If there are water droplets present when you apply the tint to the window, they can cause bubbles. These droplets generally evaporate within 15 days, but if not, then that is a sign of poor application. There can be air bubbles, too, and to prevent those, the application requires a professional hand.
Air bubbles, water bubbles, and trash bubbles. Large air bubbles are the ones I just mentioned, they are usually an inch or more in diameter and are caused by tint/adhesive failure. Small air bubbles (¼ inch or less) can be caused by an improper installation, but are pretty uncommon.
Window tint bubbles are unattractive and can be frustrating to deal with. Click here to read Rayno's guide on how to remove and prevent.
Using the safety pin; go to each air bubble and pop it. Make a hole that is very small and do not tear the car window tint. A quick poke through the film.
Is it normal to still see the bubbles. They said that I have to wait 3-5 days for the tint to finish curing and that I should not roll the windows down.
Bubbles In The Tint During & After Installation. When your tint is first installed there will be some noticeable bubbles in the tint that may linger for up to a week or ten days, dependent on outside temperature and the amount of direct sunlight. These bubbles may look like golf ball dimples or appear to be streaky.
Hi all, I had my car tinted a few days ago, and notice that rear window has a bunch of tiny air bubbles - look like small white dots maybe 1mm in.
Got the car tinted on Saturday..so we're going on Day 3. Still see a bunch of little air bubbles on the side windows. Now from what I've read.
Window tinting can go bad if not properly applied. It can peel, or bubble, which not only looks awful but also prevents it from doing its job.
The vehicle done has small portal windows on the front and back. I have no doubt these are a pain to tint. Both portal windows that were tinted.
Just got a new car tinted with Llumar ceramic and after a week 3 small bubbles have appeared on the bottom of the window (photo below).
Only one person could properly get away with purple windows (RIP Prince!) ... A good tint installer will minimize the risk of bubbles.
