How does window tint work?

Answer provided by
Often, how window tint works is that there are a polyester film that’s applied to the window, which will let certain rays of light through, while others will get reflected.
A metalized tint is one of the thicker types of window-tinting film, which makes it a good option to reduce UV rays that come through your window and reduce heat, too.
Ceramic window tint has the benefit of being more shatter-resistant but tends to be more expensive.
To better understand how window tint works, it’s a good idea to visit a reliable auto shop to discuss the different options for window tint, how each one works, and how their prices and application methods differ.
As you’re looking into window tinting, remember that state and local laws where you live might dictate how tinted your windows can be.
