What Is Sputtered Film
Not all window films are exactly the same. In fact, there are lots of different ways to manufacture and apply window films. At the end of the day, quality window tinting is what’s important, and that’s what sputter window films are all about. Sputtered film tinting is a window film that is constructed from metal alloys, which is combined in a vacuum chamber with different gasses; and then applied onto the window. There are various alloys that can be used to manu-facture these films, some are lighter and some heavier, all of which have a different desired effect or tint. The metal layer in the film is very fine which means that the finish of the film is generally much lighter. And because of this fine finish, sputtered film is extremely effective in blocking radiation bands from direct sources of sunlight. The result is that sputtered film gives you a much subtler finish and your windows won’t have a visible reflective covering on them as in some other window tints.
How Is Sputtered Film Made?
Sputtering technology is applied through an interesting fabrication technique where a special vacuum chamber is used. Without trying to sound too technical here, the electromagnetic fields propel ions towards the metal with a gas such as Argon. This blast of ions loosens groups of atoms through short bursts, and then spreads them evenly across the film’s surface. It’s this even spread and fine layer of application that add to this quality window tinting method. Although the process is complex, it allows experts a great degree of control over the application and finish of the film.
