Types of sedan window tinting

Sedan is your best friend. It helps you daily and makes your life easier and more comfortable. There are a few types of window films that we can recommend for sedan window tinting:

  • Clear window tint — one of the most commonly used for car window tinting. It doesn’t darken the windows but still protects people and the car’s interior from glare, radiation, and UV rays
  • Carbon window tint — a very good quality automotive film, which contains charcoal particles, giving a posh matte dark look to the vehicle windows and makes the tint durable
  • Ceramic window tint — one of the best and newest films on the market. It contains nano-ceramic particles which do not interfere with the visible light but improve heat rejection and block harmful UV rays, reduce sun glare, and also make the film super strong and durable.
