It Started with a Space Shuttle
It was widely known that ceramic tiles had the ability to block out a vast majority of harmful UV rays and heat. A product like this would add tremendous benefit to those who needed it most; those in space. Astronauts relied on the layers of protection provided by ceramic tiles to keep them safe during the incredible rise in temperature created by the fric-tion of re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere. Furthermore, ceramic film proved to block out infrared radiation by 91% and cut down Ultra Violet Rays by as much as 99%. It also cut down solar heat gain by 50%. Ceramic tiles proved to pro-tect many astronauts from the harmful effects of the heat by being applied to the space shuttles. It was these amazing properties that inspired the development of ceramic window tint.
Ceramic Film Revolutionizes Industry
Before ceramic window film was developed, there was a variety of metallic tints available. The problem was because of their metallic nature, these tints would often interfere with electronic devices such as radio’s, or even GPS systems at a later stage. Metallic tints also relied on various metal composites for their manufacturing. To solve these problems, Ce-ramic Film was developed. These tints not only lasted longer, but also rejected UV rays and the suns heat far better. And best of all, they didn’t interfere with electronic devices. Another amazing fact is that although Ceramic film blocked out the harmful rays from the sun, it was still transparent. This was a big draw card for many shop owners, who wanted their customers to be able to see in from the outside. And this led to many store front windows being installed with Ceramic Film which increased its popularity greatly.
