  • How do I clean tinted windows?
    The good news is that the coated finish reduces the need for cleaning and the risk of scratching. However, you can use a damp cloth or a squeegee with detergent and water to remove marks if and when necessary.
  • What is allowed?
    In the UK, the tints on cars is very closely monitored. In terms of the rules, these are slightly different depending on when the car was first used. If the car was first used on or after 1 April 1985, the front windscreen must allow at least 75% of light through, and the front side windows must allow at least 70%. For cars used before 1 April 1985, the front windscreen and front side windows must allow at least 70% of light through. The good news is, there are no laws or restrictions for tinting rear windscreens or rear passenger windows. Although not an MOT requirement, failure to comply with these regulations is illegal and can result in receipt of a prohibition notice, stopping you from using the vehicle until the tints are removed, a penalty notice or a court summons, as well as the possibility of invalidating your insurance. You are also not permitted to sell a vehicle with illegal windscreen and front window tints.
  • What do the different percentages/levels of tint mean?
    Window film percentages stand for the light transmission, or in other words, the amount of light that is allowed through the film. When looking at percentages, the lower the percentage, the darker the film. We offer four tint shades for vehicles: Limousine (approx. 5% sunlight penetration), Dark Tint (approx. 20% sunlight penetration), Medium Tint (approx. 35% sunlight penetration) and Light Tint (approx. 50% sunlight penetration).

  • How long does it take to tint my windows?
    Tinting windows takes time and patience, as well as precise hand work and attention to detail. We would never rush a job at the expense of quality. In addition, rushing the process can result in the tints bubbling, peeling or fading early. Overall, the amount of time it takes to install window tints will largely depend on the type, model and size of your car, as well as the type of tint you have chosen.

  • How do I maintain a vehicle wrap?
    Don’t wash your car for at least a week after the film has been applied. After that, you can wash your car by hand using a mild detergent with no other additives such as wax. You can use a brushless car wash, just don’t use the wax option. We recommend washing your car regularly, taking particular care with matte or textured wraps, as they require a bit more care. Be careful when using high-pressure cleaners, keep the temperature below 60°C, spray from a distance of of at least 50cm and don’t spray at the edges.
  • Why should I choose vinyl wrap over paint?
    Car wrapping is a lot more cost effective than any labour-intensive paint job. Vinyl wraps can last for many years, and the film actually protects the original paint of the car from chips and scratches. Additionally, car wraps are completely reversible, so if you want the car to go back to the way it was, you can.
  • Can vinyl wrapping damage my car?
    We only use high quality vinyl wraps, which are applied on top of your car’s original paint and are designed to be completely removable.

However, if there is any damage such as chips or your car has had paint repairs, there is a risk that this could worsen if the vinyl is removed.

  • Do I need to prep my car in any way before wrapping?
    Yes please. It is very important that we receive the car in the best possible condition, so free of dust, dirt, mud, oil, or anything else that would stop the vinyl from being applied properly. Failure to do so can lead to delays in work completion as well as extra costs.
  • What is vinyl wrapping?
    Vinyl wrapping is the process of covering your car in thin, adhesive vinyl. It’s a great way of changing the look of your vehicle without using expensive paint respraying. It’s also really customisable and can be applied to the whole car or just selected panels.

    Insurance companies and the DVLA will need to be informed of a complete colour change. It is however a fairly quick and straightforward process.
  • How long does PPF last?
    This will depend on a few factors, such as how well the vehicle is looked after, the amount of UV exposure and discoloration from the sun, wear and tear, how often the car has been detailed etc. In general terms though, PPF can last between 7 and 10 years.
  • Will removing PPF damage my paintwork?
    It is highly unlikely that removing PPF will damage the original paintwork of your car. The only reason this could happen is if the original paintwork is damaged or of poor quality. In this instance, there is a small risk that removing the film will remove some of the paint at the same time, although our expert installers will of course do their best to prevent this. For this reason, we would highly recommend you thoroughly inspect your paintwork before booking your car in, and we also will do a check before application as well.
  • Is PPF worth it?
    There are a lot of benefits to installing PPF to your car, with the primary benefit being that it will protect your car from the elements and general wear and tear of driving. This could be stone chips, small scuffs and scratches, bug marks, and every day road debris. Not just is this useful for aesthetic reasons, but will also help maintain the value of your car, as your paintwork will look like new.
  • How do I clean and maintain my car after PPF has been applied?
    We recommend waiting at least 7 days before washing your car after the film has been applied. After that, cleaning and maintaining your car is not much different to before PPF has been applied. The main things to remember is that when using a pressure washer, to avoid pointing it directly at the edges, and remain 2-3 feet away to prevent lifting. You should also avoid the use of harsh chemicals such as petroleum or kerosene.
  • How is Paint Protection Film applied?
    Before we apply the film to the surface of your car, we design and pre-cut the specific panels with highest levels of precision. This means that we don’t have to cut the film once it’s applied to the vehicle, and we can apply the film using specific products and expert methods, leaving a perfect finish virtually invisible to the eye.
  • What is Paint Protection Film (PPF)?
    Paint Protection Film is a virtually invisible thermoplastic urethane film. It can be applied to any painted area of a car in order to protect the paint from stone chips, bug splatters, light scratches and other road debris. You can choose to apply the film to the entire vehicle, or only have it applied to the front end or any other specific painted areas that you’d like protected.
  • Can Paint Protection Film be removed?
    Yes, our films can be safely removed without leaving any residue or damage to the surface, so your car will look good as new. The film should be removed by a professional to ensure it has been taken off at the correct temperature to prevent any peeling, so if you want to remove your PPF, just get in touch.
  • Is Paint Protection Film really self-healing?
    Yes it is, although only to a certain extent of course. The film is designed to self-heal light scratches and light stone chips. The top coat is the self-healing layer, but if that layer is penetrated, the film will not heal. The time it takes for a scratch to heal will depend on the severity of the scratch and the ambient temperature. Minor scratches can usually heal within an hour in warm weather, but can take longer in colder weather.
