Q. When can I wind my windows down?

Q. I had my car window tinted yesterday and it has bubbles in the windows, is this normal?
A. Window tinting films are applied with a slippery water solution and there will be a minimal skim of water left between the film and the glass. As the film dries the skim of water remaining between the film and the glass collects together and forms very small pools of water that appear as bubbles which evaporates through the film itself. This is the normal drying procedure of all window tinting films.
Q. There are smudge marks all over the inside of my windows, why is that?
A. When window film is applied whether on a car or home/office when squeegeed there will be soap smudge marks left on the film. This will easily clean off with a damp soft cloth or chamois after the film has completely dried. This is normal procedure with window tinting.
Q. Can you remove old film off my car or home/office?
A. Yes, we can remove existing film off your car, home or office windows.
Q. Why has my car window tint bubbled and why does it appear as a purple colouring?
A. A cheaper dyed quality window film tends to lift off the glass giving it a bubbled look. The purple colouring represents the dye’s discolouring.
Q. Will Solartint films fade or change colour?
A. Solartint only uses Madico fade free films that have a lifetime guarantee on fading bubbling and discolouring.
