overall durability ie colour stability and so on.

The Perfect Finish

Though we strive for perfection in our installations, due to the nature of the product and surrounding environment, some degree of dust contamination and or minor imperfections can occur on a minute level.

Also note that any pre-existing flaws such as scratches are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted due to contrasting colours.

A couple of tiny dots on the window may be noticeable from the outside, but not the inside, this will by no means affect the performance of the tint whatsoever.

I Have Been Quoted Cheaper Somewhere Else

We are all for saving money and costs, but when it comes to safety, this is an area of our lives that we should not compromise on. After all, tinting your car is one of those features that you would only install once in its own lifetime, so we always recommend that if you are planning to have your car protected with car tints, you may as well do it right the first and only time. Carbon and Ceramic tints are by far the best forms of window tints on the market and like our tints, they have undergone and passed test conditions to be deemed a premium option with fantastic heat rejection, UV protection and durability.

Do The Tinting Technicians Remove Car Window Tints Too?

We do not perform car tint removal services – please see your local window tinting shop for assistance.

What Is The Darkest Legal Tint?

35% and 20% depending on which window pane.

Each state and country will be confined to different tinting laws, so it is always best to check.

We only provide the darkest legal tints for your car and only do install tints that are legal. This typically is a 20 or 35% VLT/Shade range in case you are in need of a specific shade. You can always view on the day to see which you prefer, given that is legal. It is most popular to find cars with a 35% on the front windows and 20% for the rear or 35% all over.

What Tints Do You Use?

We stock a combination of Carbon and premium hybrid Carbon-Ceramic Tints (across various shades/darkness) – the best you can find because your car deserves nothing short of the best. For extra protection, you can always use a ceramic coating to protect the exterior of the window or better yet, graphene coatings. We do not stock any of the old-fashioned tints such as dyed or metallised tints which fade over time, affect aerial and radio signals, which is a big reason why they are cheap as durability can be an issue.

For more information about our carbon and ceramic tints, just give us a call today.

Where Do You Service?

We service most of Sydney and its surrounding suburbs. If in doubt, you can just call us or even speak to one of our staff online just on the bottom right hand corner is our live chat box – simply click to open and ask. Just note that, we do require access to a powerpoint on site as well as enough space within an enclosed area, similar area to an empty double car garage. If you are parked in an underground car park, please have the car parked in a well lit area.

What Days Do You Operate?

We operate all 7 days of the week, booking vacancy will depend on how busy we are and ultimately our availability. We recommend giving us at least a few days notice so that we can plan ahead and try to meet with your preferred date/time.

Do Your Car Tinters Come To Me?

Yes, we do. We are conveniently mobile and highly skilled in our delivery. If you have an empty double garage space of that size, that would help greatly. It is very important that your location is enclosed, has bright lighting and as clean as possible as it can affect the quality of the finished job as there is no such thing as a perfect contamination/dust-free environment, so achieving the cleanest possible location is key.

High Performance Car Window Selection Range

mobile car window tinting shade

Select your desired shade of car window tinting shade to suit the finish of your car to your own preference. We supply a wide range of top quality car window tinting shades that are of the darkest legal tint NSW allows. For reference, 20% and 35% are our most common shades selected and at times 5% for Commercial Vans for the ultimate privacy. As indicated by the image above, the lower the VLT the darker the shade. As far as the windscreen can get tinted, it will only be the weather strip, which covers the top 10% of the window panel. This is a great way to add extra protection and shield some of the glare received from the Sun when driving head on, a popular add-on by many of our customers.

Only Installing Tints For The Front 2 Windows?

If you recently purchased a new car from the motor dealership and considering to have the front 2 windows tinted only. Did you know that the rear windows are most likely are factory privacy glass and these carry very little protection at all when it comes to rejecting the harmful effects of the Sun. They may look tinted, but are more or less, ‘stained or coloured’ for the intention of offering privacy only. So, unless you are okay with having only the 2 front windows professionally protected against the harmful UV rays, then we suggest opting for all car windows to be tinted. Besides, it will play a huge factor in maintaining your car interior in top shape all year round. The Summer heat and harmful UV rays can sure play a heavy toll on the interior causing leather and plastic to crack and fade in certain parts of the car. You will be surprised to know how many Australians have been involved in sticky situations where bottles of milk or beverage have exploded inside the car due to the sheer amount of heat contained. For those who leave groceries in the backseat after shopping, would greatly appreciate the extra heat reduced, to keep your fruit and vegetables as fresh as possible. Besides opting for the front 2 windows for your car window tinting is just like driving with your AC on, but with the rear 2 windows still down. If you are serious about a cool and comfortable driving experience, it would make sense to have all windows tinted for optimal heat reduction. Clear or tinted film can reduce the amount of UV penetrating by over 99%.

Excess heat in the car, especially during the Summer season, can put anyone off from driving. Not only that, but if you plan to drive without car tints, you will be exposing your skin to the Sun, which can lead to many skin issues such as wrinkling and the same applies to your car interior. Excessive heat causes extreme wear and tear causing the plastic and leather to show ageing effects and may contribute to damage to the car roof lining. The best way to avoid this is by working with the best company offering car window tinting in Sydney in shielding the vehicle from these harmful factors. We are conversant with the latest trends and are capable of providing personalised services to suit each person’s needs and car model. One of the great aspects about our car window tinting service, is that if you book all windows to be tinted, we will include the rear completely free of charge as we understand that some drivers to prefer to have clear vision across both the front and rear windows whilst driving.

Drivers who need to have  car window tinting film removed and replaced with a new set, are best off having this organised in an in-house studio/physical workshop as opposed to our mobile service. Removing tints can be a very difficult process and will often vary from vehicle to vehicle depending on its condition or state of the glue/adhesive used and can at times require multiple tinting technicians to treat it. For those looking to have your headlights or tail lights tinted, we do not perform this as it is not legal to do so when the lights have been darkened. These lights are crucial towards ensuring safe driving and should not be hindered or tampered with.


Car Window Tinting Service Sydney








Schmicko guarantees a lot of options as you choose the car tint suitable for your vehicle. However, we highly recommend choosing the correct type. Here are a few tips when selecting a car window tint.


The Right Darkness


First of all, it’s very important that you’re knowledgeable in terms of how dark the tint should be. This can range according to the so-called Visible Light Transmission (VLT), or the level of light passing through the windows.


The VLT comes in different levels and this will depend on the choice of the car owner. You can have the windows tinted to allow as little as 5% of light to pass through (common for commercial vehicles for privacy reasons – protection against tools being stolen in the back and so on). On the other hand, your VLT can also go as much as 70%, which is almost the same as a window that isn’t tinted that can be applied on privacy glass as they contain little to no protection since they are similar to glass stained dark.


If you’re still unsure of what tint of darkness to pick, choose a well-balanced type based on protection from UV rays and road visibility. This type of balance ranges between 20% and 35% of VLT, the most popular and common options in Australia. Through this approach, you’re assured of good visibility while driving, and at the same time, the sun’s harmful rays won’t affect you that much.


Follow the Local Regulations


But aside from taking note of the sun protection and road visibility, it’s also important (and mandatory) to follow the local laws in terms of installing car window tints. There are cities that have strict regulations on this. For example, some places restrict tints with a VLT level lower than 35%.
