There are so many reasons why you should get window tints installed on the windows of your vehicle—they protect vehicle drivers and passengers from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, they provide a minimal level of shatter resistance if the windows were to break, and they offer some amount of privacy—but the last thing a car owner wants from their car’s window tint is for it to look horrible!
If you’ve recently had window tint installed on the windows of your vehicle and there are bubbles in the film, no need to worry just yet. But if your vehicle has had window tint for a while and you’ve just noticed new bubbles forming, there is a reason for that—and a solution. All in all, there are many reasons why window tint acquires bubbles. Keep reading to find out why bubbles appear in window tint.
Air Bubbles or Water Pockets Directly After Installation
Right after new window tint is applied to car windows and for the first few days following, the tint might look cloudy or you might notice small bubbles forming underneath the film. Know that this is a common occurrence with newly installed window tints. The moisture will more than likely evaporate on its own and the tints will be as smooth as can be.
When you have window tint installed to your car windows for the first time, the person who installs the tint should tell you a couple of things about how to properly care for the windows. For example, you should not clean your windows or roll them down for a few days after having window tint installed. If you do, you risk pulling the film away from the window before the tint is fully dry.
Harmful Ultraviolet Rays and Excessive Heat Build-Up Causes Bubbles
Unfortunately, in extremely hot locations, such as Henderson, Nevada, harmful UV rays and heat build-up can cause bubbles to form in window tint. If you reside in the Henderson, Nevada area or another warm-weather place and you notice bubbles forming in the film of your vehicle’s window tint, the sun is probably the culprit.
If this happens to your car, all you can really do is remove the tint and reinstall new film; however, you can prevent this from happening in the first place by installing high quality window tint that has 99% UV protection.
