Your Windshield Tinting Options

Deciding to have your windshields professionally tinted comes with many benefits, from reducing glare to protecting you from UV rays. While car window tints are essentially the same in terms of what they do and how they work, there are various types of tints you can choose from to better cater to your specific needs and preferences.

Diamond Auto Glass specializes in windshield tinting in Phoenix, AZ. When you come to us for a windshield tinting service, we’ll offer you the following tint options.


One of the most common windshield tinting options is carbon. This is because carbon car window tints are an efficient and long-lasting option. You likely won’t be needing untimely window tinting repair. This type of tint will also help you reduce the sun’s effect inside your car, like increased temperatures by 40%.


Metalized tints are typically made of metal micro-particles that keep the sun away from your car through reflection. Moreover, If you are looking for an option that gives your vehicle windshield that slicked and shiny look, then a metalized tint is your best option. Metalized tints will also provide your car with scratch-resistant windows, so scratched-up windows would be one less thing to worry about when you come in for windshield tinting services.

However, the downside of a metalized tint is that it might interfere with GPS or radio signals, prompting you to get a window tinting replacement after a while.


Another great car window tinting option is the dyed tint which, as the name suggests, uses several dyed film layers. The layers help absorb sunlight that’s getting into your car, thus reducing your car’s interior temperatures. It’s worth noting that dyed tinting is the most popular and affordable tint option. However, dyed tints have some limitations as they have a short lifespan because they tend to fade.


A hybrid tinting option is the combination of metalized and dyed tints. It’s the amalgamation of the features of its namesakes. A tint that’s dyed gray and mixed with titanium metallic flakes is a feasible option in addressing the drawbacks associated with metalized and dyed tints. For example, hybrid tints are not too dark and not too reflective either. Above all, it offers a middle ground between the two extremes, providing you with a tint that is also ideal for night driving.
