08 Dec Window Tint Removal
When window tint fails, especially on the rear screen of a vehicle, it will appear bubbled or distorted. This generally happens due to film adhesive failure. It is more common that this will happen with cheaper, dyed films, but it can happen to better quality films as well. The angle that the rear screen of a vehicle sits at means that the window is exposed to more direct sunlight, and the spectrum of lighting that hits the window will eventually break-down the components that the window film is made of, in particular, the adhesive.
Adhesive failure can happen to a quality window film after about 10-15 years, and can occur in as little as 12 months with a cheaper, dyed window film.
The process to remove window tint to minimise any risk involved with keeping intact the integrity of the demister bars and any radio antennas imbedded in the glass takes care and time.
Not all tint shops will remove window tint, bubbled or distorted, with the same process as House Of Tint. The process of using steam to soften the adhesive is vital to the integrity of any bars or antennas remaining on the glass.
Any adhesive residue left on the glass is carefully removed with specialised chemicals to breakdown the window tint glue and provide a streak free finish, so that new film can be applied to your vehicles windows.
(NB not all demister bars and antennas are manufactured and installed perfectly, and due to this, there can never be a 100% guarantee that damage will not occur. Our processes are designed to minimise the possible damage)
