FAQ's

 

  • Can i heat shrink your films?

    Yes all our films are heat shrinkable except our safety films.

  • How hard is it to install window tint myself?

    If you take your time and read the instructions at www.protinting.com.au carefully you will be fine. The correct tools are also a must, the wrong tools will leave water bubbles under the film and cause air bubbles once that water dries.

  • Can I tint my FRONT WINDSCREEN?

    No it is illegal to tint you front windscreen.

  • Which film will reduce the HEAT the best?

    Heavy metalized films give the best heat rejection rating, as the more metal in the film the more heat it will reject. The silver mirror films are best for heat rejection as they simply just reflect the heat.

  • What's the difference between DYED & METALIZED films?

    Metallized films reject heat by reflecting it before it can be transferred through the glass and have a longer life span than dyed films. Dyed films absorb heat onto the glass and only loose the heat with the wind speed traveling past the glass. Dyed films will bubble and go purple over time and don't last as long as metalized films.

  • Why do films go PURPLE?

    Dyed films will go purple over time, some within months or a couple of years depending on the sun exposure. Some lower quality metalized films will go purple over time as well because they only have a very small amount of metalizing done to them, just to get them onto the metalized film market. The films go purple because the UV bleaches the dye in the film.

  • Why do films BUBBLE?

    Bubbling is also a problem that dyed films suffer from, the bubbles are a result of a failure in the adhesive system due to high exposure to UV rays. This happens to dyed films because they are less resistant to UV rays.

  • How dark can I tint my car LEGALLY?

    In most states in Australia the legal limit is 35% VLT (visual light transmittance). This means that there must be at least 35% of the light transferring through the glass.
