Tint not sticking to defrost! Tips?


Recommended Posts

Once in a great while I'll get a car through here that the film just will not stick on parts of the defroster lines of the back window. Yesterday I was tinting a Mazda 6, piece of cake car and then I realized some of the defrost lines were preventing the film to stick, is there a way to fix this or do I just have to redo it? I heated it up from the outside and used my lil chizzler, that didnt help, I tried doing a relief cut on the edge of the defrost and pushing the water out towards the side which did not help either. I told the customer to leave their defroster on for a few days and if it didn't dry up I'm more than happy to redo it. Any help or tips or even an explination would be awesome, thanks guys!

I use an SOS pad, I used to use a blue scrubber but I scratched a few windows using it and stayed away from it. Where do you get 0000 steel wool? I heard of home depot but have never used it before. Also I am using Suntek HP film

I get mine at Lowes. I think it is used for staining furniture a lot, so you might want to look in that department. :beer

You'll find steel wool in the paint dept at Home Depot, next to the painters tape. BTW, I use 00 steel wool...it doesn't scratch and is much better at preventing 'peanuts' or 'bananas' from cropping up on defroster lines where more than a little heat shrinking is needed.
