If you live in San Diego, you probably already it’s a good idea to tint your car windows. But do you know why it’s a good idea? Here are some benefits you may not have considered.
Benefits of Car Window Tinting
Window tint blocks over 90% of harmful UV rays
Window film reduces interior heat by up to 60%
Window tint protects upholstery from fading
Window film increases privacy
Window tint reduces glare
Window film holds shattered glass in place in the event of breakage
But just because most window films on the market provide generally similar benefits, it doesn’t mean all brands are the same. A window film installation expert can help you choose the best tint for your needs and budget. Here are some of the top brands to look for:
Solar Gard winding tinting film and products
Solar Gard offers a variety of window film products, including ceramic-based films, metallic films, and dyed films. Solar Gard’s ceramic line reduces UV penetration to near-zero levels while its metal-based films offer amazing visibility even at darker shades. Meanwhile, their dyed films are great for preventing electronic interference that can occur with metallic film, and the company backs all of their window films with a limited lifetime worry so you don’t have to worry about discoloration, bubbling, or peeling.
SunTek car tinted windows film in San Diego & El Cajon
SunTek is an optimal brand for budget-conscious consumers, but that doesn’t mean their products are inferior to more expensive brands. In particular, SunTek specializes in films with a black finish and offers some of the darkest window tints available that still fall within legal limits. SunTek films also prevent electronic interference, thanks to their use of non-metal carbon technology.
Huper Optik ceramic window tint for cars or trucks
Huper Optik is a German company with one of the best ceramic window tints available. Their tints offer heat rejection levels that only darker, non-ceramic tints can match. The company also makes dyed and metallic films, but they excel at ceramic tints, featuring patented nano-ceramic technology that allows for clear visibility at darker levels. While Huper Optik is on the pricey side of tint brands, their products are designed for long-term, high-standard performance, making the investment well worth it.
LLumar car window film products in San Diego
LLumar also offers a wide range of window film products, but their line of metallic films truly shines. Using a multi-layer approach with dyed and metal layers, LLumar’s metallic films offer darker shades without the fading common with dyed films. But if electronic interference is a concern, the company also offers high-quality ceramic tints that feature durable, scratch-resistant construction and extremely high levels of heat and glare rejection.
3M car window film for tinted car windows
A pioneer in the window film industry, 3M (best known for Scotch Tape) offers standard tint options while continuing to push the boundaries of tinting technology. The company’s Crystalline Tint, for example, is a clear film that uses cutting-edge, multi-layer optical film comprised of 200 layers of film thinner than one of 3M’s other famous products, Post-it Notes. Crystalline Tint offers all the UV and heat-blocking benefits of darker tint, and while your car might not look as sleek and mysterious, you can be sure you’re not violating any state window tinting laws.
