If you hear the word “ceramic” and think of figurines sitting on your grandmother’s shelf, you may be wondering what ceramic window film actually is and how it works.
Ceramic window film is a type of clear or tinted window film that can be applied to windows and glass doors in your vehicle, home or commercial building. The film is comprised of micro-thin layers with ceramic-based nanoparticles. Unlike older technology window films, there are no metallic particles in the film, so it does not conduct electricity or block Wi-Fi, GPS or satellite radio signals.
Ceramic window film can be completely clear, lightly tinted or darkly tinted. The revolutionary clear film blocks the UV rays and heat of the sun as well as darker tinted films, giving you the option to have all the benefits of window tint without changing the appearance of your windows.
