Your new Tint Job and what to expect
Observe your window film at about 3-5 feet, look through it, not at it. Your film will take almost 30 days to fully cure. During this time the windows will appear hazy and there will be small water pockets caused by excess moisture trapped between the glass and the film forming a kind of "blister" Do not squeegee, prod or poke these water blisters. they will disappear once all the water has evaporated. DO NOT roll your tinted windows down until they are dry, 3-5 days, otherwise the film could peel.
The best way to clean your tinted windows is by using a soft cloth or regular paper towel (not the brown, scratchy stuff) DO NOT use ammonia based products such as Windex,unless they are labeled AMMONIA FREE do not use. Over time, the ammonia could react to the chemicals used in the film and cause the window film to become hazy and blotchy. stick to soap and water!
Though we strive for perfection in our installations, due the the nature of the product, some degree of dust contamination and or minor imperfections are present in every window film application, also pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted.
BLACK DOTTED EDGES
Most cars have a black ceramic "frit" edge on the rear window. Sometimes the ceramic edge is straight and flat, sometimes it will have dotted edge, these black ceramic dots are quite thick on most cars and prevent the window film from sticking in between the dots. This results in a whitish 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 window. This area will look less than perfect and most times not uniformed.
SEAT BELT CHIPS
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. We check ever tint job before it goes out of our shop, so there is no marks or chips in your new tint job.
