First, we will examine the specific benefits of XPEL’s patented nano-ceramic technology. Then, we will compare it to other window tints on the market. Finally, we will address some frequently asked questions about ceramic window tint and XPEL specifically.

8 Benefits of XPEL Window Tint

1. Recommend by the Skin Cancer Foundation for UV Protection

While Vitamin D is an essential nutrient, prolonged exposure to UV rays can put you and your passengers at risk for a variety of sun-related skin conditions. The most common and concerning is skin cancer. XPEL’s nano-ceramic window tint blocks 99.9 percent of the UV radiation you can absorb simply by driving in your car.

This heightened protective layer has earned it a recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation. 

2. Superior Heat Rejection

One of the primary reasons for choosing XPEL Window Tint is its superior heat rejection capabilities. During scorching summer days, your vehicle's interior can become uncomfortably hot, leading to discomfort and increased use of air conditioning. XPEL Window Tint effectively blocks out a significant portion of infrared and ultraviolet rays, reducing heat buildup inside your car. This not only makes your drive more pleasant, it also helps preserve your vehicle's interior from sun damage, such as fading and cracking.

3. Improved Gas Mileage

According to Consumer Reports, you should ‘expect a drop from 1 to 4 mpg with the air conditioning running.’ Thanks to the superior heat rejection provided by XPEL window tint, you are less dependent on AC and can save on fuel.

4. Enhanced Privacy and Security

Privacy is another key benefit of XPEL Window Tint. Reducing visibility into your vehicle's interior adds a layer of security and privacy, deterring potential thieves and safeguarding your personal belongings. Whether parked in a crowded urban area or driving on busy highways, XPEL Window Tint provides peace of mind.

5. Glare Reduction

Glare from sunlight or headlights can be a major distraction while driving, potentially compromising safety. XPEL Window Tint significantly reduces glare, allowing you to maintain clear visibility and focus on the road ahead. This is particularly beneficial during dawn, dusk, or when driving in bright sunlight.

6. Customizable Options

XPEL offers a range of tint shades and levels, allowing you to customize the appearance of your vehicle while meeting your specific needs. Whether you prefer a darker tint for maximum privacy and heat rejection or a lighter tint for a subtle enhancement, XPEL has options to suit every preference.

7. Durability and Warranty

XPEL Window Tint is known for its durability and longevity. It is scratch-resistant, ensuring that your tint maintains its sleek appearance. Additionally, XPEL provides a comprehensive warranty, giving you added confidence in your investment.

8. Professional Installation

In order to maintain XPEL’s warranty, they require the window tint is professionally installed by a certified XPEL dealer. As a certified dealer, we can personally attest to the importance of properly prepping a vehicle and applying film to ensure a high-quality finished product.

How Does XPEL Compare to Other Window Tint Brands?

Which is better, 3M or XPEL?

3M is one of the most popular ceramic window tints on the market, and with good reason. It’s a strong product and, in many respects, just as good as XPEL. However, XPEL has more robust self-healing properties than 3M window tint, making it a superior product. 

Is LLumar or XPEL better?

LLumar is another well-respected ceramic window tint. However, when comparing the IR (infrared) rejection of LLumar tint and XPEL tint, XPEL has a higher IR rejection rating. The IR rejection rating indicates how much infrared heat a film allows to penetrate a vehicle. The higher the IR rating, the cooler and more comfortable your car’s interior will be on a hot day.
