Car Tinting FAQs

Car Tinting

There are many reasons to tint your car from protecting against health concerns, safety and privacy reasons, as well as preserving your interior in your car.

What is the curing process?
Curing is the time it takes for the water and adhesive to interact with each other and create a complete adhesion with the window glass. The more sunlight after the initial installation, the better. Please allow 48-72 hour to pass before rolling down windows. The windows might look hazy and watery until this drying time is completed.

Why does auto window film turn purple?
Inexpensive window film consists of polyester film dyed to achieve the desired color and darkness. The purple appearance is caused when the ultraviolet rays from the sun break down the dyes in poor quality film. Metalized film costs a little more but the metalized film process deposits aluminum, titanium or other metals on the polyester to replace the dyes, created on extremely stable products.

Why does film bubble?
Film bubbles because it is of poor quality and less expensive film. It is the result of a failure in the adhesive which releases a gas blistering between the layers of polester.

How should I clean the inside of the windows?
You should clean your film with dishwashing soap and water. Non-ammonia cleaning products can be bought at most retail stores. (Glass Plus is a great retail product)

Is there only one shade of film to choose from?
No! There are a wide selection of colors and shades with different light transmission levels to satisfy local tint laws. Our professional tinters will help you select the perfect professional grade film for your car, truck,  van, or SUV.

I contacted Florida Tinting initially to get some tinting work done on my building. When I found out they wrapped elevators and could put my company's logo on the back three panels, I immediately put them to work on that project. Overnight, they changed my outdated elevators to a modern wood grain look, making the elevators a showpiece of the building. Wrapping the panels gave them a very modern look at a significantly lower cost than replacing the panels. Since they applied the surface protector top coat the print looks amazing and is extremely durable. It has been on now for several months it still looks brand new. Robert and his team come highly recommended to anyone looking to update their elevators or anyone with window tinting needs.
