How to Remove Air Bubbles from Your Car Window Tinting Film

Information Offered by a Professional Automotive Window Tinting Service Provider

A properly installed window tint film should never develop problems. However, since many installers still use outdated tinting methods and techniques, it’s not uncommon to experience problems with your car window tinting. One of the most common issues with auto glass tints is bubbling. Basically, air gets between the film and the glass, forming bubbles. This can drastically diminish the attractiveness of your car. The best way to fix this particular problem is to hire a professional automotive window tinting service provider. However, there are a also a few things you can do on your own.

The first thing you must do is move your vehicle to a sunny area. The warmth will soften the adhesive so that you can work with it easier. You should leave your car under the sun for about an hour or two, depending on how warm the day is. Once the glass gets warm enough, spray some water from a spray bottle over the tint film. Make sure you use the finest misting option on your spray bottle. You don’t want to drench the film, just moisten it enough to make the adhesive more malleable.

The next step of the process is to take a pin and pop each of the air bubbles. Make sure you don’t tear the film while you’re making small holes in it. You should also make sure that you don’t miss any bubbles. If a bubble is left behind, it may tear the film when you try to smooth it out.

Using a credit card, slide it across each bubble. Make sure you don’t apply too much pressure as you may tear the film. Make long, smooth strokes and hold the card at a 45 degree angle from the window.

If all this seems a bit too complicated for you, then you should hire a professional automotive window tinting service provider. Alliance Glass & Mirror is a reputable tinting contractor in Albuquerque NM. We have many years of experience and numerous satisfied clients.
