You may wonder how automotive window tinting works and how the installation is done, especially if you want to add style and protection to your car. When properly applied to your vehicle, the tint can block the sun’s heat, and its harmful UV rays will not directly reach you and your car interior, making your car interior temperature cooler.
Tint installation may seem easy, but it actually requires skills to put it right. Here is how a professional detailer installs films on your car window.
First, the window is prepped for installation. The tint technician will thoroughly clean the interior and exterior windows. They will have to make sure that it is spotless and cleaned even the tiniest specs. It ensures that the tint gets applied on clean glass and will not result in air bubbles.
After cleaning the glass, it will get treated and installed with a thin polymer film layer. The technician will need to correctly measure and cut the film slightly larger than the window to ensure the entire surface is covered. The film is trimmed down later, and the film linear is removed after installation.
