Black tint is the darkest legal tint on the market for non-commercial vehicles.

With black tint, the amount of UV light and glare coming through your windows is vastly reduced. This means your car interior will stay much cooler in the Brisbane heat.

Black tint is also non-metallic and won’t interfere with your radio signal or mobile reception.

Metallic tint acts like a heat shield, blocking more of the sun’s heat than any other tint.

This grey coloured tint will also protect your car interior extremely well from damaging UV rays.

For an even lighter tint with the same heat rejection, we also offer 3M Metal Tint.
