 Types Of Window Tint Film

 Dyed Construction window films 
(Avalos Tint does not carry this film based on it's tendency to fade to purple rapidly.)
Dyed window tint film, is the most economical type of window-tinting film – least expensive and rather less functional than the others – the dye is placed in a layer next to the adhesive, and then applied to the window. Solar heat is absorbed by the dye in the film, thus preventing some of the heat from entering through the window. When used on the windows of an automobile, it will appear black. The dye does tend to fade in a short period of time. The heat-reduction provided by most varieties of dyed film is particularly low.

Metallized/ Hybrid Construction Window Films 
Metallized tinting film, like dyed film, keeps heat away from interior space by reflecting it away; in the case of metallized film, this is done by very small metallic particles – invisible to the eye – embedded in the film. It is more resistant to scratches than dyed film. When used in a vehicle, however, one drawback of metallized film is the fact that its metallic content has a tendency to interfere with cell phone and GPS transmission, not to mention radio reception.
Products we carry are: HP Suntek Window Films and 3M HP FX Window Films.

Carbon Construction Window Films 
Carbon window tint film delivers rather better results. Carbon film doesn’t have any metal in it, so the issue with cell phones and radio transmission doesn’t arise when it is used. Carbon window-tinting film is dark and matte-finished, so it provides a tasteful option on windows. The carbon content of the film blocks about 49% of the infrared light (the kind that causes warmth) that enters through the windows. Carbon window-tinting film is about as effective as other varieties in blocking heat; its use will effectively cool inside space while also
helping prevent fading to upholstery. Thus the air conditioning will not need to work so hard to cool the space during the summer, nor will the heating system be so heavily impacted during the winter. Unlike dyed film, carbon film will not fade with time.

Ceramic Construction Window Films 
Ceramic film is the highest quality of window tint film, and also one of the most expensive, contains neither metal, dye, nor carbon, but instead a kind of ceramic particle that is both nonconductive and nonmetallic. Ceramic film has only recently appeared on the market, but has already proven its worth in terms of performance and reliability. Ceramic window-tinting film cuts from 45% to 50% of the solar heat that enters through the windows in the form of infrared light, while allowing maximum visibility both by day and night. Like carbon film, ceramic window-tinting film allows maximum efficiency in the functioning of radios, cell phones, GPS systems, and all other such devices being operated from inside the protected space. It surpasses the other types in its resistance to glare and fading, and renders windows highly shatter-proof. Ceramic film is also most effective in its blocking of ultraviolet light from the interior; in the case of ultraviolet light (the kind of light rays that contribute to sunburn and skin cancer), ceramic window-tinting film can block up to 99% from entering the interior.
Products We Carry are: Suntek CIR Ceramic and 3M Color Stable (nano-Carbon construction)

Multi-layer Protective Window Film Construction
The 3m Crystalline Series features a proprietary, multilayer optical film nano-technology that combines over 200 layers in a film that is thinner than a Post-it Note.This unique technology is the reason a clear film can reject more heat than darker films. Crystalline automotive window films provide a total sun protection factor (SPF) of over 1000. It also provides vehicle occupants with significant protection from the dangers of the sun's UV rays, including sunburn, causes of premature agin, and the risk of more serious conditions. Improving comfort, protecting vehicle interiors and blocking UV rays are hallmarks of 3M Automotive Window Films.
