Tinting Outside


Hey guys, now I know it's really not ideal to be tinting cars outside but I no longer have a unit 'money issues'.

90% of the time it comes out looking great but on the odd occasion it doesn't...

I was just wondering for those of you out there that tint mobile and outside if you have any useful tips to minimize contamination.....

Like I said I know its not ideal but its got to do for now....!

Mobile tinters are the best in the industry... I've been a mobile tinter for most of my career.But I can honestly say there is a difference when I get to control the conditions I tint under. I just tinted a 5 series bmw in my shop. I didn't need to come back to rub out any dust specks anywhere after letting the job sit for 30 minutes. The car was under 8 4' quad 6500k lights. The thing was immaculate. There is a difference tinting outside or in controlled conditions. Since I've gone both ways, I believe I have something to say about it.

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.
