How do I clean my windows after tinting?
You can clean your tinted windows using a soft clean cloth and a mild alcohol based cleaner or just using a mild soap and water solution, ammonia based products should not be used as they can damage the window film.
I've noticed my windows are a little hazy after tinting:
Newly applied window film takes 2 to 5 days to fully dry, and sometimes longer depending on film brand, type, and weather conditions. Until this time your tinted windows may appear hazy or lumpy, and it may seem to have water bubbles. Do not roll your tinted windows down until fully dry! If you have any doubts please ask our advice. As a general rule the warmer the weather and the more sunshine the quicker your window film will dry.
Why is there a slightly lighter area on some edges of my windows?
Most modern cars have a black ceramic 'frit' edge on the rear and side windows. Sometimes this ceramic edge is straight and flat, sometimes it will have a dotted edge. These black ceramic dots are quite thick on some cars and prevent the window film from sticking to the area between the dots. This results in a lighter looking strip trimming the glass. Typically this isn't very noticeable, however some cars have a wide band of dots trimming the top of the rear window. This area is so wide that the whitish looking area created is more pronounced. Unfortunately, the effect is unavoidable but is always minimized as far as possible, generally the darker the window film you have applied the more noticeable it can be.
There are small chips on the inside of my glass:
Caution should be used when releasing seat belts. Small chips can be made in the window film due to the seat belt hitting the glass as it is released. THIS IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY. Although should you be unfortunate enough to accidentally damage one of your windows we will offer you a discounted rate on re-tinting the window.
Imperfections / Spots on Glass:
Though we strive for perfection in our installations, due to the nature of the product, some degree of dust contamination and or minor imperfections can be present in every window film application (although we are always very careful to avoid this and will always make sure you are satisfied with the finished product), most imperfections are caused by pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted.
Small silvery looking spots or 'metal rubs' on some windows can sometimes be found, and are caused by a metalic object (such as a pram handle) rubbing against the inner surface of the glass during travel. This rubbing deposits metal onto the glass creating a silver or grey stain. Usually these these metal rubs aren't very noticeable and often aren't noticed until the windows become tinted as the change in contrast can highlight this, if there are marks on your glass a good way to minimize how noticeable they are is to choose a lighter shade of tint.
