With the heat waves brought on by global warming car window tints are a must today. Not only do they shield you from the harsh rays of the sun, but they also protect the car's interiors from getting damaged with the UV rays and maintain a cool and comfortable temperature inside the car.

Naturally, this makes them a useful enhancement to your car. And the fact that they strengthen the glass of the windscreen and windows only makes them all the more a helpful addition to the car. So how do you select the one perfect for you?

Here's a breakdown of the different types of car window tints, their differentiating characteristics and how to identify the one perfect for you:

  • Black Tint - This is the darkest tint permitted for non-commercial vehicles. It keeps a huge percentage of the sun's glare and heat out, ensuring a comfortable amount of light and a cool temperature inside. Being non-metallic in nature it won't be a hindrance to your radio signal or mobile network reception.

  • Metallic Tint - Primarily known as a heat shield, metallic tint blocks out the heat more than any other substitute. While this ensures optimum comfort during travel it also prevents damages like wear and tear, fading, etc to the vehicle's interiors that are known to be caused by prolonged exposure to the sun's rays.

  • Budget Tint - As its name suggests, this option is perfect for you if you're running on a tight budget but don't want to miss out on good quality. It is effective in keeping the UV rays and sun's heat out and yet has the resilience to outlast other options within the same price range.

  • Commercial 20% film - Legalized purely for commercial use, if you have a vehicle being used for business, this option has 20% darkness offering privacy to keep out voyeuristic eyes and also ensures comfort for passengers. It is available in options of 15% and 5%, allowing you to select the one best suited to your needs.

  • Crystalline film - As premium as its name sounds, this window film serves 2 purposes in an intelligent way. It efficiently keeps the heat out while allowing a good amount of light inside. This allows you to experience the best of both, light and cool temperature. Most luxury vehicle-owners opt for this, so if your vehicle falls in the same category, it's safe to say you won't be disappointed.

  • UV Clear Tint - For those of you who want to enhance your car with tints but also do not want to tamper with its look, UV clear tint is the way to go. It gives you all the benefits of keeping the heat and UV rays out while maintaining the original look of the car.
