Have you ever thought about what can harm your window tints? Tinting your windows is becoming more popular for a number of reasons. For example, if you have a really dark or black window, you will definitely want to tint it to help improve the view. But, besides that, tinting your windows can have a number of other benefits. Here, we will look at some of the common problems that occur with tinting and how some simple changes to your tinting can fix them.
The most common problem that occurs with tinting is that some of it stick to the glass when it is being applied. This results in a fogging problem. If you notice fogging when you are driving into a foggy day, it means that one of your drops of tint is getting stuck to the glass. While there are some things that can damage your tinting and make it useless, such as metal adhesives or foreign objects sticking to the glass, a number of everyday items are not going to cause any damage.
When you see frost on the glass of your window, this often indicates that a layer of adhesive has been placed on the glass. This often occurs when someone has painted on the tint directly or covered it with a protective sheet. While you can remove the adhesive and the tint, you need to ensure that it doesn’t come off on its own. You should therefore clean the tint before using it again, and if the fogged glass cannot be cleaned, you should take measures to get rid of the former.
Secondly, you might notice that the tint starts to chip after a while. One of the biggest causes of this is the tints coming off too quickly. If you are constantly in a rush and are always changing the tints, you will find that they are slowly getting dislodged. The only way to solve this is to use a special sealant, and even then, it would be better to allow the windows to air dry for a few days.
