Quality Tinting Services in Florida
We specialize in window tinting for cars, boats, homes, and offices. Don’t be surprised when we tell you there are different types of window tint available for different applications! While it’s easy to choose your tint based on how light or dark it should look, having a complete understanding of how tints work helps you make better decisions.
How to Choose your Tint
Each window tint has its own visible light transmission (VLT) level – the amount of light that passes through the tint into the interiors. Darker the tint, lesser is the VLT level. Because almost all cars come with at least some factory tint, we at All Pro Tint test your glass to find out what level is already present so we can decide the blackness that’s required.
Regardless of VLT, window tint films can be made of different materials, including dyes and metallic particles. While dyes absorb sunlight, metallic particles improve the strength of the films. The later, however, blocks cellphone and radio signal transmissions. Again, there’s carbon tinting, which is a better absorbent of infrared light, cools the interiors more, and doesn’t block signal transmission. The best of all is ceramic film, which cuts more heat without needing a darker tint.
Dyed films tend to fade over time. Tint films with metallic particles enable scratch and fade resistance. However, carbon tints or ceramic tints are known to never fade, making them most durable and a great choice for long-term use.
