Your East Brunswick, New Jersey, and Brick, New Jersey Tint Shop Tells All

If “ceramic” has you thinking of the knick knacks on your gran’s mantle, then Auto Image is here to change your mindset.

Ceramic technology has come a long way over the years, and it’s useful for so many more things than figurines, dinnerware, and bathroom tiles. Today, if you visit one of our Auto Image locations on the Jersey Shore, you’d even see ceramic window tint available as an option for your vehicle.

What is Ceramic Window Tint Made Of?

Ceramic window tint comes in the same thin sheets as standard tint, but it’s coated with ceramic particles, through the use of nano-ceramic technology during production. These particles reflect the sun away from your vehicle, so this window tint repels UV rays, sun glare, and heat.

So, while this premium window tint isn’t just sheets of opaque, brittle ceramic, it does contain the very same materials also in traditional ceramic objects. And unlike “regular” window tint, ceramic tint is not dyed or metallised to get the job done.

What are the Benefits of Ceramic Window Tint?

In general, window tinting delivers several benefits. But ceramic window tint has its own unique set. With a ceramic tint product, you’ll get:

How Does Ceramic Tint Compare to Other Products?

Professionally-applied window tinting is beneficial in some ways, regardless of the type you choose. However, when you compare our 3M Ceramic IR tint to others we carry, you’ll find that the Ceramic tint functions very differently.

Dyed Tint: Dyed window tint is the least costly of all window tint options, but it can fade over time and is generally used to alter the appearance of a vehicle. Ceramic window tint will never fade or change opacity.

Metallic Tint: Metallic tint does a good job of reflecting UV rays and heat away from your vehicle. Unfortunately, it can interfere with your cell phone service, GPS, and radio reception. 3M Ceramic IR tint is good at its job without the added barriers to enjoying your mobile technology.

Carbon Tint: Carbon window tint won’t interfere with your mobile electronics, but it prevents only 40 percent of infrared sunbeams from entering your vehicle, compared to the 95 percent ceramic tint blocks.

While all window tint provides benefits, ceramic tint leads the pack in terms of offering the most protection and effectiveness.

Is It Worth It?

As you’d imagine, ceramic window tint is a more premium option than traditional products.

However, in exchange for that slightly higher price tag, you’re getting a spectrum of benefits that you’ll enjoy for the duration of your vehicle ownership.

We think that makes ceramic window tint totally worth it.
