At Vivid, we've built our business around excellent workmanship and premium quality products. Therefore, we do not sell economy tints that are known to fade, peel, bubble, and offer minimal heat rejection and warranties. Instead, we use superior quality Kavaca automotive window films by Ceramic Pro. An advanced heat-rejecting film with a Lifetime Warranty. We use state-of-the-art installation software and advanced techniques to ensure a Satisfaction Guaranteed installation.


There are two categories of window tints:

  • Economy Tints

  • Premium Tints

At Vivid, we do not offer economy tints.

Economy tints are known to fade, peel, develop bubbles and offer minimal heat rejection. They usually have either short term or zero manufacturer warranty. Economy tints are also known as:

  • Dyed Tint

  • Metalized Tint

  • Hybrid Tint

Dyed tints may have a nice appearance initially, but they tend to delaminate, develop bubbles, and fade. They're also quite inefficient at blocking heat from the sun.

Though the upfront cost of dyed tint may seem like a deal, it will eventually become very unsightly, and the need to remove the film and replace it will cause the original cost to nearly triple.


Metalized tints last longer and reject heat better than dyed tints. Still, they tend to fade, and have a shiny appearance that is undesirable to most people. In addition, the metal particles in the dye can interfere with technology like cell phone signals and tire-pressure monitoring systems.

Hybrid tints are a combination of  dyed and metalized tints.  They continue fall short in color stability, heat rejection and durability.






KAVACA Ceramic IR Window Films by Ceramic Pro are engineered using nano-ceramic particles and infrared blocking materials, allowing the film to reject up to 96% of heat-producing IR rays from entering your vehicle. In addition, the advanced proprietary technology in Kavaca window tint is metal free to ensures zero signal interference, and offers superior clarity, and nighttime glare reduction. Kavaca advanced window films are available in multiple VLTs (shades)– each backed by a LIFETIME WARRANTY.
KAVACA Window Tint has been designed and tested with extensive research to give you the sleekest looks and performance. All Ceramic Pro and Kavaca products are manufactured using superior-quality materials and the highest quality control standards.

What Is The Legal Window Tint Darkness In Columbia, South Carolina?

The percent of visible light allowed through your car windows is called VLT: Visible Light Transmission. The shade percentage of your window tint is also the VLT number.

  • Rear Window: Any darkness can be used.

Is Reflective Window Tint Legal In South Carolina?

Window tint can reflect incoming light and reduce glare and heat. However, South Carolina window tint law prohibits certain window reflection when using a window tint. Therefore, mirror-like tints and colored tints are currently illegal in South Carolina.

Tint reflection for sedans:

  • Front Side windows: Must be non-reflective. 

  • Back Side windows: Must be non-reflective.

Tint reflection for SUVs and vans:

  • Front Side windows: Must be non-reflective.
