do you use TAP WATER in your solution?


Guest

Don't laugh folks I have been tinting for a quarter of a century, I recently encountered a problem with contamination.

I was in dismay because I consider myself a seasoned professional in the tinting business. but this problem had me baffled.

I removed all the equipment out of my shop, washed the ceiling, floors and all my fixtures, I went back to work the next day with the same results scattered contamination! I tinted a glass 3 times on a Nissan truck with all the rubber pulled and door panels removed... BUT THE TINT WAS STILL FULL OF TRASH what the hell. I give up so I take my lunch break and go to the east side of town, I usually eat on the other side of town boy am I glad that I had a taste for BBQ today. as I went this this way what do I see, the Local city employees are replacing a water main. I scratch my head and say HMMM> after lunch I stop of at the local ACE hardware and pick up a 2 gallon sprayer ,10 feet of clear hose a lawn mower in line fuel filter, and a couple of the cloth paint strainers.

I assemble the contraption add a 1/2 bottle of J&J and fill it up with H2O problem solved.

So does everyone else filter their water?

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.
