Cleaning Window Film
Cleaning should be done using a non-abrasive window cleaning solution, and wiped off with a soft towel or a micro fibre. Windex, alcohol or ammonia should not be used. At PH Solar, we offer a premium glass cleaner that is safe for all window tints.
Common Defects Misinterpreted
After the installation of window films, certain vehicles may have a series of dots around the edge of the rear window. This is also known as the dot matrix, and is applied on the glass by the factory. When the window film is placed on top, you may notice a hazy area until it is fully dried. This is a minor but unavoidable misinterpreted defect.
Our professional installers guarantee their best installations, but as an aftermarket installation, there may be very minor and unnoticeable dust particles depending on the cleanness of the vehicle.
