I have been in my new location about 3 months now and I have more "re-do's" than I have ever had. now matter how much cleaning and precaution I take there is an obserd amount of contamination for what I am accustomed to doing. now in my other location I rarely ever had to re tint a window unless there was a light gap, corner peeling, etc.......

I am blaming all the contamination on a Steele Mill that is about 3 blocks away. could this be the problem??? I h@te to give up the spot b/c it is a prime location and the rent is cheap, I alos feed off of the car accesory shop next door. is there a solution to the air problem or do I need to move?

Maybe the problem is you have WAY much better lighting in your new shop and only NOW you can see your work quality :dunno

Just kidding ...yeah what I used to do when I did mobile tint and my environment was always changing , I'd have a filter fan...just turn it on and would filter your whole room in 5 min. Theyre only about $150

:dunno Might help to keep the doors closed to :dunno:dunno

Filter is good, especially one of those ionic type that draw airborne stuff to it and spit out air as fresh as after a rain... and if you already have heat & AC unit with the place, put a filter at the return and the delivery vents.

Mist everything during installing... mist the work board, mist the liner before it's removed, mist the floor ahead of carrying a piece of film to the car glass... you get the picture?

hey where could I look at one of those filter fans..... she there is no a/c or anything like that in the work bay so there is no filtration. I just keep it washed out pretty much. some of this stuff is starting to come together on how I can help the problem instead of moving... on the other post someone suggested just mocking up a wall and using tarps to "close" off a tinting bay then I could filter just that spot with one of those fans. the total size of the bay 3,000 sqft so I would need to isolate the tinting area.

I use a sprayer and blast behind the film once I get it on the window. This flushes out whatever I grabbed on the way to the window. Its the only way to rinse off what your fingers or anything else might get on the film. I dont ever get contamination once I got that sprayer. Get one with a nice long nozzle, that way you can flush out the lower corners of a back glass once you get it on the glass. It works, Im mobile too, try it.

That's a great idea too. I ocassionally have situations where I notice a couple specks in an area while applying. I simply pull the film back in that area and flush it with solution before continuing with the application. If a dog hair or something larger appears, it may take a little extra force (usually by brushing it with a fingernail), but it works well and reduces redos.

:lol2 we just moved into a steel building with no walls, also its been windy here lately so dust is blowing around (not the best tinting conditions). I dont blame the air for contamination because of the little time the film is actually exposede to the air. Maybe your water source at the new shop is the problem?
