Understanding Type of Window Tint:Stay Legal,Stay Cool

Does it surprise you that there are different types of window Car Window Tint Squeegee available for different applications? Sure, its quick and easy to choose your tint based on how light or dark it looks, but having a more complete understanding of how tints work will help you make a better decision.

Light Levels

When looking at different types of window tint, one of the first things youll notice is that each has its own visible light transmission, or VLT, level. This refers to the amount of light that will pass through the tint and into the cabin of your car or truck. For example, a tint with a VLT of 35 percent allows 35 percent of the light shining through the glass to reach the passenger compartment. A VLT of 5 percent is considerably darker, and will look almost opaque.A lime green Dodge Charger with Window Tinting Scraper Handles

Theres one more calculation youll have to make when deciding which VLT to choose: factoring in the factory tint on your vehicles glass. Almost all cars and trucks leave the assembly line with at least some tint, and you should ask a tinting professional to test your glass to find out what level is already present before you make the mistake of going too dark by layering one tint over another.

Material Type

Another consideration is that different types of window tint are often made of different materials, regardless of their VLT. The most common is dyed film, which makes use of a dye layer that absorbs sunlight on top of an adhesive. Adding metallic particles to this mix makes metallized film, which improves the strength of the film but has the drawback of blocking cellphone transmissions and other radio signals from inside the vehicle.

For those looking for more than an aesthetic solution, carbon window tint is better at absorbing infrared light than either of the two listed above, and that helps keep your vehicles cabin cooler while still looking stylish. Using carbon rather than metal also avoids the signal interference issues of metallized trim. Ceramic film is a step above carbon and cuts out more heat without requiring as dark of a tint, which is useful if you live in a very hot area and do a substantial amount of night driving.


Dyed window tint often fades in the sun over time, which means youll be replacing your tints more often than with other materials. Metallized tint is a solid choice for people who want the extra scratch-and-fade resistance that the metallic particles provide, particularly if pets will be pawing at the windows on a regular basis.

Neither carbon tint nor ceramic tint are known to fade significantly with time, making them good long-term choices for anyone evaluating different types of window tint Teflon Card.

Remember: Once youve picked your tint material and VLT, always make sure to consult with your local laws regarding what windows on your vehicle can be tinted and how dark you can go. Its better to plan in advance than deal with a ticket later on.

Dad Four Of Cars With Metallic Tints

When I complained he said the guy had been there first. I got the hint and left. I will never be back to this place. Aside from the rude treatment, I want to dispel this metallic vs. non-metallic scam. Metallic tint is not made of metal. It has metallic particles. Just like the paint on your car. Your GPS/XM/FM antenna is outside your car window tint installation spray bottle. The tint has zero effect. With the amount of cell towers that are out, no one really has issues with signal in cars or buildings for that matter. Metallic tint does not deteriorate signal strength to any degree that will impact your everyday use. I have had four cars with metallic tints (including the one I just had done somewhere else) and I have zero reception problems. Don’t be a sucker. Reject merchants that treat you like one.Wonderful service! I decided to wait a few weeks before writing a review just so I may test the tinting. I would recommend auto car window film tinting tools to anyone in the area, friends and family included!They talk the talk they do not deliver. They up sell, explain and convince. With my first car, it was just a fine job. With the second car, I paid for the top line. I get a horrible job. Went back, then you see the Car Window Film Tint Tools unreliable greedy manager and owner. They make me angry with their lame excuses, asking me to come back when they are not busy. I paid almost $500.

Please visit this place, it’s absolutely amazing.Hugo did an excellent job at tinting my new 2016 Honda Civic. He took his time explaining my options and the benefits of each level. The price of Window Tinting Tools is fair and I was in and out in less than an hour. Thanks so much, looks great! This is the 2nd car I’ve had them tint with excellent results.I had a car tinted here several years ago and they did a good job. Unfortunately, this place has changed. This place is all about the upsell now. They sell good quality metallic tints for $129 but they trash them as soon as you ask for this option. Metallic tints are resistant to fading over time as well as the most effective at reflecting harmful rays and Window Tinting Blades. This shop, however, claims that this product has a tendency to cause interference with electronics, GPS, radio reception ect. Why? Because they want to charge you $300 for a carbon tint job. When I told the sales guy (a short foul little man with a heavy accent) I wanted metallic tint he frowned and said in a very loud voice “so you want the metallic tint despite the fact that it interferes with all of your electronics?” I smiled and said yes. He turned his back and walked away. He basically ignored me for the next 20 minutes and dealt with other customers while I waited. He even placed another guy ahead of me who had arrived after me.

A Superb Tinting Work On My Car

Very professional and  they did a superb work on my car. Highly recommend!Great service, I was helped by Hugo. He was very knowledgeable and helped me pick the right tints for my car. I will be coming back to get my taillights tinted.Don’t pass this place up. Made an appointment the day before and was happily greeted the day of.  Ariel was friendly, patient, and thoroughly explained all the pros and cons of the products they offered. He gave me all the knowledge I needed and let me make the choice for Window Tint Squeegees. He wasn’t pushy, but instead very upfront about everything. I took my Mitsubishi Evolution here which already had tints, he was able to safely remove them without damaging anything, even the rear defogger, and installed the new tints, all within about 1.5hrs. After the installation he took the car outside and let it sit, then gave it a final inspection. He also taped my window controls so I wouldn’t hit them by accident. He then explained how my purchase came with a nationwide lifetime warranty. I couldn’t ask for a more professional, friendly experience paint protection film tools.

