Navigating the automobile tinting market can be overwhelming, especially for a first-time tinter. After having a glimpse into the brands of interest to you, the best natural step is to seek out a certified dealer of the product you believe is the best fit for your auto. In this article, we’ll be comparing the LLumar ATR Metallic tint against the Huper Optik Ceramic series. Both tints will naturally benefit the driver’s experience, improve UV protection for both the driver and the interior’s benefits, and can reduce painful heat build-up that so often occurs in the hot months – or for us Californians – all year round!

Let’s take a look at the specs themselves. The Huper Optik Ceramic line offers total solar rejection up to 70%, UV blocking up to 99.9%, visible light transmission of 6% – 85%, and has zero risk of discoloration or electronic signal interference.

The LLumar metalized window comes in with lower specs across the board, with total solar rejection up to 63%, UV blocking up to 99%, and visible light transmission of 5% – 55%. While it’s not a massive difference in protection, because the LLumar ATR window tints are comprised of a metallic compound, they have the capacity to interfere with electronic signals.

The metallic tint will decrease signal quality for cell phone reception, GPS, FM radio, and other mobile devices, while the Huper Optik utilizes an atomic-grade ceramic material which is highly durable and does not jeopardize signal quality.

While the Huper Optik line is typically on the higher end, the quality of investment is certain, and is backed by a lifetime warranty.
