Everyone wants a film that looks good, but there’s more to the color than just style. When a film fades, it loses crucial performance. A good film has a Color Stability number below 1 (<1). This means that the color will stay true over the course of time.

Clarity is the films’ ability to bond to the glass and cure or set-up clearly. A number below 1 (<1) on the Haze meter ensures that there will be no cloudy or “hazy” look. Ask the dealer how their film performs on the “Haze” scale.
A good film is constructed so that it is easy for the dealer to handle and install. This ensures that there will be no damage done to your car because of issues the installer had while working with the film.
Too hot inside your car? Excessive heat creates an uncomfortable atmosphere and can damage your car’s interior. When a film fades, it loses crucial performance capabilities.
When choosing window film, the number of options available is overwhelming. At Rayno Window Film, we want you to know how to choose window tint that will meet your needs, yet we know how frustrating it can be to have so many choices available. Here are some tips to help you choose the best window film that will give you all of the benefits you want and the longevity you need.
Types of Window Tint
The first step in narrowing down your window tint choices is understanding the different types of window film on the market today. Most window tint is either non-reflective film or metalized film. Both provide heat and glare control, but metalized film has a reflective surface that provides additional privacy. Many states do not allow metallic, reflective tinting on vehicles.
The materials used to create window tint also vary from one product to the next. Most manufacturers offer dyed film, carbon film or ceramic film. Rayno Window Film creates a fourth category — nano carbon ceramic. This hybrid of carbon and ceramic offers the benefits of both in one long-lasting product.
Features of Window Film
As you’re considering the various types and styles of window tint for your car, you will need to understand the various window film choices in order to choose the right one. Breaking down your options based on the features of the various products on the market may help. Some of the features you may look for include:
- Shade — The shade is the color of the window tint. You will want a tint that is in line with state laws — as many states ban certain colors — and is aesthetically pleasing to your vehicle’s overall look.
- Color stability — How well will the color hold up over years of exposure to UV radiation? Look for window tint choices with long color stability. A color stability rating of less than 1 is excellent.
- Clarity — For your safety, you need window film for your car that offers clear visibility, reducing reflection and improving clarity during the day and at night.
- Solar control — If it’s too hot inside your car, solar control is critical. Excessive heat creates an atmosphere that’s uncomfortable and unsafe for your car’s interior.
Which window tint is best? One that has good solar control, good clarity and good color stability — and comes in a shade that you like.
