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.
- Old-Fashioned Tints – dyed and/or metallised
- Carbon Tint
- Ceramic 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.
