PREPPING YOUR GLASS
Scrape, scrub, rinse, repeat. We ensure your windows are 100% clear of contaminants before tinting so don’t stress about cleaning them too much before we start, although we do charge for existing window film removal or old tint glue removal.
EXISTING FILM OR GLUE REMOVAL
Please be sure to check your vehicles glass for existing window film or old film residue and let us know prior to booking. Removal can be very time consuming so we do charge for this service. Film removal can take up to 2 hours for a full vehicle, sometimes even longer.
We do require somewhere completely wind free in order to tint your vehicle. Even the slightest breeze can pick up dust and contaminants which can easily blow between the film and glass upon installation. When we cannot control the environment around us we cannot control the outcome of your tint. A mostly enclosed garage or warehouse is ideal for a 100% clean finish.
Heat shrinking is generally needed on most rear windscreens and some side windows. For mobile service we will require access to a power point to operate our heat gun.
NO GLASS REMOVED
All windows are tinted in place. We do not remove glass on 99/9% of vehicles for an efficient and risk free install. Some unique vehicles may require door panel removal for ease of installation.
Most smaller vehicles take around 1.5 hours to tint. Sedans, wagons & diggers generally up to 2 hours and vehicles such as campers & classic cars can sometimes take up to 3 hours. We do not like to rush so lenience is appreciated.
FILM CURING TIME
Window film is installed with a special mounting solution to allow us to slide the film correctly into position upon installation. We squeegee 99% of this solution out however the remaining thin layer needs to dry naturally. During this process it will pool into little “moisture blisters” which usually takes around 48-72 hours to disappear. You MUST leave your windows up for 48 hours after install.
CLEANING YOUR FILM
Your new window film requires little to no maintenance once cured. All that is required is that you stay away from ammonia based glass cleaner, abrasive materials and harsh chemicals. A microfiber cloth, hot soapy water or tint-safe glass cleaner should remove 99% of grime.
