Not All Window Tint Is Created Equal

Ultimate IR ceramic window tint on Tesla Roof Glass

When you go to a showroom and look at your car’s or truck’s window tint, it might seem like the only difference is the shade. The truth is there are major differences in heat rejections and more.

Heat Rejection

Ceramic window tint and Ultimate IR ceramic window tint is the clear choice for blocking heat in EVs and other vehicles. Our best window tint can block 95% of heat gain in a virtually clear film — perfect for windshields and roof glass. It will block 98% of heat gain at 35% VLT.

Ultimate IR can actually increase the range on an EV or fuel economy on a gas vehicle by reducing the amount of work the climate control system has to do.

Carbon films are your next best bet. Our carbon film will block over 70% of IR heat.

Dyed, CS, and Metallic films do not perform well when it comes to heat gain.


Our Ceramic films are 2 Mils thick, while our carbon films are 1.5 Mils thick.

Scratch Resistance

Dyed films are not resistant to scratching at all. Carbon films provide some protection. Ceramic films can scratch but are the most scratch resistant.

UV Rays

UV rays are a cause of skin cancer. Dyed and other inexpensive window tinting products provide minimal protection. Carbon and ceramic window tint provide the best protection.

Signal Interference

Neither our carbon nor ceramic tint will interfere with wireless or GPS signals.

Blistering, Fading, or Cracking

Cheap window films will fade, blister, and crack. Our carbon or ceramic films will not.
