SolShield Window Tint Films
SolShield window tint not only looks great; it protects vehicle interiors from damaging UV rays. We make carbon and IR ceramic window films that deliver both superior performance and style. SolShield™ professional window tint films are among the best available for most vehicle window tint jobs.
Why Is Window Tint So Popular?
The side and rear windows of most modern vehicles have glass that is factory tinted, meaning the glass itself has the ability to prevent a certain amount of light and heat to pass through to the interior. The windshield and the driver and passenger side glass in the front doors, however, are tinted to a much smaller degree to allow for adequate exterior visibility for the driver in both day and night conditions.
Consumers use window tint to enhance the performance of vehicle window glass to keep the interior comfortable during the summer months, protect the interior from damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays in sunlight, and to make the vehicle look ‘cooler’ (fashionable and attractive).
What Window Tint Does
Automotive window tint covers a wide range of products consisting of a thin layer of a specialized film that adheres to the inside of vehicle window glass. The film is engineered to reject a specific amount of solar energy from passing through the covered glass, and professionally installed for proper appearance and performance.
Professional window tint comes in a variety of levels of darkness, which allow for a specific amount of light to pass though it. The darker the tint, the harder it is for light to pass through. Window tint is also engineered to reject specific amounts of UV light and infrared radiation (IR). Excessive amounts of UV light can damage human tissue, fabrics and leather. Too much IR generates heat levels which can make it difficult to be comfortable in a vehicle’s interior.

Carbon Tint vs. Ceramic Tint
Understanding the difference between ceramic and standard carbon window tint films will help you make the right customer recommendations. The two film types are similar in appearance and application, and both are non-metallized, non-fading, non-reflective, and scratch-resistant.
The differences are in heat and infrared rejection (IR) rate. IR Ceramic film provides superior performance when it comes to solar heat rejection. It is specifically engineered to keep vehicle interiors cooler by rejecting Infrared rays. Carbon window tint does not have this feature.
However, both offer equal UV ray protection of 99% across the board. So, if your customer isn’t interested in IR rejection, the less expensive carbon-based window film is a better choice. For significantly cooler interior temperatures, the IR ceramic option is recommended.
Caring for SolShield™ Solar Window Films
Professionally applied SolShield™ window tint requires minimal care to keep it looking and performing like news. When properly maintained, it can last up to 10 years. Incorrect maintenance can result in peeling, cracking, and bubbling that requires removal and re-tinting.
Fortunately, caring for window tint is easy when you know how to do it right!
- Clean the window tint every time the vehicle is washed.
- Wash car windows in a shaded area to avoid water spots.
- Always use microfiber cloths to avoid scratching the tinted surfaces.
- Use one cloth for washing and one for drying.
- Use ammonia-free soap / cleaners. Ammonia can reduce the quality of the tint.
- Keep away from the window edges when washing. Moisture can seep inside and under the finish.
- Always dry tinted windows immediately.
