How long does it take to tint the car?

On average a sedan style vehicle can take between 1 and a half to two hours. However, if there is old window film on the car that will need to be removed first, so this might take 2 to 4 hours to get done. But it all depends on the size of the car, the amount of windows on the vehicle, and so on.

I have seen some cars on the road with bubbly tint. Why?

Cars fitted with plastic or dyed film will all bubble and blister eventually, this usually happens faster in summer. It is not the quality of the installation it is simply a low-end quality product that only lasts a maximum of 3 to 5 years. Prior to today’s metalised tints, all films were plastic or dyed.

Will the wind film/tint go all the way to the edge of the window and will the rear window be in one piece?

On 95% of vehicles the film will go all the way to the edges and the rear window can be installed in one piece. The exception to this is a few rare vehicles where this procedure is not possible.

What can I clean the window with?

Make sure you wait at least 1 week before you clean the windows after the window tinting film has been installed in your car. The reason for this is Moisture on the outside edge can affect the freshly installed film as it can get sucked under the film and create bubbles.

When you do wash the windows make sure the cloth or pad you use is not abrasive.

How long do I need to keep my windows up after the installation of the window film/tint?

It is recommended that you leave your windows up for 3 to 4 days.
