Benefits of Tinting Car Windows

  • Privacy: Window tinting provides increased privacy by reducing the visibility into the car’s interior. This is especially beneficial for those who want to keep their personal space private while driving or parked.
  • UV Protection: Tinted windows block a significant amount of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. This not only helps protect the occupants’ skin from sun damage but also prevents interior surfaces from fading or cracking due to prolonged exposure to UV rays.

  • Heat Reduction: Tinted windows can significantly reduce the amount of heat entering the car. This is particularly valuable in hot climates, as it helps maintain a cooler interior temperature, reducing the need for excessive air conditioning and improving overall comfort.

  • Glare Reduction: Tinted windows reduce glare from the sun and headlights of other vehicles, providing a safer driving experience by improving visibility. This can be especially important during sunrise, sunset, or when driving in bright sunlight.

  • Interior Preservation: Window tinting helps protect the car’s interior materials, such as upholstery and dashboard, from sun damage. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause fading, cracking, and deterioration of these surfaces, and tinting helps mitigate these effects.

  • Security: Tinted windows can act as a deterrent to potential thieves by making it more difficult to see valuable items inside the car. This can help reduce the risk of break-ins and theft.

  • Comfort: By reducing discomforts, window tinting enhances overall driving comfort. This is especially beneficial for long drives or when stuck in traffic, as it creates a more pleasant and enjoyable driving environment.

  • Aesthetic Enhancement: Many people choose to tint their windows for aesthetic reasons. Tinted windows can give a sleek, stylish look to a vehicle and complement its overall appearance.

  • Safety: In the event of an accident, tinted windows can help hold shattered glass together, reducing the risk of injuries from broken glass fragments. This is an added safety benefit in case of collisions.

  • Energy Efficiency: Tinted windows contribute to the overall energy efficiency of a vehicle by reducing the need for excessive air conditioning. This can result in fuel savings and a smaller carbon footprint.

Phantom Nano Carbon and Ceramic Window Tint

Each film has its own set of advantages and drawbacks forcing car owners to make a compromise no matter what they chose. However, Rayno Window Film has revolutionised the automotive window film industry with a continued drive for innovation. They have successfully found a formula to combine the unique strengths of carbon material and ceramic material, while also developing new techniques that tackle their drawbacks. The result is the Phantom Nano Carbon Ceramic Window Film offers the best attributes of both materials without any compromises for the drivers. 

To understand what makes the Phantom series so revolutionary, let’s take a look at the differences between carbon vs. ceramic auto window tint:

Carbon Window Tinting Film

Carbon tint is infused with carbon particles, which are highly effective at blocking infrared light. This helps keep car interiors cooler and won’t fade over time the way dyed films do. However, the main disadvantage of carbon is that the particles are so large that light can bounce inside the film, creating glare and haze that make it difficult to see through at times.

Ceramic Window Film

Ceramic window film, on the other hand, is made with non conductive ceramic particles that are small enough to prevent the disadvantages of the previous film while still blocking infrared light. However, ceramic car window tint oxidises relatively quickly. This means the nano ceramic window film will make the film’s original colour lighter, so the film’s shade becomes lighter, faster than carbon films.

Phantom Nano Carbon Ceramic Window Film

The Phantom Nano Carbon Ceramic window film series incorporates innovative technology that allows both carbon and ceramic particles to share the duty of protecting your car’s interior with the advantages of both while significantly reducing the downsides they would have on their own. The unique formula decreases the size of carbon particles down to a nano scale, preventing the disadvantages from the typical carbon films while maintaining its incredible durability. What’s more, by encapsulating high-purity ceramic particles, the film further enhances the colour stability of ceramic while maintaining its higher visibility.

For the front windscreen, you’ll need to choose a VLT percentage that provides the protection you want while remaining legal. Many customers with coupes or sedans get the front sides tinted to the legal limit (35%) and the rear windows to 20%. Our team can advise on the best formula for your specific vehicle type.

When properly installed by a professional tint shop, automotive films should not damage or impair window seals or operation. Quality tint film is extremely thin, making it flexible and easy to trim precisely to avoid blocking any openings.

We use special application techniques so the tint slides smoothly into place without pulling on the glass or rubber seals. Old or compromised seals may sometimes need replacement, but this is not an issue caused by tint installation.

The longevity of automotive window tint depends on several factors, including film quality, exposure conditions, and proper care. Quality dyed films typically last two to five years, while high-performance metallised and ceramic tints can last even longer. Films tend to degrade faster in climates with a lot of sunlight, high heat and humidity, so adhering to maintenance recommendations will help maximise the lifespan of your tint.

It’s time to consider a replacement when films show age-related fading, bubbling, discolouration or cracks.

Window tint applied professionally should not peel, bubble, crack, or delaminate from the glass if properly cared for. Any appearance of adhesive failure usually indicates low film quality, old glass or seals, or an inexperienced installer. Reputable tint shops should stand behind their work and replace faulty applications under a warranty period. Use caution with businesses that offer suspiciously cheap tinting services, as poor-quality films are more prone to failur

As professional tint installers, we use special tools and solutions to cleanly remove old window film when replacing worn tints or changing to a different darkness or type. Attempting to rip off tint without the proper technique can shatter glass and damage rubber seals around the window.

Never try to scrape away the old tint yourself. The safest option is always to have a skilled automotive tint shop team handle the removal process.

In most modern vehicles, quality tint films should not interfere with in-car electronics like onboard navigation, Bluetooth, lane assist cameras or collision detection systems. However, metallised films may cause minor reception loss for some AM radio and cellular signals.

Ceramic and high-tech tints are specially formulated so as not to affect modern vehicle electronics.
