Carbon vs Ceramic Window Tint: Is The Extra Cost Worth It?

UV protection automotive window tint isn’t new on the market. The first window tint applied to vehicles was an unevenly dyed film prone to cracking and fading. It would eventually turn purple and make it more difficult to see.

Unlike that short-lived dyed film, carbon window tint will not fade with time. It’s cost-friendly, has better clarity, heat, and UV rejection.

Beyond that is ceramic film; the highest quality of window tint film, and also the most expensive It doesn’t contain metal, dye, or carbon, but instead a kind of ceramic particle that is both nonconductive and nonmetallic.

So, if both carbon window tint and ceramic window tint are high quality and long-lasting, is it really worth it to spend the extra money on ceramic? The answer is that it comes down to preference.

When deciding between ceramic or carbon window tint, first think about how long you plan on having your vehicle. If it’s a car that you’ll likely keep for a long time, or if you have sun- or heat-sensitive skin, you would choose ceramic tint. If you want UV protection and privacy, but a more budget-friendly option, then carbon is ideal for you!
