All window film deteriorates with age and eventually will have to be removed. Two of the most common symptoms of dying film are the dreaded "purple film" and the "bubbling film".
Purple film is caused by non-metallic dyes in the film breaking down and changing colour. Bubbling film is a sign that the adhesive used to apply the tint to the window is failing. After a single bubble appears, many more will follow.
We recommend that window film is removed by a professional however if you feel up to the challenge and have the correct equipment then you can do it yourself.
The rear window in a car is generally the most difficult to remove as you need to avoid damaging the demister lines. The rear window needs to be heated up with steaming machine, so that the glue moistens and the chance of removing the film off in one or several pieces increasing. If the film comes off in pieces which is some circumstances is unavoidable, then you are going to wish you had just paid someone to do it! In these circumstances sometimes a razor blade needs to be used and in this case the demister lines cannot be saved.
Some tint is so old and the glue will seem like it cannot be removed.
We can make the process simple by a mild cut and polish with our special diamond abrasives.
