Tint or no tint? The answer to that question for those who truly wish to experience their vehicle’s performance at its best is always TINT! But when it comes to the choice of tint, this is where many motorists beg to differ.
Car Window Tints offer great protection against the elements, from heat to infrared to UV rays protection; you can count on window tints to keep your skin safe from the scorching sun and glare, your car interiors and upholstery from fading, and your car performance to be at its most optimum against the summer heat.
We have previously showcased two high-end types of tints; Carbon or nanocarbon window tints, and ceramic or nano-ceramic window tints. Here, we will run it down for you. Which is the better tint according to your own criteria.
Price Range and Affordability:
If you are on a budget and want something that will not leave your wallet high and dry, your best option is carbon or nanocarbon window tints. Being a bit outdated technology unlike the state of the art, high tech nano-ceramic window tints, carbon tints will do the job for you on a budget. If however, you can spare a couple more bucks here are some other factors to consider.
Style, look, and customization:
If you are looking for a mysterious, slick, matte black look, then carbon or nanocarbon window tints are the choices for you.
However, if you are looking for a more smooth, classic shine, then you better opt for ceramic or nano-ceramic window tints.
Both types of window tints come in either fitted films or film rolls which you can cut to fit or customize your need or stylistic preference
When it comes to shade or opacity, with their availability on the market, you can pretty much find the shade that fits you in both tints, but some swear that the carbon or nanocarbon window tints are always darker than any other tint, ceramic or otherwise. This might be a placebo due to their matte nature, but ultimately, you are the judge.
Practicality and Performance:
Both tints hold pretty much the high ground overdyed and metallic tints for two reasons. Both do not have any metal particles, unlike metal-based tints which usually interfere with mobile networks and other services like GPS. They also are not dyed but have a naturally dark pigment which limits the amount of fading over time.
However, the big thing is, when it comes to overall protection and performance, ceramic and nanoceramics outperform carbon and nanocarbon tints on all levels including Uv and Infrared protection. But that does not mean that carbon tints are subpar, far shot, they are reliable, but ceramic tints are the high-end option.
Still knowing these factors, it is best to consult with a tinting expert or your preferred car shop on which tint is best suited for your needs and would guarantee you professional installation and maintenance.
