What is Window Tinting?
Window tinting is a layer of film which is applied on residential and automotive windows mainly to block out the light or reject heat. The film is applied mainly on the inside and comes in a variety of shades. There are different types of window tint such as reflective, dyed, metallic etc.

Most frequent questions and answers
The silver border is a common occurrence when getting a car tinted. This is due to the little dot pattern around the edges of most back windows also known as the “Dot-Matrix”. When the film is first installed the edge may look un-even, however as the film continues to dry it will eventually even out leaving a frame around the edge.
We recommend 2-3 days after the tint is installed to give it time to dry and adhere properly. Rolling the window down before this period can cause issues such as peeling, bubbling etc.
This is a common question which we get, mainly due to when people are observing the installation process. The film is cut, shrunk and moulded on the outside and installed on the inside.
When a window is tinted we push as much water out of the window as possible. However there will always be a bit of water and moisture left in the tint, these may appear as water bubbles however they should cure once completely dried.
