There is more than just one type of window tint on the market, and many of these tints are available in a wide array of tints, shades and tones. Choose the right color for maximum effect.
Choosing the Right Window Tint Type and Color Characteristics Can Make a Big Difference
Window tinting in Las Vegas is as much an art as it is a science. There is no one-size-fits-all product on the market. By exploring your options and taking the time to make the right choice, you can maximize the aesthetic appeal of your car or truck.
Available Window Tint Types
Some of the most common window tint options include dyed window film, metalized window film, hybrid window film and ceramic film. Dyed window film has three layers: a dyed layer, an adhesive layer and a protective layer. Metalized window film is similar except that it has a metalized rather than dyed layer, and that metalized layer is often attached to an additional layer that has been treated to block ultraviolet light. Hybrid window film combines the above concepts by having both a dyed and metalized layer. Ceramic film, which is a relatively recent option, reflects heat and thereby lowers temperatures in the vehicle.
Black Window Tint is Not the Only Option
Black is the default choice because it goes with just about anything. It also has a subdued appeal, which means that it looks nice without detracting from the flashier aspects of the vehicle. However, black is not the only option, and it’s not a necessary choice in order to achieve a desired level of privacy, light blockage and heat reflection.
Choosing the Right Material and Color
Material choice determines the tint’s ability to reflect heat, block light and provide privacy. Keep in mind that while you can adjust tint, shade and tone to achieve a desired color, the underlying material will provide its own characteristics. In other words, forest green will look a bit different in dyed film than it does in hybrid film. As a rule of thumb, darker window tints are more appealing, but rather than basic black, consider a tint that’s a darkened version of the vehicle’s body color.
