Mobile Car Tint Installation: Action Tint Mobile Car Window Tinting can install window tint almost anywhere, and have amazed not only customers but other businesses in all areas of the very good quality installation. Keeping in mind, that I have been installing window tints since November 1993, and Natasha has been installing window tints since April 2004.
Action Tint commenced trading on the 29th of April 2004 by Martin Sanchez, and Natasha Covich.
The window tint for the rear screen is prepared on the outside of the glass. We custom cut templates for the side windows & then cut the tint on a cutting table / board. We then mold the tint with a powerful heat gun to fit it in one piece with no bubbles.
Molding and shaping the rear window tint will allow the window to be tinted on the inside of the rear screen in one piece avoiding splice lines or join up lines. This process will also avoid the window tint from blistering or bubbling after time.
Molding and shaping the window tint for the side wind up windows, also makes it easier for the installer to custom fit the top edge. This means the window will be tinted to the top edge of the glass with no gaps. This also helps the window tint to not peel from the top edge. (Keep in mind that the rubber surrounding the glass from the inside needs to be in good condition). By preparing the window tint this way, will also avoid spears. (long candle looking bubbles that appear from the sides and bottom edge of the windows).
Door trims of most vehicles are removed from the door to ensure that the washing and detailing of the glass is done to perfection prior to the fitting of the window tint. Some vehicles only require to remove only a top strip. This process also helps the installer to apply the tint without creases, gaps and avoids the tinted window peeling from the bottom edge of the glass with the friction caused by the window winding up & down. This also avoids the window tint to D’laminating. (splitting or separating layers of tint & scratch resistant coating)
All top edges of wind up windows are custom fitted. This means that we cut the top edge of the tint with a sharp knife right to the edge of the glass on a sharp angle. This avoids gaps, and gives the window a professional looking finish. (we do not use files to custom fit top glass edges). With our practice, we use a knife blade that is suitable.
Using a file to custom fit, can easily cause damage the top edge of the glass & are not common practice with Action Tint. This part of the process is important to avoid film catching (peeling) on the top edge while winding glass up, and the angle used will avoid the film to De-laminate.
On average, we take a good 3-4 hours from start to finish to install your window tints.
This info is based on a mobile service for a sedan or wagon. After we finish the job, your windows can be used immediately!
We recommend your vehicle to be washed & vacuum prior to having your window tints installed.
