Say Goodbye to Glare and UV Rays: Watch the Video on How is Window Tinting Done at Ace Tinting

Window tinting is a process of applying a special film to the glass surfaces of a vehicle to reduce the amount of heat, glare and UV rays that enters the car. It is a relatively simple process but requires precision and attention to detail to get the best results.

Ace Tinting, a professional window tinting company, uses a systematic approach to make sure that every tinting job is done right. In this blog post, we will show you the step-by-step guide on how window tinting is done at Ace Tinting.

1. Preparation

The first step in the window tinting process is to clean the outside of the windows. This is to ensure that there is no dirt, dust or other contaminants that might affect the adhesion of the tint film.

2. Cutting the Tint Film

The next step is to place an oversized sheet of tint on the outside of the window and trim off the excess film. The film is then cut to the exact size to fit the glass.

3. Shaping the Film

The tint film is then subjected to heat to make it conform to the shape of the window. This step is important because it allows the film to fit the contours of the glass surface and eliminates the formation of wrinkles.

4. Cleaning the Glass

Before the tint film is installed, the inside of the glass must be thoroughly cleaned. This is to ensure that the film will adhere properly and there will be no bubbles or other imperfections.

5. Installing the Tint Film

The tint film is installed using a water-based slip solution, and once in the correct position, the water is removed using various squeegees. The film is then subjected to heat to remove as much water as possible.

6. Quality Check and Final Preparation

After the tint installation, the process is quality checked, and any necessary corrections are made. The vehicle is then prepared for handback to the owner.

So, you can enjoy the look and benefits of window tinting without having to worry about sacrificing any of the functionality of your car.