Various Window Tint Tools We Offer

If you’re looking to tint your car on the cheap, just plaster some dark scotch tape on your windows and call it a day. If you want it done right, go talk to these guys.First of all, everyone at this Auto Window Tint Tools operates at a very high level of professionalism, which I rarely find at most car-related service shops. They take their time to make sure the job is done right instead of just getting you in and out the door as quickly as possible to get to the next customer.Both Paul and Ariel spent time explaining the difference between the various films they offer, and showed me what it looks like on their own cars.I am extremely picky, so when the job was done, I went through every inch of the glass and pointed out every little thing that seemed suspicious to me. They assured me that the tiny bubbles are just water, which will evaporate as it dries (true), and took the car back into the shop for a few minutes to iron out a tiny crease, which was barely visible, but I knew it would bug me later.The quality of the work was absolutely superb. I’m very happy with the way the Car Window Tint Squeegee looks and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get a quality tint job on their car.

High-quality Tints Aren’t Always a Dark Shade

As with the dot matrix, your rear window’s defroster is 3D. Any excess gap where the tint is firmly affixed to the window will become an excellent starting point for bubbles to form and expand over time. You want to make sure the tint is pressed as tightly against the defroster as possible.
Don’t automatically assume that a dark tint has the best heat-blocking properties. While the car is in the sun, put one hand directly in the sun and one hand behind the window, so you can feel the difference. So this is the window film with paint protection film tools.Yes, as a general rule, the darker the tint, the greater the heat reduction, but a high-quality ceramic tint like Huper Optik or a spectrally selective tint like 3M’s Crystalline line is more efficient, meaning a lighter shade can still be more effective than a dark shade of the cheap stuff.

How to Choose a Window Tint Installer

Most areas, local or otherwise, have an abundance of tint shop stores. It is important that you learn what makes one tint job better than the other. Research and compile a list of a few local tint shops that would most likely do good work. Ask your friends and neighbors who have tinted their cars which tint shops they have used.


  1. Find out how long they have been in business at this location
  • Good tint shops prosper despite local competition by offering good service at reasonable prices.
  • Find a tint shop that has been in business for 5 or more years at the same location. This shows a stable business that will be there years down the road if somehow the tint goes bad.
  • Often times, successful tint shops open car tinting branches in neighboring cities. Although the installers of the branches may not be the master tint of the bunch, since opening new shops means training new employees; however, branches are a sure sign of a successful tinting business.

Inquire about the types of film they carry, and what type of warranty they offer.

  • Quality tint shops carry complete lines of window film from one or multiple window film manufacturers. They should carry dyed, hybrid, and metallic in a variety of colors and darkness. Beware of tint shops that only carry one or two lines of film, and sells them aggressively. They may have acquired this film on sale, and may not be thinking of your unique requirements and concerns.
  • The warranty on the car tint varies depending on the window film you choose. Try to install only window film backed with a lifetime warranty for materials and labor. Most films don’t guarantee color and fading, it is recommended that you also choose one that does.
  • For the warranty to take effect, check out the window tint laws for your state. Illegal tint can nullify any manufacturer’s warranty. When you purchase your tint, be sure sure you get a manufacturer’s warranty card from the dealer with the date, the window film used on each window, and the total cost of installation as well as the receipt.

Try to visit a few tint shops to see a sample of their work.

  • Tint shops can sound like the best shop on the phone, but 15 minutes on-site should tell you all you need to know.
  •  Good dealers pay attention to customer service. They should be happy and willing to spend the time to talk to you and explain how their shops work. Remember, if they don’t spend time with you now, they might not spend time with you when something goes wrong with your tint job down the road.
  • A tint shop’s work area should be indoors and clean. Their tools and window films are organized in a professional manner. If the tint shop is outdoors or in a parking lot, this is a negative since it is critical to remove all dust and dirt from the windows before applying window film.
  • Take a look at a car they have already tinted, and look at the rear window. Is the window film applied in a single piece or is it cut into strips that surround the defroster lines. The best tint shops always apply film in a single piece. Look at the borders of the rear window, in many cars there is a black ‘frit’ edge on the window, Make sure the window film is securely attached to the frit as well.
  • Look for slices in window gasket material inside and out.
  • Look for nicks in the paint around the windows.
  • Pay attention to side-windows. The window film should be applied to the inside and be completely flush against all 4 edges of the window. Now look at the window film itself. Don’t worry if the film looks slightly streaky and discolored, window film takes a couple weeks to dry out and become completely clear. If there are bubbles of air under the film or the film itself is not complete flat against the window, this is a sure sign of sloppy tinting.

Get price quotes from a few dealers for the exact darkness, color, and type of window film you want. Never compromise because there are plenty of other dealers out there that will offer your perfect tint. With these price quotes and your research on each tint shop, make the decision.

Make your decision and then remember to make an appointment with the tint shop before you tint your car. Even if they say “drop-ins accepted” or “bring it over any time”, you want your tinter to be calm and prepared for you when you arrive. Tinting may take a couple hours to half a day, so either arrange a ride or go to a nearby coffee shop with a good book. Enjoy!
