Few things look better on a car than dark, sexy window tint; unfortunately, few things look worse than bubbled window tint. While it’s true that some bubbles are normal after installation and will likely go away on their own over time, some bubbles caused by poor installation or poor quality film may never go away. Here are some things to know about window tint bubbles.
First, you need to determine if what you’re seeing on the film are water bubbles, air/soap, or contamination. These look the same at first but can be quite different in terms of the steps you need to take to restore your tinted windows.
When most people think about window tint bubbles, what they are actually thinking about are blisters. These can look like bubbles at first, but over time these blisters will mushroom out and spread across the entire film. Blisters also take longer to develop than normal bubbles, sometimes developing months or even years after the film was installed. Blistering results when the film’s adhesive fails, which is sped up by the sun’s UV rays.
If you live in sunny South Florida, the best way to prevent window tint film blistering is to purchase a major brand name window tint that features a high-temperature adhesive system and superior UV protection capabilities. These kinds of window tint films are usually backed with a guarantee against fading and bubbling.
If you think you’re only dealing with simple air bubbles, you can easily enough get rid of them on your own using a few simple tools around the house.
