WINDOW TINTING TIPS
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
1. Do not roll your windows down for 3 – 5 days – We place the film down behind the window weather-stripping but it needs time to adhere to the glass and the water to dry.
2.Do not use anything abrasive when cleaning the film – Paper towels are fine but do not use any type of scouring pad.
3. Do not use any window cleaners with ammonia- The best cleaner (and least expensive and healthier) is to use a couple of drops of baby shampoo or dishwashing liquid in a spray bottle.
4. Do not let go of your seatbelt when you remove it- If you let go of your seatbelt as you remove it sometimes when it recoils it can hit the window and nick the film.
Lastly, remember the film needs time to dry and adhere to the glass therefore it may have some slight distortion and cloudiness which will eventually disappear once the film has completely cured.
We would like you to have some background knowledge on auto glass tinting. Although we use one of the best material films on the market, and do quality workmanship, there are some factors to deal with:
Dot Matrix are small dots the factory puts around the edge of some windows and along the back glass as a visual cosmetic border. These dots are basically bumps on the glass that may cause the film to stick on the dots instead of the window. This will not cause the film to peel but will seem silver in appearance. This is normal and will not disappear. Once the film dries, it’s sometimes possible to press them down to some degree.
CLOUDINESS OR A MILKY APPEARANCE
Because of the metallization process which our films undergo, much of the gel used in our application process gets trapped between the film and the glass and does not evaporate through the film as easily as a non-metalized film. This causes the film to have a “cloudy” or “milky” appearance. DO NOT GET ALARMED! It will disappear but it can take up to a couple of weeks, especially in colder climates. Gradually it will form small cloudy spots and eventually these will go away. If after a couple of weeks, you have not seen this cloudiness start to disappear let us know.
Customer accepts all liability for tints darker than the legal limit of 50% on DRIVER and PASSENGER FRONT windows.
We will not warranty any film that has been rubbed, scratched, hit, ECT by rings, jewelry, or any hard objects of any kind.
WINDOW TINT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In most cases yes, depending on how old the film is and whether or not a color stable film was used.
We recommend that you leave your vehicle windows rolled up for at least 48 hours after window film has been installed. This allows the film to cure and adhere to the glass before the window is moved.
No, window film nor the car’s rear defroster will be affected.
MCB Car Wash only installs window film on vehicles inside our clean, air-conditioned facility. This way we have complete control over the environment we install window film in. This is how you receive the most quality job.
Windshield: Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 5 inches of the windshield. Front Side windows: Must allow more than 50% of light in. Back Side windows: Any darkness can be used. Rear Window: Any darkness can be used.
Yes. As long as it is factory window tint, we can install window film directly on the glass. Factory window tint’s color is actually a pigment in the glass. Aftermarket window film also has many more solar benefits than factory window tint. Factory tint only rejects part of the UV rays, and only rejects a small amount of heat. Aftermarket window film rejects 99% of ultraviolet rays and between 35%-60% of heat, depending on the film level used. In addition to these benefits, darkening factory tinted glass will give you more privacy for storing your personal items in the back of the vehicle.
No. The adhesive is meant to adhere to glass only. Window film should only be applied to glass surfaces that have a smooth finish. Plastics, Plexiglas, or Lexan contain too much oil for the film to adhere properly for a long period of time.
