For many years, window films have been applied to glass using water and soap solutions. The soap allows the tinter to manipulate and position the film on the glass so that it fits to the edges of the window frame. This non chemical formula is safe to use, odorless, doesn’t have any harmful effects on the interior of homes or vehicles, and works perfectly for window film application. However, it provides no strengthening component to the glass itself.
Glass, although it appears smooth actually contains many microscopic pits, valleys, and defects. The traditional method of using soap water to apply window film adds no structural benefit. But there is new technology which is a replacement for soap water that bonds with glass making it stronger: C-bond.
Authorized window film dealers like us, Professional Window Tinting, are now using c-bond as an option to soap water substitute to give customers unparalleled value. Not only are we providing you with the highest quality window films on the market, but we are also installing it with state of the art technology which will allow the film quicker dry times, neater finished appearances due to smoother glass surfaces, and an increased structural integrity of your glass of up to 100%!
