Carbon window-tinting film doesn’t have metal in it, so there is no issue with cell phones and radio transmission when it is used. Carbon window-tinting film is dark and matte-finished, so it provides a tasteful option on windows. The carbon content of the film blocks about 40% of the infrared light (the kind that causes warmth) that enters through the windows. So it keeps your vehicle cool.
Carbon window-tinting film is about as effective as other varieties in blocking heat; its use will effectively cool inside space while also helping prevent fading to upholstery. Thus the air conditioning will not need to work so hard to cool the space during the summer, nor will the heating system be so heavily impacted during the winter.
Unlike dyed film, carbon film will not fade with time.

What is Window Tinting?
Our Carbon-based window film series is made using Carbon Black technology which uses carbon for its color and not dye. (Dye turns purple). This series has increased solar benefits when compared to dyed and HP films and comes in three shades with a Lifetime Warranty. Carbon Film will never fade to purple. It is constructed with Nano particles of carbon in between the layers which enables the film to be extremely color stable. Our Carbon film is non-metal and will not cause any signal interference.
Benefits of Carbon Window-Tinting:
Our Carbon Window Film utilizes the most advanced automotive carbon technology in the industry.
Resistant to Color Change
Constructed with zero dye, Carbon will never fade or change color due to new generation 5 carbon technology.
Extensive UV Protection
Carbon has increased solar benefits over most other films due to Nano technology in the hard coat. Blocks over 99.9% of A, B, and C ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun that can lead to skin cancers and skin damage.
Beautiful Charcoal Color
Available in a beautiful, natural charcoal color that is sure to give any vehicle a bold look that you will get compliments on.
Carbon offers a better value by absorbing more solar energy and eliminating fade & color change so common with dyed films.
We rely on carbon alone to give the product its beautiful colors & consistent shades without the need for dye or pigment.
More Heat Rejection
Nano particles of carbon found in the laminate adhesive allows Carbon to block up to 67% of infrared radiation (IR) heat.
Carbamate HD™ Adhesive
Our proprietary high-density adhesive lasts longer, bonds faster, and improves overall customer satisfaction.
Constructed as a traditional 2ply, 1.5mil film, Our Carbon Film contains nano particles in between two weatherable layers of polyester that allows the product to block out most of the solar energy dyed film lets through. All of this is tied together with our superior Carbamate HD™ adhesive system designed to last longer, bond faster, and improves the ease of installation.
Does our Carbon film block UV rays?
YES! In fact all our films, from color-stable dyed, and our 3 Performance Films -Carbon, Nano-Ceramic, and UltraNano Ceramic – block 99% of UVA & UVB & UVC. In fact, the Skin Cancer Institute recommends window film in general to protect people from skin cancers. With our Carbon film installed on your car’s windows, you get the equivalent of a 300 SPF or higher sunscreen!
Why should you consider Carbon?
Because this film actually ABSORBS Infra-Red radiation – Offering More Protection than Dyed Films. Unlike Color Stable Dyed Films, Carbon window tint offer greater comfort from the sun’s killer rays! These window films not only look great, perform well, and make your car look amazing, but they cost about $60 less than the next better performing film -Nano-Ceramics. If you are on a budget and like the HEAT MANAGING properties of Ceramic Films but the cost is a prohibitive, our Carbon films may be the answer for you.
What’s Legal in PA?
It’s important to note that each state has regulations regarding the amount of tint allowable. According to PennDOT, tint is not allowed on the windshield of a vehicle except for the top four inches to shade the sun. The front side windows and backseat windows must allow for more than 70 percent of light to come in the vehicle. The rear window can be tinted. Vehicles exempt from this rule include emergency, government or any vehicle with a valid certificate of exemption.
